Week 1: NFL Fantasy Sleepers to Watch Out For

The NFL regular season is finally upon us and that also means NFL fantasy is back. There are plenty of players to watch out for and some that will surprise many this upcoming season. Let’s get into some potential sleepers in the first week of fantasy football.

Michael Pittman Jr., WR vs Texans

He’s got a great matchup against a Houston secondary that was pretty bad last year. They ranked 10th most in passing yards allowed. Pittman Jr. will finally get some consistency at quarterback with Matt Ryan at the helm. He’s sure to get many catches and looks on the outside and even cutting on the inside. Watch out for Pittman to grab a touchdown or two vs the Texans.

Projected Stats: 6 receptions, 104 yards receiving, 1 touchdown [22.4 PTS]

Hayden Hurst, TE vs Steelers

Joe Burrow has a new tight end and one that’s better than he’s had before. Hurst has exceptional receiving skills that has kind of fell under the radar. Expect Hurst to get tons of looks in the red-zone all season and especially vs the Steelers.

Projected Stats: 3 receptions, 54 yards, 1 touchdown [14.4 PTS]

Jakobi Meyers, WR vs Dolphins

Meyers is the #1 receiver for the Patriots and seems to be only one I have much confidence in. Devante Parker has always been injury prone, so kind of scared to take a look at him right now, but Meyers is someone to definitely start this game vs the Dolphins. This will be a game that will be won through the air.

Projected Stats: 5 receptions, 87 yards, 1 touchdown [19.7 PTS]

Antonio Gibson, RB vs Jaguars

The Colts last year ran the ball a lot when they had Carson Wentz at quarterback, expect the Commanders to do the same. Gibson will get plenty of work and I expect him to have a solid game vs the Jaguars. He will be utilized a lot between downs and also in the red-zone/goal-line situations.

Projected Stats: 97 rushing yards, 2 receptions, 13 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns [25.0 PTS]
