Here is the write-up, with some key notes on these fantasy football sleepers.
1. Jared Goff
Jared Goff is as solid as they come at the QB position. He finished as a top 10 QB last year, and he get an upgrade in offensive weapons. With the additions of Jahmyr Gibbs at RB and Sam Laporta at TE, look for a major boost in production.
I consider Goff a solid backup QB with safe upside. He is a plug-and-play QB that will give you consistent and solid production each and every week. I love Goff this season, and this is an offense that I will be watching a lot.
2. Dameon Pierce
When we look at workhorse upside and value, you get Dameon Pierce. He is primed to get a ton of work for the 2023 fantasy football season, and he will eat. You can get him in rounds 4-6 in a 12-person league, and that is amazing value.
Most people will sleep on him because of the team he is on, but with the addition of Tank Dell and CJ Stroud, you could have some upside. Also, John Metchie is looking great as well. I love Dameon this upcoming season as he has that top-10 upside this season.
Make sure you roster him as part of a robust RB draft strategy.
3. Zach Charbonnet
For that value and upside, you must consider Zach Charbonnet this season. There is talk about his shoulder being messed up as of late, but no timeline on how long he will be sidelined. We still have a ton of time until the NFL season starts.
The Seahawks wanted a workhorse to add to Kenneth Walker because he has proven to be injury prone himself. I would personally rather draft Zach later in drafts, overspending a 3rd round pick on Walker, especially with injury concerns and a 50/50 split.
4. Rashee Rice
The Chiefs need a true WR 1, and they don’t have it. Kelce is there and will get his 150 target share for sure, but aside from that it’s a guessing game. Toney and Skyy Moore are not any good, and that leaves Rashee Rice and his upside.
The Kansas City Chiefs invested a 2nd round pick on rice, and they intend to use him. I like him as a late-round stash with some upside. Maybe he can fill that Tyreek Hill void that was left a few years ago. For a late-round pick, why not!?
5. Quentin Johnston
This guy is going to be the WR one. There is no question in my mind here. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are old news, and Johnston was a 1st round-draft pick and has more youth and upside.
Johnston is the real deal, and Justin Herbert is going to feed him on a consistent basis. I love the round 7-9 draft value and love the upside. I find it comical that people are drafting Keenan Allen in the third round when Johnston is the WR 1.
Draft this man on all your fantasy football rosters for 2023.
7. Calvin Ridley
Calvin Ridley is the real deal, the clear-cut WR1 on the Jags this season. He is typically coming off in rounds 3-4 in 12-person leagues.
You have to love the upside with Trevor Lawrence throwing him the ball. There is no question that Calvin will eat on a consistent basis this year, and is the most physically gifted WR on the team.
If Ridlet stays healthy, he is a top-10 WR with ease and will be unstoppable. The volume just has to go to him, and looking at the mediocre talent around him, it will!
8. Tank Bigsby
Tank has major upside this year, and like Ridley, can thrive on the Jag’s offense. He could and should take the RB1 role from the very inconsistent Travis Etienne.
Travis is one of the most inconsistent RBs in the game and had his chance to shine last season but busted really hard. I do not trust Eitenne at all, and neither should you.
Tank was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2023 NFL Draft and will eat this season. Make not questions about it!
9. Drake London
London is the real deal when it comes to talent and fantasy football draft value. There is no WR 2 on the Falcon’s offense and the path to a ton of volume and production in there is 100%
The Addition of Bijan will open things up for Drake London even more. The only obvious question mark here is the rapport and the talent of Demond Ridder. I think they connect often and consistently.
10. Javonte Williams
Not my favorite pick here when it comes to running backs, but the draft value is there. You always have to question RBs coming off serious knee injuries, but we know Sean Payton will want to run the ball, and Williams will eat.
Williams only has to compete with Samaje Perine, and that should be too hard. I don’t personally have some stock in Javonte this year, but no doubt he is a sleeper this season.
