Sleeper, Sleeper, Sleeper

Fantasy owners love a "sleeper." Everyone gravitates to this article in Draft Guides, trying to find that diamond in the rough that emerges as a legit fantasy player. It isn't an exact science by any means, so loading your roster with a bunch of these players isn't a great idea. But targeting a few of these players with the hopes of one or two emerging is a good strategy. Just don't be that owner that has a roster full of high sleeper candidates. That usually spells disaster.
With that lecture out of the way, here are a few of our favorite under the radar players for the coming season.....
Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles. Wentz started off fast last year but faded as the year progressed, showing some chinks in the armor. He is a year older, though, and finally has a legit No. 1 receiver in Alshon Jeffery. Wentz can build on his rookie year and help as a spot starter for fantasy teams. He has the skill set to be a top fantasy player in this league for year to come, which could come this year.
