Week 11 WR Sleepers
Every week, we highlight WR sleepers available in over 50% of Yahoo! leagues to help you find players streamable to help you win! For those of us in deep leagues, we kick in a player available in over 90% of Yahoo! leagues. Figures are as of Thursday morning.
Anthony Miller versus Minnesota (39% owned)
Anthony Miller doesn’t have the best matchup in the world, but I’m using this part of the WR sleepers list as more of a PSA to go get him if he’s available in your league. He’s overtaken Taylor Gabriel as the WR2 (and given Allen Robinson’s 2018, he may be the WR1 soon). He has averaged 6.5 targets per game over the last four weeks and has scored in two of his last three contests. He posted 122 yards last week and was a hot pickup, which makes his ownership percentage a bit off. He might take another big jump this week, so get ahead of the curve. Minnesota allows just the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, so like I said. This isn’t a sleeper pick and more of a general call to go pick up Anthony Miller before it’s too late.
Keke Coutee at Washington (30% owned)
The addition of Demaryius Thomas has people running away from Coutee, who should return from a hamstring strain this week. I’m not scared of Thomas, though the injury does concern me and makes him a good addition to the WR sleepers list this week. Coutee averaged more targets per game than Will Fuller did when they were both in the lineup, and I believe he will get part of his old role plus the Will Fuller role. That gives him a bunch of targets to work with, and the Will Fuller role means a lot of air yards, as well. Those combine to equal a lot of production. This week he gets a Washington defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers on the season, and they have allowed an average of two WRS with 9+ fantasy points to wide receivers in every game this season.
Michael Gallup at Atlanta (7% owned)
I will not give up on Michael. He made this list last week and did almost nothing, but the addition of Amari Cooper does a ton to open up opportunities for Gallup in the offense. This week, he should take his WR2 role to Atlanta, where the Cowboys will need to air it out to keep up with the potent Falcons offense. He should top his career-high six targets this week, and that means a good chance at opportunity. The Falcons allow the third most fantasy points to wide receivers and have trouble with the home fast track. They’ve given up three 100+ yard days and 3 touchdowns to wide receivers in their last three games. Amari Cooper will eat, but Gallup will get the leftovers. He will not be on the next WR sleepers list if he does not produce this week. I promise. But for now, I will not relent, I will not give up. I will not quit on Gallup.
