Finding a fantasy football sleeper is crucial, especially with the postseason approaching. These guys have upside to outperform their rank this week.
With the wide receiver position being the deepest in fantasy football, it’s much more difficult to find sleeper plays on any given week. However, by looking at matchups and increased volume opportunities, it’s possible to find those guys.
Let’s take a look at a few potential sleepers that can outperform their ranking this week.
10 fantasy football wide receiver sleepers for Week 14
10. Jamison Crowder, New York Jets
Jamison Crowder has taken a clear backseat to Elijah Moore in the Jets’ offense, but he still managed a four catch, 62 yard game last week against Philadelphia. With Moore dealing with injury this week and missing practice, there’s a chance Crowder steps into a high-volume role against New Orleans.
The Saints have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season, and seem to get gauged every week in the passing game. Whether Moore plays or not, Crowder should see a steady dose of targets due to the Jets likely playing from behind. He’s a WR3 in PPR leagues this week.
9. Marquez Callaway, New Orleans Saints
Marquez Callaway has not been the fantasy stud he had the potential to be this season, but he’s still seen four or more targets in all but two games this year. He has been the Saints’ number one wideout, albeit in a very low-volume passing game.
This week, Callaway gets the Jets, who have the fourth-worst secondary in the league, so the matchup is there for Callaway if he can get the volume and production to exploit it. He’s a low-floor flex play in PPR leagues, but may just be a touchdown away from a fantasy relevant day.
