As we get ready for the month of August, plenty of people will be preparing for fantasy football. Every season, people are on the lookout for potential fantasy football sleepers to go after. Here is a look at a potential option to go after at every major position.
Quarterback – Sam Bradford (St. Louis Rams)
It is a fair assessment to say that Sam Bradford has underachieved up to this point in his career. A big reason why he has underachieved is because of injuries that have certainly piled up. He will be returning from a torn ACL, and that could be alarming for some. However, he has some nice, young talent surrounding him in a make or break year for his career. Expect him to answer the bell and be a solid option in deeper leagues or as a backup.
Running Back – Devonta Freeman (Atlanta Falcons)
Now that the team is mostly healthy, the Atlanta Falcons want to win now. In order to be a little bit more successful than last year, they need to be solid with the passing and running game. No one stepped up in 2013 as a featured running back, and that has opened the door for Freeman. He will need to battle with Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers, but his chances look good as of right now.
Wide Receiver – Jarrett Boykin (Green Bay Packers)
With a loaded roster, some might wonder how Boykin will even receive enough targets to warrant being considered one of the best fantasy football sleepers. He is entering his 3rd year, and he will definitely be battling with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb to receive touches. However, Green Bay runs plenty of three receiver sets, and there is also a chance of injury always looming. The Packers will be looking to put on an offensive clinic all season long. Expect him to be one of the top fantasy football sleepers available.
Tight End – Zach Ertz (Philadelphia Eagles)
At this point in time, it seems silly to overlook anyone on the Philadelphia Eagles. Their offense should be potent once again in 2014, although there will be some new faces. Ertz will be much more comfortable as a second-year player, and that means he could have a lot more success at tight end. He will be a nice safety option for Nick Foles to throw the football to.
