Fantasy Sleepers for 2021 Drafts

When it comes to drafting, you always want to try to maximize value with your picks, especially after the first few rounds. Below is a list of players that are not necessarily sleepers, but players that I think have quality value for where their current ADP is at. 

T.J. Hockenson

While currently being drafted as the 6th tight end in the 5th round, I believe Hockenson will finish in the top 3. The Lions are going to finish at the bottom of the league and will be forced to pass a ton. With the departures of Kenny Gollday and Marvin Jones, a TON of targets opened up for this offense. While they did sign Tyrell Williams, Breshad Perriman, and Kalif Raymond, Hockenson has the highest ceiling of the bunch.

Chase Edmonds

The Cardinals may have signed James Conner, Chase Edmonds should still be the main back in Arizona. Any athletic running back of a top 5 offense will always have tons of opportunities. I think he can be a top 20, maybe even top 15 fantasy running back. He is currently being drafted as the 26th RB.

Laviska Shenault Jr

The slot receiver for the Jaguars should have plenty of targets and may serve as the safety blanket for rookie Trevor Lawrence. The Jaguars also have one of the worst defenses in the league and will force them to abandon the run in most games. Shenault is a later round sleeper that could finish as a top 25 WR in PPR leagues. He is currently being drafted as the 40th receiver.

Darnell Mooney

No matter who is under center, Mooney should have plenty of volume as the Bears’ number two receiver. He showed plenty of flashes last year, especially in the second half. He is currently being drafted as the 51st WR in PPR leagues. Mooney has the potential to be a solid flex option in twelve team leagues. 

Terrace Marshall Jr.

Marshall is a player that is going undrafted who could be a player that could turn into someone who helps during bye weeks. He played with Carolina’s offensive coordinator in college and could see plenty of action in their offense. The Panthers were not great in the red zone as they finished 28th in red zone TD scoring percentage last year. Robby Anderson nor DJ Moore are red zone threats and Marshall could help their woes.
