Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of Lester’s Legends under-the-radar players who could possibly pull out a win for you this week.
Case Keenum, QB, Houston Texans
Case Keenum is averaging 274 yards and 2.3 touchdowns in three starts. He has added 16.3 yards on the ground. He has thrown three touchdowns in each of the past two games and has yet to throw a pick on the year.
He’s playing against the Oakland Raiders at home. The Raiders have allowed 246.6 yards and two touchdowns per game through the air.
Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona Cardinals
Andre Ellington isn’t the starter for the Arizona Cardinals even though he’s by far more explosive than Rashard Mendenhall. Ellington is 5’9″ and 199 pounds. They want to limit him to around 12-15 touches per game.
That should be enough against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags have allowed 153 yards and 1.6 touchdowns per game. Despite only getting 8.7 touches per game on the year, Ellington has averaged 67.1 total yards.
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Percy Harvin could return to face the Minnesota Vikings. Golden Tate leads the team in receiving. Doug Baldwin could be the forgotten man. He’s averaging 75.5 yards in his past two games and 52.3 per game on the season.
Harvin will likely be a snap count, particularly if the game is in hand. Baldwin could slide under the radar for another solid performance. The Vikes have allowed 285.7 yards and 2.3 touchdowns. Monitor his playing status.
Coby Fleener, TE, Indianapolis Colts
Coby Fleener is averaging 40.6 yards and 0.4 touchdowns in his past eight games. He has been targeted 5.8 times per game during that span. He’s facing the Tennessee Titans. Five of the seven touchdowns the Titans have allowed went to tight ends.
Nick Folk, K, New York Jets
Nick Folk is tied for fourth in the league in scoring with 23 field goals and 14 extra points. He’s facing the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have allowed 21 field goals and 28 extra points.
Arizona Cardinals Defense
The Arizona Cardinals rank 13th in total defense (330.6 YPG allowed) and 12th in scoring defense (22 PPG allowed). They have 26 sacks and 20 takeaways. The Cards take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags rank last in total offense (278.4 YPG) and scoring offense (12.8 PPG). They have allowed 31 sacks and have 17 turnovers.
