Week Four WR Sleepers

I’m not going to sugarcoat it or lie to you, the week four sleeper wide receivers were extremely difficult to find this week. It was one guy sliding in at exactly 50%. Then, everyone between him and oblivion, have a bad matchup, are on bye, or just plain suck. So if you aren’t happy with the week four wide receiver sleeper offerings, guess what? Neither am I! As always, check out Waleed Ismail’s Week Four Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet to see if any of those guys slipped through, and then the week four quarterback sleepers below. To qualify for the WR sleepers list, the wide receiver must be available in at least 50% of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues, with one player under 10% ownership.

Well, here goes nothing.

Week Four WR Sleeper:
Courtland Sutton versus Jacksonville (50% Owned)

Through three weeks, only 24 wide receivers have more targets than Sutton. Ironically, he’s only one target behind Emmanuel Sanders, who burst onto the scene with big games in the first two weeks. While Sutton had a down week two from a production standpoint, he had seven targets. Sutton’s turned in good, startable games in two-of-three weeks, averaging getting seven catches, 120 yards in week one and five catches, 87 yards in week three.

The Jags currently allow the third-most fantasy points to wide receivers, though a lot of that has to do with Sammy Watkins notching 198 and three scores in week one. However, Two guys on the Titans (of all teams) last week had at least 8 fantasy points in half-PPR leagues. They’ll be without Jalen Ramsey again, and Sutton should take advantage of a depleted defense.

Week Four WR Sleeper:
Paul Richardson at N.Y. Giants (5% Owned)

I wasn’t big on Paul Richardson going into the year, but he has at least seven targets in two-of-three games so far, posting touchdowns in each of the last two games. If you’re this deep, pull the trigger on Richardson this week no matter if it’s Case Keenum or Dwayne Haskins under center for Washington.

The Giants let Mike Evans get right in a big way last week, and they allow the second-most fantasy football points to wide receivers on the season. They’ve already allowed six touchdowns to WRs in three games, and seven wideouts have double-digit fantasy football points in their first three games. While Scary Terry McLaurin is the most likely player to make it eight, Paul Richardson is the most likely wide receiver to make it nine this weekend.

Week Four WR Sleeper:
Preston Williams at L.A. Chargers (5% Owned)

That’s right, I am advocating a piece of the Miami offense. I don’t feel good about it either. Let’s be clear here, this is a PPR-league desperation play only. Preston Williams has been the only player worth a hill of beans in their last two games, posting 131 yards on 18 targets against New England and Dallas. The Chargers are middle-of-the-road against opposing wide receivers but allowed 89 yards to Kenny Stills last week, 117 yards and a score to Kenny Golladay in week two, and T.Y. Hilton threw In a couple of scores week one. Who knows, maybe Miami ends its 2.5 game touchdown drought?
