Fantasy Football Sleepers – Breaking Down One Prospect Per Position

As summers is coming to a close it is time for all Football fans to start thinking about their fantasy foot ball picks. The annual draft causes tension and even the best of buddies will find themselves trash-talking about each other’s teams. Making a fantasy football team can take a lot of research to get it right. Choosing the best players for each position is common method, but by doing so some of the “biggest sleepers” are overlooked. Below are few examples of sleepers that are predicted to do well in the coming 2015-2016 season.Quarterback Eli Manning:

Even though Manning has proven himself with 30 touchdowns and 4,410 throwing yards in 2014 alone, he is hardly ever included on the top 10 list of quarterbacks. Part of this could be attributed to the 2014 6 win-10 loss record for the he New York Giants. Manning should be included on everyone’s fantasy football team because both of his receivers, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr. are going to be playing at the same time. They have proven in the past that they can catch a variety of throws from Manning and run over 1,200 yards. There is also Shane Vereen working with Rashad Jennings who are a screen option in the backfield, who will help Manning get the ball into play as fast as he can, and make sure he is not sacked, which has always been a problem.Most people would think that by the age of 34 quarterbacks have already peaked, it has been 4 years since he was last included in the top-10 fantasy football quarterbacks, but everything is in position for Eli Manning to have a great year. Experts predict that Eli Manning will have about 4,600 passing yards and 32 touchdowns in the 2015-2016 season, but at the same time 17 interceptions.

Running Back Isaiah Crowell:

Even though Crowell is under the contract of one of the weaker AFC North teams, the Cleveland Browns. He is expected to have have a good year. With Terrance West losing favor because of an injury, Isaiah Crowell will be seeing most of the touches in the 2015-2016 season. In the previous year he only saw an average of 4 yards every time he was handed the ball, however he was able to score 8 touch downs which shows that he is able to pull his own weight. Those numbers will only increase as Crowell’s has more time with the ball. The Cleveland Browns have a offensive line that works well with his play style, making him an even stronger force. Isaiah Crowell is projected to have over 1,000 rushing yards and around 12 touchdowns.

Wide Receiver Martavis Bryant:

Martavis Bryant was another player that did well even though he did not get much attention in the 2014-2015 season. He was able to run the ball 549 yards, make 26 receptions, and score eight touchdowns. Even with the veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown being Roethlisberger’s favorite, Bryant is sure to see he share of plays when the Pittsburgh Steelers begin their season in September. He has been working on being a player that can run any way that his quarterback and team need him to whether it is just a few yards or the whole field. Spending most of his days at the gym hasn’t hurt his chances either. It is predicted that he will have 65 receptions, score 11 touch downs, and run over 1,000 receiving yards.

Tight End Tyler Eifert:

Tyler Eifert of the Cincinnati Bengals is healthier than ever and has the position all to himself now that Jermaine Gresham is not competing for the starting role. His team’s rough season last year can be attributed to his injury, but now that he is back and has been training harder than ever to get back in shape and make the Bengals a force to be reckoned with. Eifert works well with both wide receivers A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu, and together they will be giving the Quarterback Andy Dalton as many options as possible. Tyler Eifert is expected to make 60 receptions, score 7 touchdowns, and run 820 receiving yards.

Kicker Connor Barth:

Connor Barth is the new kicker for the Denver Broncos. In his past 15 field goal attempts he has been able to make 14 of them. This is great for an aggressive, highly-offensive team like the Broncos, that will undoubtedly find themselves within field goal range multiple times a game. Experts think that Connor Barth will score 39 of the 42 field goals he makes in 2015.

Team Defense of the Miami Dolphins:

It is hard to pick just one person on the Dolphins team. Both of the defensive ends Olivier Vernon and Cameron Wake already make an intimidating wall against anyone who thinks they can make it to the backfield. The addition of Ndamukong Suh only makes their team’s armor even more impenetrable. They are going to be one of the top, if not the top sacking team in the 2015-2016 season. The Miami Dolphins are also expected to make a handful of interceptions, mirroring the 14 interceptions they made last season. It is projected that the team will make 21 interceptions and 45 sacks.
