10 Fantasy Football Sleepers for Week 5

Bye weeks got you in a rut? Why not try one of these 10 sleepers this week?

The bye week can be the best friend for the fantasy football sleeper. As the season progresses and four or even six teams sit out, sleepers get more spotlight.

Week 5 is a pretty light week for byes even though four teams have them. The Panthers, Jets, Dolphins, and Vikings don't exactly boast many players who are on championship-caliber fantasy football squads, so your team might be bye week free.

Then again, you could be trusting Cam Newton or Greg Olsen. Maybe you were relying on Chris Ivory to put up another big game.

If that's the case -- or if you're still dealing with an injury or thin roster -- then consider these 10 players who have good matchups in Week 5.
