With ten weeks in the books, it really feels like we’ve gone through four or five seasons worth of frustration and heartbreak. Let’s keep this FUN train rolling towards our fantasy football playoffs with a look ahead at week eleven’s wide receiver sleeper list. To make the wide receiver sleeper list, a player must be unrostered in at least 50% of Yahoo! leagues. For all you “oh this guy is available in my league”/”must be nice to get these guys off the wire”/”I wanna play in your league” guys, I include one player on the wide receiver sleeper list unrostered in at least 90% of Yahoo! leagues.
Wide Receiver Sleeper: Michael Gallup at Minnesota (46% rostered)
Michael Gallup sort of disappeared off of the face of the earth for a while there. He topped 4 fantasy points just once in October. The calendar turned to November, and while he didn’t exactly blow the doors off the hinges in the last couple of games, he’s come back to life. He has nineteen targets in his last two games, which he’s turned into ten catches. He hasn’t done a whole lot with those catches, but he was getting targets from Garrett Gilbert and Ben DiNucci. Andy Dalton is back, and Michael Gallup’s targets should continue, while his quality of target increases. The Cowboys get Minnesota this week, who give up the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers.
Wide Receiver Sleeper: Jalen Reagor at Cleveland (25% rostered)
Reagor missed five weeks with a thumb/hand injury, and has 13 targets in his two games since returning from that malady. He’s notched seven catches, a touchdown, and 63 yards in that timeframe. While the yardage isn’t that intriguing, he’s notched at least 40 yards in three of four games this season. I would call the 2020 first-round pick on the come up. You can snag him ahead of the waiver wire if you’d like, and you don’t have to start him. If you do start him, he has a great matchup. The Browns basically rely on the weather to play defense for them, allowing just one WR over ten points in the last two weeks in monsoon conditions. They allowed multiple WRs to have double-digit fantasy point days against them in HPPR in their last two good-weather games.
Deep League Wide Receiver Sleeper: Cam Sims versus Cincinnati (0% rostered)
Alex Smith has back-to-back 300+ yard passing games, and Cam Sims has back-to-back fantasy football relevant weeks. The Football Team pulled him from the depths of the WR depth chart to post 164 yards on seven catches in the last two games. He’s averaging 20.5 yards per reception, with a ridiculous 9.3 yards coming after the catch per reception. He isn’t the best WR out there, but he’s very shifty and can take any pass a long way. This week, he gets a Bengals squad that can’t stop a runny nose. Cincy allows the seventh-most fantasy points to WRs, including allowing three WRs over 18 fantasy points in HPPR last week.
Additional Wide Receiver Sleeper Options:
Tim Patrick v MIA (23%), Laviska Shenault v PIT (19%), Josh Reynolds @TB (7%)
