Fantasy Football: NFL Fantasy Sleepers For Week 6

With the Arizona Cardinals taking their bye this week, we will finally get a Sunday in which we are not screaming at our televisions. That said, it's a bit hard to give you some fantasy implications for the Cardinals when they won't be playing.

So for this week, I thought I would give you some fantasy sleepers from around the league. These four players are bound to make some sort of an impact for their respective teams, so if they are available on the waiver wire or in free agency in your league, you may consider adding them to your team. 

Earnest Graham:

Legarrette Blount has sustained an MCL injury and because of that, Graham will be getting the majority of snaps from the tailback position. The Buccaneers play the Saints this week and they have surrendered the 7th most points to backs this season so far. Graham is a powerful veteran runner, so expect him to see some goal line touches as well. He is a must start if available in your league. 

Ryan Torain:

Many people did not add Torain to their league because they thought that Tim Hightower would be getting the majority of snaps with the Redskins. Mike Shanahan decided that he was tired of seeing Hightower slip all over the field, so Torain became the primary back. Now, the 'Skins will host the Eagles this Sunday and as every sports news source has documented, Philly can't stop the run. In fact, Philadelphia has given up the most points to running backs of any team this season. 

George Wilson:

For those of you in IDP leagues, George Wilson is becoming a fantasy stud. As the safety for the Buffalo Bills, Wilson has collected three interceptions and one forced fumble so far this season. Add in all of the tackles made and even the two tackles for loss and you have a complete defensive back that will provide plenty of points for you. 

James Anderson:

Anderson and the Carolina Panthers will take on the division foe Falcons this weekend. Atlanta will undoubtedly hand the ball off to Michael Turner plenty of times and Anderson just happens to be the best run stuffer that the Panthers have. He leads the team in tackles and he just had ten of them against the New Orleans Saints in his last game. With both Jon Beason and Thomas Davis out for the year, Anderson could be a great option for the rest of the season.
