It’s time to kick off the 2021 Fantasy Football Season and Bruno Boys is here to start another season of NFL action with you. It’s fantasy draft season, which means that everywhere you look, there’s a draft going on. Whether it be best ball, dynasty, auction, redraft leagues, keeper drafts, or weekly formats, players need to have some sleepers in their back pocket to navigate the second half of their drafts.

Barring injuries, the first four to six rounds should be money as long as you let the draft come to you (don’t reach). But it’s rounds seven and beyond where you separate yourself from your competitors and build quality depth while keeping your in-season roster modifications to a minimum. Let’s talk about the Quarterbacks.

We are here to reassure anyone drafting their starting quarterback from the 6th round and later that there will be plenty of value still available. More than likely, Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers (now that he’s settled things with the Packers’ front office) will be gone by then. Josh Allen will be long gone too, and no one is sleeping on Justin Herbert either. But Allen and Herbert were viewed as sleepers lase

Then you’re kicking the tires on the likes of Russell Wilson, Ryan Tannehill, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan, and yes, Tom Brady. The fact is, this position is deep, but you will need two quality starters get you through a 17-game season, and that goes for any format, especially those that start two quarterbacks. Here are five sleepers to target in the later rounds.

Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

I’m not completely sold on Hurts yet as a starter. He’s missing a lot of experience for me to take him as my QB1. However, if you have a stable starter, like Mahomes or Rodgers for instance, Hurts is a calculated risk. There’s upside that he is able to work with the young receivers at Eagles camp and commands the huddle.

He’s not looking over his shoulder with Joe Flacco backing up, but he has many areas to improve and there’s plenty of room for growth. That said, Hurts is a dual-threat and even if he doesn’t throw more than two touchdowns per game, he can still score an additional 6 to 12 points each game with his feet if he simply scrambles for 60 total yards and scores a red zone touchdown.

Hurts’ current ADP is the middle of the 9th round as the QB12, which I think would be the highest round to take him. He still has a boom or bust factor that’s hard to ignore but try targeting him in the 10th or 11th rounds, when the risk is lower and definitely as your QB2.
