Fantasy Football Season Long Value Players
In honor of finishing up my main league’s fantasy draft, and my increasing amount of boredom, I felt it time to publish an early list of players for fantasy football. Call them players I “like” this season. Or you call call them sleepers (some of them). I prefer calling the value players, much like the value plays in my usual fantasy articles for daily players.

DK is rumored to eventually bring along DraftStreets dynamic pricing, at least to an extent…but for now I will be mostly researching DraftKings with a little DraftDay and/or FanDuel thrown in when a great deal is there.
