Who are the players flying under the radar? A look at potential Week 3 fantasy football sleepers.
Alex Smith, QB/WAS vs. GB
The young Packers secondary has had its share of problems defending the pass this season.
Derek Carr, QB/OAK at MIA
Carr completed 29 of 32 attempts last week and will face a Dolphins pass defense that has given up 270 yards per game through the air so far.
Rex Burkhead, RB/NE at DET
The Lions have yielded a whopping 179.5 yards per game on the ground through two weeks.
Tarik Cohen, RB/CHI at ARI
The Cardinals have one of the worst rushing defenses in the league, which is a good time for the Bears to get their scat back more involved.
Pierre Garcon, WR/SF at KC
The Chiefs can sling the ball through the air offensively, but they have difficulty defending it.
D.J. Moore, WR/CAR vs. CIN
The Panthers want to get the rookie more involved in the offense and it’s a good time to do so against a shaky Bengals pass defense.
Austin Hooper, TE/ATL vs. NO
I’d recommend starting a lot of players against the Saints’ defense any given week.
Nick Boyle, TE/BAL vs. DEN
More of a long-shot sleeper, the Broncos have had their ups and downs against the pass and if the Ravens want to move the ball, they’ll need to utilize the tight end position.
