Every year people in my Fantasy Football leagues take guys that happen to remain in the ESPN system after retiring such as Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco with their last couple picks in the draft. But, what if I were to tell you that every single pick matters… I know, right? Crazy talk.
Well every single pick does matter. The last two rounds should ALWAYS be used for your kicker and your defense. ALWAYS. I know, I know, the Seattle defense in the 6th round is always enticing, but what about two years ago when I stole the 3rd-ranked Kansas City defense in the 15th round while stockpiling my running back corps in the middle rounds? You have to draft smart.
Anyway, back to the later rounds. The 12th, 13th, and 14th round draft picks should be used to target the following… A. Backup quarterback. B. Grabbing hand-cuff running back for your RB1 and RB2. 3. Targeting “sleepers”.
And boy-oh-boy are you lucky today. I have broken down the top-10 sleepers for the 2015 Fantasy Football season just for you! There are three quarterbacks, three running backs, two wide receivers, and two tight ends on my list.
