We here at Detroit Jock City are going to quickly run you through our top fantasy football sleepers for week 5.

5. WR Odell Beckham Jr. (NYG)

Odell Beckham Jr. is finally set to make his debut following a lengthy recovery from a nagging hamstring injury. Beckham reportedly had a good week at New York Giants practice, and should transition nicely into the Eli Manning lead offense.

Manning and the rest of the Giants offense appear to have fixed their early season jitters and have been gaining momentum after making easy work of the Washington Redskins last Thursday. This week they have a favorable match-up with the Atlanta Falcons who rank a dismal 30th in the NFL against the pass.

Keep a close eye on Beckham as game time approaches on Sunday. If he starts for the Giants, you may want to give him a shot also.
