Week 14: Sleepers of the Week

These lesser-known players deserve to start this week due to matchup or other circumstances. This week's picks include Jake Locker, Russell Wilson, Jonathan Dwyer, Knowshon Moreno, and James Starks.

Josh Gordon and the Cleveland Browns return home to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in week 14. Gordon has made tremendous progress the past three weeks, catching 15 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown, including his first 100 yard performance in week 13. The rookie wide receiver seems to be clicking with Brandon Weeden, and the duo should continue to make noise over the last few weeks of the season. Gordon is available in more than a third of fantasy leagues, but he could serve as a solid WR 3 throughout the fantasy playoffs. Fantasy owners can start Josh Gordon this week and can expect him to catch five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs.

Golden Tate and the Seattle Seahawks return home to take on the Arizona Cardinals in week 14. Tate has been hot and cold this season, having a few good games mixed in with a bunch of terrible ones. Tate has seemingly picked it up as of late however, catching four touchdowns over the past four games -- including a 96 yard, one touchdown performance against the Bears in week 13. Tate and Russell Wilson have both made strides as the season has gone on, and both should be relevant during the fantasy playoffs. Tate is currently owned in just 57 percent of fantasy leagues, but should be picked up as a solid WR 3 for this week's game against Arizona. The Cardinals pass defense has been good this season, but I expect Tate to be able to make a big play or two for the Seahawks. Fantasy owners can start Golden Tate this week and can expect five receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown.
