2017 Fantasy Football: Week 3 Sleepers

Sep 21, 2017

Jay Cutler Dolphins
Sometimes because of match-ups you have to roll out less than ideal lineups, especially when your players are nicked up. That’s the nature of the beast. Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here are some of the under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you.
Jay Cutler, QB, Miami Dolphins – Only the Saints an Patriots (6) have allowed more passing TDs than the Jets.
DeShone Kizer, QB, Cleveland Browns – Indy has allowed 307 yards per game, and it’s not like they faced top passing offenses in the Rams and Cardinals.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – Log shot starting against Belichick, but his rushing ability makes him a desperation play.
LeGarrette Blount, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – Hasn’t done much, but the Giants have allowed 133.5 rushing yards per game.
Orleans Darkwa, RB, New York Giants – Paul Perkins has been terrible (1.9 ypc). Maybe Darkwa gets a chance.
Chris Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals – Outplayed Kerwynn Williams last week. Could have solidified his role.
Shane Vereen, RB, New York Giants – 12 receptions already. Likely busy once again against the Eagles.
Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions – Lions will have to pass plenty to keep up with Atlanta.
Brandon Marshall, WR, New York Giants – Has been ineffective early, but I don’t think the wheels have fallen completely off.
Eli Rogers, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – Brown, Bell and Bryant draw the attention. Rogers should be able to feed off it.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Julio and the running game command so much attention that Sanu has room to operate.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – Could hook up with Cutler for a deep one.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – 10 catches in two games. Bears need to throw to someone.
Benjamin Watson, TE, Baltimore Ravens – Big game last week. Solid bet for looks against the Jags.
Cleveland Browns Defense – Indy’s offense makes Cleveland attractive as a streaming option.
Miami Dolphins Defense – The Jets make the ‘Fins a nice streaming defense option.
