15 Fantasy Football Sleepers to Target After Pick 150

The burn-and-churn strategy for re-draft rosters is typically forgotten over the summer with best ball taking precedence. But any winning player would be the first to tell you that upside is what matters most in the later rounds, knowing we can always shed the dead weight to get ahead of potential Free Agency Auction Budget (FAAB) eruptions weekly.

These are my favorite fliers with an Underdog Average Draft Position (ADP) of 144.0 (Round 12) or later including deep sleepers for expanded 20-round leagues.

Michael Carter, RB, Jets - Underdog ADP 149.5

In their first preseason game together, Carter started over Breece Hall and ultimately mirrored the second-round rookie in snaps (10) with the first-string offense on the field. While that doesn’t sound enticing for either player, the difference is Carter is usually available to open the 12th round. This admittedly could be an ugly situation altogether given that New York was one of only seven teams to average fewer than 61 plays per game last year, but the discount to buy into an ambiguous duo is hard to ignore. Reminder Carter flashed elite hands out of the backfield as a collegiate player himself, averaging 23.6 receptions and 7.8 yards per catch across his last three years with the Tar Heels.

Khalil Herbert, RB, Bears - 152

The only running back in the league to eclipse the century mark against the Bucs last year, Herbert has consistently mixed in with the first-string offense in camp and is being treated by drafters as if he didn’t record the higher broken tackle rate than David Montgomery’s (14.6%-13.3%). With no strings attached to the current regime on the final year of his rookie deal, Montgomery’s monopoly with at least 267 touches in each of the last three campaigns is expected to go gently into the night from Week 1 on.
