5. Fantasy Sleepers Of The Year
Andre Williams and the Giants’ defense will be the fantasy sleepers of the 2015 season. Each of these two choices will be optimal fantasy options in their own respective way.
Williams showed flashes of brilliance last season. He is the typical power running back that Tom Coughlin loves oh so very much. With Rashad Jennings being very injury prone, Williams will get multiple chances to jump up and snag the starting job. Drafting Williams in the lower rounds would be a total steal for any fantasy team.
While this prediction is extremely bold, the Giants’ defense is a lot more underrated than people think. Their secondary definitely needs some work, but they seem to have fixed their pass rush issue. They recently signed some key rotational players that will make them have constant pressure on the quarterback. New York City is soon going to be referred to as “sack city.”
Before people go criticizing the Giants secondary, it would be smart to wait and see what Nat Berhe and Cooper Taylor bring to the table. Maybe even Landon Collins will be in the mix after the 2015 NFL Draft.
