In our last edition of Flash Forward, I examined the players many consider “locks” to be first round startup draft picks a year from now. This is most important not because of some imaginary honor that comes with being among the top twelve players off the board, but rather due to the understanding and expectation of these players’ future value. Building around a player most expect to lose value in the coming months seems like faulty logic. As a follow up to the original question regarding players certain to be first round startup picks in 2016, I asked this question, again with a high volume of responses…
Have my list of sure thing 2016 1st round startup picks.Now, give me ONE sleeper who has a good chance to be a 1st round startup pick in ’16

Just as with the first question centered on “sure things” this question about sleepers was interpreted in different ways, as you’ll see with the wide variety of responses. All of these players can be considered long-shots to be among the top 12 players off the board in 2016, but one thing they all have in common is that they are expected, by at least one respondent, to gain value over the next few months.
