    It can be hard to find sleepers each week. Let’s take a look at some players who could produce in the offensive sleepers Week 5 edition!

    If there is a last-minute injury, you may need to scramble to find a player to substitute. That is when this weekly article on offensive sleepers comes in handy. I use Sleeper's rostered percentage before the Thursday night game to look for offensive sleepers and use anyone under 35% owned. Check out the offensive sleepers Week 5 edition!

    In Week 4 I bounced back with my picks getting two out of four sleepers vastly outproduced their projected ranking.


    Kadarius Toney, WR, NY Giants - 27.0% Rostered

    The Giants are struggling with injuries and WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. So they are both likely out. Kadarius Toney had a slow start to the season. However, in the win vs the Saints, he had a strong game and caught 6 of 9 targets for 78 yards. Toney in the slot should continue to see targets from Daniel Jones against the Cowboys this week.

    Brandon Bolden, RB, NE Patriots - 15.0% Rostered

    James White's injury has caused an open role for the Patriot's backfield. J.J. Taylor had a fumble in the game against the Buccanneers. Because of that, Brandon Bolden was solely in the pass-catching RB role. He caught all 6 targets for 51 yards and Bolden has held this role before. In 2019, Bolden had 3 games with over 50 receiving yards.

    Anthony Firkser, TE, Tennessee Titans - 11.0% Rostered

    Anthony Firkser has only played two games so far this season but against the Jets, he had five targets. A.J. Brown and Julio Jones should be back this week (Julio recently ruled out) but who knows how their hamstrings will hold up. The Titans face the Jaguars this week and the Jaguars just allowed C.J. Uzomah 5 receptions for 95 yards and 2 TDs.

    Kalif Raymond, WR, Detroit Lions - 5.0% Rostered

    The Lions have been playing from behind most of the season and are 6th in passing percentage with throwing the ball over 64% of the time. Kalif Raymond is leading the WRs in targets so far this season and seems to be someone that Goff looks for. In the past 2 games, Raymond has scored 12.80 and 19.60 with 2 TDs.


    Those are my top offensive sleeper candidates going into the fifth week of the NFL season who are not highly rostered. With Covid protocols, you never know when someone is not going to be inactive on game day. These offensive sleepers could help you fill in your starting lineups for week five.
