Let’s break down 10 wide receiver sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 6.
Week 6 is bringing the first bye week of the NFL season. As a result, many productive fantasy football wide receivers will be unavailable this week, including Amon-Ra St. Brown, Brandin Cooks, Davante Adams, and Robert Woods.
Let’s take a look at 10 wide receiver sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 6. Every player listed is widely available in ESPN leagues.
10. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 6: Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
Surprisingly, Cobb led the Packers in receptions (7), receiving yards (99), and targets (13) last week.
Last season, Cobb had big performances at random moments. He posted 16+ fantasy points in three individual games.
Week 4: 23.9 fantasy points
Week 8: 16.5 fantasy points
Week 12: 17.5 fantasy points
In the following games, he averaged only 6.5 fantasy points.
Coming off a 13-target performance, Cobb is worth a look, but fantasy owners should be wary. He is a deep league flier.
9. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 6: Darius Slayton, New York Giants
Slayton emerged as the leading Giants receiver last week, as he had six receptions for 79 yards on seven targets. No other Giants wide receivers saw more than three targets.
With Wan’Dale Robinson, Kenny Golladay, and Kadarius Toney listed as questionable, there is a chance that Slayton could serve as the top wide receiver again this week.
In addition, Slayton will face the Baltimore Ravens, who have given up the third-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season.
On paper, Slayton has big-game potential, and he is worth a flier in deeper leagues.
