Fantasy Football: New York Jets vs Pittsburgh Steelers Sleepers


In a week 5 NFL tilt, the New York Jets travel to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are coming off of a strong performance against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. Meanwhile, the Jets are trying to figure out what is going wrong. When it comes to your fantasy football team, there are plenty of options on both teams. However, some options may be better than others. Here is a sleeper from each team to help get you through the week.

New York Jets

With the more recent performances of the Jets offense, it may be hard for you to start anyone from their team. However, depending on the size of your league and players on a bye, you may not have a choice. One player, you may want to look at is WR Quincy Enunwa. He has had big games previously in 2016. But what about the recent play of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, you ask? We all know he is streaky and is in a bad streak right now.


This cannot last forever. Besides, we are not talking about a season long pick. We are a looking at a one-week sleeper pick. Enunwa should be able to produce on a Steelers secondary that will, more than likely, use a rookie CB in Artie Burns to cover Enunwa. If you need a one week cover in your fantasy football league, due to injury or bye, look at WR Quincy Enunwa.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers for the second straight week are playing a tough secondary. However, with the question mark of Darrelle Revis’s playing status, the Steelers may be licking their chops. No matter who is in coverage, we know that the primary focus will be Antonio Brown. One player that could gain from this is WR Sammie Coates. Coates has seen his playing time increase lately with injuries to Markus Wheaton and Eli Rogers. With all the focus on AB, Coates could see an increase in targets. That increase only benefits your fantasy football team. Take a flyer on WR Sammie Coates.

The Steelers are looking to maintain pace in the strong AFC North while the Jets are hoping to get back on the winning track. No matter what your choice, either one or both of these players could help you fantasy football team. Keep an eye on them as you set your lineup for Sunday.
