2021 Fantasy QB Sleepers | Sport News

Must read

Finding value in the quarterback position during the draft provides a significant advantage. It’s hard to pass players of flashy ability in the early and middle parts of the draft, but in single-QB leagues, looking for a quarterback often starves you or a leading receiver or running back. You can find good value in those positions in later rounds, but it’s easier to find a legitimate candidate to sleep in or escape at QB. Even if you prefer to draft a quarterback early, downgrading for a possible late robbery can pay off in the form of a trade once the season begins.

The perfect picture of a sleeping quarterback is Justin Herbert last year. In single QB rework leagues, he was often not drafted, only to finish as a top 10 pick at the position.

Speaking of guys who haven’t been drafted, if you’re not in a deep league, be sure to keep an eye out for some of those who sleep below during the early part of the season. At least some will be available on the waiver wire, so be prepared to jump in if they have a hot start.

This year’s roster features six players caught in quarterback battles. Everyone has a great advantage if they get away with their respective jobs.

  • People were quick to write Tua off after a lackluster rookie season, but remember he was coming off a serious hip injury he sustained during his senior year at Alabama. While his rookie season wasn’t what many expected, it did show off his ball placement and precision skills. The Dolphins came out and landed him two receivers who excel at opening deep, Jaylen Waddle and Will Fuller V. They play more to Tua’s strengths than DeVante Parker or Preston Williams. Tua already has experience hitting Waddle in stride, and they should pick up right where they left off. Mike Gesicki and Hunter Long are also more than useful options as a tight end. Simply put, Tua was not set for success in 2020. At 21 he is, and could easily surpass ADP.

  • Mayfield finished behind Cam Newton last season at QB17. It’s not that Mayfield doesn’t have guns or isn’t a promising young quarterback; it just doesn’t pick up the volume. He’s in range of Ryan Tannehill’s pass attempts; however, there is no shortage of firepower on the Browns roster, and Baker has proven capable of making big plays. 2 quarterback on “money throws” last season (pitches requiring “exceptional skill and athleticism” or “pitches made at decisive moments”). That cannot be ignored. With household names like OBJ and Jarvis Landry, the Browns offense always has the potential to explode. Behind an elite offensive line, Baker should sit comfortably in the pocket regularly. Additionally, the Browns offense will be among the league leaders in red zone attempts, resulting in some easy passing touchdowns. He’s accurate and he’s not afraid to make big shots. Any increase in passenger volume could spell a great year out of Mayfield.

  • Jones definitely has things heading in the right direction. Saquon Barkley is making a comeback and Kenny Golladay is added to the group. Whatever your take on KaDarius Toney, he will help the offense move the ball. If Danny Dimes can get the ball into the hands of his playmakers, he could have a fantasy-relevant season, especially if he’s averaging more than 30 rushing yards per game again. At his low price on drafts, he’s a low-risk, high-reward player, optimal for an endorsement if you take an early QB.

  • Winston, with his new look, has a ceiling as high as a top-10 quarterback. Assuming he wins the quarterback battle with Taysom Hill, a Sean Payton offense led by a gunman sounds good. If you limit your turnovers, you could easily see 5,000 yards with about 40 touchdowns in a 17-game season. (Although Michael Thomas’ ankle injury clouds optimism a bit.) Even in his disastrous 30 INT season with the Bucs in 2019, Winston finished QB3. Of course, Winston could easily lose the starting job and Hill could be a top-10 candidate, as he was during his early career last year, thanks to his rushed floor. Winston would be the highest ranked and highest rewarding player, but Hill would likely be more consistent if he ends up starting.

  • Lock, like Winston, is another ‘throw caution to the wind’ gunslinger, but has had no success in the past, even with solid weapons around him. He completed only 57.3 percent of his passes in 2020 and hasn’t shown much promise. But as we know, crazier things have happened in fantasy football. Does Josh Allen becoming an elite passer in 2020 sound familiar to you? Lock has nothing close to Allen’s lead, but another year on Pat Shurmer’s offense could turn the tide. Shurmer isn’t a sexy name, but he led a Vikings offense in 2017 that produced a Kirk Cousins ​​QB7 season. With the weapons around Lock, he surely has the potential to do something similar.

  • The Jimmy G era is coming to an end in San Francisco, but when? In the year the 49ers made it to the Super Bowl, Jimmy G finished at QB14. With even more guns now, his ceiling is even higher if he ends up being the 49ers’ full-time starter this year. But that’s okay. According to Fantasy Pros, Garoppolo is coming off the board at an average draft position (ADP) of QB33. We could see an Alex Smith / Patrick Mahomes situation where Lance sits for a year to be groomed as the future starter. If that’s the case, Jimmy G will absolutely trash that ADP. On the other hand, Lance has tremendous potential if he is named a starter early in the season. Its dizzying face features solid fantasy flooring. At NDSU, Lance had 48 total touchdowns, over 1,100 rushing yards and just one interception. That is not a typo. This suggests that it won’t be thrown out of the game very often. He’s coming off the board before Garoppolo, and it’s probably a smart move to select both of them if you select either, depending on your league format.

  • Fields could easily outperform his QB19 ADP. He has the tools to be a stat accumulator, and his low rank is an indication of the unknown. Rookie rookie quarterbacks have a solid base, but their success will depend on how long the Bears coaching staff pretend Andy Dalton is worth keeping there. If Fields wins the spot early in the season, he could be the best guy on this list.
