Week 4: Sleepers of the Week

These lesser-known players deserve to start this week due to matchup or other circumstances. This week's picks include Andy Dalton, Kevin Kolb, Christian Ponder, Andre Brown, and Mikel Leshoure.

Brandon LaFell and the Carolina Panthers travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in week four. LaFell got off to a good start to the season with back to back solid games over the first two weeks, before turning in a one catch for 27 yard game in a week three loss to the New York Giants. LaFell was being started in a majority of fantasy leagues last week, but I suspect that this number will fall greatly this week. That may be a mistake, as I expect LaFell to bounce back in what could be a high scoring affair this week in Atlanta. The Falcons' defensive game plan will likely focus around stopping Steve Smith, giving LaFell the opportunity to exploit man to man coverage throughout the game. Fantasy owners can start Brandon LaFell as a WR 3 or Flex play this week and can expect 75 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Lance Moore and the 0-3 New Orleans Saints travel to Green Bay to face the Packers in week four. Moore is coming off a good game in which he caught four passes for 70 yards and a touchdown in a shocking loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Moore is very hit or miss on a week to week basis, but should put up another good game against the Packers this week. This weeks game should be a high scoring affair, with both offenses looking to get rolling. Fantasy owners should have no qualms starting Moore as a WR 3 or Flex play and can expect 80 receiving yards and a touchdown from the Saints number two wide receiver.
