If your draft is coming up this weekend or even if you already had your draft and you’re trying to tweak your roster a bit, sleepers that emerge late in camp can sometimes represent great value since many publications may not have the latest on their situation.

Week 3 of the preseason is behind us, so the last chance to see most starters is past and just the final roster decisions remain. For the most part, we have all the data we need going into week 1 of the real season.
