2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: 35 late-round sleepers for deep leagues

Your draft won’t drag on forever. But if it did, these are some of the players you might consider targeting.

I do play in several leagues deep enough that all 35 of these players are eventually taken. Maybe you do, too. More likely, you’ll see just a handful go. I limited my selection to those taken beyond the top 276, according to FantasyPros ADP. The significance? Well, that’s the total number of lineup spots that need to be filled in a 12-team Rotisserie league, which isn’t to say this list is only applicable to Rotisserie leagues, 12 teams or otherwise. But there needed to be some guidelines for which players I’m allowed to pick, and that’s the way I decided to do it.

As you can see, I had trouble limiting myself as it is.

Even if your league doesn’t go deep enough for you to consider a single one of these players, they’re names to file away in case they make some noise early. They’re low-probability investments, of course — they wouldn’t go so late if they weren’t — but the upside is there for them to make a considerable impact.

Note: Within each position, the players are listed by my order of preference, but ADP (also shown) may have some say in when I actually draft them.
