Here are the TOP 20 Fantasy Football PPR Sleepers for 2017: RB
To be considered a sleeper, obviously you have to think about the ADP of the players and how that is currently going as not a high draft pick, so I will exclude anyone with an ADP showing them drafted in the first 2 round according to Fantasy Football Calculator.
In any general 12 team draft and what might be expected on the high ceiling end from these players. Here is a pic of the ADP list, which just does not include the top 3 that could not fit on page, which was of course, David Johnson, Zeke, and L. Bell NOTE: These sleeper listings were updated as of 8/1/17 and you may want to go ahead and get updated sleepers daily in any sport @‼️

Top 20 RB PPR Sleepers for 2017
- Joe Mixon ** Mixon has great potential, the only real reason he is not considered as not a sleeper, but an expected stud already along with the #1 threat among rookies, Leonard Fournette is that he is expected to share backfield duties along with 2 other talented veterans.
- Isaiah Crowell ** Crowell has the break away speed to recognize open holes in his offense, and make large gain. Add on top of that the potential to also carry the load as a workhorse AND the receiving back, as he did last year, this really adds to his PPR sleeper status.
- Christian McCaffrey ** McCaffrey will be playing games with OC’s this year. It will be fun to watch. So look out for the option, along with receiving yards beyond what any other panthers back will have.
- Ty Montgomery ** The WR/RB can create his own space in helping offense in whatever way he can. It seems he will start the season as the #1 back in a offense that will not bring his stats down.
- Carlos Hyde ** Hyde has the ability to be THE every down back. Only problem is the injuries. But also at this time, he is fighting what seems like competition, so his starting spot is not guaranteed.
- Dalvin Cook ** Cook obviously has the game tape and film to be among the top 3 RB’s out of this year’s draft. But once again, with crowded backfield, there are a lot of mouths to feed. How much will Cook get? I would expect if he stays healthy, he can at easily at least get 15 touches per game or more if his run blocking catches up to the pro game.
- Adrian Peterson ** Peterson has the home run ability we all know about to take it to the house. Need I say any more. He is going a bit high though.
- Mark Ingram ** Here’s where it gets tricky and rightly so, since the sharing of backfield time is going to be in full philosophical effect in N.O.
- Danny Woodheaed ** With Woodhead and West permanently taking over, Woodhead gives you the best chance on this team for a consistent #2 RB.
- LaGarrette Blount ** Blount has the ability to be the bull dozier that the Eagles seem to be looking for. Sick and tired of Eagle RB’s? Blount is Best
- Bilal Powell ** While this isn’t really high on this list compared to his expected ADP, nor his expectations as a starting RB, I don’t have a good gut feeling about him taking over for Mat Forte yet.
- A Patriots RB ** Not an easy solution but let’s say one of the 3 guys here gets hurt? Ok, down to 2. Gillislee is the favorite, but who knows from week to week.. The guy who had the most Receiving targets was J. White
- Kareem Hunt **This is where we boil it down to those Rec. or targeted RB, as this is whats left to really consider sleepy.
- Darren Sproles ** You should still be able to depend on his Receiving skills
- Duke Johnson Jr. ** Still showing flashes of ability as a receiver.
- Charles Sims ** Sims is the better guy taking over for D. Martin
- Shane Vereen ** An unsure backfield has a sure 3rd down back.
- CJ Prosis ** Seahawks need backup with skillset like this to be healthy.
- Chris Thompson ** While not every down, the backfield is unsure
- TJ Yeldon ** His targets were kind of high last year, and can be used.
