Week 11 PPR WR/TE Sleepers
As we enter week 11 in this NFL season, injuries are affecting fantasy teams all around. With teams on their bye weeks as well, it is my job to give you the best advice for up and coming receivers and tight ends that can help fantasy owners in PPR format leagues. As everyone knows, WR and TE are very important to fantasy owners in PPR leagues. This makes it crucial to find those under the radar guys during waivers each week. Don't miss out on the next big stud.
Heading into week 11
All players on my list are owned in less than 30% of ESPN Leagues
John Brown - Wide Receiver - Arizona Cardinals (13.6% owned)
The quick shifty John Brown has had a very solid NFL season. A player that is capable of making huge plays, John Brown uses his great speed to separate himself from defensive backs. He will face off against a tough Detroit Lions defense but look for the Cardinals to take a couple deep shots down the field with Brown. With a lot of the focus on Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, and Andre Ellington; John Brown has made the most of his opportunities all year long and will continue to face the weaker corner backs for teams. Do yourself a favor and give Mr. Brown a chance this week.
Kenny Stills - Wide Receiver - New Orleans Saints (5.5% owned)
Another big play talent is Kenny Stills. Majority of Kenny Still's catches are deep passes down the field so he can be a hit or miss sometimes. But against a struggling Bengals team and playing at home in New Orleans, I have a good feeling that we could see a huge night from the big play receiver. Kenny only has 1 touchdown on the season but look for him to add to that total as he has around 250 yards receiving over the past 4 games. The touchdowns will eventually come which will give him even better fantasy numbers.
Kyle Rudolph - Tight End - Minnesota Vikings (15.6% owned)
Heading into this season Kyle Rudolph was considered as an elite tight end but with injuries he hasn't been able to show off his talent to fantasy owners. Kyle who looks to finally be healthy enough to play is worth picking up and starting for those of you who struggle to find a solid tight end. Facing a struggling Bears team and playing in a cold environment, look for a lot of safe and short passes to the tight end. I expect a very solid week for Kyle Rudolph and you fantasy owners should feel the same way.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Tight End - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1.9% owned)
One of the big bodied targets for the Bucs is Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Austin who has 2 touchdowns in his last 3 games is starting to pick it up. He will also be going up against a banged up Washington Redskins secondary which could lead for a solid day for Jenkins. He is a little bit of a long shot, but could be worth starting for deeper formats as a tight end play this week. Give Austin a chance if you are struggling to find one as Josh Mccown will look this huge target's way a decent amount especially in the red zone.
