5 Sleepers to Start in Week 2

Week 2 is here and we have some sleepers for you! Read on to see some under the radar players that we are starting in Week 2.

Mark Andrews

This is going to be the last week Andrews is considered a sleeper. After an offseason where Ravens beat reporters repeatedly called him the best offensive player on the field, he showed his potential in an absolute dismantling of the Dolphins. Next up on the schedule? A matchup against a Cardinals team that just allowed T.J Hockenson to break the rookie record of yards in a debut. Andrews should feast like it’s Thanksgiving on Sunday and should be started in all formats. 

Josh Allen/John Brown

3CoSports is living by a simple rule this year: stream against the Giants. Dak Prescott looked like the second coming of Brett Favre against the Giants last week and Josh Allen has a chance to be equally as productive. If Josh Allen produces then its safe to assume his receivers will as well, with the most likely beneficiaries being John Brown and Cole Beasley. The Giants secondary is a joke, so take advantage of it and start your Bills.

Mecole Hardman

An obvious sleeper, Hardman could see an expanded role with Tyreek Hill out for the foreseeable future. Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce will get most of the defense’s attention, giving Hardman more room to operate. If he takes advantage of his opportunity and hits on a big play per game, he should be a serviceable flex option until Hill is back. Chances for that big play will be high vs the Raiders, who just allowed both Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders to go for over 100 yards. 

Chris Thompson

Chris Thompson is a deep sleeper that could pay off for those in PPR leagues. The Cowboys have allowed the second most receptions to RBs in 2018 and that continued in Week 1 as they allowed 7 receptions for 43 yards. With all of the passing work going to Chris Thompson, he is in a good spot to put up serviceable numbers from your flex spot, especially with the Redskins being expected to trail for most of the game.
