Week 7: Sleepers of the Week

These lesser-known players deserve to start this week due to matchup or other circumstances. This week's picks include Matt Hasselbeck, Jackie Battle, Earnest Graham, Montario Hardesty, and DeMarco Murray.

Doug Baldwin and the Seattle Seahawks travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in week seven. Baldwin is coming off two impressive performances in his last two games -- catching five passes for 84 yards in week four against Atlanta, and eight passes for 136 yards and a touchdown in week five against the Giants. A quarterback change in Seattle due to Tarvaris Jackson possibly missing this week's game would not affect Baldwin, as he played well with Charlie Whitehurst in the second half of the week five game. Baldwin is the Seahawks' number two wide receiver, but with Joe Haden likely to be covering Sydney Rice, Baldwin should be the Seahawks' top fantasy receiver in week seven. Fantasy owners can start Doug Baldwin and can expect at least 70 yards and a touchdown.

Greg Little and the Cleveland Browns return home to face the Seattle Seahawks in week seven. Little made a good debut in the Browns' starting lineup by catching six passes for 72 yards, his second game in a row in which he caught six passes. Little is the most explosive Browns wide receiver, and has quickly become Colt McCoy's favorite receiving target. McCoy is on pace for a ridiculous amount of pass attempts this season, making Little a good option as a WR3 or flex play (especially in point per reception leagues). Little is still available in almost 45 percent of leagues, but should be on rosters in most leagues by the end of the week. Fantasy owners can expect at least five receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown this week.
