Week 11: 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 Profiled players include Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bobby Rainey, Dennis Johnson, Leonard Hankerson, and Justin Hunter.


Rishard Matthews had a monster game with 11 receptions for 120 yards and two TDs in Week 10 while replacing Brandon Gibson in the slot. Ryan Tannehill obviously likes Matthews and feels safe sending the ball his direction early and often. Matthews is definitely a guy to grab and stash on your roster if he is available in your league; he could be a sneaky play in deep leagues if you are in need of a wide out in Week 11. San Diego's defense allows considerable points to wide outs and that puts Matthews on the WR3 or flex radar, considering his recent production is above and beyond that of his better-known counterparts -- Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace.


Green Bay's offense has been in a world of hurt this season with injuries. At the tight end position, Jermichael Finley has been void and Andrew Quarless has been on the fantasy radar. In deep leagues and in expert circles, the name Brandon Bostick gets thrown into the mix too. Last week Bostick grabbed three passes for 42 yards and a score. He has better mobility than Quarless and this week faces a suspect New York pass defense. Look for Bostick to have a presence again this week and put up some more solid numbers. He is way down the fantasy radar and could be a great play if you are in a jam.
