Everyone is always talking about the stars so I decided to talk about the sleepers that could help you win your league. Keep in mind that some of these are subject to change.
1. Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders
Carr is coming off a great 2016 season, where he threw for 28 touchdowns and limited himself to 6 interceptions. Carr isn’t as much of a sleeper as the other 4 but he tends to get overlooked a lot.
2. Kirk Cousin, Washington Redskins
Cousins is coming off of a decent 2016 season, throwing for 4,917 and tacked on 25 touchdowns. Cousins would be a great pick up in the 7th or 8th round, to stack up on good running backs and wide receiver.
3. Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles
Wentz had a solid rookie season, especially during the first month. The Eagles made great effort to improve the wide receivers by adding Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. One thing Wentz looks to improve on is throwing the ball deep.
4. Marcus Mariota, Tennesee Titans
Mariota threw for touchdowns last season in 10 of the first 12 games. The Titans added Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor to this offense and they should help Mariota out a lot. I am predicting a breakout season from him and a great fantasy season.
5. Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Winston is a big steal in my book. You should be able to wait until the 7th or 8th round to draft him. The Buccaneers also got Desean Jackson and O.J. Howard. The Buccaneers already have star wide-outs Mike Evans and Cameron Brate. I expect Winston to throw for 30 plus touchdowns if the running game can get going.
These are 5 guys you can wait a little longer to pick up in your draft. I am expecting a great season from all 5 of these players.
