Week 3: Super Sleepers
If you play in a deep league - 16 teams plus or have return yardage points in play - Keshawn Martin should already be on your radar. He should also be someone to watch more broadly seeing as he's Andre Johnson's immediate replacement should the Texans go-to guy not play this week due to a concussion suffered in Week 2. Martin has averaged 125 yards per game in returns so far this season and last week he also contributed 37 yards on two receptions. The 5-foot-11 target has sure hands and caught both passes that came his direction last week. I suspect we will see him start to see some more action as the season progresses; he could be an interesting bench player in deep formats.
Considering the Redskins' struggles covering the TE position - or any position for that matter through two games - Joseph Fauria could be a sneaky play against Washington this week. Additionally, Brandon Pettigrew's fumble and penalties last week are of concern for the team and he has been a non-factor. We're talking truly deep leagues here, but if Fauria plays as a second TE or gets snaps ahead of Pettigrew, he could surprise this week.
Coby Fleener has been on the fantasy radar since he was reunited with his college QB - Andrew Luck - in Indianapolis. However, he has failed to produce the big numbers that some expected. Fleener was only targeted once in Week 1 and hauled that in for a measly seven yards. Last week vs. Miami, he grabbed half of his eight targets and recorded 69 yards and a score. I think Fleener and Luck will find their groove this season and have some joint productivity, especially since Dwayne Allen is now out of the mix with season-ending surgery in his future. This week's addition of Trent Richardson makes for an interesting backfield in Indy and provides Luck with greater opportunites in play-action. The match-up this week at San Francisco is not that appealing, but I think Fleener might be an option Luck utilizes in some tight situations.Injury Status: Injured Reserve
