New, 4 comments

Ray takes a look at some Week 13 sleepers that could help you win your fantasy matchup this week, including Matthew Stafford, Keenan Allen and others.

This weekly feature will take a look at some sleepers at each position who could help fantasy teams win their weekly matchup. To determine the sleepers, I will be using the fantasy points allowed at each position statistics, courtesy of AsktheCommish.com.

For week 13, I will use the fantasy points allowed this season, so we are getting a good idea as to which team defenses are allowing the most fantasy points at each position.

Sleeper Performance: Week 12

Quarterback:

Joe Flacco, Ravens vs Saints - 18-24, 243 yards, 1 TD

Running Back:

Isaiah Crowell, Browns vs Falcons - 12 rushes, 88 yards, 2 TDs

Wide Receiver:

Malcolm Floyd, Chargers vs Rams -  4 receptions, 30 yards, 0 TD

Tight End:

Scott Chandler, Bills vs Jets -  3 receptions, 28 yards, 1 TD

Fantasy Points Allowed: Year to Date

Below you will find a table (courtesy of Ask the Commish) that lists, by team defense, the fantasy points each team defense has allowed to opposing quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.

I have selected my sleeper picks based on the fantasy points allowed through the first 12 weeks of the season, assuming the trend (allowing more fantasy points) continues.

Week 13 Sleepers

Quarterback

Matthew Stafford, Lions vs Bears

The Bears defense ranks 31st in fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs this season, and Stafford is playing at home on Thanksgiving Day.After throwing two touchdown passes in weeks 8-10, Stafford has failed to toss a TD pass in each of his last two games. That should change on Turkey Day.

Running Back

Tre Mason, Rams vs Raiders

The Raiders defense ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed vs opposing running backs this season, giving up more than 20 fantasy points per game. Mason is getting the bulk of the carries in the Rams backfield and has the talent to put up a breakout game in Week 13.

Wide Receiver

Keenan Allen, Chargers vs Ravens

The Ravens defense ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers this season, and Allen is coming off a 100+ yard, one touchdown performance last week vs the Rams.

Tight End

Charles Clay, Dolphins vs Jets
