If you’re in need of a running back to provide some support for your fantasy football lineup, check out adding one of these running back sleepers.

Throughout your fantasy season, FanSided provides this weekly strategy guide detailing 10 sleeper running back picks for your last-minute fantasy needs. The term sleeper describes a player that is overlooked by fantasy owners, not coveted, or generally not expected to pique your attention.

Sleepers, as part of this reference tool, are players that could meet some or all of the following criteria. First, the player may merely exceed expectations. He may be a player that is projected to perform in a mediocre manner, but we have him forecasted to do fare better. Next, the player may not even be rostered in some leagues. Therefore, that player is accumulating points for nobody in your league and is destined to inspire a mad dash by owners to the waiver wire for his services.

Notable hits for sleepers last week in this analysis included Antonio Gibson, Devonta Freeman, Chase Edmonds, and Mike Davis. Two of the selections did not play because of COVID reschedulings.  Overall, these players were not heavily sought after in 2020 fantasy drafts, but they did produce a profitable Week 5 output.

So, let’s find out who could surprise the masses during Week 6.

**Please note: The selection of these 10 sleepers is assessed from a 10-team, PPR league perspective.
