There are already a slew of injury concerns and some bad matchups, so we may need a sleeper or two. Here are five players I expect to have solid fantasy days who may be slightly off your radar:
1. Alexander Mattison, RB, Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook is a bit banged up. I like 10-plus touches this week for Mr. Mattison.
2. Trey Sermon RB, San Francisco 49ers
Let’s try this again. Elijah Mitchell is banged up and Sermon should clear concussion protocol.
3. Austin Hooper, TE, Cleveland Browns

4. Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants
Do we trust Danny Dimes? I know it’s scary, but the Atlanta defense isn’t, so …
5. Will Fuller, WR, Miami Dolphins
It never seems to matter who the quarterback is. When he plays, he scores …
Sleeper defense: Arizona
Need a kicker? Daniel Carlson is on a roll … ride the wave.
