Week 12: 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 Eli Manning, Case Keenum, Chris Ivory, Rashad Jennings, and Rueben Randle.


Dobson continues to see his role expand from week-to-week. In New England's last two games, the rookie leads the team in percentage of snaps played amongst the Pats' receivers. He only caught four passes for 38 yards this past Sunday; however, he has seen at least seven targets in four of his last five contests. There are a lot of mouths to feed in New England, but when he eats, he will eat well. Dobson does have three TDs over his last three games. Forget about Julian Edelman and Kenbrell Thompkins, both guys have seen their playing time plummet with the return of Danny Amendola (and given Dobson's ascension to the top of the depth chart). Use Dobson as a flex in both PPR and standard leagues.


If your starting TE is on a bye or not playing very well of late, just go ahead and plug in Graham. He's been due for a decent game and he finally accomplished that feat last week against Oakland. He snagged seven receptions for 136 yards and a score. In Week 12, he has another fantastic matchup against Jacksonville. The Jags have allowed the second most fantasy points to TEs per game. This includes eight TDs on the season to go along with 59 receptions and 661 yards. Most recently, they allowed the still-under-the-radar Arizona TE Rob Housler to catch six passes for 70 yards. To be honest, if I could get that stat line every week from my TE, I'd take it. Graham still hasn't displayed excellent chemistry with Case Keenum, but hopefully that can come with time. For now, we can live with a juicy matchup and continue evaluating Graham on a week-to-week basis as a viable TE2 until he proves otherwise.
