It’s never too early to think about the next NFL and fantasy season. For all the stars we want to draft in the early rounds, the later rounds are just as crucial for steals or depth. Let’s take an early look at each fantasy sleeper per team.
Buffalo Bills: WR Gabriel Davis (ADP 117.9)
Gabe Davis had a solid season last season where he had 48 receptions for 836 yards and seven TDs. However, people expected him to have a bigger jump, so his stock is a little low now. The positive is that he plays in a system where Josh Allen throws a lot so he will get his receptions, yards, and touchdowns. To get Gabe Davis in the 8th-10th round is a steal for your flex position.
Miami Dolphins: TE Durham Smythe (ADP 318.8)
Durham Smythe was a big winner in free agency when Mike Gesicki signed with the rival Patriots. He was then extended for two years worth close to $8M. Now the Miami offense passes a lot, so Durham will get his chances as Gesicki did last season. Expect an increase in production for Smythe.
New England Patriots: RB James Robinson (ADP 227.9)
It was a tough 2022 season for James Robinson as he recovered from an Achilles injury in 2021 and had trouble finding playing time after he was traded to the Jets. In the offseason, the Patriots picked up James Robinson to serve as a backup to Rhamondre Stevenson. New England loves running the ball so Robinson will have his touches. In case Stevenson gets hurt, Robinson is a solid backup to have.
New York Jets: TE Tyler Conklin (ADP 215.2)
One of my favorite secrets from last year’s fantasy season was TE Tyler Conlin of the Jets. He had consistent moments last season, such as his first four weeks where he averaged close to 10 FP. His best came against New England in Week 8 where he had six catches for 79 yards and two TDs for 25.90. With Aaron Rodgers coming into town and he loves throwing it to his TEs, Conklin could be a sneaky late-round pick if you need a TE.
