Week 13: 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 Andy Dalton, Josh McCown, Shane Vereen, Chris Ogbonnaya, and Percy Harvin.

Floyd has 13 receptions for 297 yards and a TD in his last two games and heading into Week 13, this upcoming matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles is an excellent matchup for the former Notre Dame receiver. Something appears to have clicked for the second-year pass-catcher. He has 18 targets in his last two games and this expanded workload is what many fantasy experts were expecting all along. The Eagles are giving up the most fantasy points to opposing WRs. Even though Philly is coming off a bye, the pass defense has been an issue all season long. Floyd is a strong WR2 for Week 13.

The numbers have been modest for Anthony Fasano, but he enters Week 13 coming off back-to-back games with a touchdown. The Chiefs aren't afraid to throw it in the red zone as evidenced by Alex Smith's four passing TDs from within 10 yards in his last two games. Fasano is really on the cusp of becoming a legitimate TE2. It's been a crowded mess among the position group beyond the elites at the top though and finding value is difficult. This week does present a favorable matchup though. Denver is giving up the fifth-most fantasy points to TEs and most of it comes from receptions and yardage, not touchdowns. This indicates Fasano should see more targets and more open spaces against Denver's blitz-happy front seven.
