Week 5 of the fantasy Football season will be filled with plenty of pitfalls. A red hot Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are about to meet a brick wall of a Broncos defense. Players on the waiver wire are suddenly turning into surefire starters. And there are plenty of players who could be acquired in trades that will help fantasy teams both now and in the future. This article will take a look at a few fantasy sleepers that nobody is talking about for week 5.

1. Travis Benjamin.

The Chargers played the Saints last week in a game that was expected to be high scoring. Benjamin, who had delivered some big games in previous weeks, was expected to benefit.

Instead the targets went to Dontrelle Inman, who finished the game with 120 receiving yards. Bet thatthe trend will reverse in week 5 and watch Benjamin rack up yardage against the Oakland Raiders, one of theweakest defenses in the NFL.

2. Brian Hoyer.

If you need to spot start a quarterback, this is definitely the week to do it as Hoyer goes up against the Colts. The Colts have been one of the worst defenses in football and still have basically no secondary. Hoyer isn't a great quarterback, but he will be a great fantasy option forweek 5thanks to his fortuitous matchup.

3. Carson Wentz.

Another quarterback who could put up even more production than Hoyer in week 5 is Carson Wentz. The Eagles rookie hasn't thrown a pick yet and deserves a lot of credit for the Eagles 3-0 start.

Wentz also gets a rather easy matchup against a Lions defense that has allowed the second most points to opposing fantasy quarterbacks.

4. Bills D/ST.

The third highest scoringfantasy defense this season is actually the Buffalo Bills. They've managed to rebound from a weak performance against the Jets in week 2 and have compiled two straight double digit fantasy performances.

In week 5, the Bills will get to play a Rams team that doesn't have a much of an offense and is led by a very conservative quarterback in Case Keenum.

5. Bilal Powell.

Matt Forte looked like a workhouse for the first two weeks of the season, but Powell has slowly started to take work away from him. Last season, Powell played an integral role for the Jets as a pass catching back.

Forte just got hurt and will likely be limited in week 5, opening up more opportunities for Powell against the Steelers. The game script will likely also call for a lot of passes, something that will help Powell reach an even higher fantasy value.
