Week 3: Super Sleepers

While we're not projecting starting type stats for these players, they have good potential and could surprise. This week's picks include Andy Dalton, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Andre Brown, Daryl Richardson, and Danny Amendola.


One of the biggest questions coming out of week one's game against the Falcons was why Baldwin was barely used. In response Offensive Coordinator Brian Daboll said Baldwin wasn't ready week one, but he would have a bigger role when Kansas City headed to Buffalo in week two. Daboll's prediction was somewhat correct in that Baldwin did have a better game week two, pulling in 3 receptions for 62 yards. While these may not have been great numbers, if you factor in the Chiefs' offensive woes 62 yards receiving is not all that bad. This week Kansas City hosts a Saints team that has struggled to find itself. Over the first two games New Orleans' defense has allowed a league high 75 points (tied with the Chiefs by the way). This could easily turn into a shootout with both offenses posting big numbers. If this happens, Baldwin should be a nice place for fantasy owners.


When rookie quarterbacks are involved, fantasy owners need to be careful and considering starting Little is no exception to this rule. After an abysmal week one performance, Greg turned it around week two with 5 receptions for 57 yards with a touchdown. While these are not great numbers, they're definitely serviceable for owners looking for a flex starter and/or in ppr leagues. This weekend the Browns host a Bills team whose defense has allowed 5 passing touchdowns (second most in the league) through the first two games. Couple this with Wheeden's improved performance in week 2 and Little could be a nice start for owners this Sunday.
