2021 Fantasy RB Sleepers

There is no position as thin or as important to fantasy owners as running back. If you don’t get two in the first three rounds of your draft, you had better find value in late-round sleepers or it’s going to be a long fantasy season. In this article we identify four mid-to-late round sleeper running back picks to have on your radar. Each of these RB’s is currently being drafted at least two rounds later than our rankings dictate they should be and each has upside that could make them high-end RB 2’s by the end of the season.

2020 Fantasy Rankings by Position

Hello Rookie.

Whether you are an actual DFS and sports betting rookie or a seasoned vet, we have something for you. Our set of weekly NFL articles covers each week’s game lines and prop bets, top season-long waiver adds, and our DFS strategy and targets for the week.

We have covered all things daily fantasy sports and sports betting-related since the 2013 college football season. In total, we have written 1,500 articles over those seven years, our subscribers have taken down some of the largest contests in the industry, and our community has grown into one of the largest in the industry.

While we typically release weekly articles throughout the NFL and CFB regular seasons, our staff puts out DFS content year-round. This includes season-long rankings and sleepers, NBA and CBB fantasy lineups and betting strategy, and reviews and promotions for the top fantasy websites and sportsbooks.

As a bonus to Hello Rookie readers and listeners, you will receive a free entry into each of DraftKings Millionaire Makers throughout the 2021 NFL playoffs when you register using our DraftKings promo code. We also have the latest and greatest FanDuel promotions, which includes a free entry every week for the rest of the NFL season! Our team works tirelessly throughout the season to bring you the best available promotion for every major DFS and sports betting app.

As far as college football is concerned, we have offered more fantasy CFB than any other site over the past decade. This includes season-long CFB rankings, weekly CFB DFS articles, and betting guides throughout the college football season. Find out if fantasy college football is legal in your state and where you can play.

In addition to the constantly changing legal landscape around fantasy college football and basketball, legal sports betting is slowly rolling out across the United States. You can track if sports betting is legal in your state (and when you can expect it to be legal if it is not) already by visiting our interactive state-by-state guide to legal sports betting.

Betting sites like William Hill and PointsBet are already live in a handful of states with several more set to launch in 2021. Our goal here at Hello Rookie is to help you beat these sportsbooks and our weekly picks articles do just that.

With the arrival of new, innovative companies like Monkey Knife Fight as well as the continued legalization of sports betting across the United States, we can push out more content than ever. Subscribe to our newsletter and never miss a beat.

Check Out the Podcast.

Looking for the best podcast in daily fantasy sports? We made the decision to take off the 2020-2021 NFL season as our households are full due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The podcast will return for the 2021 NBA and CBB seasons.

Worry not, we have you covered with more written content than ever! This includes the most accurate weekly lineup advice articles on the website and app.

Check out the Hello Rookie Podcast! With new episodes uploaded regularly throughout the week, we have a show for everyone.

We have a matchup show for each week of the NFL season, where we break down the most fantasy-friendly matchups for each slate. This show is essential in not only finding value on DFS but also determining your waiver wire and streaming options in season-long fantasy.

We also have episodes where we just build lineups for whatever slate is available that night. Our Vegas segments feature us sharing our favorite NFL, NBA, CFB, and CBB spread and total picks. We also occasionally rant on the DFS and sports betting industry, including any major legal rulings across the United States.

In addition to the podcast, we also have an app available in the Play Store that will keep you updated with all of our latest articles and podcasts.
