Week 15: 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 Jason Campbell, James Starks, Fozzy Whittaker, Jordan Todman, and Da'Rick Rogers.
Zach Ertz had a huge game at home against Arizona in Week 13, with five grabs for 68 yards and two TDs. Last week at home vs. Detroit he was only targeted once and failed to put up any fantasy points. I like his match-up against Minnesota this week and think that on the road he should be able to capitalize on his match-ups and provide you with some fantasy-relevant points as a flex in deep leagues. Minnesota has given up the third most fantasy points to TEs this season.
The Jacksonville defense was one to avoid at all costs even a few weeks ago. Now they appear to be on a roll. In Weeks 12-14, the Jax defense has created six turnovers, racked up eight sacks and only allowed an average of 18 points to opponents. This week they face a struggling Buffalo offense that is 4-9 and on the road again. Buffalo on the season has given up the seventh most fantasy points to defenses. This week look for Alan Ball, Paul Posluszny and company to make the Buffalo offense suffer once again.
