Michael Thomas seems like he is out for another week. Davante Adams and Kenny Golladay are on byes. If you are looking for some help at wide receiver, consider these Week 5 fantasy football streamers.
Week 5 Fantasy Football Streamers | WRs
Darius Slayton, NYG (vs DAL)
With Sterling Shepard on IR and Golden Tate’s skill being questioned after his matchup with Jalen Ramsey last week, the receiver who is available to catch passes from Daniel Jones is Darius Slayton. The Cowboys defense is horrible, which opens up the opportunity for Slayton to shine. Every game the Cowboys play seems to be a shootout and, without a strong running game, the Giants passing attack should be in full force. After a strong end to last year, there should be enough chemistry between Jones and Slayton to cash in for a big fantasy week, making him one of the top fantasy streamers.

Brandon Aiyuk, SF (vs MIA)
Brandon Aiyuk’s last two weeks have seen him combine for 27 points. With a great matchup this week against the Miami Dolphins, Aiyuk should continue to see targets as he continues to develop into a number one receiver. Aiyuk has also scored on a run play this year, so San Francisco is looking to use Aiyuk in a sort of a gadget role. San Francisco may also not unleash Deebo Samuel fully this week due to his injury, which opens the door for Aiyuk. Also with the release of Mohamed Sanu, there are less receivers to catch passes on the 49ers roster. With Jimmy Garoppolo possibly coming this week, look for Aiyuk to see more targets from a better quarterback.
N’Keal Harry, NE (vs DEN)
Owned in just over 50% of ESPN leagues, the patriots top outside receiver needs to be on your radar this week. N’Keal Harry still has those questions of when he is going to break out, and this could very well be the week. After catching a touchdown last week, Harry has had a full week to develop a rapport with Jarrett Stidham. With Harry’s size and athletic ability, Stidham should look Harry’s way for a couple of deep shots/jump balls this week. Especially against a struggling Denver secondary, all of the cards are on the table for Harry to have a big week, making him one of the best streamers at the position.
