Fantasy Football Sleepers

Last updated:

Who are the fantasy football players to watch that might be flying under the radar? Sneaky late-round draft picks, sleepers, dark horses, and potential breakout players, updated weekly.

Week 11 Sleepers

Blake Bortles, QB/JAX at CLE: If you’re in a bind and need a one-week fill-in, it’s always nice to have a player who is up against the woeful Browns in your back pocket.

Jay Cutler, QB/MIA vs. TB: Cutler is going to have his moments of brilliance and moments of frustration, and he ought to have more of the former than latter against a poor Bucs pass defense.

Orleans Darkwa, RB/NYG vs. KC: The Chiefs have allowed 131.1 rushing yards per game, which ranks them 29th in the NFL. The Giants will likely try to control the tempo in this one, which means a heavy dose of the run game.

Jamaal Williams, RB/GB vs. BAL: Williams is "next man up" for the Packers and he ought to get a heavy workload against the Ravens’ poor and inconsistent run defense.

Dontrelle Inman, WR/CHI vs. DET: The Bears acquired Inman to help their injury-riddled wide receiver position and the reviews were positive after one game. The team -- and most importantly, the quarterback -- like what he brings to the field and they trust him.

DeVante Parker, WR/MIA vs. TB: With Jarvis Landry a bit banged up and with the Dolphins facing a weak Bucs pass defense, Parker has strong potential this week.

Jason Witten, TE/DAL vs. PHI: Witten has been kind of boom-or-bust this season, posting four games with at least seven receptions and three games with just one reception. This is one of those matchups against a poor Eagles pass defense where Witten could come out on the plus side.

C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE/HOU vs. ARI: Fiedorowicz returned to the field from an injury last week and did not make an immediate splash, but he has a favorable matchup this week with Arizona.
