Week 7 Sleepers and Streamers
J.D. McKissic (Washington Football Team)
If you’ve been tuning in lately, you’d see that McKissic is in my sleepers picks for the second consecutive week. I bring this up for two reasons: Firstly, I wanted to take a victory lap because life is short. McKissic was a PPR monster against the Chiefs this past week. Secondly, part of the reason McKissic out-snapped Antonio Gibson is because Gibson is still battling injuries, as he has all his career, really. Gibson is reportedly playing with a stress fracture in his shin, he’s still got turf toe, and his shoulder is also sprained (albeit lower grade). That seems like a cocktail to skip a few games to me, but even if Gibson plays, McKissic will have a bigger role. Defensive matchups don’t worry me as much, because McKissic provides a safe floor due to his passing work. J.D. McKissic is an RB2 this week.
Zach Ertz (Arizona Cardinals)
Ertz wanted to play in Philly forever, but life happens. Dallas Goedert is very good and it made sense for the Eagles to unleash him. However, this is the rare case when everybody wins in a trade. Eagles get better by adding defensive help, and Ertz goes to a better QB, more pass-happy offense, and will receive all the vacated targets (16 through four healthy games) that Maxx Williams had garnered (if not more, because Ertz is a better talent, in my opinion). Further, the Houston Texans are not a good football team, and Arizona will have the ability to light them up. Ertz is essentially a must-start, provided you don’t already have the Big 4 tight ends.
Michael Thomas (New Orleans Saints)
I don’t know if it’s fair to say that Thomas is a sleeper, considering he was a perennial All-Pro, but he’s been injured for quite some time and has become an after-thought in the post-Brees era (at least when Brees’ production fell off). Here are the facts: Jameis Winston loves to sling it. The Saints are best when Jameis slings it. Thomas immediately steps into the fray as the team’s top receiver. If you’ve been a Marquez Callaway fan, I regret to inform you, the show is over. Thomas is eligible to come off the IR this week, and when he does, he should be in your lineups. Even if they ease him into action, and don’t give him his full complement of snaps, he’s good for 8+ targets immediately.
