With the 2018 NFL season less than 100 days away, it’s time to look at how to go about winning your fantasy football draft with these five key sleepers to target in the later rounds.
The 2018 NFL season can’t get here soon enough, and fantasy football players around the globe are gearing up for what promises to be another exciting campaign.
Sure, landing the elite-name players in your fantasy drafts are great. Not unlike the NFL itself, your first-, second- and third-round picks will garner plenty of attention. Those guys will be your mainstays; the point-getters you hope can carry your team to a championship.
But any veteran fantasy football player knows championships are either won, or lost, in the mid-to-late rounds of the draft. Same goes with the waiver wire.
A year ago, New Orleans Saints then-rookie running back Alvin Kamara was looked at as a third-string option behind veterans Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram. By the season’s end, though, Kamara led the NFL in average rush yards per attempt (6.1), forced Peterson out of the equation and is now projected as the fifth best tailback option this season, per ESPN.
Who’ll be the next guy?
Those are the players you want to find on draft day. And in case you’re wondering who the next sleeper stud will be, here are five options you should strongly consider.
