“Holy cow!” That’s all I could think while watching week 5. For some reason, watching some of the truly awful teams in the league conjured images of Harry Caray and the Chicago Cubs. Holy cow, the Jets go into Atlanta and send Matty Ice to 1-4! Cam Newton is really delivering his 4th sub-standard performance already? The Jaguars really might go 0-16? With all the excitement around the Broncos, Colts, Seahawks and Saints, it’s easy to overlook some of the major disappointments so far this season. The D/ST Sleeper 5 certainly didn’t miss many last week, as we delivered our worst performance of the year, but just like the underachievers of the NFL, we still believe! We will bounce back and deliver once again.
There are some great D/ST match-ups this week, lead by a massive point spread, Jacksonville at Denver. We focus more on the more obscure. The 5 “sleeper” D/ST of the week. These 5 teams are ranked 16th or worse in standard scoring and are owned in standard ESPN leagues by 80% or less. Without further ado, here is the Top 5 Sleeper D/ST of week 6. Hopefully one of these 5 will lead your team to a holy cow week!
