6. Week 1 Fantasy Football WR sleepers: D.J. Chark, Detroit Lions
In 2019, D.J. Chark was a 1,000-yard receiver, and he was 17th among wide receivers in fantasy points.
Unfortunately, he has struggled with injuries, and he appeared in only four games last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Chark is now healthy, and he’s still only 25 years old.
First-round pick Jameson Williams has been ruled out for Week 1, so Chark will only compete with Amon-Ra St. Brown for targets.
Due to his talent, Chark is worth a flier.
5. Week 1 Fantasy Football WR sleepers: DeVante Parker, New England Patriots
Like Chark, DeVante Parker has been an elite fantasy wide receiver in the past. In 2019, Parker had the second-most fantasy points among wide receivers over the final 13 games of the season.
In Miami, Parker thrived with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback, but he struggled to build chemistry with Tua Tagovailoa.
Now with the Patriots, Parker is a high upside, low-risk option.
Jakobi Meyers is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins, which gives Parker a further boost in fantasy value. He could have a statement game against his former team.
