Identifying sleepers is paramount in fantasy football, as the NFL's premier players typically perform at a similar level each week. Thus, it's the guys who round out your roster who oftentimes decide whether you flounder, or bask in victorious glory.
Many fantasy football owners are in a tough spot as we head into Week 6 of the 2016 NFL season. Injuries are piling up in the NFL, and the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a bye week, which waters down the player pool.
While it's undoubtedly difficult to overcome losing a starter, it's not impossible. With that in mind, here's a look at five potential fantasy football sleepers for Week 6.
Cameron Meredith, WR - Chicago Bears
Cameron Meredith has become a name that many fantasy football aficionados are interested in of late following the injury to Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White.
According to ESPN, Meredith was Chicago's most targeted receiver in Week 5 (12 targets) against the Indianapolis Colts. And the NFL sophomore made the most of his increased role, tallying nine receptions for 130 yards and one TD.
