Five Fantasy Football Sleepers For Week 2

September 15, 2017
NFL Week 2 got off to a sleepy start, as the Houston Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 13-9. In a PPR format, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was serviceable, but there wasn't much else to see unless you had either team's defense.

Let's see who may wake us up this weekend.

1. Zach Miller, Tight End, Chicago Bears

In reality, who else can they throw to? Miller should be in line for 10-plus targets in Week 2, as the Bears look to play it safe with short-to-intermediate passes from quarterback Mike Glennon.

2. Tyrell Williams, Wide Receiver, Los Angeles Chargers

I had high hopes for him in Week 1, and it just didn't work out, which makes Williams a terrific sleeper this weekend. Even though he only had 54 receiving yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 1, Williams was targeted seven times. His targets and production should see an uptick this weekend.

3. Sam Bradford, Quarterback, Minnesota Vikings

This choice worked so well in Week 1 that I decided to go with Bradford again. He is still listed on my rankings as a QB2, but he could put up QB1 numbers against a Steelers team that made Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer competent in Week 1.

4. Allen Hurns, Wide Receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars

With Allen Robinson done for the year, Hurns is now the No. 1 receiver in Jacksonville. Most attention may go to Marqise Lee, as he could be a target monster in the slot, but Hurns is the red-zone threat on the team.

5. Charles Clay, Tight End, Buffalo Bills

Clay caught a touchdown last week and seems to now be the favorite target for quarterback Tyrod Taylor. During his past seven games going back to last season, Clay has been the No. 1 tight end in all formats.
