Let’s break down 10 wide receiver sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 18.
Well, here we are. It’s Week 18 of the NFL season. Whether your fantasy football league is still active or you are participating in daily fantasy, let’s break down 10 wide receiver sleepers for the final week of the regular season.
10. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 18: Demarcus Robinson, Baltimore Ravens
With Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay on the IR, Robinson continues to serve as the lead wide receiver in Baltimore. However, that has not resulted in consistent fantasy production.
With Lamar Jackson at quarterback, Robinson enjoyed some big games, including a 128-yard performance in Week 11, but the Ravens’ passing attack has taken a step back with backup Tyler Huntley. Last week, Robinson led the Ravens’ wide receivers with only three targets. He finished with one reception for nine yards.
Jackson has been ruled out for Sunday’s game, so Huntley will remain the starter.
Given his clear path to targets, Robinson still holds fantasy potential, but he carries demonstrated risk.
9. Fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 18: Shi Smith, Carolina Panthers
Last week, Smith had four receptions for a season-high 70 yards and a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the Panthers out of the playoff race, the 24-year-old Smith should see more opportunities this week against the New Orleans Saints.
Smith is worth a flier in deeper formats.
