Ask the Expert Question: What is one late-round, lightly regarded player you hope to draft onto every fantasy team? And say why.

What is one late-round, lightly regarded player you hope to draft onto every fantasy team? And say why.

I will give you three (one at each position). RB Javorius Allen BAL, WR Marquise Goodwin SF and free agent TE Gary Barnidge. All are going undrafted in many 12-team 20 round leagues. You can get them in the late rounds easy (18th -20th). Allen has been arguably the best RB in Baltimore. I know T. West and Danny Woodhead have the top roles locked, but we are talking sleepers right. Draft him and hope for the home run. Goodwin has the speed to take the top off of defenses. SF may surprise some people this year with their style of offense under Hoyer. Goodwin is going to be streaky but good on the weeks you hit with him. Finally Barnidge is a stash and pray possible top-10 TE depending on where he lands. Draft him and wait it out for the first five weeks to see if and where he goes. Now I have just given up all my deep sleepers before the Labor day drafts!!!!
