Top 3 Sleeper Picks For Week 2 (9/18/16 – 9/19/16):
1.Gary Barnidge– 2015: 79 REC, 1,043 REC YDS & 9 TD REC (Note: He has a preferred option QB'ing for his team now (Josh McCown) who he gels with considerably as his stat cats have shown in the past when he starts) vs.Ravens Dnext – 2015: tied with two others teams as the 5th worst defense in the NFL in REC TD against & fell victim to Barnidge having two solid games against them last year where he finished with a combined total of 230 YDS REC and one TD REC.
2.Marcus Mariota – 2015: 2,818 YDS PASS, 252 YDS RUSH, 21 PASS+RUSH TD & 10 INT. He faces a roughly middle of the pack defense next, Detroit D, in terms of how they ranked overall defensively compared to all of teams in the NFL in 2015 and is just coming off of a game last week in which could be considered a solid one since the defense he faced was the formidable Minnesota D in which he somehow managed to finish with the following numbers against: 271 YDS PASS, 2 PASS TD & 1 INT. I expect Mariota to do even better offensively this week in a much easier matchup with the Lions.
3.Michael Crabtree– 2015: 85 REC, 922 REC YDS & 9 TD REC vs.Atlanta D next – 2015: Pretty decent defense last year that hovered in just above the mid-tier level defensively in terms of their D's overall effectiveness. However, the Falcons are coming off of a rough game last week to start off the 2016 season giving up 31 points (and close to 300 YDS PASS, 281, with four TD passes thrown against them too) against Tampa Bay in Week 1, so that really shows how ideal of a time it currently is to give Crabtree a start this week. He is, after all, coming off of a solid game in where he caught nine passes for 87 YDS REC and looks to be primed to continue from where he left off in that contest in a now supercharged Raiders passing offense.
Top 3 Deep Sleeper Picks For Week 2 (9/18/16 – 9/19/16):
1.Tyrell Williams – vs.Jacksonville D next – 2015: 4th worst in the NFL in REC YDS against and Williams has a huge opportunity now in 2016 to potentially stand out as the team's top receiving threat due to the fact that his team's star WR Keenan Allen got hurt last week in the team's first regular season game of the year. Somebody's got to step up on the receiving end for the Chargers now and Williams, who actually led San Diego with 71 YDS REC last week, has a pretty good chance of doing just that. He's a 6-4, 205 pound wide receiver that could really be a problem for opposing teams in the red zone and on deep balls like he was against Kansas City in Week 1.
2. Danny Woodhead – 2015: 98 RUSH ATT, 336 RUSH YDS, 80 REC, 755 REC YDS & 9 RUSH+REC TD vs. Jacksonville Dnext – 2015: 4th worst in the NFL in REC YDS against and Woodhead is a big time receiving back for his team who is also coming off of a solid game rushing as well last week in his 2016 Week 1 contest (had 89 YDS RUSH on 16 carries). He should also be more heavily involved than he normally is as a receiving back due to the fact that his team's star WR Keenan Allen got hurt last week.
3. Josh McCown – 2015:2,109 YDS PASS, 13 PASS+RUSH TD & 4 INT vs. Baltimore D next - FanDuel and DraftKings NFL owners who want to take a chance on going with a cheap option at the QB position this week should really consider going with new fill-in starter for the Browns Josh McCown right now. He had a lot of success one week vs. the Ravens in 2015 passing for 457 YDS and finishing with three TD that game. Yes, he didn't have nearly as much success in Cleveland's other matchup vs. Baltimore that same year only passing for 212 YDS and ending up with just one TD against them that week, but if he can finish with stat cats that fall somewhere in the middle of what he did in those two contests, he'll be a worthy start this week. He's simply too cheap of a solid upside option not to consider going with in Week 2 if value play QBs are your thing, especially in tournament play.
