Jacksonville won six of its final seven regular-season games to take the AFC South title last year and rallied from a 27-0 deficit to beat the Chargers in the opening round of the NFL playoffs. Former No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence completed 66.3% of his passes, tallied 25 touchdowns and threw just eight interceptions, improving his passer rating from 71.9 (2021) to 95.2 (2022). Lawrence became just the second quarterback since 1950 to double his wins and passing touchdowns while cutting his interceptions in half, making him one of the Fantasy football breakouts. He’s barely among the top 10 quarterbacks drafted according to the 2023 Fantasy football ADP, potentially making him one of the 2023 Fantasy football sleepers to target. His receivers could be names to remember in the 2023 Fantasy football PPR rankings.

Last year, the model accurately predicted that Cowboys running back Tony Pollard would dramatically outperform his eighth-round Fantasy football ADP in PPR leagues. The result: Pollard supplanted Ezekiel Elliott as the most productive option in the Dallas backfield and finished the season with 1,378 scrimmage yards and 12 touchdowns. He finished as the No. 8 running back in PPR formats and finished ahead of Aaron Jones and Dalvin Cook, who both had top-10 overall ADPs.
The same model has a proven track record providing Fantasy football tips, also identifying A.J. Brown as another sleeper in 2020 and players like Julio Jones and JuJu Smith-Schuster as Fantasy football busts last season. Additionally, it’s called past Fantasy football sleepers like Derrick Henry in 2019, Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara in 2018, and Davante Adams in 2017. Anybody who banked on players like those made a run at their league title.
The model is powered by the same people who generated projections for all three major Fantasy sites, and it beat human experts last season when there was a big difference in ranking. The 2023 Fantasy football PPR rankings and 2023 Fantasy football standard rankings update multiple times daily, so you’re always getting the best Fantasy football advice.
Now, SportsLine has simulated the entire NFL season 10,000 times and released its latest Fantasy football rankings 2023, along with plenty of sleepers, breakouts and busts. Head to SportsLine now to see them.
Top 2023 Fantasy football sleepers
One of the 2023 Fantasy football sleepers the model is predicting: Jaguars tight end Evan Engram. He had a career resurgence in his first year under coach Doug Pederson, racking up 766 receiving yards and four touchdowns, nearly doubling his yardage from 2021. Engram is in a better system than he was in Jason Garrett’s offense, finishing as a TE1 in six games last year.
Engram’s main issue last year was consistency, as he finished outside the top 24 at his position in eight games. However, that should not be a major concern as he heads into his second season in the offense, especially now that he has developed chemistry with quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Engram is set to have the best season of his career, making him an undervalued player in 2023 Fantasy football drafts.
Another sleeper that SportsLine’s Fantasy football rankings 2023 have identified: Cardinals running back James Conner. With Kyler Murray potentially missing several weeks while recovering from a torn ACL he suffered late last season, Arizona could turn to veteran Colt McCoy as the starter, which could be a boon for James Conner owners.
The two-time Pro Bowl running back missed four games in 2022, but still produced 1,082 yards and eight touchdowns. He could be in line for close to 20 touches a game with the Cardinals looking to protect whomever is under center. That’s a big reason why the model ranks him as a top-20 running back despite the fact that he’s been the 27th player off the board at the position in PPR leagues.
