Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of Lester’s Legends under-the-radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you this week.
Jake Locker, QB, Tennessee Titans
Jake Locker is averaging 205.3 passing yards, 1.3 passing touchdowns, 22.8 rushing yards and 0.3 rushing touchdowns. He makes for a nice spot start against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jags have allowed 230.5 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game. His ability to produce with his feet gives him that little something extra over some other QB2 types.
Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona Cardinals
Andre Ellington exploded in his last game with 154 yards and a score against the Atlanta Falcons. He faces the Houston Texans. The Texans have allowed 115.5 yards per game.
Rashard Mendenhall could return, but Ellington is clearly the more dynamic back.
Lance Moore, WR, New Orleans Saints
Lance Moore has nine receptions on 14 targets over the past two games for 104 yards and a touchdown. Marques Colston, who missed the last game, has been an afterthought. Darren Sproles got concussed last week.
I expect a shootout against the Dallas Cowboys. Drew Brees is comfortable with Moore. Now that he’s healthy, he could be busy once again.
Tim Wright, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tim Wright is averaging 53 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his past four games. He’s facing the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have allowed 252.3 yards per game, including 61.3 yards to opposing tight ends. Six of their nine passing touchdowns allowed went to tight ends.
Rob Bironas, K, Tennessee Titans
Rob Bironas has 53 points on 11 field goals and 20 extra points. He should score well against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags have allowed 11 field goals and 33 extra points.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a mediocre defensive unit, but they are facing a Miami Dolphins team that is without two starting offensive linemen.
The Dolphins rank 28th in total offense with 315.3 yards per game and 19th in scoring offense with 21.8 points per game. They have been sacked more times (35) than any other team. Miami has also turned the ball over 15 times.
