Who are some players to go out and try to add in your dynasty league or to get onto your draft boards in seasonal leagues for the 2024 Fantasy Football season?

Finding the best sleepers and under-the-radar players is one of the most fun aspects of fantasy football. When you hit on one of these players, particularly when you play in a league with several savvy managers, it can be quite rewarding. So the best way to do that is to get an early jump on the research process.

Looking at every team's current 53-man rosters, there are a lot of questions, particularly with free agency still about a month away. But taking into account what we saw this past season and considering the direction each team is currently headed in, we can make some eductaed guesses.

Here are some players to start keeping tabs on or if you are in a dynasty league, some players you may want to float an offer for to see if you can get them on your team right now.

2024 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Running Back

Eric Gray, New York Giants: The Giants will likely try and bring Saquon Barkley back but he is a free agent and could be looking to play for a more competitive team. Matt Breida will also be an unrestricted free agent.

Eric Gray was used sparingly as a rookie but he came out of college as a fifth-round pick with a lot of promise. Depending on what the Giants do in free agency and/or the draft, Gray could easily be the team's No. 2 RB next season.

Chris Rodriguez, Washington Commanders: Rodriguez looked good the stretch for Washington this past season and he averaged nearly five yards per carry as a rookie. He can be a pounder for the team and there is room for him to be much more of a force next season as Antonio Gibson is set to hit free agency.

Sean Tucker, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: This is really throwing a dart, but Tucker had some buzz during the preseason after going undrafted out of Syracuse. We didn't see much out of him as a rookie, but with Chase Edmonds looking at free agency, he moves up the depth chart in Tampa.

Rachaad White is easily the Bucs' bellcow runner, but Tucker could be a nice No. 2 option for them in 2024.
