Fantasy Football picks are here at Bankroll Sports this year, and we are going to try to make the most of your NFL props betting options at BoDog Sportsbook by giving you some of the best fantasy football sleepers in Week 5!

Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones vs. Oakland Raiders
Someone has to be able to catch some passes from QB Matt Schaub this week, right? That being said, the Oakland secondary just doesn’t feel complete anymore without DB Nnamdi Asomugha. Sure, WR Andre Johnson isn’t in the lineup, and sure, FB James Casey and TE Owen Daniels have been stealing the show, but with a full week of preparation, we tend to think that both Walter and Jones might make for great fantasy plays at home against Oakland. Remember with Jones that you’re also getting a great return man, and you might find yourself a hidden touchdown or two.

New England Patriots D/ST vs. New York Jets
Most of you have probably cut the Pats’ defense by now after its terrible start to the season. By standard league rules, you haven’t even averaged two points per game if you have started New England. That being said, the Jets allowed the Baltimore Ravens to score three times on defense last week. Don’t think for one second that Head Coach Bill Belichick wasn’t looking at that tape and smiling. The teams that have been able to throw the ball on New England have played well on the offensive line. New York doesn’t have that luxury. C Nick Mangold might be back in the fold this week, but if he isn’t or if he isn’t totally effective, don’t be shocked if the Pats come away with four or five sacks and a few turnovers in addition to keeping the Jets to a relatively low score.

Malcom Floyd vs. Denver Broncos
Someone has to get all of the passing yards from QB Philip Rivers, right? The Broncos have a dreadful pass defense, as demonstrated last week when QB Aaron Rodgers accounted for six total touchdowns against them. And, to make matters even more sneaky for Floyd this week, he has been the top receiver that has been practicing. Both WR Vincent Jackson and TE Antonio Gates have been on the sidelines. Jackson will probably play, but the added time for Floyd is going to be fantastic for him come game time, especially if Jackson does end up hobbled at any point. We wouldn’t be surprised if this were a game that Floyd, Mike Tolbert, and potentially even Randy McMichael end up finding the end zone.

Scott Chandler vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Another tight end scored a touchdown on the Eagles last week, as TE Vernon Davis found his way to the end zone as a part of the big comeback by the San Francisco 49ers. Now, it could be Chandler’s turn to shine again. Chandler only has 11 receptions on the year, but four of those have gone for TDs. We’re not as afraid of WRs Steve Johnson and David Nelson this week, though both will get their yards. If RB Fred Jackson doesn’t have one of these three touchdown days, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Chandler get his name in the box score with a touchdown strike.
