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 12.
Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith, QB, San Francisco 49ers
Nothing like a quarterback controversy to spice things up in the Bay Area. Whoever Jim Harbaugh chooses for his quarterback this week makes a decent plug-in play against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints rank 31st with 305 passing yards allowed per game. They are tied for worst in the NFL with 21 touchdown passes allowed.
The other team that has allowed 21 passing scores is the New England Patriots. That makes New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez a sleeper option as well.
Ronnie Hillman, RB, Denver Broncos
Hillman slides into the starting role against the Kansas City Chiefs with Willis McGahee out. The Chiefs are giving up 129.2 rushing yards per game.
Bryce Brown, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
It is hard to rely on anybody on the Eagles right now, but Brown will likely get a chance to carry the load with LeSean McCoy dealing with a concussion. The Carolina Panthers are giving up 118.4 rushing yards per game.
Mike Williams, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Williams is averaging 59.7 yards per game with five touchdowns on the year. The Atlanta Falcons have had a pretty solid pass defense this year, but I’m expecting fireworks in this one. On the flip side, if Julio Jones is out, Harry Douglas could be a sound sleeper for the Falcons.
Jermichael Finley, TE, Green Bay Packers
Finley caught three passes for 66 yards and a touchdown last week. He had a 20-yard touchdown and a 40-yard grab to show some of the explosiveness he’s been known for. Was it a fluke or is he finally back on track? That’s the million-dollar question.
St. Louis Rams Defense
The Rams rank 11th in total defense (337.4 yards per game allowed). The Arizona Cardinals rank 31st in total offense (283.7 yards per game) and 30th in scoring offense (16.3 points per game). They are averaging 12 points per game during their current six-game losing streak. The Cardinals have allowed an NFL-high 44 sacks.
