Tua Tagovailoa (MIA) – Tua has been off and on all year, but he gets a good matchup this week against the New York Jets defense that ranks 30th in pass DVOA.

Cam Newton (CAR) – Cam found the end zone twice last week (one rushing and one passing), and that was in a limited role! He gets the start this week and faces the Washington Football Team defense that allows the most fantasy points to QBs.

Baker Mayfield (CLE) – Baker has had a pretty bad season thus far and admitted to being the most banged up he’s ever been. Luckily for him, he gets a Detroit defense that ranks 29th in pass DVOA.

Leonard Fournette (TB) – Fournette has had 90+ total yards in five of his last six games. This week he gets the New York Giants defense that surrenders over 100 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards too RBs. He’s definitely getting in some lineups this week!

D’Onta Foreman (TEN) – Foreman led the Tennessee Titans backfield with 78 scrimmage yards last week, even with the signing of veteran RB Adrian Peterson, Foreman looks to remain the lead back now that Derrick Henry is out for the year. He’ll get a chance to prove himself against the 1-8 Houston Texans.

Devonta Freeman (BAL) – Freeman has scored in three out of his last four games and gets a Chicago Bears defense that ranks 21st in rush DVOA.

Corey Davis (NYJ) – Davis only has four TDs so far this season, mostly due to injuries keeping him off the field. However, he gets a Miami Dolphins defense this weekend that ranks 22nd in pass DVOA.

DeVonta Smith (PHI) – Smith has three TDs in his last two games and this week faces a New Orleans Saints defense that allows over 260 passing yards per game, that’s 26th in the NFL.

Brandin Cooks (HOU) – Cooks has been the only shining star on a terrible Houston Texans team. He averages at least 5 targets in every game and Tennessee gives up the most passing yards and second most TDs to WRs.

Dawson Knox (BUF) – Knox will make a big return after only making one reception in his return last week. Expect those targets to go up when he faces an Indianapolis Colts defense that’s 26th in pass DVOA.

Adam Trautman (NO) – Adam has back-to-back eight fantasy point games and now faces a Philadelphia Eagles defense that allows the most fantasy points to TEs.

Mike Gesicki (MIA) – Gesicki had zero points last week, but it wasn’t from lack of trying. He is averaging seven targets a games and facing the New York Jets defense, it should continue that upward trend.

Brandon Aiyuk (SF) – Aiyuk is slowing coming into his own. Deebo Samuel may still be crowned King of this offense, but Aiyuk should continue to see targets with the starting RB Elijah Mitchell injured. Jimmy may look to pass more and Aiyuk should be the beneficiary of that.

James Conner (AZ) – Conner has 12 TDs this season (!), which is ridiculous and he gets a great matchup against a terrible Seattle Seahawks rushing defense.

DJ Moore (CAR) – Moore hasn’t seen four targets or more in his last three games. However, with Cam Newton back and a New York Jets defense that has allowed the most fantasy points, I expect to see his targets go up significantly.

There you have it folks. Another round up of some good ol’ fantasy sleepers to help you along this week. As usual, have fun and good luck in your leagues this week! Come back next week for another round of fantasy sleepers! If you appreciate my picks, let me know on Twitter!
