Draft Kit: 2023 IDP Sleepers
Which IDPs are being slept on but have the potential to outperform their ADP?
Unlike a breakout, a sleeper is someone who’s already shown the ability to produce for IDP. It’s less of a projection (although there is some of that sprinkled throughout this list). These are players who, for one reason or another, are being slept on in drafts. And while we don’t see them as having as high of a ceiling as a breakout, they’re a safer bet because they’re either dirt cheap (see: Nick Cross) or we’ve seen them produce already in small doses (see: Derrick Brown).
Some of these players are older and have been replaced by the “new hotness.” Some are on new teams or have been given new opportunities. Some were injured last season and have been forgotten as a result. Whatever the reasoning, they’re going late in drafts and have the potential to return sizable value to savvy managers.
