5 Terrific Quarterback Sleepers You Must Draft

The sleeper, like a friendly political debate, no longer exists so we’ll come up with our own definition. The 2017 Fantasy Football Quarterback Sleepers list consists of players currently being drafted outside the Top 10 at the position but who have a chance to finish much higher.

The sleeper, like a friendly political debate, no longer exists so we’ll come up with our own definition. The 2017 Fantasy Football Quarterback Sleepers list consists of players currently being drafted outside the Top 10 at the position but who have a chance to finish much higher.

First and foremost, Joe Flacco would have been on this list but the news of his recent injury is worrisome enough to exile him to the land of mediocrity. At least Flacco can boast he won most attractive NFL player last season. No, seriously, it was a thing. Look it up. I’ll wait … I know, right!?

Fantasy Football quarterback sleepers consist of players who have a significant amount of potential, much like the Buffalo Bills organization once had. Improvement in performance, an increase in opportunity, and additional talent are all variables we’re looking for.

Carson Wentz had the fifth most pass attempts last season. An increase in efficiency could result in a significant jump. Marcus Mariota was fourth in the NFL with a 5.8 touchdown percentage last season. A full 16 games played and we could be looking at a Top 5 QB in 2017. Jameis Winston finished ninth last season in yards gained per completion. Surely DeSean Jackson and O.J. Howard could keep that trending in the right direction.

Marcus Mariota, Tennesee Titans

Mariota is my personal favorite for a quarterback sleeper, break out, tier jumper or whatever it is you’d like to call someone who makes the leap into Fantasy stardom. Mariota registered multiple touchdowns in 10 of the team’s first 12 games last season. The Titans come into the season as legitimate rivals to the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns for best offensive line and now have some added weapons.

Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor join the offense and should give Mariota a boost in production. Mariota’s ADP is currently in the 10-12 range but given his upside, it’s reasonable to suggest he comes off your 2018 draft board after only Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees.
