Top 5 Fantasy Football Sleepers for Week 6

Players who are owned in fewer than half of leagues can create winners for those managers who play them. Here are five for Week 6.

Heading into Week 6, I didn’t think that the injury bug could get any worse than it has in the weeks prior, and I was wrong. The best wide receiver in the league has landed on IR and one of the best rookie running backs has suffered ankle issues. On top of injuries, rookies are continuing to break through the mold and into the NFL. Here are the top five sleepers rostered by less than 50% in your fantasy leagues.

K.J. Osborn, WR, Minnesota Vikings

I originally wanted to put Jordan Addison in this spot, but he is now rostered in more than 50% of leagues. However, while Addison might be getting the biggest bump due to the news that Justin Jefferson will be out at least for four games, K.J. Osborn will also be in for an increased workload. After Jefferson went out last week, Osborn was able to haul in five of his nine targets for 49 yards finishing with 9.90 points. With a full game like that, Osborn could easily finish top 15 in points this week.

Emari Demercado, RB, Arizona Cardinals

The name Emari Demercado is probably a name that is only known by those in the deepest of dynasty formats. However, with James Conner going down with an injury last season, the rookie running back made his presence known. Demercado entered the passing game last week catching three passes on four targets for 21 yards and having 5.40 points. With Conner leaving last week, Demercado was able to total 45 yards on the ground in 10 carries with a touchdown while securing one pass for 12 yards. He should blow past those numbers this week with a start.

Tyjae Spears, RB, Tennessee Titans

Tyjae Spears has been featured in my sleeper articles and waiver wire articles multiple times now. I can confidently say that his stand-alone value with Derrick Henry has been solidified. Last week, he was able to take seven caries 34 yards for the first house call of his career. He also continued to be a huge part of the passing game with four receptions on five targets with 35 yards as well. I would not be surprised if Spears totals over 50 yards on the ground and another 50 yards in the air against Baltimore this week.

Logan Thomas, TE, Washington Commanders

Outside of Travis Kelce, Sam LaPorta and Mark Andrews, the tight end position has been up for grabs just about any week. Thomas finished as the TE10 in Week 2 with just two receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown. Last week, he broke wide open his potential with Sam Howell. Thomas had nine receptions on 11 targets for 77 yards and another touchdown. If Thomas can find the endzone this week, you can expect him to break into the TE10 area.

Josh Downs, WR, Indianapolis Colts

The big part of Josh Downs being featured on this list is actually the absence of his star rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson. In the last two games that Gardner Minshew has been featured in, Downs is averaging eight targets for seven receptions and 77 yards. Even without a touchdown, that is 14.70 points. If he scores the first touchdown of his career, he could easily bolster that number to 20.70 really quickly.
