11 Undervalued Fantasy Football Sleepers on CBS
Comparing the difference between a player's 4for4’s ranking and his CBS ADP allows us to unearth the most undervalued fantasy sleepers on the site.
Eleven of our top CBS sleepers for 2017 are discussed below, followed by two tables that list the fantasy value for every player 4for4 has ranked in the top 200 in PPR and standard. The tables are sorted by Sleeper Score, which is simply ADP minus 4for4 ranking; the higher the Sleeper Score, the more undervalued a player is.

WR Alshon Jeffery - Eagles
I had to check his ADP on CBS twice -- I thought I was drunk. It turns out CBS drafters are the intoxicated ones. Go home, CBS drafters. You’re drunk. Jeffery’s ADP as of August 7th on CBS? 126! 11th round?! There may be an issue with CBS ADP data or incorrect rankings inside the site's draft rooms, but take advantage if you're drafting early. He’s a top-20 upside receiver, because duh.
WR Pierre Garcon - 49ers
Garcon has a CBS ADP in the 11th round. And my God, Garcon is a cheat code. He’s a top-24 WR that should be a target machine, giving him top-20 upside.
WR John Brown - Cardinals
Wide receiver is where we are going to find some monster value in CBS leagues. John Brown is near the top of the charts. He’s going nearly undrafted in the 17th round and is a top-40 WR, as reports are he and the team have learned how to manage his sickle cell trait. He’s worth the flier in the final rounds.
WR Mike Wallace - Ravens
After the Ravens signed Jeremy Maclin, Wallace’s ADP on CBS has fallen to a point where it is in the 200s. He’s going before the final five rounds in other leagues, appropriately might I add. Let’s not forget how pass-happy the Ravens have been in recent years. Even if they try to reel that in a little bit, there are still more than 200 targets gone from last year.
WR Willie Snead - Saints
Like he is on pretty much every other fantasy site, Snead is my favorite WR sleeper on CBS. It’s criminal his ADP is in the 14th round. The Saints have an incredible offense helmed by Drew Brees and Brandin Cooks is gone, yet Snead is still being drafted this low. He’s already been a borderline top-30 WR, but with what could be 20 extra targets this season, a top-20 finish is well within Snead’s range of outcomes. He’s being drafted 10 rounds later than he should be. TEN!
WR Marvin Jones - Lions
Wheras Snead is our top sleeper score player in PPR, Jones is such in standard sleeper score. Jones was reportedly battling a couple of injuries throughout the season last year. That might explain the crazy drop-off in production after a hot start to 2016. Anquan Boldin is gone now, which should free up more targets for Jones, as long as he can fend off tall rookie Kenny Golladay in the preseason (although, both may play in 3WR sets with Golden Tate). Jones isn’t being drafted on CBS, but you should target him as a late-round flier.
