6. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 6: Breshad Perriman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, and Russell Gage are all listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. Godwin and Jones did not participate in Thursday’s practice, while Gage was a limited participant.
Meanwhile, Breshad Perriman is returning from a knee/hamstring injury. He was a full participant in practice. Perriman played a role in Tampa Bay’s passing attack early in the season. In Week 2, he had three receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown on five targets.
This Sunday, the Buccaneers will face the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have given up the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. If Godwin and Jones are ruled out, Perriman is a nice under-the-radar option.
5. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 6: Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals
Tee Higgins re-aggravated his ankle injury last week against the Baltimore Ravens. Higgins did not participate in practice on Wednesday or Thursday. His status is worth monitoring this weekend.
If Higgins does not play, Tyler Boyd could see a boost in volume, and he would project to be a solid FLEX option.
