In fantasy football, everyone likes to focus on the early and late rounds of a draft. Avoid busts with your first couple of picks, aim for sleepers after you've filled out your starting lineup, and you'll be set.

DeAndre Hopkins (32), Doug Martin (37), Amari Cooper (44), Jarvis Landry (50), Brandon Marshall (51), Keenan Allen (55), Todd Gurley (56), Russell Wilson (64), Allen Robinson (66) and Tyler Eifert (98), all players who were vital in a lot of championship runs, were selected between the 30th and 100th picks.
