1 Fantasy Football Sleeper For Each Position

Fantasy football is forever. It never ends. We never stop predictions, connecting the dots, guesstimating, and just overall obsessing over the upcoming season.  Every year we try to find the next Jimmy Graham, the next Zac Stacy, the next Victor Cruz. It all starts here, before the season. Here are a few sleepers…

 

Quarterback

Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins – We all know what he can do, but after a horrendous year, RG3 should rebound. He was coming off a signicant knee injury. The only thing we learned is that he is not Adrian Peterson. Will extended time off, and more time to heal, RG3 should rebound and run more in 2014, which makes him a hot fantasy commodity.

Predictions: 3,400 passing yards, 21 TDs, 7 INTs, 650 rushing yards, 6 TDs.

 

Running Back

Khiry Robinson, New Orleans Saints – The New Orleans Saints have a plethora of running backs, but Khiry Robinson really stood out last season. He looked like a bulldozer running and he may end up splitting carries with Pierre Thomas. He also ran well at the Seahawks in the post season with over 50 yards rushing and a touchdown. Coming out of West Texas A&M he’s bound to prove people wrong, and you can tell that he thinks that way just by the way he runs.

Predictions: 140 carries, 630 rushing yards, 6 TDs.

 

Wide Receiver

Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings – He came on the latter half of the year, around Week 12 to be exact where he recorded his of THREE rushing touchdowns. If you extrapolate is numbers of Week 12 and on, he would have finished with 52 catches for 700 yards with 9.6 TDs, but what is insane are his RUSHING numbers…. 32 carries for 499 yards and 9.6 TDs. So almost 1200 total yards and TWENTY touchdowns?! Whoa. I think his receiving numbers will go up now that Vikings have seen what he can do. It took them forever to realize that.

Predicitions: 67 receptions, 900 receiving yards, 7 TDs, 25 carries, 300 yards, 3 TDs.

 

Tight End

Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs – After spending all season on IR, Travis Kelce will finally get his chance in 2014. The Chiefs are not particularly strong at tight end and Alex Smith could greatly benefit from a “security blanket”. At 6’5, 255 pounds, Kelce is a big target. Alex Smith doesn’t throw down the field often, and Kelce could be the beneficiary of those shorter routes that Alex Smith loves to throw. His yardage might not be high, but he may have a higher TD total, a few of which coming in the red-zone.

Predictions: 47 receptions, 627 receiving yards, 7 TDs.
