Week 10: Sleepers of the Week

These lesser-known players deserve to start this week due to matchup or other circumstances. This week's picks include Josh Freeman, Matt Moore, Mark Sanchez, Jackie Battle, and Maurice Morris.

Chris Ogbonnaya and the Cleveland Browns return home to take on the St. Louis Rams in week ten. Ogbonnaya got the start for the Browns in week nine with both Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty injured, but was ineffective in the game. Ogbonnaya totaled only 41 yards on 14 touches, while also losing a fumble on his first carry of the game. Ogbonnaya's sleeper status is based solely on the opponent this week. The Rams have allowed more than 153 yards rushing per game -- 31st in the league. Despite his poor outing in week nine, the Rams have to stick with Ogbonnaya at running back (as their only other running back is newly signed Thomas Clayton). Fantasy owners in a bind this week can start Chris Ogbonnaya as a RB 2 or Flex play and can expect at least 75 total yards and one touchdown.

Laurent Robinson and the Dallas Cowboys take on the Buffalo Bills at home in week ten. Robinson has been impressive as the Cowboys' number three receiver since signing with the team earlier this season, and will have another opportunity to start this week with Miles Austin likely out. Robinson has caught touchdowns in consecutive games and has had two games with more than 100 yards receiving on the season. Robinson has a good match-up this week against a Bills secondary that is currently allowing 260 passing yards per game. Robinson is owned in just 34 percent of fantasy leagues, but should be a good WR 3 or Flex play option this week, making him a good pickup off the waiver wire. Fantasy owners can start Laurent Robinson and can expect five catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.
