4. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 17: Demarcus Robinson, Baltimore Ravens
Last week, Robinson had one reception for six yards and a touchdown on one target. It was an odd game for the Ravens’ offense, as no wide receiver topped two targets. Furthermore, quarterback Tyler Huntley only completed nine passes, as the Ravens deployed a very run-heavy attack with the early lead.
Prior to that game, Robinson was emerging as the Ravens’ top wide receiver. He had at least five receptions in four out of his last five games, and with Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay both on the IR, he had a clear path to targets. He has bounce-back potential this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season.
3. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 17: Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers
Doubs is perfectly positioned for a breakout game. On Sunday, he will face the Minnesota Vikings, who are giving up the most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season.
Since his return to the lineup, Doubs has remained an integral part of the Packers passing attack, as he garnered six targets last week. With Christian Watson dealing with a hip injury, Doubs could see a boost in targets on Sunday. Watson is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, and he did not participate in practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Even if Watson is active, he could be limited.
Doubs has been a valuable fantasy receiver, at times, this season. He has posted double-digit fantasy points in four games, and he recorded 21.7 fantasy points against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in Week 3.
