Rank's 11 Sleepers: A Keen(um) interest in Case

Print

Jordan Cameron made his way through half of NFL Network and I was hit with the sudden realization that if he was here, it meant the Browns were on a bye. And more to the point, I needed a tight end for this week.

(And yes, make your jokes now about being prepared for the week. But the celebration for already clinching a playoff berth in our "Experts League" has led to a fantasy hangover.)

But I do need to make sure I have a tight end to replace Cameron and my first pick was Timothy Wright, who is available in a ton of leagues right now. Wright has become a favorite of new quarterback Mike Glennon and has scored at least nine points in three of his last four games. He's even scored a touchdown in consecutive contests. So if you also spaced on the bye week, you should grab Wright off your bench.

Rankings: Finding Mr. Wright
Timothy Wright has earned a lot of looks lately -- including one from Adam Rank in his weekly fantasy rankings. More ...

All right, enough of that, let's get to the rest of the sleepers.

Jake Locker, QB, Tennessee Titans: The Jaguars have allowed the second-most points to fantasy quarterbacks this year. Locker has scored at least 19 fantasy points in three of his last four games.

Case Keenum, QB, Houston Texans: Keenum scored the third-most points among quarterbacks in Week 9 and he has 621 passing yards in two starts this season. He hasn't thrown an interception in 59 attempts.

Danny Woodhead, RB, San Diego Chargers: He's scored at least eight fantasy points in five consecutive games. He's had at least 75 scrimmage yards in six consecutive games.

Rashad Jennings, RB, Oakland Raiders: He scored the fifth-most points among fantasy running backs in Week 9 as he averaged close to seven yards-per-carry against the Eagles.

Shonn Greene, RB, Tennessee Titans: The Jaguars have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs this season. In addition, the Jags have allowed nine rushing touchdowns in their last three games.

Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: He's scored at least nine fantasy points in three of his last four games. The Bills have allowed an NFL-high 15 touchdown receptions this year.

Kendall Wright, WR, Tennessee Titans: Wright has notched at least 65 receiving yards in four consecutive games. He's scored fewer than six fantasy points just once in his last seven and now he's got the Jags who have allowed 10 receiving touchdowns this year.

Kris Durham, WR, Detroit Lions: He's been one of the most-targeted receivers in the game recently, with 35 in his last four games. The Lions have attempted 109 pass attempts in the last two road games in Chicago.

Marlon Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens: Five of his 26 receptions this season are touchdowns. He had a team-high nine targets last week against the Browns.

Griff Whalen, WR, Indianapolis Colts: He was targeted a career-high nine times against the Texans last week. The St. Louis Football Club has allowed 11 touchdown receptions to receivers this year.

Tennessee Titans D/ST: The Jaguars have allowed the second-most fantasy points to defenses this year. Seriously, they are playing the Jags. Do you need more words?

Did you know that Adam Rank won last year's Expert's League title? Oh that's right, it's like the only thing he ever talks about. Well congratulations, Rank. You finally did something. What have you done for us lately? Let's worry about 2013 and stop living in the past. Typical Lakers fan, am I right? Oh, if you found this useful (as if) check him out on the latest "Dave Dameshek Football Program". And follow him on Twitter, please. He's taking us to lunch if he gets 17 more Twitter followers today. And we only got 15 the last time, so step up fantasy enthusiasts!
