Three Fantasy Sleepers No One Is Talking About

3. Darius Slayton

With the addition of Kenny Golladay this offseason, Darius Slayton is overlooked in the Giants’ offense, which is absolutely loaded with weapons at skill positions. They may have the best receiving core in the league, and they also sport Evan Engram, a talented tight end who has yet to reach his full potential. The team also returns Saquon Barkley from an ACL injury, and although he could be a 2021 fantasy football bust, the offense will be scary if he returns to form. That being said, Slayton may have the highest fantasy upside on the Giants roster, as he consistently made big-time plays in the Giants games I watched last season. Slayton’s only downside is that his QB, Daniel Jones, is still a question mark at this point, and whether or not he can deliver the ball accurately to Slayton this season remains up in the air.

2. Giovani Bernard

This choice may come as a surprise to some. Between Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette, Bernard’s carries may seem uncertain, but I see him as the perfect running back for Tom Brady and Tampa Bay’s offense. Bernard will be Brady’s new James White in the offense, and I expect him to catch a lot of balls out of the backfield for the Buccaneers. He is the best receiving back on the roster, so expect to see him on third downs and in the red zone.

1. John Brown

John Brown is the newest addition to the Raiders, who needed a replacement for Nelson Agholor after he left for the Patriots in free agency. Brown should be a little better than Agholor was last season, as he still has tons of speed to utilize on the outside. Together, he and Ruggs will bring back the vertical game that was the pride of classic Raiders teams, and the pair should see most of the receiver targets throughout the season. Most targets will go to Darren Waller, who is looking for an All-Pro season and could be an elite fantasy tight end this year. Look for Brown to get Agholor’s targets and perform at a high level, going for around 70 catches for 800-900 yards and eight touchdowns. In short, Brown will be a viable receiver in fantasy in 2021.
