I know one thing for sure these Thursday games throw me off big time. I am the type of player who likes a couple of my guys going Monday night so I know how many points I need to seal off another victory. The last bye weeks are this week and a bunch of injuries at QB really affect this week’s sleepers.
1. Nick Foles v.s Was – This is easily the sleeper of the week, With the likes of Ben, Cutler, Vick & Eli not going this week. Foles is a must have player for your team if you own one of those guys. He has an easy matchup this week against Washington. They have given up 300+ yards 6 times this year. One thing we know for sure Andy Reid loves to throw the football. Need a QB for the week, Foles is definitely the guy to have.
2. Steve Smith v.s TB – The Bucs have given up over 700+ yards of passing the last two weeks. Smith should have no problem shredding this defense this weekend. I really look for him to have big game. Hopefully getting back on track for the rest of the season.
3. Donnie Avery v.s NE – I think we may see a WR for every team facing the NE defense on this list every week. Avery is averaging 6+ targets every game this year. The Colts throw the football a lot & this week is going to be no different. So whether it’s a shootout or they are trying to comeback. Avery will see his fair share of targets this week.
4. Danny Amendola v.s NYJ – He simply showed why wise Fantasy owners stashed him after being dropped after the injury(including myself). He caught 11 of his 12 targets for 102 yards last week. In PPR leagues this guy is a flat stud, this week against a bad Jets D he should be really good.
5. Donald Jones v.s Mia – Jones is having a very good season this year and is coming on strong as of late. 24 targets in the last 3 games, 2 of which went for touchdowns. This could be a high scoring game for sure. So that will fare well for Jones as well.
Those are my Week 11 sleepers, I will be posting my start/sits on Friday. Any thoughts or questions feel free to comment below or contact me on Twitter.(@rickygangster)
