Super Sleeper: A high risk/potential player who is mostly unknown by many fantasy football players. These players have lots of upside and could surprise with their fantasy output.
We have classified the following players as super sleepers for 2017. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.
|Devontae Booker||RB||DEN||25||1||RB - #68|
|Over 23 games at Utah, Booker gained 3,395 yards with 23 TDs and 80 catches. His missed the end of 2015 due to a torn meniscus in his left knee. Devontae has upside in vision and quickness with questionable speed. He has some ability in the open field while owning an edge in strength. The Broncos gave Booker six games to prove his worth, but he only gained 3.1 yard... Read More|
|Rex Burkhead||RB||NE||27||4||RB - #44|
|Wow. This guy just could be Brady's new security blanket catching three passes a game with red zone opportunities. He went in the 12th round most recently. (Updated: 08/22//17) New England will pay Burkhead about the same money in 2017 as Mike Gillislee. Last year Rex has the best opportunity over four seasons with the Bengals after Gio Bernard wen...

|Tarik Cohen||RB||CHI||22||R||RB - #58|
|The next Darren Sproles? He's nicknamed "The Human Joystick". Incredible speed and vision at only 5-foot-6 and 175 pounds. Runs a 4.4 40 and is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. Youtube sensation. There is some speculation by one of our Bears insiders that Jordan Howard might not be the third down back in favor of Tarik Cohen. If this is the cas... Read More|
|Alvin Kamara||RB||NO||21||R||RB - #48|
|Exposive. There's not much else that needs to be said about this back. Two older running backs on the roster in front of him in a hig powered offense. Kamara can take it to the house. You could do much worse with your 13th or 14th round flier.
Over two seasons at Tennessee in college, Kamara never h... Read More
|Marlon Mack||RB||IND||R||RB - #67|
He has what the Colts' offense lacks from the running back position - explosiveness. He scored six TDs over 40 yards in 2016. Over three years at South Florida, Mack rushed for 3609 yards on 586 carries with 32 rushing TDs. He had the most production in TDs (15) in 2016 while his best chances for success came in 2015 (1492 combined yards on 226 touches). His yard... Read More|
|DeAndre Washington||RB||OAK||24||1||RB - #62|
Over the last two years at Texas Tech, Washington rushed for 2,595 yards on 421 carries with 16 rushing TDs (14 in his senior season) while also catching 71 balls for 703 yards with another two TDs. When looking at some of his highlights, Washington looked almost irrelevant if he had no room to run. He didn't attack the line scrimmage with any sense of urgency wi... Read More|
|Charcandrick West||RB||KC||26||3||RB - #64|
|UPDATE: Ware went down so Hunt is going to get a stronger look from the coaching staff. Pass protection will be the deciding factor on whether or not he gets the majority of carries while Ware is out (rumored PCL 4-6 weeks). Andy Reid is one of the best coaches creating mismatches and getting the ball in space, so expect Hunt, West and Tyreek Hill to all be involve... Read More|
|Jamaal Williams||RB||GB||R||RB - #51|
Green Bay hopes Williams will emerge as the top option as a power runner in 2017. He had an up and down career over five seasons at BYU. As a part-time runner in his freshmen year, Jamaal had 1,090 combined yards with 13 TDs and a career-high 27 catches. His role expanded his next season (1,358 combined yards with seven TDs and 18 catches). A knee issue and a sus... Read More|
