A sleeper quarterback 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. Average Draft Positions (ADP) are taken from MyFantasyLeague.com using only recent drafts.
The Average Draft order shows a general picture of how your draft will happen and where values/sleepers and bad values/busts likely exist. green highlight means the player is a good value that could be taken earlier. A red highlight signifies a bad value or at least too high of a risk for that spot.

Best of the Rest
Philip Rivers (IND) – Sure, the Colts looked bad without Andrew Luck last year but Rivers was at least the No. 13 fantasy quarterback for years with the Chargers. He’s much closer to Luck than he is to Jacoby Brissett. And Colts have one of the easiest passing schedules too.
Derek Carr (OAK) – Carr spent his entire career around being the No. 18 fantasy quarterback and “he may finally have receivers” (Part II).
