Cameron Meredith (WR, NO) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~150 ANALYSIS: New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith is a sleeper based on what the 2018 Bears would have looked like with him still on the roster. The best version of Meredith, for fantasy purposes, still wouldcontinue reading...

Allen Hurns (WR, DAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~125 CURRENT ADP: ~135 ANALYSIS: Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Allen Hurns moved from the Jaguars to the Cowboys this offseason and his fantasy stock may never be higher. The speedster is very talented, and really has the chance to break out, but hiscontinue reading...

Corey Clement (RB, PHI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~125 CURRENT ADP: ~140 ANALYSIS: Owners continue to invest in Jay Ajayi and, for the life of us, we will never understand why. Do we continue to chase perceived value from his 2016 season, where 49% of his yards game in three games? Ajayi hascontinue reading...

Kenny Stills (WR, MIA) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~125 CURRENT ADP: ~135 ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills is surprisingly still a sleeper, even though he has been a solid player in the past. His current ADP in dynasty leagues still stands 154.2. Stills is being drafted as a WR5continue reading...

Trey Burton (TE, CHI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~90 CURRENT ADP: ~100 ANALYSIS: After spending years trapped behind Zach Ertz in Philly, Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton is free to spread his wings in Chicago. He projects to have a substantial increase in target volume as a starter versuscontinue reading...

C.J. Anderson (RB, CAR) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~105 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: Looking at veterans, you need to look at the opportunity to get the value needed to make them worthwhile as a draft target. A player who fits this mold is C.J. Anderson in Carolina. While continue reading...

Javorius Allen (RB, BAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~210 CURRENT ADP: ~220 ANALYSIS: Baltimore Ravens running back Javorius Allen is highly underrated coming into 2018. In fact, Allen was 2017’s PPR RB23 and is going in the 19th round on average. We really have no idea why Allen is not beingcontinue reading...

Spencer Ware (RB, KC) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~225 CURRENT ADP: ~230 ANALYSIS:  There is a lot of risk with Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware. Coming off a devastating knee injury, and now behind second year runner Kareem Hunt, Ware may never be the same. However, thiscontinue reading...

T.J. Yeldon (RB, JAC) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~190 CURRENT ADP: ~200 ANALYSIS: When the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted running back Leonard Fournette with the number four overall pick of the 2017 draft, T.J. Yeldon became a forgotten man. However. with the departure of Chris Ivory, he nowcontinue reading...

Kalen Ballage (RB, MIA) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~200 CURRENT ADP: ~210 ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage joins a Miami backfield that should be led by Kenyan Drake with Frank Gore also mixing in. Ballage will likely offer little in the run game, but where he cancontinue reading...

Matt Breida (RB, SF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~155 CURRENT ADP: ~165 ANALYSIS:  When Jerick McKinnon signed a four-year, 30 million dollar contract with the 49ers, the fantasy world lost their minds. This is for good reason, McKinnon is the perfect back for a Kyle Shanahan offense that continually produces high-end RB1s incontinue reading...

Nyheim Hines (RB, IND) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~115 CURRENT ADP: ~125 ANALYSIS: Many are calling Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines this year’s Alvin Kamara, but that seems like a stretch. Still, Hines is the prototypical change of pace back for the NFL and could see acontinue reading...

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~130 ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard never gets any love on draft day; why? In 2017, in games only he and Mixon played (no Jeremy Hill), he averaged 11.33 fantasy points per game, which puts him atcontinue reading...

Chris Carson (RB, SEA) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~155 CURRENT ADP: ~165 ANALYSIS: First of all, Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson will not be the starter over Rashaad Penny; do not buy Carson thinking that he will be starting. The Seahawks invested high draft capital into Penny, andcontinue reading...

Corey Clement (RB, PHI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~130 ANALYSIS: Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement is probably best known for his Super Bowl touchdown catch that helped the Eagles to their first championship, but what was lost in his rookie season was how good he was oncontinue reading...

Rex Burkhead (RB, NE) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~85 CURRENT ADP: ~90 ANALYSIS: New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead is the prototypical ZeroRB target. He has standalone value even if we assume that Sony Michel likely takes the starting role, and has tremendous upside should something happen to Michel. Lastcontinue reading...

Marlon Mack (RB, IND) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~90 CURRENT ADP: ~100 ANALYSIS:  With Frank Gore headed to Miami, and Robert Turbin suspended, Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack inherited the starter role in Indianapolis. The Colts did not address running back highly in the draft either, taking continue reading...

Kerryon Johnson (RB, DET) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~60 CURRENT ADP: ~70 ANALYSIS: When the Detroit Lions selected running back Kerryon Johnson with the 11th pick in the second round, most everyone was surprised. Johnson was the sixth running back selected in the draft, and went ahead of more highly toutedcontinue reading...

Marshawn Lynch (RB, OAK) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~85 CURRENT ADP: ~90 ANALYSIS: Oakland Raiders running Marshawn Lynch should be in a battle for playing time in 2018. However, do not let the training camp reports of new head coach Jon Gruden wanting to feature Doug Martin scare you offcontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170 CURRENT ADP: ~185 ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki may be just the rookie tight end to hype, something that is very rare in fantasy football. Even Rob Gronkowski was not a TE1 during his rookie season and it tookcontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~175 ANALYSIS: Currently not even being considered in more shallow leagues, Andy Dalton still has a number of years left with the Bengals while quarterbacks like Eli Manning are still being drafted, Dalton is not. With A.J.continue reading...

Isaiah Crowell (RB, NYJ) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: The reason last season’s performance was such a let-down for New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell owners is due to the promise that he showed the previous season.

Sterling Shepard (WR, NYG) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: The brief Brandon Marshall experiment is over in NY, which will allow New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard to again claim the Giants’ number two receiver spot behind Beckham outright, much like he did in hiscontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: It’s always tough to deal with legal situations in fantasy football, especially since the NFL has proven to be inconsistent with its punitive measures regarding domestic violence situations in the past.

Terrelle Pryor (WR, NYJ) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~220 CURRENT ADP: ~230 ANALYSIS: New York Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor fell flat on his face during his only season in Washington.

Cole Beasley (WR, DAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~250 CURRENT ADP: ~260 ANALYSIS: Slot receivers genuinely do not come more prototypical than Cole Beasley. The 5'8" veteran ran a whopping 87 percent of his routes out of the slot last year and garnered the positions 18th-most slot targets. Beasley didn'tcontinue reading...

Randall Cobb (WR, GB) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~85 CURRENT ADP: ~90 ANALYSIS: Just like every other Green Bay WR that was not Davante Adams, Randall Cobb's season was essentially lost once Aaron Rodgers went down. Cobb averaged over 5.5 receptions and eight targets percontinue reading...

Larry Fitzgerald (WR, ARI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~30 CURRENT ADP: ~35 ANALYSIS: Yes, this is probably the last season of his Hall of Fame career and yes, he is 35 years old. However, he also has the best hands of anyone in the league since Jerry Rice. He also has had over 100continue reading...

Julian Edelman (WR, NE) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~60 CURRENT ADP: ~70 ANALYSIS: In terms of raw targets, only one team managed to throw towards the slot more times than Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. While Julian Edelman lost his season before it began to a torn ACL,continue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~145 CURRENT ADP: ~155 ANALYSIS: Do you like Saquon Barkley? What about Odell Beckham Jr.? Evan Engram? All of those players are being drafted at sixth or higher at their positions, yet Manning is currently the 21st quarterback off thecontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~25 CURRENT ADP: ~35 ANALYSIS: Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry seemed to be in line for a massive workload in a run-heavy offense with no competition for touches in sight. That all changed when Dion Lewis got PAID. The addition of Lewis doescontinue reading...
