8. Week 1 Fantasy Football WR sleepers: Julio Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sunday Night Football between the Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys is primed to be a shootout. Last season, the Buccaneers won 31-29, and the two teams posted a combined 770 passing yards.
Julio Jones is well-positioned to play a prominent role for the Buccaneers. Both Chris Godwin and Russell Gage are listed as questionable, which would leave Jones as the team’s second wide receiver behind Mike Evans.
Fantasy owners should monitor the statuses of Godwin and Gage, and if both players are ruled out, Jones could be in store for a big game.
7. Week 1 Fantasy Football WR sleepers: Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
The Packers lost wide receivers Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the offseason, and someone has to catch the football. Cobb is listed as a starter on the Packers’ unofficial depth chart.
Last season, the Minnesota Vikings allowed the most receiving yards in the NFL, and the Packers scored 30+ points in both of their matchups against the Vikings.
In addition, Allen Lazard is questionable with an ankle injury.
Cobb was not a big fantasy producer in 2021, but he did have three individual 15+ fantasy point games. With a prime matchup, he is a high upside streaming option this week.
