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 Michael Floyd.

Generally speaking, it is best to err on the side of caution in fantasy football. There's no reason to pursue risk because every player already carries with him varying amounts of it. When it comes to Harvin though, he is one player who is talented enough and underappreciated enough to roll the dice with. Despite returning from injury in Week 11 and only catching a single pass for 17 yards, Harvin is worth consideration for Week 13. Back in Week 11, Harvin played on just 37-percent of snaps. Looking ahead to Sunday, Seattle has had a full week to implement and tweak the offense to allow Harvin to be more involved. He should be the focal point of their passing attack in larger and larger portions as each week passes as he is the team's best receiver by a long shot. Get on him now to make the most of it.

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.
