8. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 5: Dyami Brown, Washington Commanders
Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel are both listed as questionable. Dotson is dealing with a hamstring injury. He was working off to the side during Friday’s practice. Meanwhile, Samuel is dealing with an unspecified illness.
Therefore, there is a potential scenario where Brown serves as the second wide receiver on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Brown was targeted four times last week. He will have an excellent matchup against the Titans. This season, the Titans have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.
Fantasy owners should monitor the statuses of both Dotson and Samuel.
7. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 5: Olamide Zaccheaus, Atlanta Falcons
Kyle Pitts has missed three practices in a row, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
With Pitts expected to miss Sunday’s game, Zaccheaus projects to be the second receiver in Atlanta’s offense. This season, Zaccheaus is third on the Falcons in targets trailing only Pitts and Drake London. He has been solid in his role; he has 10 receptions for 174 yards and a touchdown.
He is a solid streaming option this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
