Deep Sleepers: Running Backs

The Footballguys staff digs deep for sleepers at running back

A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. This article specifically targets deep sleeper value (players that can be found very late in a fantasy draft). In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look deeper than the Top 150 and identify players that should significantly outperform their late draft position. These players should be your targets after the 12th round of your draft.

Joe Williams, San Francisco

Stephen Holloway: Williams is an excellent athlete displayed by a 4.41 40-yard dash, one of the faster running back times at this year’s NFL Combine. In his final season at Utah, he rushed for 1,407 yards and 10 TDs in only nine games. A question mark on his desire is the fact that he retired early in 2016 from playing college football and only returned after Utah’s running backs suffered several injuries. He is only behind oft-injured Carlos Hyde, who returns from a torn MCL at the end of last season and 31-year old Tim Hightower, a veteran who jump started his career in New Orleans after missing three consecutive seasons.
