7 Sleepers to Target in NFL.com Fantasy Leagues
Average draft position fluctuates throughout the months leading up to the NFL regular season, and never more so than when teams hit the field in pads for the first time. Players drastically fall up and down the draft board as injury news, depth chart battles, and the like begin to trickle out of training camps and preseason games. It’s easy for players to get lost in the weeds, being completely forgotten about as we try to adjust on the fly to the newest available information. That’s why an instrument like the ADP Bargains tool can be such an asset. By pairing 4for4’s rankings with NFL.com’s ADP we can see the players with the most significant discrepancies and thus target the best values.
Below I have highlighted seven such players who are going too late in drafts and should outproduce their current standing on fantasy draft boards. They represent several of my personal favorite ADP outliers, but the tool will show you even more options while rankings and ADP continue to move up and down throughout the rest of the offseason.
Rhamondre Stevenson, RB - Patriots
With 30-year-old James White retiring due to the same hip injury that forced Ryan Fitzpatrick into retirement, and Brandon Bolden following Josh McDaniels to Las Vegas, the coveted New England pass-catching back role could be served to Rhamondre Stevenson on a silver platter to Rhamondre Stevenson. Despite playing 138 fewer snaps than Damien Harris, Stevenson (18) only had three fewer targets than his counterpart over the course of the season and, maybe better yet, allowed only one pressure in pass protection.
In addition to passing-game increases, Stevenson may have done enough in his rookie season to begin eating into Harris’ ground game work this year as well. Of 50 qualifying running backs (min. 100 carries), Stevenson ranked sixth in yards after contact/attempt (3.1) and seventh in broken-plus-missed tackles (18.8%), while Harris ranked 30th and 25th respectively in those two categories. Stevenson has a definite path to see more of the field in 2022.
