We’ve all been there. The clock is ticking, you’re up next, and all the obvious choices are already there. TheNFL Fantasy Draft is perhaps one of the most exciting, yet stressful nights sports fans can endure throughout the season.
We already know that Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Derrick Henry, Davante Adams, and Travis Kelce will be studs and get you dozens of points week in and week out. But what happens when you reach the final rounds of the draft and have no clue as to how to fill up your rosters?
Well, that’s where sleepers come in. And, luckily for you, us at Bolavip have put together a list of the best sleeper you could target for your NFL Fantasy team. Spoiler alert: It does have one player from the Super Bowl winners.
2021 NFL Fantasy: Best Sleeper Per Position
QB: Drew Lock
Ok, we’ve been here over and over, but it’s finally make-or-break time for Drew Lock. He’s done absolutely nothing to earn a starting spot thus far and will now have Teddy Bridgewater breathing on his neck so that pressure should bring the best out of him.
Lock has looked pretty well in the preseason and he was expected to break out last year. Jerry Jeudy is also expected to take a step forward and the Denver Broncos gave him some interesting weapons. It’s now or never for him.
WR: Rondale Moore
It’s not a secret that DeAndre Hopkins is going to be the focal point of the Arizona Cardinals’ passing game. But with Christian Kirk being kind of unimpressive and potentially entering his year with the team, we expect Rondale Moore to be a bright spot in this offense.
Moore will have to outplay A.J. Green to get a decent target share but that shouldn’t be difficult considering Green has barely been able to play over the past couple of seasons. He’s looked great during training camp and looks like an NFL-ready kind of rookie.
RB: Giovanni Bernard
We know what you’re thinking: Giovanni Bernard? In 2021? Well, yes. The former Cincinnati Bengals running back won’t be a bell-cow running back in that pass-friendly offense but we’ve seen what Tom Brady can do with his pass-catching backs.
Bernard has reliable hands and can do a lot of damage on screen passes. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will give Brady more freedom this year and Bernard can put up James White kind of numbers throughout the season.
TE: Tyler Higbee
Maybe Tyler Higbee isn’t much of a sleeper considering he had a couple of big games last season. Then again, he was as inconsistent as the whole Los Angeles Rams offense was with Jared Goff in the backfield.
But now that Matthew Stafford is in town, we absolutely love Higbee’s upside. He’s a physical specimen that can run in the open field and Stafford loves getting his tight ends involved. He’ll be a huge threat in the endzone.
DST: Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns added Jadeveon Clowney, John Johnson, Troy Hill, and rookie Greg Newsome to revamp their ever-struggling defense. Add Myles Garrett to that mix and you have a pretty solid defense right there.
While they may not make big plays week in and week out, expect this new-look defense to keep most of their rivals in check and allow few points more often than not. They’re due for a tough Week 1 matchup vs. the Chiefs but things get smoother for them after that.
