Fantasy Redraft Sleepers: AFC West

Written by: Austin Thomas

We're just weeks out before the first game of the season. Some drafts have started and others will be finishing up over Labor Day weekend. Regardless of when your draft is, it's never a bad idea to get insight on some sleepers for the later part of your drafts. Just like the rest of the the sleeper articles, all the ADP's go by FTN Fantasy's average draft position chart. Make sure you get these guys on your draft sheet before drafting.

Denver Broncos

Greg Dulcich (ADP 128.0; TE15)

The Denver Broncos would like to forget about the 2022 season and begin the Sean Payton-era. Although, as bad as last season was for the Broncos, there were a couple bright spots and one of them was tight end Greg Dulcich. Even Sean Payton has been impressed with Dulcich and labeled him as his famous "joker" role. Payton's "joker" has seen plenty of work within his offense's over the years and Dulcich is going to be the next. Of all the tight ends going outside the top-12, Dulcich has the best upside to stampede his into the TE1 rankings.

Kansas City Chiefs

Skyy Moore (ADP 134.8; WR55)

We all know Travis Kelce is the number one "wide receiver" for the Kansas City Chiefs, but the second option is still up for grabs. Of all the actual wide receivers, none of them stand head and shoulders above the rest and each possesses their own unique traits to be utilized by the team. Skyy Moore is the best separator of them all and I think he's going to take control this season earning his spot as the WR1 option. Being linked to Patrick Mahomes is certainly a good thing and one of these receivers has to step up next to Travis Kelce. So, why can't it be Skyy Moore in his sophomore season.

Las Vegas Raiders

Jakobi Meyers (ADP 133.7; WR54)

The Las Vegas Raiders are going through some offensive changes. Derek Carr was replaced by Jimmy Garoppolo. Darren Waller is now a New York Giant and replaced by rookie Michael Mayer. Josh Jacobs is holding out after not getting a contract extension and Mack Hollins went to Atlanta. It's going to be transition for this team this season adjusting to all these new faces. Add Jakobi Meyers to that list. The former New England Patriots receiver reunites with Josh McDaniels and is being overlooked in this Raiders offense. Davante Adams is the unquestioned top target, but after him it's a thin position group. Meyers already knows the offense and will start producing right away. Don't be surprised if he ends the season with over 100 receptions and the second targeted player on the team.

Los Angeles Chargers

Isaiah Spiller (ADP 296.0; RB83)

Isaiah Spiller was one of the more popular rookie running backs a season ago in drafts greatly disappointed. It didn't help he missed much of training camp battling an injury and lost out on very important chemistry building reps and reps in general. This offseason has been different. Spiller's been battling for the RB2 role for the Chargers and that's important piece to have on what will be one of the best offenses in the league! The Chargers have been looking for a running back to compliment Austin Ekeler since the departure of Melvin Gordon after the 2019 season. If given enough touches, Spiller could sneak into weekly flex conversation and if anything were to happen to Ekeler, Spiller's value will skyrocket. This selection may be for deeper leagues, but it's something to monitor during the preseason to see who ends up as the RB2 for the Chargers.

One more sleeper article left to go. It's been a fun journey exploring these players with you all and looking forward to the season. Just remember one thing during your drafts, grabbing value is key to fantasy success. The more players you select beating their ADP, the better your team will perform. Good luck to all.
