2012 Week 16 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Dec 19, 2012

Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you in Week 16.
Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Rams
Bradford threw for 377 yards and three touchdowns last week against the Minnesota Vikings. The success should continue against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have allowed 310.6 yards per game and 27 passing touchdowns.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, Carolina Panthers
D-Will is averaging 128 total yards and a touchdown in his past two games. He will likely have to break a long run to score a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders, but that is not out of the question. The Raiders have allowed 122.5 yards per game and 17 rushing scores. Both of D-Will’s touchdown were receiving scores so he will also contribute in the passing game.
Danny Amendola, WR, St. Louis
Amendola is easily Bradford’s favorite target. He caught six passes last week for 58 yards and a touchdown. He added a two-point conversion as well. He’s a strong play against the Bucs’ terrible pass defense.
Lance Kendricks, TE, St, Louis Rams
A favorable matchup goes a long way when you are taking a long shot. Kendricks has scored in two of his past four games. He’s had at least 30 yards in each of those games so his baseline shouldn’t be too low. The Bucs have allowed 50 yards and/or a touchdown to tight ends in eight games this year.
Kai Forbath, K, Washington Redskins
Forbath has 15 field goals and 26 extra points in nine games. The Philadelphia Eagles have allowed 25 field goals and 42 extra points.
Indianapolis Colts Defense
The Colts are not a strong defensive unit, but they have a favorable matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs rank 25th in total offense and dead last in scoring offense.

    Curious as to why Amendola is on the sleeper list. I figure he’d be a top 15 play, especially in a PPR format….

    My rankings tend not to be PPR format.

    Plus, he’s owned in a little over half of ESPN and a little over 60 percent of Yahoo leagues.
