Let’s break down 10 wide receiver sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 17.
If you are searching for a wide receiver for your title game, you’re in luck.
Here are 10 sleepers fantasy football managers could pick up to help bring home a title.
10. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 17: Trenton Irwin, Cincinnati Bengals
Irwin had two receiving touchdowns last week; he narrowly missed scoring a third touchdown, as well. Playing behind Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd, Irwin is a long shot to repeat that performance. Still, the red zone usage was noteworthy. He is a flier in deeper leagues.
9. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 17: Greg Dortch, Arizona Cardinals
Dortch continues to randomly appear on the fantasy radar. He had a strong start to the season, in which he was 19th among wide receivers in fantasy points across the first three weeks. However, he would go on to have only 23 total receiving yards in his next seven games. Dortch surprisingly had a 103-yard game in Week 10, then failed to record a single catch until last week.
Well, Dortch did not just record another catch in Week 16; he had 10 receptions for 98 yards on 11 targets. Notably, DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown were both active. It is worth noting that Trace McSorley started at quarterback, and Colt McCoy is expected to take over as the starter this week.
Dortch is worth a flier in deeper formats, but he carries significant risk.
