ï»¿Week two of the fantasy football season is over and I am back to writing full time articles for Inside The Sports World. Given I have a forty point lead in my fantasy matchup heading into tonightâ€™s game, I think its safe to say I am going to start of the season 2 – 0 (I still have Colston my matchup has Thomas). Week two is one of the most important weeks because it leaves owners rethinking that their sleeper picks. For instance, Naanee was a savior for fantasy teams last week but this week he barely picked up a point due to the competition he has to get catches. Yes technically he is the number two receiver and Floyd is number one, but in reality Gates is the number one leaving Naanee at number three for a team that has a dynamic running game with Sproles, Matthews, and Tolbert. Week one was a lucky break for the Boise State product who was left wide open because everyone on the defense was guarding Antonio Gates. This week Jacksonville guarded and Naanee didnâ€™t get the catches. The wealth was shared between Sproles and Gates. And this is the exact problem with players like Naanee or Aromashodu. They have great talent and WILL have number one receiver type weeks but thereâ€™s no guarantee for when that will be. Sunday the Chargers head to Seattle…wouldnâ€™t fret about starting him them, but after that he becomes useless with back-to-back weeks having to deal with Rodgers-Cromartie (ARZ) (I didn’t want to call him by his first name Dominique because that just loses manliness) and then heads to Asomugha Airlines…O wait, Asomugha isnâ€™t as much of a jerk as Revis…honest mistake.
The fact of the matter is that I would much rather have receivers with less talent but also less competition, someone like Demaryius Thomas or Mike Williams but donâ€™t screw up and accidently pick up the wrong Mike Williams on the Seahawks, the one on the Bucs is the real stud.
Hereâ€™s your top 3 fantasy sleepers for Week 3:
Kinda hard to keep calling this guy a sleeper but at 31 percent owned in Yahoo leagues I guess he is. An injury kept him out of week one but a coming out party in Week 2 courtesy of the Seahawks defense led to 97 yards and a touchdown, hard to imagine that wonâ€™t continue against Indy.
No matter how severe Ryan Matthewâ€™s injury is, the Chargers are going to be cautious against the Seahawks. Expect a plethora of opportunities for Tolbert. I know they have Sproles but if they were willing to give it to Tolbert 16 times last week, Iâ€™m pretty sure they will have no problem upping that to 10 especially because he is averaging 6 yards per carry and o by the way, with his first catch of the season, he passed Shonn Greeneâ€™s total last year.
Aaron Hernandez is proving to be Bradyâ€™s deep slant option. As long as he can convert one or two of those per game, you got yourself 7 points right there and if he was able to get 10 points last week against the Jets, he should have no problem doing it against the Bills on Sunday. Now i realize he might not be able to find the endzone with a map, as long as he continues his 100 yard weeks, you are good to go.
