7 Late-Round Lottery Tickets with Huge Payouts

If you've ever purchased a scratcher ticket at your local convenience store, you know the odds of hitting on a cheap lottery ticket are pretty slim. But what if I told you the tickets were free and you still could keep the money if you won? Sound like a good deal? That’s kinda how I fell about these seven players. Their ADPs and ownership levels are so low it’s almost like they are FREE. Each of these guys is being taken late in drafts or may be sitting on waivers in your league for one reason or another.

Who doesn't love some bold predictions? We all have them. You'll be hanging out with some friends, discussing the best sport on the planet, and someone will make some outrageous claim. "I bet so and so will do this," or "No way he does that this season!" Sometimes they don't even have to be performance-based, like the time I bet a buddy of mine 100 pushups that Ryan Braun would win his appeal back in 2012. Was it bold?
