This season has shown some rough games for the NFL’s top fantasy wide receivers and has forced fantasy owners to look to deep sleepers to fill the position need. Here are two sleeper wide receivers that could be in your starting roster in week 5. Both of these players are outside the top 30 on fantasy points so far this year. However, they are ramped up to turn that around in week 5.
Scantling has had a rough start to the season as Aaron Rodgers number two-weapon. Scantling has only one touchdown on the year and has yet to have a single game with over 100 yards receiving. However, Scantling is primed for a good week 5 with Davante Adams likely not playing due to a toe an injury that occurred in the Thursday night game against Eagles. In the last two games, Scantling has had 17 targets and with Adams out with a toe injury.
He is likely to bring in a lot more this upcoming week. He is facing a tough matchup against the Cowboy’s passing defense who is in the top 10 of least passing yards allowed. Although the cowboys have achieved this by facing Eli Manning, Case Keenum, Josh Rosen, and Teddy Bridgewater, they have yet to see a passing attack like the packers. Scantling is a great play in week 5 for any team looking for a sleeper.
Jeffery has had some injury problems to start the season and is just now looking to be back to 100%. Throughout the last two seasons almost every game that Jeffery has Carson Wentz throwing him the ball, they find a way to connect for a touchdown.
With DeSean Jackson still not healthy for this upcoming matchup, Jeffery should get over his fair share of targets. Jeffery has a great matchup for week 5 against a Jets team that ranks 28th in average passing yards allowed. If you are looking for a player to step up big or a daily fantasy steal, look no further than Alshon Jeffery to get the job done.
