Week 6 is starting in one day and here some fantasy football sleepers most likely available in your league and poised for big games in Week 6:
Carson Palmer, Cardinals QB *. Right now it looks like Palmer’s health is heading in a positive direction for the Cardinals’ matchup this Sunday with Washington. If starting, Palmer would be going up against a team that has given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Don’t forget Palmer had a great Week 1 performance (his last outing) against San Diego and remains one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the NFL.
Mohamed Sanu, Bengals WR. Fun fact: Sanu leads Cincinnati in targets from QB Andy Dalton (Yes, more than AJ Green or Giovani Bernard). Consequently, Sanu has been having a solid year thus far with 234 receiving yards and two touchdowns already. Their opponent, the Panthers, have given up big days to multiple receivers in the last few weeks (Forte/Jeffrey – Bears and Smith/Smith – Ravens). Sanu, along with AJ Green, both have potential for big games.
Andrew Hawkins, Browns WR. Hawkins has great potential this week against the Steelers for at least a good game (if not great). We’ve had the fortune of already seeing a Browns-Steelers game this season in Week 1 where Hawkins had eight receptions for 87 yards. Not only does Hawkins lead the Browns in targets (by far), but his 42 targets in 2014 ranks at No. 15 in the NFL. The ball has been thrown in his direction at least 9 times each game this season and given the past outing against the Steelers, Hawkins should be a good play this week.
Heath Miller, Steelers TE. Miller has been a frustrating player for many fantasy owners over the course of his career. Forgetting about the past, 2014 has been very kind to MIller and is on pace to achieve one of his best statistical seasons. Only Antonio Brown has more targets on the Steelers, But Miller’s 30 targets this season is a solid number and the Browns’ weak defense can lead to a good game for Heath Miller this Sunday.
