Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 7
QB- Andrew Luck, Indianapolis- We all saw how the rookie struggled against the Jets last week, but he gets an incredibly favorable matchup this week against Cleveland. The Browns are 30th in the league in pass defense and Luck should have a really strong performance. He’d be a good pickup if you have Matt Ryan, Peyton Manning, Michael Vick or Phillip Rivers.
RB- Doug Martin, Buccaneers- The Saints allow five yards per carry and Martin should get at least 15-20 rushes as they look to control the clock against their division rivals. New Orleans is 31st against the run and Martin should get you some points in deep leagues.
RB- Ben-Jarvus Green-Ellis, Bengals- People should no longer be afraid of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense. They allowed 91 yards to Chris Johnson last week and The Law Firm is worth a start this week. I expect him to get in the end zone.
WR- Dominick Hixon, Giants- With Hakeem Nicks and Martellus Bennett still on the mend and the Redskins sporting the worst pass defense in the league, Hixon should continue to get targets on intermediate and deep routes.
WR- Denarius Moore, Raiders- Jacksonville is porous against the pass and numbers one receivers have had a lot of success against the Jags. Look for Moore to get close to 100 yards.
TE- Greg Olson, Panthers- According to Football Outsiders, Dallas is 31st in the league against tight ends and Olson should have a strong performance this week. Heath Miller will also have a very good game this week against Cincinnati.
