Need some help with your Week Five sleeper picks? (TopBet.eu)

In preparation for Fantasy play Week Five of the NFL season, it’s time to make some moves in your Fantasy leagues and to also take a closer look at the once forgotten teams. Before the season kicked off there were a few squads that people had completely written off. However, thanks to a broken jaw, the rise of a few rookies and an injured star, the landscape has changed dramatically. For a better look at what’s ahead we thought we’d check in with one of this week’s sportbook expert picks.

Once-Sleeper Teams to Revisit

Buffalo Bills (AFC East): The Bills are off to a 2-2 start, but could very easily have be 3-1 or perhaps undefeated had their defense been a little more disciplined the past few weeks. The bottom line is that Buffalo is a dark horse in a division that’s completely up for grabs. Look for the Bills to storm Titans this weekend.

Atlanta Falcons (NFC South): Like the Carolina Panthers (also a surprise), the Falcons are off to a perfect 4-0 start in 2015. Julio Jones has been an absolute beast (maybe even Jerry Rice-like, as per the video below) along with second-year running back Devonta Freeman (see below for more on him), who has really taken advantage of the rib injury to rookie Tevin Coleman. The Falcons have put up the second-most points in the NFL to this point (137, behind only Arizona’s 148) and have the troubled Washington Redskins in their crosshairs this weekend.

Jacksonville Jaguars (NFC South): The Jags are not an every weekend play, but in Week Five look for them to make some noise. They absolutely should have beaten the Andrew Luck-less Colts in Week Four, but thanks to missed field goal after missed field goal by rookie kicker Jason Myers, they couldn’t quite pull it off. This weekend, look for Jacksonville to redeem itself against Tampa Bay and QB Jameis Winston — who was picked four times in Week Four. The Jags won’t have an easier matchup all year.

Once-Sleeper Fantasy Pickups

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, New York Jets: The Jets’ replacement/”insurance guy should Geno Smith go down” took the reins this summer after Smith broke his jaw. “Fitzmagic” has been incredible, leading the Jets to a superb 3-1 start to the season. He has seven touchdown passes and 934 yards passing already and, aside from New England in Week Seven, has a cupcake schedule until November 12 (Washington, New England, Oakland, Jacksonville).

Devonta Freeman, RB, Atlanta Falcons: Freeman has been a Fantasy god so far this season. He’s had no less than 10 touches in every game and has put up six touchdowns in his last two performances. Although he only had 65 totes as rookie last season, in 2015, he’s leading an Atlanta ground game that’s been non-existent since the days of Michael Turner.

Karlos Williams, RB, Buffalo Bills: The backup running back scored a touchdown in the first three games of the season. He’s been a total Fantasy dream come true and has put up strong numbers week in and week out. While Williams is currently dealing with a concussion, if he’s healthy he’ll have the starting gig for at least a few more weeks as Buffalo’s huge offseason pickup (LeSean McCoy) recovers from a hamstring injury.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below which sleepers you’re targeting for Week Five.

2015 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Deep Sleepers

February 4, 2015 | by Tim McLeod | Comments Comments Off
Graveman went from Low-A to the big league roster in one year and his minor league numbers didn’t skip a beat as he moved to the higher levels. In 167 1/3 IP he allowed 142 hits and 31 walks while striking out 115 in posting an outstanding 1.83 ERA. He will definitely be a part of the A’s pitching plan this season.

2014-15 RotoRob NBA Draft Kit: Top 10 Sleepers

We fully expect Rubio to be given the keys to the offense and to help this team grow around his skills and develop this talented group of youngsters into a good team over the next few seasons. We think his assist numbers will go up, and he’s already a great source of steals. Finally, let’s remember that Rubio is still only 23 years old.

2014-15 RotoRob NHL Draft Kit: Top 10 Sleepers

Sleepers are fun because not only can they make or break your Fantasy hockey season, but you’re also bound to get some interesting reactions from other Fantasy GMs. Hopefully, because you’re reading RotoRob.com’s Fantasy content religiously — as you very well should if you aren’t already — those reactions will be of disbelief and jealously rather than guffaws and scorn. Onward.

2014 RotoRob NFL Draft Kit: Top 10 Sleepers

Now they should completely understand each other and that can only lead to a better tomorrow. Even though Bowe likes to get a high himself (given his most recent mishap) we still think he is the top option in an economical offense. He will slip in your draft and you could have a top target as your WR3.
