Fantasy football season is quickly approaching. While some have already drafted their teams and are eagerly awaiting the start of the NFL regular season , others are patiently waiting it out till week three or four of the preseason where most of the starting line-ups and injuries are out in the open. If you’re one of the latter then kudos on your patience. Despite what some might think fantasy football isn’t just a game of pure luck. It requires a good deal of research, extensive knowledge of the current happenings in the NFL and a fair amount of intuition to boot. Yes there is a little bit of luck involved but those who find success are those who do their research before the draft and constantly look at ways of improving their teams over the course of the season.One popular method of getting the one up on fellow fantasy players is trying to identify certain sleeper picks for the upcoming draft. Sleepers are under the radar plyers who are generally taken later on in the draft and who’re thought of as candidates to become break out stars. Looking at a team’s depth chart regularly, reading up on training camp reports and watching multiple preseason games are all excellent ways of identifying potential sleeper picks. Of course this varies from individual to individual as different fantasy players will have their own sleepers they’re interested in targeting. So with that being said the following list contains 20 sleepers who – at this point in the offseason – look to be gearing towards great things in 2015. They might not get taken very early on in your drafts but have no doubt that these guys can definitely make an impact if starting on your team this year. Marcel Hirscher locked up the men’s World Cup giant slalom title with a race to spare on Saturday, underlining his ongoing dominance of the discipline.

The Olympic GS champion from Austria won the penultimate event of the season for his 56th career victory, giving him an insurmountable 125-point lead in the GS standings over Norwegian rival Henrik Kristoffersen. A win is worth 100 points.

And Hirscher did so in style, posting the fastest times in both runs. He finished in 2 minutes, 20.76 seconds Ryquell Armstead Jersey , beating runner-up Kristoffersen by 1.66 seconds. Alexis Pinturault of France was more than 2 seconds off the pace in third.

”I am very happy that it happened today,” said the Austrian, adding he wasn’t expecting to wrap up the title on Saturday, a day after he turned 29.

”To me this comes as a little bit as a surprise as I haven’t been thinking about it. I was just thinking about the race. Normally you would need the calculator only in two weeks’ time,” he said, referring to the World Cup finals in Are, Sweden.

Hirscher winning the race Will Harris Jersey , however, was everything but a surprise.

The Austrian has won eight of the last 10 World Cup giant slaloms and reached the podium of the other two. The last time he failed to finish in the top three was when he placed fifth at the season-ending GS in St. Moritz, Switzerland, in March 2016.

”Marcel is in his own league,” Kristoffersen said. ”It’s OK at the moment, it’s OK that Marcel wins the globe. He is the best racer.”

Kristoffersen trailed Hirscher by 0.73 seconds after the opening run. The Norwegian tried to put pressure on his Austrian rival with an all-attacking second run, but a misjudged turn halfway down the course slowed him.

”I had a big mistake in the middle part , really big. And the course is not steep after that so I had no speed. If you have such a mistake, you have no chance against Marcel,” the Norwegian said.

It was Hirscher’s fourth straight GS title and fifth in total, matching American Ted Ligety’s tally. Only Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark won the trophy more times – eight.

Working his way back from knee and back injuries, Ligety hasn’t won a race since October 2015. On Saturday, he missed a gate and went out before the first split time of his opening run.

Apart from dominating GS, Hirscher was also expected to also wrap up the slalom title this weekend as he will enter Sunday’s race with a 144-point lead over Kristoffersen.

And Rashan Gary Jersey , more importantly, the Austrian is also on the brink of an unprecedented seventh straight overall championship.

Leading Kristoffersen by 269 points, Hirscher won’t be able to officially claim the big crystal globe on Sunday with six races still to go. However, unless Kristoffersen starts competing in other events than slalom and GS, he will be left with just two more chances to score points after the weekend.
