Week 11: 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 Ben Roethlisberger, Ryan Tannehill, Andre Ellington, Jonathan Stewart, and DeAndre Hopkins.

Cooper has been red hot over his last two games, hauling in eight passes for 241 yards and five TDs. He clearly has a great rapport with QB Nick Foles. As long as Foles remains under center, Cooper is a high-upside WR2 and might actually find himself among fantasy's Top 10 WRs if this hot streak continues. If he's still available in your league (and his ownership numbers at Yahoo and ESPN are way too low), grab him immediately. His 19.8 yards per reception is the highest average for any receiver with 20 or more receptions as evidenced by his five receptions of 40-plus yards, which are tied for third-most in the league.

Working under the assumption that Jermaine Gresham will remain out in Week 11, Eifert is a great free agent addition. Last week, Gresham was out and Eifert saw 10 targets (although he only caught three of them for 55 yards). The bottom line is he never had so many targets in previous weeks and all those looks give him opportunities to make plays. The rookie has a bright future even if his value is currently limited. This will be Eifert's second game against Cleveland and he should have learned a lot since then, which he can apply this time around. As long as Gresham sits, Eifert has fringe TE1 upside at a minimum.
