It would have been good to know who was going to go off last week in fantasy football. If you did, perhaps you would have won your league. Or maybe you would have won a million dollars like this guy at a site like Draft Kings. If you called Joe Flacco throwing five first half touchdowns, perhaps you did. If you knew Mohamed Sanu was going to go nuts and Tom Brady was going to continue his solid run, maybe you did well there, too.
Knowing those sleepers can be key. Either you see them rot on your bench, get burned by them when they’re used against you or you somehow have the guts to toss them in your starting lineup and go for broke. You probably shouldn’t do that with every single sleeper or even do it every single week, but sometimes the role and/or matchup is just too good to pass up.
There’s more of that as we head into week seven. You can take a look at my week 7 fantasy football rankings for the jist, but this cool tool via FantasyPros.com sheds some light on my best value picks and how that value translates to Draft Kings. Even if you don’t play on daily sites or DK specifically, though, you can use these week 7 fantasy sleepers to your advantage.
Of course, like any fantasy tool, there can at times be some hiccups. Most of these guys I’m all for, but please keep in mind that I’m actually not overly high on Brandon Bolden, Lorenzo Taliaferro or the Titans/Redskins defense. I think those guys are fine and have good matchups, but I prefer their teammates – Shane Vereen and Justin Forsett. The rest I’m cool with, though. Good luck in week 7!
