IDPw/BEE 32-Teams 32-Sleepers & Risers

As we are approaching draft season or in the middle of a draft and you’re looking for some late round fliers on any IDP then this is the list for you.  I take a look at each NFL team and choose 1 IDP per team that I believe is either undervalued, has that sleeper potential or a player to stash on your roster in your dynasty league.  There are some players in here that may not get drafted at all during your draft, therefore it’ll allow you to keep an eye on them and pick them up via waivers when their time comes.  The LB position is once again filled with depth, don’t need the big name guys to help you win your league, a few of these players can do the job.
