Week 14: 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, Brandon Bolden, Mike Gillislee, Andre Holmes, and LaVon Brazill.


Ace Sanders has now hauled in 60-plus yards in receptions each of his last three games. Sanders is a small in stature wide out who makes big plays. His 26 targets and 20 catches in Weeks 11-13 are appealing in PPR formats and the Jacksonville offensive schemes seem to be working Sanders into more and more snaps each week. Look for Sanders to continue to surprise defenses this week as he faces Houston on Thursday. I would expect nothing less than another 6-8 receptions for 50-60 yards and a sneaky score on a pass play out of the backfield.


The match-up for tight ends this week against Washington is just plain tasty. The Washington defense gives up the sixth most fantasy points on the seaosn to TEs --Anthony Fasano or Sean McGrath [if Fasano does not go] could have a field day in this match-up. Fasano was sidelined last week with a concussion and a slightly sprained knee, but has the potential to be cleared prior to this week's game. If Fasano's concussion protocols are not cleared or his knee is sore, Sean McGrath would be worth a look as well. Either TE in this scenario should be in for 6-7 targets with 4-5 receptions and the high probability of a score. Fasano has scored a TD in each of his last three outings and early in the season McGrath showed that he has the ability to put up some solid stats as well in Fasano's absence.
