Last week, I was very surprised at how well my sleeper picks actually did. Adrian Peterson and Carlos Hyde both ran for over 100 yards last week (Hyde had a touchdown as well). Curtis Samuel had two touchdowns. Even Devante Parker ended up with his first touchdown of the season. While I don’t know if I can be that accurate again this week, I will be going through my sleepers for Week 7 to help give you an edge in your fantasy matchups.
Opponent: Miami Dolphins
Devin Singletary has been out for the past three Bills’ games and then had their bye week last week. He is set to join the squad this week in a very favorable matchup against the Dolphins. The Dolphins have averaged 169.6 rushing yards to opposing teams on average. While a lot of that will probably be going to Frank Gore, his receiving value will come in handy. The Dolphins are also terrible at covering the pass. With the 36 points per game that the Dolphins give up, it is highly likely that Singletary can find the endzone and get a lot of yards.
Opponent: Arizona Cardinals
Golden Tate is set up to get a ton of action this week. The Cardinals have given up the third-most yards through the air and have given up the most passing touchdowns. The return of Saquon Barkley will take away some of his market share, but Tate will likely be the short-yardage option with a lot of targets. In PPR leagues, this will be very valuable because the Giants should be busy in the passing game. With how fast the Cardinals play, the Giants should be getting tons of opportunities to score in what should be a high-scoring affair.
Opponent: Dallas Cowboys
Miles Sanders led the Eagles in receiving last week and also found his first touchdown as a pro. The Eagles are starting to figure out where Sanders excels and that is in the passing game which is very beneficial in PPR leagues. I do not think they will completely eliminate him from getting rushing touches, but I expect Sanders to start getting used more on the field. The Cowboys have let up 7 touchdowns to running backs on the ground which is tied for the most in the NFL, so I expect Jordan Howard and Sanders to be busy in the red zone with Sanders’ receiving value giving him the edge.
Opponent: Indianapolis Colts
Darren Fells has recently emerged as the top tight end target for the Texans and his workload shouldn’t diminish this week. The Colts have allowed the third-most fantasy points to tight ends this year with an average of 66.8 yards per game and 3 total touchdowns in their 5 games. Last week, Fells had a season-high 6 receptions for 69 yards which he could easily replicate this week if not more. If he keeps up this kind of workload, he could turn out to be a viable starter each week, but this week will give a good indicator of that.
Opponent: Washington Redskins
Despite this great matchup against the Redskins, Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t really projected very high this week. I expect him to blow this out of the water. He hasn’t been a top fantasy option because that is not what the 49ers are using him for, but he should be getting multiple touchdowns this week against a team that has allowed the second-most touchdowns in the league at 14. He most likely won’t throw for over 300 yards since that is not the kind of quarterback he is, but his touchdown upside this week makes him a good sleeper this week.
