Other Sleepers and Value Plays:  Quarterbacks  |  Running Backs  |  Wide Receivers  |  Tight Ends

You cannot, in my opinion, call anyone drafted to be a starter as a "sleeper". To me a sleeper is a player taken as a backup who ends up worthy of being a starter or at least far outplays the draft slot where you selected him. Below are players ranked by the current Average Draft Position (ADP) as found on considering all scoring systems as a general basis. I'm assuming a league of 12 teams where most would take five running backs and start at least two and maybe three as a flex play. Therefore, the first 30 are taken to be starters and the rest are considered roster backups.

This page has been completely updated using ADP values from August 23rd. This is the final update.
