There are no more important players in fantasy Football than the sleepers. These are the undervalued guys that are selected in the later rounds who can then bring massive value to your team. These players have the potential to go off and score a massive number of points and win fantasy matchups for you during the year. Let's take a look at a few of the sleepers who could help you win a championship in 2016.

1. Steve Smith

Steve Smith planned to retire at the end of last season, but an injury derailed those plans. Now he is back for 2016 and will be a major part of a Ravens offense that loves to throw the ball. Last season, Smith managed to compile 670 yards and 3 touchdowns in just 8 games.

That's an average of more than 80 receiving yards per game! Currently, Smith is going well after pick #100 in fantasy drafts, which is crazy for a player who was farther more productive than that when healthy last year.

2. Zach Ertz

The Eagles tight ended his 2016 season with a bang. In his last three games, Ertz had a combined 352 receiving yards and 30 receptions.

If he can continue that production in 2016, he will be one of the top fantasy tight ends in the league. Right now, Ertz is being selected after pick #120, making him one of the best value tight ends in fantasy.

3. Kenneth Dixon

The Baltimore Ravens have a competition at running back that has still not been resolved.

Running back Justin Forsett looks like he has the lead right now, but things can quickly change.

Dixon was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL draft as Forsett's presumptive replacement and could overtake him at some point this year. It's still ridiculous that Dixon scored a NCAA record 87 touchdowns in his four years of college. Dixon is currently being drafted well after pick #100, making him a low risk, high reward fantasy selection.

4. Chris Hogan

The new Patriots addition has been fantastic at training camp, easily developing a rapport with Tom Brady and getting open consistently. If he can continue that in the regular season, he will have solid value as another piece of the Patriots dangerous passing attack.

Right now, you can get Chris Hogan in whatever round you would like. Most people are not interested in drafting the third receiver in the Patriots offense, but he has the talent to be a legitimate fantasy starter in 2016.

5. Jay Cutler

The Bears starting quarterback has been drawing hate for the entire offseason. He didn't have a great year last season but still managed to pass for more than 3500 yards and pass for 21 touchdowns. And Cutler will now be getting the help of Kevin White, who is poised for a breakout year.

He will also get a healthy Alshon Jeffery back, a player who can help him reach greater fantasy heights in 2016.

Cutler is currently going undrafted, making him worth a sleeper pickup.
