The term “sleeper” can have totally different meanings to each and every person. Generally, it indicates an under-the-radar player that, due to favorable match-ups or circumstances, has a good chance at putting up quality numbers for the week.
Sometimes it might be someone who is in a committee that has a brief opportunity to shine, or a relatively unknown player buried on a team’s depth chart.
For Week 4, we’ll look at some sleepers that fall in both categories- guys you’ve been looking for an excuse to start and also some deeper sleeper types that could be of some help for those hurt by the introduction of those pesky bye weeks. If that’s you, don’t forget to consult our weekly waiver wire picks for further assistance.
Sunday Edit: Keller won’t play in this game. As stated, if you’re super desperate for a warm body at tight end or really deep flex-play, Jeff Cumberland warrants some consideration.
