Fantasy Football: Top Sleeper Wide Receivers To Play In Week 8 – Forbes

Six teams are on a bye this week.

Six!

But don’t panic! The depth at wide receiver this year opens up a nice group of fantasy football sleepers for us to target this week. Some familiar names, including one I hyped up last week, with some new faces in new places.

As always these are FantasyPros’ consensus half-PPR rankings, and I’m only allowed to select players from outside the top 36

Snaps. Targets. Matchup. The stars are aligning for Brandon LaFell this week.

On the season Indy has been a matchup to target for wide receivers, allowing the fifth-most points to opposing wide receivers and the most yards overall to the position. That was before the Colts lost their best defensive back, Malik Hooker, for the season in addition to top corner Rashaan Melvin to a concussion last week.
