The Best Sleepers Who Will Surprise Fantasy Owners In 2019

List RulesVote up the NFL players whose fantasy performance will be most surprising

The fantasy football sleepers entering the 2019 NFL season could lead to huge success for your team if you select them in just the right late-round position. Some of the high-level talents in recent memory always go early in the draft, and it doesn’t take much to know you’ll get production from players like quarterback Aaron Rodgers, running back Saquon Barkley, and wide receiver Julio Jones. 

There are quite a few potential NFL fantasy breakouts that will not be as obvious of a choice when landing them. The players involved here typically are the ones to make or break a season. Some of the interesting names ready to make a big jump this season include a second-year quarterback like Baker Mayfield or sleeper WRs like Kenyan Drake and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, all picks who can be taken deep in drafts and be successful.

But which of these players is the absolute top fantasy sleeper? Which of these players is going to shock the fantasy world with a breakout season? Vote up for your choice for the best under-the-radar talent at his position.
