- TY Hilton

- Ryan Tannehill
- Drew Lock
- David Johnson
- Diontae Johnson
- Darius Slayton
- Brandin Cooks
- Michael Pittman
- Alexander Mattison
The guys are great sleepers with potential upside. Whenever we look at sleepers, we must address the situation around them. You have to look and see where they land on the depth chart, the talent, and of course how much volume they can potentially get. The guys stated here are in a prime position to succeed and the Counselor has hand selected them.
An overview of these sleepers:
1. TY Hilton
TY Hilton is the WR1 on his team and has a great QB throwing the ball to him in Phillip Rivers. The upside is here for TY and you can get him in the 5th round of your draft. What a steal for a guy that could finish in the top 10 amongst WR’s when and if healthy this season.
2. David Montgomery
When you are looking at David Montgomery, you have to look at talent and opportunity. There is no committee here, as he will be the workhorse there in Chicago. He will expand on his role from last year and have at least a floor of 260 attempts. I am excited about this man and the 5th round draft value. Another steal in all fantasy football drafts 2020.
3. Ryan Tannehill
This guy was solid for the entire time he was on the Titans last year. In fact if he played the first 6 games of the season with Tennessee he would have finished as a top 5 Fantasy QB. Love the safe and solid numbers I will get with Tannehill this upcoming season.
4. Drew Lock
More upside than anything here, Drew Lock has the weapons to really do some great things this season. I like the talent and opportunity with the Broncos this year. With weapons like Jeudy, and Sutton how can you not succeed no 2020?
5. David Johnson
While being outcast by the Cardinals, the Texans welcome David Johnson with open arms. He is a full and true workhorse RB that will get the volume he deserves this NFL season. 3rd to 4th round draft value, he could be the biggest steal in fantasy football history.
6. Diontae Johnson
I don’t see anyone taking the WR2 job away from the talented Diontae Johnson. Look for a major breakout season from this young stud!
7. Darius Slayton
Leading the Giants in targets last year, rapport with Daniel Jones, and an improved O-line are all signs that Slayton will have a great year in 2020.
8. Brandin Cooks
He is the WR 1 on Houston. With Hopkins no longer there, you get over 150 free up targets. Cooks will eat this year and if healthy can be the biggest steal in your draft at the wide receiver position.
9. Michael Pittman
Drafted with their first pick, the Colts really believe in Pittman. He will eat this year and possibly line up with Hilton on the outside. I love the upside of this guy in 2020.
10. Alexander Mattison
Mattison will eat this year when Cook gets hurt again. Stash him on your bench and you will be a very happy person.
