Bound To Go Bonkers in Week 8

Top 5 Fantasy Football Daily League Sleepers (Fanduel)


Eddie Lacy - RB, Green Bay Packers

Valued at $6,800 and facing the Minnesota Vikings 31st-ranked defense in Week 8, there is a very good chance that Green Bay’s franchise running back will be getting a ton of work both this week and moving forward, with the Packers decimated wide receiver corp looking permanently crippled.  With those factors in play, it’s no wonder Lacey is spearheading our list of fantasy football daily league sleepers that are bound to go bonkers in Week 8.  Keep on eye on him when setting your Fanduel lineups this weekend.


Mike James - RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

With Doug Martin done for the season, rookie running back Mike James is firmly in place for the atrocious Buccaneers ground attack and will be “all systems go” for Tampa’s Week 8 matchup.  Although he is facing the tough Panthers defense, he is priced at only $5,000 on Fanduel and can serve as a super-deep sleeper for you shrewd daily league fantasy football players.

Antonio Brown - Pittsburgh

Antonio Brown - WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

Going up against Oakland in Week 8, daily league fantasy football players will want to strongly consider Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown as a sleeper option.  Based on his affordable price tag of only $6,700, we think he can serve as a great Fanduel option as a number 2 or number 3 wide receiver.


Denarius Moore - WR, Oakland Raiders

Let’s go to the other side of the ball for this Week 8 showdown between the Steelers and Raiders and talk about sleeper wide receiver Denarius Moore.  We know you probably hate him, but he is primed to go bonkers this week against the Steelers surprisingly mediocre defense.  For only $5,400 Fanduel dollars, you can easily make a case for using him as a number 3 wide receiver option.


Jeremy Kerley - WR, New York Jets

After showing off the good hands this past week, this Jets' wide receiver is turning himself into a must start target monster.  Heading into his Week 8 matchup against the Bengals, he is looking like a great sleeper wide receiver for the very affordable $5,300 Fanduel price tag.
