Five Fantasy Football Sleepers For Week 6

October 12, 2018
The Philadelphia Eagles dominated the New York Giants Oct. 11, and we got solid fantasy nights from Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, tight end Zach Ertz, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, running back Corey Clement and Giants running back Saquon Barkley. Not so much from Giants quarterback Eli Manning and receiver Odell Beckham Jr. 

Let's get to some sleepers for Week 6:

1. Austin Hooper, Tight End, Atlanta Falcons

No team has given up more points to opposing tight ends than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In a game where points should be plentiful, Hooper should be a solid tight end option this week.

2. Sammy Watkins, Wide Receiver, Kansas City Chiefs

Watkins should be open all day as the Patriots try to take away tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Watkins was solid last week and should be in line for a big Week 6. 

3. Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, Denver Broncos

Sutton has been targeted five or more times during four of Denver's five games this year. The Broncos' game script against the Los Angeles Rams could/should force Denver to throw often, either to keep up or catch up. 

4. Antonio Callaway, Wide Receiver, Cleveland Browns

Last week I had Rashard Higgins here and it paid off, but Higgins is now injured and will miss a few weeks. That clears targets for Callaway, who was on a downward trend but gets a nice matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers and should see more opportunities this week.

5. Taywan Taylor, Wide Receiver, Tennessee Titans

Baltimore Ravens slot corner Tavon Young has struggled at times this year, and he should be matched up with Taylor a lot. That makes Taylor a solid play, as the Titans need to throw Oct. 14.
