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, Justin Hunter, and Rishard Matthews.

Leonard Hankerson has not gone off since Week 1 when he scored twice and grabbed 5 passes for 80 yards vs. Philadelphia. In Weeks 2-10 he has been mediocre at best as a wide out. The past two weeks he has increased his receptions and nabbed five balls for 55 and 61 yards respectively. Guess who he plays in Week 11? Yep, Philadelphia again and he is due for another solid outing with his targets and catches increasing. If you are in need of a PPR deep league wide out, Hankerson is your guy this week against a Philly defense that on the season has allowed the second most fantasy points to WRs.

Injury Status: Out - Knee

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.
