Dynasty Fantasy Football: 10 Post-Hype Super Sleepers

mikewilliams “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” George W. Bush “Like ever.” Taylor Swift   Last year, Alshon Jeffery, Josh Gordon, and Keenan Allen exploded onto the scene and outpaced the projections of even their most fervent advocates. As a result, you can expect the trendy first and second year players to carry ridiculous price tags in redraft leagues and cost an absolute fortune to acquire in dynasty. But not all asymmetrical bets are placed on up-and-comers. Post-hype players can represent similarly gigantic profits, as anyone who wagered on Knowshon Moreno can tell you. And unlike their unproven brethren whose potential exploits are unlimited and whose performances are not yet tinged with disappointment, post-hype players carry bargain bin price tags. In the following scenarios, I’m willing to get fooled at least one more time. Most of the players on this list are an attempt to find the rare WR1 for WR5 prices. For my RB-heavy sleeper list, check out 10 guys who are a perfect fit for the Zero RB strategy.
