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 Adam Thielen - Vikings
Thielen is stealin' (rim shot, please! I'll show myself out). Just kidding, but seriously. Thielen is one of our top-40 receivers and his ADP is after the 12th round. He's not exciting. Dare I say this pick is quite vanilla, but he's going to score you some points. Let's not forget he had three 100-yard games last year, including a 200-yarder.
WR Pierre Garcon - 49ers
Garcon has a CBS ADP in the 1th 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
Rookie Mike Williams is out indefinitely. Cue up last year's waiver wire hero, and his current early 11th round ADP. A top-30 WR that late? Score.
WR Mike Wallace - Ravens
After the Ravens signed Jeremy Maclin, Wallace’s ADP has settled in the 9th round. Some drafter prefer Maclin, but there are still more than 200 targets gone from last year. And Wallace is still going a round or two too early there.
WR Martavis Bryant - Steelers
A sleeper score of 30, meaning he's two-to-three rounds too cheap heading into draft seson, and you can snag him in the 5th round. Yes, there is some big-time suspension risk, but pull the trigger for a chance at low-WR1 ceiling production.
WR Sammy Watkins - Rams
After the trade out of Buffalo, his ADP has fallen all the way to the 7th round. I'd argue you are drafting him below his floor there in an offense helmed by a very well respected mind in Sean McVay. The risk is mitigated at that ADP if Watkins is not your WR1 or WR2.
