Jackie Battle Is Your Fantasy Football Sleeper Of The Week

The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders meet in Oakland today and a two-game winning streak in Kansas City means the fantasy football folks actually care about the Chiefs again. We're talking about fantasy football sleepers and that topic is very relevant in Kansas City.

The loss of Jamaal Charles has created more opportunities in the Chiefs backfield and in Week 5 RB Jackie Battle stepped up causing a bit of a stir in the fantasy football world.

For that, Battle has earned the title of fantasy football sleeper of the week for the Chiefs. I would put a poll up here asking who the sleeper of the week is but the answer's so obvious we don't need one.

And on the topic of fantasy football, this is a reminder to never take advice from me in fake football. I'm firmly entrenched as the worst team in my league after drafting Jamaal Charles (out for the year) and Peyton Hillis (missed two games already).
