Week 17: 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 Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton, Edwin Baker, Joique Bell, and Robert Woods.


If you aren't already on the Crabtree bandwagon, hop aboard! It's warm and cozy up here. The former Texas Tech receiver has posted back-to-back double-digit scores (even in standard scoring). In those two games, he has 10 receptions for 147 yards and a score. The 49ers' passing game is still a bit lacking, but appears to be peaking at the right time of the year. The matchup isn't kind to Crabtree in Week 17 as he'll have to face Arizona's sixth-ranked defense against WRs; however, the Cards did look very vulnerable two weeks ago when the Titans' WRs torched them for 25 receptions, 298 yards and two TDs.


Fantasy owners scrambled to snag Ryan Griffin last week due to an injured Garrett Graham. Griffin is the only healthy TE left for Houston and he has looked pretty good in his last two games. Over that span, he has 11 receptions for 128 yards. Nothing to write home about, but enough to merit consideration as a sleeper. He will face a favorable matchup against Tennessee in Week 17 as their defense has allowed one TE TD in each of their last three contests. Griffin is a low-end TE1 this week.
