Want to be ahead of the curve? Finding the right sleeper players can help you win the championship in your league. All rosters must be built with some stars and those players that will surprise people. All leagues will be different. Some of these players may not be drafted in the league you are a part of or you might need to spend a later pick on them in order to secure that player. Because in the end, a sleeper is a player that will surpass is ADP in a league.
Quarterback: Mitchell Trubisky (QB20)
Dropping five spots from where he ended the 2018 season. The Bears have added more pieces on offense for their quarterback to spread the ball around to. Also, add in the work he can do on the run. In 2018 he had 421 yards and 3 touchdowns. That ranked him as the third quarterback for rushing. All of this was also done in only 14 games. This is a player that can truly jump up the board.
Running back: Derrius Guice (RB34)
After missing his whole rookie season due to injury the hype train slowed a little going into 2019. During the preseason, Guice has shown that he is ready to return. Also, the Redskins do not have tons of talent at wide receiver so that will rely on their young running back. This ranking will look way to low at the end of this season.
Wide Receiver: Christian Kirk (WR33)
The stats do not jump out as great for his 2018 season. The Cardinals have gone in a new direction with a new head coach and a rookie quarterback. So, their new offense will be more of an air raid style, which can really add up well for the core of wide receivers. Kirk is at the head of the line for all this work so getting a number one wide receiver this late can truly help you out.
Tight End: Noah Fant (TE20)
Yes, the rookie tight end for Denver. There is some risk with going with a rookie but this position in fantasy is very thing. So, why not try it out. Denver will have either a rookie quarterback in that will want to target his safety blanket or a Flacco who likes to use them as well. Also, they have a defensive-minded head coach who will keep things simple. What out for this name near the end of the season for sure.
Defense: Kansas City Chiefs (DST15)
This defense ended 2018 ranked as number seven on the list. They open 2019 ranked way too low to start. They added some pieces to the good as well. The best thing to look at is their offense. They will continue to move the ball keeping this defense off the field which really helps them out. They could crack the top 5 before the season ends this year. Keep an eye out for them.
