6. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 5: Zay Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars
Jones had a strong start to the season. Over the first three weeks, Jones recorded 19 receptions for 173 yards and a touchdown. During that span, he was 26th among wide receivers in fantasy points. His best performance came in Week 3 when he had 10 receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Jones missed last week’s game due to an ankle injury, however, he was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, and he is listed as questionable. If he plays, he is a nice under-the-radar option this week.
5. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 5: George Pickens, Pittsburgh Steelers
Early in the season, Pickens flashed elite upside. This catch remains one of the most impressive this season:
Pittsburgh’s quarterback play limited his fantasy value. In Week 4, things changed, as Kenny Pickett took over at quarterback. Pickett and Pickens had apparent chemistry, and Pickens had six receptions for 102 yards on a career-high eight targets.
Pickens will have a difficult matchup this week against the Buffalo Bills, but he carries a high ceiling.
