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

With Jarvis Landry on IR, Hooper’s usage should tick up this week.

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.
