The feel of summer has started to kick in for most of the country as the warm air has started to arrive. Oddly enough, we are already looking forward to the cool air that fills the fall months delivering us some action packed NFL football to fill our daily and season long fantasy needs.
Now since the season is still nearly three full months away we all have time to build up our fantasy draft plans for season long league as well as a game plan for the first week of action on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings.
This week will take a look at our top fantasy sleepers for the upcoming 2015 NFL season in our June report. One of the names that will make the list is Darren McFadden for the Dallas Cowboys. Despite being a prime time fantasy back a few season ago his health and lack of production has put him in the reserve spot for many fantasy owners over the past few seasons.
Here is our list of top Fantasy Sleepers for the 2015-2016 NFL season.
Darren McFadden, Dallas Cowboys: While we aren’t taking anything away from the impressive season DeMarco Murray put up in 2014. We will however say the Cowboys have one of the top NFL offensive lines that might have helped some of that production. For McFadden the ability to stay healthy will be key to his success in 2015. Look for McFadden to be a big part of the teams passing and running attack in 2015. Don’t be surprised if you see a 1,200 yard rushing performance with 650-700 receiving yards in 2015.
Justin Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars: I would put Blackmon on the deep fantasy sleeper list if you keep on. At the moment he is still suspeneded but if he gets that lifted, Blackmon has the physical tools to be a top flight wide receiver. Now that don’t take a risk on him in your draft unless you feel confident in how you draft early on and use your last pick on him. We also suggest keeping an eye on how the NFL is handling his situation. Just think he put up big seasons with quarterbacks that were below average. Now he has a solid option with Blake Bortles behind center.
Duron Carter, Indianapolis Colts: We could go with Donte Moncrief as well as a fantasy sleeper in 2015. That being said we elected to go with Carter as many fans might not have heard of him by now. Carter has played the past few seasons in the CFL league putting up solid numbers including 1,939 yards on 124 catches. The Colts are in need of another play maker now that Reggie Wayne is no longer on the team so Carter and Moncrief should have an opportunity to produce with Andrew Luck at quarterback.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Every fantasy owner will be jumping at a chance to draft Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. The question is how many fantasy owners will take a flyer on a big physical tight end that pulled in 21 targets during the 2014 NFL season as a rookie. Seferian-Jenkins should become a favorite of Winston early and often especially near the red zone as another big tall pass catching option.
Marlon Brown, Baltimore Ravens: Fantasy owners should expect one of the second tier receiving options to become a fantasy threat in 2015 now that Torrey Smith has departed. While we expect the attention to turn to Breshad Perriman but Brown might be the guy to take the chance on. Despite failing to pull in a touchdown in his sophomore season, Brown showed as a rookie he could be a red zone threat after pulling in seven touchdowns
