9 Late-Round Sleepers For 2017 Fantasy Baseball Drafts

  • David Gonos


Over the past few weeks, I’ve taken part in several Fantasy Baseball drafts, a few of which have been involved with other Fantasy writers, like Ray Flowers, Tim Heaney, Greg Ambrosius and Derek Van Riper. These guys represent sites like FantasyAlarm.com, Rotowire.com and dozens of others.

Of course, for all of these drafts, I’ve had a list of good late-round sleepers I’ve targeted as the drafts wind down. These types of players often make the biggest difference in the standings by the end of the season, so they’re often more important than their early round counterparts.

What’s interesting is that after these 2017 Fantasy Baseball drafts, I often discover some late-round sleepers that other writers love. So my intent in this article to expose you to some of my favorites, as well as some of their favorites!
