VIDEO: Jim Nantz talks sleepers on Fantasy Football Today

Remember Julius Thomas? Of course you do. Nobody really drafted him last season, but then he went bonkers in Week 1 to the tune of 23 Fantasy points. He's the perfect example of how tight end can be kind of a mystery. 

So when Jim Nantz, who's called countless football games and actually gets to see all these guys in person, says he's got a couple sleepers, you're probably going to want to at least hear him out. On the Tuesday show, he highlighted two late-round fliers on his own PPR team -- Richard Rodgers of Green Bay and Travis Kelce of Kansas City. He's also buying the Emmanuel Sanders hype, even upping the ante by predicting a 100-catch season. 

His team might lack a top-tier WR or even a TE that one of our writers has ranked in the top 15, but there's nice upside for Kelvin Benjamin, and capable TEs are usually readily available off the waiver wire in case his sleepers don't pan out right away. He's been playing Fantasy for more than 10 years, so given his profession, we're not going to question his strategy.

We'll have guest analysts join the show all season long on Fantasy Football Today, which starts a regular Monday through Friday rotation next week.
