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.
|DeShone Kizer||QB||CLE||21||R||QB - #31|
|Over two seasons at Notre Dame, Kizer threw for 5805 yards with 47 TDs and 19 Ints. His completion rate (60.7) didn't offer an edge, and he had regression in his junior season (58.7).

|Carson Wentz||QB||PHI||24||1||QB - #18|
|He's looking very sharp this pre-season! Other than short TD production (16), Wentz handled himself well in his rookie season. He passed for 3,782 yards with a 62.4 percent completion rate. He took 33 sacks while tossing 14 picks. His game looked intriguing in Week 1 (278/2) and Week 3 (301/2), but defenses started to catch up to him leading to 10 games with one pa... Read More|
