Running backs remain the most important players in a fantasy football lineup. Targeting fantasy football late-round RB sleepers is an excellent strategy for attacking that all-important depth.

Along with identifying 2022’s deep sleepers and fantasy football breakouts, loading up on late-round RB sleepers can make all the difference between drafting a contender and a championship-winning roster.

Using FFWC high-stakes ADP, here are the late-round RB sleepers to draft in 2022.

 

Rhamondre Stevenson (New England Patriots) ADP 94 (RB36) – Subscribing to the caveat of never trusting Bill Belichick, Rhamondre Stevenson has been one of the camp standouts. The sophomore running back has been taking first-team reps and has stood out as a receiver. Meanwhile, James White has no timetable for a return, freeing up those valuable targets for Stevenson. NBC’s Peter King thinks Stevenson will wrestle away RB1 duties from Damien Harris by mid-season. Harris is in the final year of his rookie deal and Belichick isn’t one to pay lucrative extensions when he has a cheaper replacement in-house. In the seven games last season that Stevenson got double-digit carries, he averaged 12.3 PPR points per game. Stevenson’s ADP is already on the rise but he’s still a solid value in the 9th round.

August has finally arrived and that means it’s fantasy football draft time. One of the most important strategies for success is to target those fantasy football late-round WR sleepers. Along with identifying 2022’s deep sleepers and fantasy football breakouts, loading up on late-round WR sleepers can make all the difference between drafting a contender and a championship-winning roster. Using FFWC high-stakes ADP, here are the late-round WR sleepers to draft in 2022.

WR Skyy Moore (Kansas City Chiefs) ADP 91.2 (WR48) – The only concern for Moore coming out of Western Michigan was the level of competition. Moore was PFF’s No. 4-graded wideout in 2021 and led all receivers in missed tackles forced. So far, we’ve seen that transition over nicely into the pros. The second-round rookie has been turning heads and meshing well with QB Patrick Mahomes.

With Tyreek Hill now in Miami, the door is open for Moore to earn a substantial role right away in Kansas City. Indications are he may be doing just that. Moore’s inside/outside flexibility and run-after-catch ability make him an intriguing fantasy prospect in the 9th or 10th round.

Jalen Tolbert (Dallas Cowboys) ADP 108.3 (WR52) – Another Day Two rookie pass-catcher, Tolbert should have a clear path to a starting role right away in a Dallas offense that finished No. 1 in 2021. Michael Gallup has already stated he will not be ready when the season opens. Now, Tolbert’s main competition, James Washington, was just carted off the field with an apparent ankle/foot injury.

QB Dak Prescott supported a pair of top-27 PPR wide receivers last season, CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper. Now that Cooper resides in Cleveland, the door is open for Tolbert to command 80-plus targets in Year One. That makes him very undervalued at his current draft position.

D.J. Chark (Detroit Lions) ADP 130.4 (WR62) – Chark missed most of last season with an ankle injury. The good news there is…

Editor’s Introduction: Mark Morales Smith has an eye for talent. He identified Antonio Gibson with Jamaal Charles ability when literally nobody was talking about him in early 2020. He’s a draft scout in his spare time and he sat down to talk about some deep sleepers in your fantasy drafts. 

There is no set definition for what a ‘sleeper’ is but when you see one, you know it. As a general rule, a sleeper is defined as a late-round or unheralded player that outperforms their ADP. Training camps and preseason might not have started but fantasy football draft fervor certainly has. And with it, there is plenty of interest in finding out the 2022 fantasy football deep sleepers to target.

Here are some of those players currently being targeted in double-digit rounds who look like solid deep sleepers to prioritize in the latter rounds.

Tua Tagovailoa (QB) Miami Dolphins

With Tua, we are still trying to figure out if he’s the issue in Miami or if subpar weapons and the worst offensive line in football are the issues. Many advanced stats seem to point to the latter with the offensive line being the biggest culprit , Tua has been an above-average quarterback in the rare instance he’s had a clean pocket to throw from. His lack of deep attempts can also be equated to the terrible line and a system that forces him to throw quick passes to negate the onslaught of pressure. 

This offseason the Dolphins have addressed these issues by adding an elite wideout in Tyreek Hill and one of the best tackles in the game in Terron Armstead among other offensive line additions. We know Hill is going to be elite, however, we still have to see the offensive line gel. But on paper, they should be much improved. 

The combination of Hill and Jaylen Waddle should be deadly for an accurate quarterback like Tua. In a Mike McDaniel system, they should get the ball in space often and do most of the heavy lifting for Tua. Many people seem to ignore that Hill, even with Mahomes, received the bulk of his yards last season from screens, crosses, and dump-offs. Even moreso than his new teammate Jaylen Waddle. I would go as far as to say that I anticipate Cedrick Wilson and Mike Gesicki to average more air yards this season and be utilized as the primary deep threats. Wilson on the outside and Gesicki down the seam. 

If McDaniel is what we believe he will be coming from San Francisco, the offensive system should be much improved. That alone should improve the offensive line and rushing attack. Which in turn should make Tua’s life much easier and open things up for him. We will see this year who he really is and my bet is he’s a better player than we’ve seen so far in Miami.
