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.

Tyrell Williams, LA Chargers
Sigmund Bloom: Williams falling to the late rounds of drafts one year after putting up solid WR2 numbers despite being a second-year UDFA and playing through a shoulder injury in the last third of the season is difficult to decipher. Yes, Keenan Allen will be back, Travis Benjamin is healthy, and the team drafted Mike Williams #7 overall, but Tyrell Williams will likely grow in his game in his third year. Even a healthy drop in targets would allow Williams to stay fantasy relevant as a high weekly ceiling option in a good pass offense. A receiver who hit 1000 yards in his second season after coming out of obscurity is an excellent investment late in your drafts.
