6. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 8: Parris Campbell, Indianapolis Colts
Over the past two weeks, Campbell has been thriving in the Colts’ offense. He had 17 receptions for 127 yards and two touchdowns on 23 targets. His 23 targets were the fifth-most in the NFL during that span trailing only Austin Ekeler, Tyreek Hill, Chris Godwin, and Michael Pittman Jr. Campbell was quickly becoming an appealing fantasy option. However, the Colts decided to bench Matt Ryan on Monday. Sam Ehlinger will take over as the starting quarterback.
With Ehlinger at quarterback, the board is reset. Will he have strong chemistry with Campbell? The Colts are third in the NFL in passing attempts. Will they continue to throw the football that frequently?
Campbell is a high-risk, high-reward FLEX play.
5. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 8: Marquise Goodwin, Seattle Seahawks
DK Metcalf exited last Sunday’s game with a knee injury. He did not participate in Thursday’s practice.
Last week, Goodwin had four receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns. If Metcalf is out, Goodwin should continue to serve as the Seahawks’ second wide receiver. He has streaming upside.
