With only three late games on Sunday, finding those fantasy football sleepers can be extremely difficult.
Fortunately, we have some key sleepers worth a start in Week 8 because of some favorable matchups. Take running back Willis McGahee of the Denver Broncos, for example.
Denver is hosting Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, a team that presents an incredible offensive attack. Well, McGahee is a great fantasy option because:
1. New Orleans fields a horrendous defense, and
2. The Broncos significantly increase their odds of winning by keeping Brees off the field.
So how can Denver reduce the Saints' possessions to minimize the damage from Brees? Run the football, period.
To that end, let's check out Willis and other vital sleepers for Sunday's late fantasy football action.
