List Rules Vote up players who could be surprise fantasy basketball stars.

The best fantasy basketball sleepers can be the picks in any draft that could make or break your season. Everyone wants to take a superstar in the first round with names like LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Stephen Curry all getting selected quickly. But the style of the NBA allows many players to put up impressive stats on the same team, which is huge for fantasy. 

So take a look at all the fantasy basketball sleepers who are flying under the radar in many drafts, whether you're playing daily fantasy or season long. These players may not be contending for an All-Star spot, but they will likely have great numbers to provide huge value for the draft spot they’re getting picked at. 

Vote up for the top players you think are being overlooked when it comes to fantasy basketball and the players you think will put up stats no one is predicting. Vote below to help decide which talented players are the best of all the NBA fantasy sleepers heading into the 2019-2020 season!
