This article will concentrate on the sleepers and busts who could make or break your fantasy team this season. Isn’t it as simple as “ABC”? Actually, it’s the other way around.
It’s important to remember that every fantasy player has the potential to be a sleeper or a bust, as demonstrated by the structure of this publication’s individual fantasy scouting reports.
According to our findings, each of these businesses has a good chance of becoming either a “booming” success or a disappointing “bust.”
Starting at the bottom of each skill-position ranking, “super sleeper” types were identified with the goal of finding those who are likely to benefit from new cast members and/or changes in the game’s schematics, among other factors.
We reversed the process, starting at the top and working our way down, with the goal of identifying risky propositions due to a variety of factors, such as injury concerns or off-the-field baggage.
The following article highlights our favorite sleepers and busts at each skill position, along with the reasons for our picks.
Sam Bradford, Rams quarterback
Bradford has never had such a dynamic group of receivers capable of putting pressure on opposing defenses both vertically and horizontally.
When healthy, he has an All-Pro level blind-side protector after being sacked once every 14.3 pass attempts in his first 42 career starts.
The top pick in the 2010 draft has a defense that not only keeps the Rams in games but also takes the football away, allowing the “Greatest Show on Turf 2.0,” as some league observers refer to it, to score.
Bradford now has offensive continuity with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, which may be more important than the other changes.
Bradford will not have to spend the offseason learning a new offense, as he did in his first three seasons, but will instead be able to focus on developing a relationship with his new weapons, including TE Javon Cook and WR Tavon Austin, the eighth overall pick.
Bradford has the opportunity to achieve his goals with the assistance of his teammates.
Cutler is the starting quarterback for the Bears
Could this be Cutler’s year to reach the pinnacle of his abilities? Several factors lead us to believe that he is a mythical sleeping giant.
Cutler’s natural talents, such as his rare athleticism and elusiveness, as well as a rocket arm that can fit his passes into the tiniest of windows, never fade when he’s at his best.
He was hampered by a demoralizingly inept Bears offense led by former head coach Lovie Smith, which couldn’t even score in a brothel.
Marc Trestman brings his up-tempo, West Coast offense, as well as new weapons such as TE Martellus Bennett, who should be a force in the middle of the field, and former Saints OLT Jermon Bushrod, who should give Cutler more confidence in the pocket.
This could be Cutler’s year as a head coach, as he leads an offense that should feature more than just WR Brandon Marshall as the primary playmaker.
Cutler is in the final year of his contract and could be a step ahead of most of his peers as a quarterback.
