Three Sleepers to Target in Dynasty

Kendrick Bourne is a prime sleeper in dynasty

1. Kendrick Bourne (WR, New England Patriots)

Bourne’s name has been getting a lot more attention in the fantasy landscape over the last few weeks, but it’s still very possible to acquire him in dynasty given his general lack of production in recent years. Over the last three weeks, Bourne has impressively hauled in 13 of his 14 targets, and he’s flashed big-play ability in that time span as well, grabbing three touchdowns and posting two games with over 60 yards receiving.

It feels like Bourne has been in the league for forever at this point, but at just 26 years old, he’s still relatively young by dynasty standards, and Mac Jones’s stabilizing effect on New England’s offense has helped him gain consistency. The trust between Jones and Bourne should only grow in future years, and Bourne will only be aided by the likely exit of Nelson Agholor after the 2022 season when Bourne will still have a year left on his contract. 2023 is still far in the future, but that year will be an opportunity for Bourne to improve what will still be solid production with big upside through this year and next. He should be a priority trade target for dynasty managers, either as a specific target or an addition to an existing deal.

2. Dyami Brown (WR, Washington Football Team)

Brown is still rostered in most dynasty leagues, but he seems to be a forgotten man at this point after a disappointing 2021 in which he’s barely seen the ball. The third-round rookie out of North Carolina has rarely flashed so far this year, but his ability as a vertical threat blew away Washington’s scouts during the draft process, and Brown drew comparisons to teammate WR Terry McLaurin with his ability to run crisp routes and make tough catches. Brown is likely a very cheap trade target at this point, and he’s definitely worth a third-round rookie pick on his own. His low perceived value also probably makes him a cheap throw-in option to an existing deal, and his athletic upside makes him well worth a small investment.

3. Laquon Treadwell (WR, Jacksonville Jaguars)

There’s really no point in trading for Treadwell with anything more than (maybe) a fourth-round rookie pick, but thankfully, he’s available in 93% of dynasty leagues on Sleeper, and he’s someone who is certainly worth a roster or taxi squad spot due to the upside he’s flashed in his last couple of games. To put it simply, Treadwell has been a bust since being drafted #23 overall by the Vikings in 2016, but he’s shown a rapport with Trevor Lawrence over the past couple of weeks, catching eight of 13 targets for 115 yards in that span.

At 6’2″, 215 pounds, Treadwell is a big body who excels against press coverage and in tight coverage, traits that are especially useful when attempting to be a reliable target for a rookie QB. It’s more than likely that Treadwell doesn’t do much in Jacksonville with DJ Chark and Jamal Agnew returning from injuries next year, but Treadwell will hit the free agency market after this year, so there’s a small chance he gets a moderate role for a WR-needy team. This chance certainly isn’t high by any means, but his wide availability in dynasty leagues means that it can’t hurt to pick him up and stash him on your bench.
