10 Fantasy Football Sleepers for Week 3

Week 2 is in the books, and we’re going to have a whole new crop of potential sleepers moving into Week 3. Between inconsistent performance from big name players, injuries, and the fact that it seems NFL star players can’t avoid beating family members, there are a lot of new names that are getting a shot out there.

Going into Week 3 our friends at numberFire.com have taken a look at some players with good sleeper potential. Good luck rolling the dice!

There have been some unknown heroes who have impacted the first two weeks of the NFL season, and there are going to be some of these waiver-wire wonders and end-of-the-bench enigmas who can step up and have big games in any given week.

Prognosticating is hard, but there are some enticing matchups to be had for some of these guys, and I’ve found 10 who are owned in, roughly, 50% of ESPN leagues or fewer who can have a big Week 3 and help a free roster spot into points on your roster.

Let’s take a look.
