Week 4 is here and with it is the dreaded early byes. Have a flex in need of a potential home run? Let’s look at 10 potential sleepers at WR.
Last week saw the rise of Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd hit next levels. Boyd and Ridley were featured on this sleepers list in past weeks and are becoming integral pieces for their offenses.
This week we’ll look at teams in need of production in their depth. Let’s look at 10 wide receivers who could spell their top targets for big afternoons this weekend.
No. 10 Ray-Ray McCloud III vs Green Bay
As former Clemson products go we haven’t seen the best of any of the recent group of wide receivers. We are seeing the resurgence of Sammy Watkins who finished a decent 2017-18 campaign and now in Kansas City is playing an important role in Andy Reid’s offense.
Could McCloud III become an important piece for Josh Allen and that seemingly revamped Buffalo offense? It hasn’t been an easy year to start for Buffalo. Getting absolutely manhandled in your first two games, having to switch from your starter to Allen at halftime in Week 1 because of how bad he was, it’s been a big struggle.
It doesn’t get easier after the dominant win at Minnesota last week though. Buffalo goes from Minnesota to Green Bay and if they’re going to pull off two insane wins in a row, they’ll need help from everyone.
McCloud is a deep sleeper but in the return game he’s seemingly got the job returning punts. Recently back from that knee injury, he could surprise you. It’s a high-risk, medium-reward play in Week 4.
