2015 NFL Fantasy Football Draft Sleepers
With the start of the NFL Kickoff being only 53 days away, that means Fantasy Football Leagues across the country are gearing up for their 2015 NFL Fantasy Football Drafts in the next couple of weeks. It’s anxiety times for Fantasy Football owners throughout the nation as draft day decisions in August could cost you a chance at making your leagues’ playoffs in December. You must draft wisely, which is why Analyzed Sports will try to help you stay away from this year’s fantasy bust’s. Anyone who has played fantasy football knows that all the top players in the draft will be selected in the first few rounds, but what makes a great fantasy GM is being able to find jewels, or sleepers in the later rounds of the draft.
Sleeper picks are normally picks that some fantasy owners may not be looking to draft as a starter. Some owners may not be aware of the players potential, or just may not be interested in picking these particular players for whatever the reason may be. As a fantasy football owner, I have won my share of titles in some big money leagues going back to the early 2000’s, so I will be sharing my knowledge as an expert with my top sleeper picks. Without further due, here are some of my top sleeper picks for the 2015 NFL Fantasy Football draft. Good Luck!
RYAN TANNEHILL, QB – MIAMI DOLPHINS :
Ryan Tannehill is my top sleeper Quarterback for the 2015 NFL Fantasy Football season. Last year Tannehill threw for over 4000 yards, with 27 Touchdowns to 12 INT’s. With the additions of the 14th pick out of Louisville WR DeVante Park, and the former Cleveland Brown TE Jordan Cameron, expect the TD’s to go up around 37 and the yards thrown to 4500. He also finished 9th among all the Quarterbacks in Fantasy Football points last season.
JOSEPH RANDLE, RB – DALLAS COWBOYS :
Randle was a solid backup to the 2014 NFL’s leading rusher in DeMarco Murray last season. This year Randle will have more opportunity with Murray traveling to Philadelphia during free agency for a chance at more money. Randle averaged 6.7 yards per carry while only getting over 300 attempts last season as the backup. Word is Randle has got all the first team reps while Darren McFadden is getting mostly second team. This season will be a running back committee in Dallas, but Randle has proven when giving the opportunities he can get it done. I see 10 TD’s and 1000 yards this season for the 3rd year running back out of Oklahoma State. Draft him around the 7-8th round.
DeVante’ Parker , WR – Miami Dolphins :
Many Fantasy owners outside of the Louisville, KY. area may not know much about this top wide out, but Fantasy owners familiar with the Louisville Cardinals, or ACC Football are aware of this exceptional talent. Parker should be ready Week 1 due to there being some concerns with his foot injury, but he’s needs to be giving serious consideration in all formats in any Fantasy Football draft this season. During his senior year at UL, Parker only played half the season due to injury, but was able to put up almost 900 yards receiving averaging 19.7 yards per catch. This 6’3 187 pound beast reminds me alot of Dez Bryant, were you can throw it up and he will definitely go up and get it. DeVante’ will probably go between the 10-12th round unless you’re drafting in the Louisville, KY area, because those owners may risk a higher draft pick, so no one will take him before they do.
TRAVIS KELCE, TE – KANSAS CITY CHEIFS:
Travis Kelce played along Anthony Fasano last season and still managed to finish 6th among Tight Ends in fantasy football points. Of course the Jimmy Graham’s and Rob Gronkowski’s will be off the board early, so the next TE’s in line will be Zach Ertz, Jordan Cameron, Jason Witten, Martellus Bennett, and Travis Kelce. My pick around round 5 or 6 will be Kelce, because now he’s no longer sharing TE responsibilities with Fasano since Anthony is not with Kansas City any longer. I can see Kelce receiving 1000 yards this season along with 8 touchdowns, which is what you want your tight end getting.
