2012 Week 9 Fantasy Football Sleepers
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 nine.
Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Bears
It’s always an uneasy feeling when you’re trotting out Cutler. He is more than capable of crushing your week with a bevy of interceptions. I like his chances this week though against Tennessee, who has allowed 17 touchdown passes and 282.0 passing yards per game.
Daniel Thomas, RB, Miami Dolphins
The Colts are 27th against the run, giving up 137.4 yards per game. They are also one of ten teams to have allowed eight or more rushing touchdowns. With three scores in the past five games, that could play into Thomas’ favor. He’s received double-digit carries the past two games, a trend that should continue this week.
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Oakland Raiders
Continues to work his way back. He caught just one pass last week, but it went for a touchdown. He had 85 yards the prior week. Denarius Moore is the top dog, but against a Bucs team that’s yielding 309.6 passing yards per game, there should be plenty to go around.
Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
The Redskins have allowed six tight end touchdowns. They have also allowed five tight ends to go over 50 yards. The odds are in Olsen’s favor that he adds to those totals.
San Diego Chargers Defense
The Chargers rank tenth in total defense (326.6 ypg) and tied for ninth in scoring defense (20.6 ppg). They are facing the Chiefs who have quarterback issues, forget they have explosive Jamaal Charles in the backfield, and only score 17.1 ppg.
