Sleeper is the fun buzz word for fantasy football drafts, but in truth, sleepers don’t exist anymore. With the wealth of knowledge at your fingertips, it’s nearly impossible to find players that no one is covering.Randall Cobb Jersey What exists these days are underrated players – players at each position who aren’t getting as much love in drafts but can turn the tide in your favor this fantasy season.

ELI MANNING, QB, New York Giants

Prior to last season, Manning was coming off two straight top 8 finishes at quarterback.Clay Matthews Jersey In each of those two seasons, Manning had at least 4,410 passing yards and 30 touchdowns. After a down year in which Manning ”only” threw for 4,027 yards and 26 touchdowns,Jordy Nelson Jersey some fantasy owners are ready to write him off. Don’t make that mistake. The Giants didn’t have any terrific options after Odell Beckham with Victor Cruz a shell of his former self, a rookie receiver in Sterling Shepard and little-to-no talent at the tight end position. Shepard did catch eight touchdowns,Eddie Lacy Jersey but that’s a testament to his skills and those of Manning. Now, Brandon Marshall is in town, pushing Shepard to No. 3 on the depth chart and giving the Giants one of the best receiver trios in the league. As for Marshall, he and Beckham ranked first and second in team red zone target percentages last year. While they won’t do that again as teammates, it tells you how valuable a presence Marshall can be in the red zone. Add to that a pure pass-catching tight end in Evan Engram from the draft and a healthy Shane Vereen, and Manning has more weapons than ever and a situation priming him for a bounce-back season.
