Late Round Sleepers For Fantasy Football

Our friend over at fanduel, Matt Selik with some late draft tips.

Quarterback – Joe Flacco

It is easy to be down on Joe Flacco after his 2013 season, but there is some potential there for him to be nice late round addition in 2014. People in fantasy football have never been particularly high on him, but he could be a quality backup that will cost next is nothing since he can be taken so late. With a bunch of new faces in Baltimore, this could be a chance for him to rebound nicely.

Running back – Carlos Hyde

Frank Gore is the starter in San Francisco, but there is a reason why the 49ers used a high draft pick to go after the former Ohio State standout. Hyde is an explosive runner, and he will be used as a rookie to make sure that the workload for Gore is manageable. Since he is on the north side of 30 years old, it is only a matter of time before Hyde gets a chance to shine. San Francisco wants to make sure that Gore is healthy enough to contribute down the stretch and in the playoffs, so limiting his touches is the best way to go. This is great news for Hyde.

Wide Receiver – Justin Hunter

With Kenny Britt gone, Justin Hunter has filled in nicely in Tennessee for the Titans. Grabbing Hunter now is the best way to go, especially since he continues to get better and better in the preseason. He is someone who will be able to use his size to create matchup problems for other teams all season long. He and Kendall Wright will be able to form a pretty nice receiving duo for Jake Locker.
