Everybody loves finding gems late in Fantasy drafts, but with Fantasy Football becoming more popular and the general public becoming more educated, landing true sleepers has gotten harder. Players you might be thinking of as 2019 sleepers -- Chris Godwin, Kerryon Johnson, D.J. Moore, to name a few -- already have seen their average draft position (ADP) rise as high as the fourth round. And as the Twitter hype continues to build this offseason, those names might go even higher.
Before you enter any kind of Fantasy football league or begin your 2019 Fantasy football season research, you'll want to see Jacob Gibbs' analysis and breakdown of some of the most overlooked late-round sleepers.
Gibbs is a data-driven Daily Fantasy Sports specialist who has never had a losing season. Previously an analyst at numberFire, Jacob got his start in DFS in 2013, turning a $25 deposit into nearly $3,000 in his first season. He also develops proprietary rankings and projections for NFL season-long and dynasty leagues.
One thing we can tell you: Gibbs is expects a major breakout from Pittsburgh Steelers third-year receiver James Washington in 2019.
"Antonio Brown leaves behind a massive 26 percent target market share, a large portion of which could go to Pittsburgh's 2017 second-round pick, James Washington. JuJu Smith-Schuster's role will increase, but his 24 percent target share can only rise so much." Gibbs said. "Washington could see over 100 targets in one of the NFL's best offenses. It isn't easy to find that type of upside in the double-digit rounds."
Gibbs also has identified a running back who could end up as a bellcow for one of the NFL's most exciting offenses with a strong training camp and preseason, yet can be had in the 10th round or later in most Fantasy drafts. This late-round RB isn't even on the radar of most Fantasy drafters, but he could emerge as a difference maker in Fantasy if he can earn his coaches trust, so you ABSOLUTELY need to see the complete breakdown.
So which players offer massive upside at a significant discount in 2019 drafts? And which late-round RB has a chance to become the lead back on one of the NFL's most explosive offenses? ... Join SportsLine right now to see Jacob Gibbs' Top 5 late-round sleepers for 2019!
