Week 3: Sleepers of the Week

These lesser-known players deserve to start this week due to matchup or other circumstances. This week's picks include Jay Cutler, Andrew Luck, Michael Bush, Mikel Leshoure, and Kenny Britt.

Denarious Moore and the Oakland Raiders return home to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week three. Moore returned from injury in week two against the Dolphins, and caught three passes for 67 yards before leaving the game in the third quarter with cramps. The young wide receiver is clearly the Raiders' top wide receiver, and once his conditioning picks up, he will be a good weekly start as a WR 3 in fantasy leagues. Moore should be fully healthy heading into this week's game, and with Carson Palmer looking good to start the season, Moore should only get better. Fantasy owners can start Denarious Moore this week and can expect 80 total yards and a touchdown.

Lance Moore and the New Orleans Saints return home to face the Kansas City Chiefs in week three. Moore is a high risk, high reward wide receiver in fantasy leagues each week, as he is prone to alternating big games with small ones. The 29 year old wide receiver turned in a 120 yard effort with a touchdown in week one, then disappeared for only 30 yards on two receptions in week two. The Chiefs defense allowed 35 points to a much weaker Buffalo Bills offense last week, and will not be able to stop the high powered Saints offense in week three. Fantasy owners looking for a high upside WR 3 or Flex play in week three can start Lance Moore and can expect 85 receiving yards and a touchdown.
