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 7 of the 2016 NFL season. Injuries are piling up in the NFL, and the Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys have a bye, 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 7.
Torrey Smith, WR - San Francisco 49ers
Torrey Smith wasn't much of a factor in fantasy football through the first five weeks of the 2016 NFL season, tallying just nine receptions for 106 yards and one TD while the San Francisco 49ers were starting Blaine Gabbert under center.
In Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills, the 49ers started Colin Kaepernick, and Smith was finally relevant once again. Torrey finished the game with three receptions for 76 yards and one TD to the delight of fantasy owners worldwide.
