2018 Fantasy Football Sleepers

A list of undervalued players to target in 2018 fantasy football leagues.

Grabbing a sleeper pick during your draft and watching it pay off for you every game during the season is an amazing feeling. In fact, there may be nothing more satisfying in fantasy sports than hitting the jackpot on a sleeper pick.

To aid you in your quest for the elusive fantasy football sleeper, we've put together a list of potential breakout or bounce-back players to help you win this season.

This list is in alphabetical order and the degree to which these players qualify as sleepers obviously depends on your specific league. We've included each player's projected stats for the upcoming season so that you can properly evaluate them.

The Red Rifle fired a lot of blanks last season. Dalton posted a career low in yardage and his lowest completion percentage and YPA since his rookie season. He was miserable throwing deep, completing just 18.6 percent of his attempts of more than 20 yards, lower than any quarterback with 20 such attempts save for Eli Manning. It wasn't all Dalton's fault, though. He got little help from an offensive line that ranked 21st in sack rate (7.6 percent), as downfield routes didn't have enough time to develop. To remedy that problem, the Bengals traded for left tackle Cordy Glenn and drafted center Billy Price in the first round. The biggest change, though, is the playbook. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, who took over in Week 3 after Ken Zampese was fired, spent the offseason installing a new scheme with promises of a fast-paced, field-stretching attack. Better health will help, too. A.J. Green endured a late-season knee injury last year and first-round pick John Ross missed most of the season with a shoulder injury. Now healthy, Ross' game-changing speed figures to be a prime part of the new deep-ball offense. Expecting Tyler Eifert to play a full season, which he's never done, seems foolish, but 6-6 tight end Tyler Kroft turned 12 red-zone targets into seven touchdowns a year ago and figures to be involved again at the goal line. Dalton also has a new quarterbacks coach in Alex Van Pelt, who tutored Aaron Rodgers the last four years. That can't hurt.
