Fantasy Baseball “Sleepers” (profitable players) to Target in 2023

There may no such thing as a “sleeper” anymore but groupthink can adversely affect our preseason prep and draft plan. Some may still call them sleepers but what we’re essentially looking for are late-round gems who the market is maybe “sleeping” on who can provide great profit. In fantasy baseball, having good “sleepers” on your team can give you a strategic advantage over your opponents. These may be hitters and pitchers who may not be highly regarded by the market,, but who have the potential to perform well and exceed expectations. These players can often be obtained later in the draft or even picked up off the waiver wire, giving you a chance to add depth and talent to your team without having to use high draft picks.

Additionally, if a “sleeper” on your team has a breakout season, it can provide a huge boost to your team's overall performance and help you compete for the championship. Ultimately, having good “sleepers” on your team can help you build a strong and well-rounded roster that can compete with the best.

We’ll let you know who these potentially profitable players are to target!
