Fantasy Football: 10 Late Round Sleepers

RotoExperts Staff August 13, 2014 12:10AM EDT
FNTSY Sports Network’s Pat Mayo & Laura Diakun review Mayo’s favorite late round sleepers entering 2014 Fantasy Football drafts. They chat about the strategy surrounding drafting sleepers, specifically, how you shouldn’t take too many. Plus, why sleepers don’t need to morph into superstars to be worthy of a late round selection, and just need to be serviceable starters. Mining value by hitting on a breakthrough player or merely acquiring trade assets for your bench outside of the Top 125 picks is a surefire way to vault to the standings summit.
