Now obviously I can’t predict the future, but these are just the top 15 guys I think are worth taking a chance on in fantasy football this year. They could very well end up surprising you.

DGB was an obvious pick for one of the top sleepers in the league. With his size and mobility, Green-Beckham has the potential to put up monster numbers in both fantasy and for the Titans. What’s holding him back is merely the lack of spark in the Titans offense.

DeVante Parker and Duke Johnson were my second and third choices. Every guy in my top three are heading into their second year in the NFL, which is why they’re such good picks for fantasy football sleepers.

Second year players tend to slump a little (if they had a good rookie year, at least) or they have the potential to really kick it into high gear. All three of these guys are players I see breaking out in a big way.

The rest of the players on here range from rookies to second year guys to long-time veterans.

As for the Kansas City Chiefs and who their best bet to be a sleeper, I went with Charcandrick West. A case could be made for Albert Wilson or any of the other receivers competing for that number two spot, but until the battle has been won, those aren’t receivers I’d take a risk on.

West is a good option because Charles has been injury prone in the past and could miss some time. West showed he’s a great fill-in and did wonders for fantasy football teams last year after Charles went down for the season.

What do you think of this list, fantasy football fans? Did I leave anyone notable off?
