Fantasy Football Week 8 Sleepers: Kansas City Chiefs Edition

New, comments

Make sure you check out SB Nation's Fantasy Football hub for a much more comprehensive Week 8 fantasy football outlook. 

Fantasy football sleepers picks are harder and harder to come by each week in the NFL. More players are figured out by fans as the weeks go by and many of the backup-to-starter picks have already been picked up.

When talking about which Kansas City Chiefs players could be sleeper picks this week, that's a tough question. I don't think you can put any Chiefs' player up there in the top five of sleeper picks this week. But if you have to have a KC player on your roster this week, more than likely rookie WR Jonathan Baldwin is available in your league. 

I'm not predicting that Jonathan Baldwin will score 20+ fantasy points against the San Diego Chargers this week. But I do think Baldwin could sneak out of the slot for a couple of catches and potentially a short touchdown. Dwayne Bowe has owned the Chargers in recent years so expect Baldwin to get the least of the coverage from San Diego. Steve Breaston's recent upswing only helps Baldwin's sleeper case. 

Anyone else on the Chiefs roster you see worth picking up this week? Too bad you can't sign CB Brandon Flowers to an offensive spot.
