Sleepers. How you win your leagues. I love sleepers; it’s my favorite part of any fantasy forecasting where you identify the diamonds in the rough. A big reason I love sleepers is they are the guys that can end up on a lot of your teams at a draft day value discounted where you know you can beat your draft to them.
So that takes me to DeMar DeRozan, a guy I wasn’t going to write my first sleeper post on at first, but amidst my ranking at 67 in my Way Too Early Rankings, I decided to dig deeper and try to convince Razzballers why they should spend a higher price on DeRozan than other rankings would suggest:
2012-13 Line: 18.1 Pts/3.9 Reb/2.5 Ast/0.9 Stl/0.3 Blk/6.7 FGM/0.4 3PTM/4.3 FTM
2012-13 %s: 44.5 FG%/28.3 3PT%/83.1 FT%
Decent numbers across the board, but nothing really sticks out. DeRozan’s best asset, scoring, is obviously not the most ideal stat, but is still valuable. DeRozan also set career-highs in several stats, including points, assists, rebounds, and FT%. Sure se...
