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 players and identify players that should significantly outperform their late draft position. These players should be your targets after the 12th round of your draft.

Ryan Tannehill, Miami
Chris Feery: When you have a quarterback with legitimate QB1 production potential that’s going off the board as a late QB2, you have yourself a great value opportunity. That’s what we have with Tannehill, who could easily take a leap forward in his second year with Adam Gase at the helm of the club. Many were expecting a massive leap from Tannehill last year, but that didn’t pan out as he lost three games to injury. We’ll look for a leap to happen in year two, and view Tannehill as a potential steal at his current average draft position.
