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.
Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Bears
Jay Cutler is averaging 273.6 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Alshon Jeffery has emerged as a quality complement to Brandon Marshall, giving Cutler a pair of quality options on the outside. Throw in Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett, and the Chicago Bears have a lot of firepower. This week’s opponent is the New York Giants. They have allowed 269.2 yards and 2.4 touchdowns per game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon is a deep-sleeper option. He is facing the Philadelphia Eagles. They have allowed 326 yards and 2.2 touchdowns per game.
Danny Woodhead, RB, San Diego Chargers
Danny Woodhead is averaging 64.6 total yards. He has caught three touchdown passes in the past two games. Ryan Mathews will have to pass concussion tests to play this week against the Indianapolis Colts. They have allowed 129 rushing yards per game. Even if the Colts get up big, Woodhead would continue to see looks in the passing game.
Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is a decent bet to put up numbers in garbage time against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Terrance Williams, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Terrance Williams caught four passes for 151 yards and a touchdown last week against the Broncos. He displayed impressive athleticism on his 82-yard score. The prior week he caught seven passes for 71 yards against the Chargers. If Miles Austin sits against the Washington Redskins, Williams would be in line for another solid day. Even if Austin plays, Williams can be used against a Redskins team allowing 298.3 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell is a decent desperation play against the Minnesota Vikings. They have allowed 326 yards and 2.5 touchdowns through the air.
Garrett Graham, TE, Houston Texans
Garrett Graham will get the start against the St. Louis Rams with Owen Daniels on the shelf. He has averaged 28.2 yards and 0.6 touchdowns while sharing with Daniels. The Rams have allowed 11 passing touchdowns.
This is more speculation than anything, but perhaps this is the week the Vikings realize that Kyle Rudolph could be a good option in the passing game if they just get him the ball.
Nick Folk, K, New York Jets
Nick Folk is tied for eighth in scoring with 42 points on 11 field goals and nine extra points. The New York Jets have been better than anticipated. They face the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. The Steelers have allowed nine field goals and 11 extra points.
New York Jets Defense
The New York Jets rank second in total defense with 299 yards per game allowed and 15th in scoring defense with 23.2 points per game allowed. They take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at home. The Steelers rank 29th in scoring offense with 17.3 points per game.
