Opportunity is just as much of a factor as talent when it comes to finding the next fantasy football sleeper. Ryquell Armstead is entering his second year in the league after the Jaguars made him the second pick in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He comes from a small school, Temple University, whose toughest in-conference opponents were UCF and Cincinnati. Even while playing against the less-than-stellar competition, Armstead was only able to rush for 1000 yards his senior year, despite getting at least 150 carries in each of his last three years. His 4.45 40 yard dash was particularly impressive considering his 220-pound frame, but otherwise, he did not wow anybody at the combine. It is no surprise that he was the twelfth running back off the board.
I had a very high opinion of Dwayne Haskins going into the 2019 NFL Draft. With only seven starts in an unfortunate situation last year, my opinion of him has not changed. He threw for seven touchdowns and seven interceptions on a 58.6% completion percentage. Those numbers do not scream optimism, but when looking at the whole picture, it is easy to see why he struggled. Let's take a look at the situation.
