I'm bored today so I'm coming up with a list for my personal sleepers at each position. I'd really like to see whom everyone else has as their own sleepers (preferably by position, as well). I think this could spur some good debate. I'm leaving off kickers and defenses, but if you want to add those on your own, feel free. Here's my list:
QB - Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh: He'll be overlooked by a lot of owners because he's getting long in the tooth, is coming off of a major injury, does not have Antonio Brown any longer, and because WR JuJu Smith-Schuster under performed last season. I think a big reason why JuJu had a down year was because "Big Ben" was sidelined. If the two of them can remain healthy, I see no reason why they won't light up a few scoreboards next season. Roethlisberger should be a top candidate for Comeback POY if he performs up to his usual standards. I don't know if I want him for an every week starter, but if you choose him as your bye week, QB2 I think you could do a lot worse.
RB - Kerryon Johnson, Detroit: Much has been made about Johnson possibly being demoted or even shown the door since the Lions drafted D'Andre Swift. And maybe it's a bit of my own personal bias, but I've just got a hunch that KJ is not going to surrender his RB1 role with the Lions without putting up one hell of a fight. It's not as if Johnson has to win the hearts of a new coaching staff, because the current staff is still the one that drafted him, so I think they're going to give him every opportunity to hold on to the starting gig. His biggest battle will be the one he has with staying healthy, and with being able to propel himself downfield through traffic without giving up so easily. If he can do that, Johnson is going to hold off Swift for at least this season.
WR - Brandin Cooks, Houston: Despite being a 1st round pick by the Saints in 2014, Cooks has at least somewhat failed to live up to his potential regardless of where he ended up. After fighting for touches in the pass heavy Rams offense the past two seasons, Cooks now finds himself in a WR1 role once again, although he'll be replacing a fan favorite/legend in departed DeAndre Hopkins. Those will no doubt be big shoes to fill. But with a energetic QB like DeShaun Foster throwing him the ball, I've got a hunch that Cooks will rediscover the success he had for two years as the true WR1 with the Saints. His biggest competition will no doubt come from WR2 Will Fuller.
TE - Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh: After being drafted by the Lions in 2014, Ebron spent his rookie season as their TE3, where he saw limited action. He was elevated to the TE2 role the following season, then finally was anointed as the TE1 going from 2016 to 2018. He was released following the firing of head coach Jim Caldwell. He signed a FA contract for two years with the Colts, and shared TE1 duties with Jack Doyle while in Indy. After the 2019 season, Ebron signed another two year FA deal with the Steelers, where he'll battle with Vance McDonald for the TE1 gig. My feeling is that he'll beat out McDonald, and knowing how Roethlisberger and the Steelers like to utilize their tight ends in their offense, I'm expecting Ebron to be one of the better fantasy sleepers in 2020, regardless of position.
