If you need an edge to win your fantasy football matchup in Week 6, consider adding one of these sleepers at the wide receiver position.
Throughout your fantasy season, FanSided provides this weekly strategy guide detailing 10 sleeper wide receiver picks for your last-minute fantasy needs. The term sleeper describes a player that is overlooked by fantasy owners, not coveted, or generally not expected to pique your attention.
Sleepers, as part of this reference tool, are players that could meet some or all of the following criteria. First, the player may merely exceed expectations. He may be a player that is projected to perform in a mediocre manner, but we have him forecasted to fare better. Next, the player may not even be rostered in some leagues. Therefore, that player is accumulating points for nobody in your league and is destined to inspire a mad dash by owners to the waiver wire for his services.
Notable sleeper hits in this analysis last week included Darius Slayton, Emmanuel Sanders, and Mike Williams. Those three players were not heavily sought after in 2020 fantasy drafts, but they did perform admirably in Week 5.
So, let’s find out who could surprise the masses during Week 6.
**Please note: The selection of these 10 sleepers is assessed from a 10-team, PPR league perspective.
