The 4 Best: Week 2 Fantasy Sleepers
1. Kenny Britt - Tennessee WR: Britt hasn't played since Week 3 of last season. He had 3 TDs in the two weeks before his injury. In 2010, #18 started and finished 10 games and had 9 TDs.
He has averaged almost 60 yards and 0.5 TDs a game in his career. For a guy who was drafted as a bench player in most fantasy leagues, he is a top 5 receiver week to week when healthy.
2. Mike Williams - Tampa Bay WR: Mike Williams became forgotten after last seasons because of the Bucs' offensive woes. He was also drafted to the bench in most fantasy leagues. He was also dropped this week in a league I am in, even after scoring a TD last week. This week Tampa will go up against the injury-depleted New York Giants' secondary. Romo and the Cowboys exposed the Big Blue secondary. Vincent Jackson will draw the attention of the number one corner, leaving the tall Williams with a great match up.
3. Steven Ridley - New England RB: Steven Ridley is the man going forward in the New England backfield. He had 125 yards and 1 TD last week against the Titans. Seems like a no-brainer play, but he was drafted to the bench in 10 and 12 team leagues and is only starting in 57 percent of Yahoo fantasy football leagues. This week, the Patriots play against the Cardinals who are traveling across the country. The Cards have a very good secondary led by Patrick Peterson, and the Pats may look to be a little more balanced then their normal game plan.
4. Colby Fleener - Indianapolis TE: Fleener has great chemistry with college-, and now, pro-teammate Andrew Luck. Fleener had 8 catches for 82 yards on 10 targets last week. This week, the Colts take on a Vikings defense not nearly as good as the Bears defense they faced last week. Luck will have much more success then he did last week, which means so will Fleener. The Vikings gave up 52 yards and a TD last week to TE Mercedes Lewis. Fleener is only owned in 52 percent of Yahoo leagues and started in much fewer. He will be a good play this week and in the future.
