In #Week 1, I hit on a majority of my sleepers, and had one that happened not to play in DeSean Jackson. For more on those choices, check out the article here. Now that it's #Week 2, it's time to take a look at a few more deep sleepers that could put up some solid numbers in the second week of the fantasy football season.

1. Raiders D/ST

It's no secret that the Raiders weren't well known for their defense last season. But in week 2 against the New York Jets, Oakland will have a matchup that should result in big fantasy points. The Bills defense managed to score 10 fantasy points in standard without a touchdown, and the Raiders output could be even better at home in week 2.

2. WRs Travis Benjamin/Tyrell Williams

It's no secret that I hate the Dolphins pass defense, and that should open up some holes in the receiving game for both Benjamin and Williams. Keenan Allen is a no brainer start, but these two aren't really on anybody's radar. I like both of these receivers to turn in solid weeks for both the Chargers and fantasy owners in week 2.

3. WR DeSean Jackson

He's not hurt and has a favorable matchup against a Bears team that somehow allowed Austin Hooper to run wide open in the middle of the field for a 88 yard touchdown. Enter the far more explosive and well rested Jackson, who will get plenty of deep balls from quarterback Jameis Winston. If you have Jackson, you should be starting him in week 2.

4. WR Allen Hurns

Without Robinson in the fold, Hurns quickly becomes the fantasy target for Blake Bortles.

That doesn't mean much, considering how much the Jaguars are planning to run the ball. But in week 2, the Jaguars play against a Titans team that had the best run defense in the NFL last year. That means Bortles will have no choice but to throw, and Hurns will be the beneficiary.

5. RB Kerwynn Williams

Without David Johnson, a huge number of touches are up for grabs in the Cardinals backfield. A majority of those will go to Williams, who had five carries for ten yards and a touchdown in week 1. For now, the indication is that he will be getting a majority of the touches, which makes him worth a fantasy start in week 2 against a Colts team that clearly isn't capable of doing much without Andrew Luck.

6. TE Coby Fleener

Nobody seems interested in the Saints tight end, even after he was hyped as the next coming of Jimmy Graham last season. In week 1, he scored a garbage time touchdown against the Vikings, but that doesn't paint the full picture. Fleener is clearly more adjusted to the Saints offense, and with Brandin Cooks out of the picture, Fleener could actually be the top ten tight end we thought he was last season. The Saints will have to throw in week 2 against the Patriots, and that makes Fleener a solid sleeper start. #Fantasy Sports
