TV:

It’s Friday, and not only does that mean we’re just two days away from all (or most of) the Week 6 NFL action, but it’s also time for our sleeper picks in the world of fantasy football. We’ve got the usual round of lesser-known players on tap for you this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers to see if anyone’s right for your team.

Storm Johnson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: Honestly, we’re not all that thrilled about Johnson this week, but deep-league owners will need to take what they can get here. With Toby Gerhart hurt and Denard Robinson not playing so well, Johnson will likely get a good amount of touches during the Jags’ game in Tennessee this Sunday.
That said, Johnson isn’t expected to be a huge breakthrough player, so temper your expectations. If he can manage to get into the end zone, however, he might be worth a look.

Fantasy Football 2014: Week 6 Sleeper Picks

USA TODAY Sports

Antone Smith, RB, Atlanta Falcons: Here’s an under-the-radar pickup we’ve been pretty high on this week. Smith has a grand total of 17 touches so far this season, and has managed to score on four of those. Even more impressive, he’s carrying a 16.3 yard average on each of those touches.
The Falcons have said they’re going to get Smith more involved in their offensive attack, so the potential for boom-or-bust numbers is here. If you’re starved for a running back, you might want to kick the tires on Smith as a sleeper pickup.

Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland Raiders: Let’s stick with the RB theme one more time here and check out McFadden. Lots of things have happened since the Raiders’ last game against Miami in Week 4. They’ve got a new coach (Tony Sparano) and McFadden has officially passed up Maurice Jones-Drew as the RB to have in Oakland.
With Sparano serving as the interim head coach, the Raiders are expected to rely a little more on the running game, which obviously will benefit McFadden’s fantasy numbers. He’s worth a start against the Chargers.

Mohamed Sanu, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: With A.J. Green going down in Wednesday’s practice, each of the Cincinnati receivers took a step up in value. Sanu is no different, as he’s probably the most promising WR add out there right now.
Even with Green, Sanu is a vital part of the Bengals offense, as he’s scored at least nine points in his last three straight. He’s a must-have in anything 10 teams and over.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, New York Giants: Speaking of must-adds, Beckham is pretty close to that designation himself. With the Giants finally getting things figured out on offense, and the soft matchup to come on Sunday (Philly), it’s a no-brainer starting Beckham--and pretty much every other Giants receiver. That includes Victor Cruz (obviously), Reuben Randle and maybe even Larry Donnell, too.
