In conjunction with FNTSY Sports Network, the FSLR Ultimate Sleeper bracket is back for another year, and the march has begun to crown a champion – the king of value for 2015 draft season. FNTSY’s Pat Mayo and FSLR’s Jon Collins discuss each of the first round match ups and pick which 2015 sleepers they think should advance. Check the bracket page for rules, all the match ups and, most importantly, info on the authors who have contributed to this project. As a reader, your job is simple: Vote for the author you think made the most compelling case, and/or for the sleeper you think provides the best draft day value at the end of the piece.

Voting closes Friday at Midnight Eastern.

2015 Sleepers Bracket – Travaris Cadet vs Joe Flacco

Mayo on Cadet…

Sleepers are subjective. One man/woman/other’s sleeper is simply known as undervalued by another. However, there are a handful of players every season that make Rip van Winkle seem like the perfect spokesman for POWERTHIRST. With an ADP (PPR) behind the Browns Defense, Tim Tebow, and that awful Trent Richardson; Travaris Cadet is that guy in 2015.

Now, don’t get it twisted, if Cadet is going to have value, it will only be in PPR leagues.

Just a glimpse at the Patriots depth chart immediately reveals the gaping hole New England has for its well-established Shane Vereen/Danny Woodhead/Kevin Faulk role in the backfield, And Cadet has the best chance to run (receive) away with it. It’s essentially between him and Brandon Bolden, and if Bolden was going to seize the gig, he’d have done so in one of first three years in New England. Bolden’s a special teams asset, that’s where his value rests. Those skills will keep him in uniform every week, but he’ll remain a limited contributor in the offense. You’ll likely forget he’s even on the team until he sneaks on the field for a series in Week 7; his dreads will part, revealing he spells Bolden with an e - then it’ll be wiped from your mind again, Men in Black style. Cadet, he’ll be given the opportunity to claim the role and make a Fantasy impact as early as Week 1.

In 2014, Vereen suited up all 16 games, resulting in 77 targets (fourth among RBs) despite playing just 53% of snaps. Tack on his 96 rushes, and Vereen ended up as the 20th highest scoring PPR running back. The season previous, the pass-catching specialist saw 69 looks (12th) in just eight games while playing 47% of offense snaps. In the two years, Vereen garnered 62% and 57% of the RB targets in New England. The good news for Cadet? Vereen’s now sporting Giants’ blue. So, not only is there clear path for Cadet, his past work as a pass-first running back in New Orleans makes him the ideal candidate.

Cadet isn’t a lottery ticket, you won’t be able to retire on your winnings if he hits, but he can return ten times his draft day value. Plus, as a potential low-end RB2 in the last round, he affords you the flexibility to load up with safer WRs, and/or GRONK/QB at the top of drafts. Far too many people are targeting RBs early, even with their elevated bust rates and greater turnover at the position. If you decide to forgo RBs until the fourth or fifth round, potentially later, Cadet is a perfect late addition to stabilize your roster. Sometimes Fantasy football leagues are won when you nab Odell Beckham Jr. off the waiver wire in Week 5 and watch him put up historic numbers, but most years, it’s all about netting a profit on your draft picks. With Cadet’s skill set and opportunity, in a high-scoring offense, he’ll prove a worthy acquisition almost immediately.

2015 Sleepers Bracket – Derek Carr vs Sam Bradford

Ciely on Bradford…

Let’s get it out of the way… Sam Bradford has to stay healthy. We all know that. But just imagine if he does! Under Chip Kelly, the “Eagles quarterback” (that’s anyone who has started for the Eagles… because there have been plenty already) is a Top 10 Fantasy QB. Two years ago, Bradford was on pace for a Top 8 QB finish, 3,856 yards and 32 touchdowns. You don’t think Bradford can easily hit that mark, and then some, in Philly?

Bradford is a very smart passer who can keep this Eagles offense cruising along at its breakneck pace. He also has better weapons than he ever had while in St. Louis. The Eagles ran 170 more plays than the Rams did last year (1,127 to 957) and averaged a whopping 82.1 yards per game more (396.8 to 314.7). Oh, and they only scored 150 more points or 9.4 points per game too (474 to 324)!

You want to tell me there isn’t huge potential here?

When it comes to Fantasy Football, what position scores the most? Quarterback. And what position often returns the biggest value when drafting sleepers late? Yep, quarterback. With this high-octane offense, a terrific collection of offensive talent (and offensive line) and a healthy 16-game season, Bradford has the potential to reach the Top 5 for Fantasy quarterbacks… yes, Top FIVE.

Fantasy Football: 2015 RB Rankings – Who to Take in the 1st Round?

FNTSY Sports Network’s Pat Mayo and Chris Meaney debate the top of their RB Rankings and where they believe each running back should be selected in 2015 Fantasy Football drafts. Is Eddie Lacy really worth the top pick? Does Adrian Peterson‘s time away from the field concern you? How about Le’Veon Bell‘s suspension? Where should you target DeMarco Murray? And, if you face this draft day conundrum, who are you siding with, C.J. Anderson or Marshawn Lynch?
