8 Fantasy Football Sleepers for Week 5

Bye weeks are upon us, meaning we're more limited in our fantasy options every week.

There's no longer as much space on your bench to stash speculative players, and you'll often be needing to find guys you can plug in and start for a week or two. That can come in the form of players with high floors who, while not especially exciting plays, you can count on to at least put up a few points and avoid taking a goose egg, or in the form of more volatile high-upside players, who do risk giving you that zero, but who also have the kind of ceiling that can replicate the production from the starter you have on bye week.

And that's saying nothing of the fact that injuries continue to pile up around the league. If you were a Dalvin Cook or Chris Carson owner, you may also be on the lookout for a replacement that you can hope sticks on your roster long-term.

Whatever the case may be, here are eight players flying under the radar that you should be targeting in fantasy football this week.
