If your looking for Fantasy Football PPR Sleepers for the week, this should help you as I have a weekly Post of which you will be able to compete in most daily fantasy leagues. Always check your league rules or setting for the actual scoring including PPR setup.
I had a lot of success in daily fantasy leagues in week 3 of the regular season, in part to my own lineup advice from this post for that week:
So I will do my very best to duplicate those efforts at the bottom of this post for my lineup set for week 5 using the same format..
Which players this week might win you with if you want to win $2, $10, or even $100,000?
Well, theres no easy answer but here are some defnite ideas for rostering your salary cap team..
Maybe keep away from teams playing in hurricanes. Only the Miami Hurricanes could withstand the pressures of a storm of great magnitude. Lol.
Bell: RB Steelers:
As I have been saying in other posts and updates, one of the best and even safest players this week as well as others it Levon Bell. He split out wide last week so therefore, he cannot be stopped, since those big tackles in the middle can’t always account for him stepping out of the backfield, so for starting with a high priced player this one is worth it.
Derek Anderson: Panthers QB
Yes, I am using a backup QB this week in some leagues. Since Cameron Newton is out for the thu. night matchup, I have a good feeling this will at least be an interesting one. Some people/experts say Anderson is not one of the best pickups of the week, that there are better ones such as Carson Wetz, or Brian Hoyer. I believe Anderson has a good chance proven not only with his performance except for an interception at the end but also because Carolina does not have another reliable runner besides Cam.
Of course this is all assuming Cam will not play. If he does i have another decent value pick and that is:
Drew Stant0n: Stanton is another one that can provide you great value, instead of spending
So here goes the lineup: Week 5
QB: Anderson or Stanton
RB: Le’Veon Bell
RB: Melvin Gordon
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Emanual Sanders
WR: Jarvis Landry
TE: Zack Miller
K: J. Brown
FLEX: Amari Cooper or Theo Riddick or Jordan Howard
A little explanation here:
The vikings are obvious: how could you pass on the best defense for a good price and against a struggling Texans defense.
Zack Miller is not a bad pick along with Brian Hoyer if you even want to switch off to this duo.
Amari Cooper may be a question here for some, but I believe it depends on the actual reliability of M. Crabtree sustaining the success he’s had thus far. While I do believe Crabtree should get more credit, they will make an effort to get back to Cooper this week against a good matchup, they need to up his confidence.
Also Howard is a good flex volume player along with Landry and Sanders, no matter who the QB is, if you need a lottery sleeper. If you don’t feel comfortable with Sanders in that situation, you could go with Terrel Pryor I suppose for pure volume as long as he can withstand the Pats defense.
Marshall I believe will get easy targets against those smaller CB’s for the Steelers. Gordon is getting to be very consistent week to week.
