Who Is This Deep Sleeper Garnering Attention?

Frankie Taddeo

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Dare Ogunbowale is a very deep sleeper who is garnering attention on high stakes draftboards over at the Fantasy Football World Championships. Dare's journey into NFL back in 2017 came as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans after walking onto the University of Wisconson. He's never recorded a regular season NFL rush attempt or reception, but he appears to be the front-runner for third-down running back duties for one of the leagues pass-heaviest units led by Bruce Arians.

Early in the offseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back battle looked like a two-horse race---but thanks to a strong preseason---Dare now appears primed to have a big role as back-up running back Ronald Jones continues to struggle with pass protection. Many high stakes owners are taking notice, and Dare is being drafted in the last rounds of drafts, as a player who could offer great value as a potential starter at some point in 2019 that currently requires virtually no draft risk. Don't let Dare's name come out of left field on draft day, because as he led all Badger's RB in receptions over his final two years he could return serious value as a very deep sleeper in PPR leagues.

Love it. I have been moving him up my ranks the last two weeks. He's in my mid sixties now.
