Deep Sleepers: Backups you might want to find room on the roster for.
Jason Campbell (OAK): Raiders get to carry thier momentum into a week 4 match up against the New England Patriots who have a very leaky secondary. Look for Campbell to spread the ball out to his bevy of young WR’s, some of whom are returning from injury.
Denarius Moore (OAK): Louis Murphy and Jacoby Ford may be back in the lineup but I don’t the raiders forgetting about Moore who has been electric in recent weeks.
Victor Cruz (NYG): The pre-season star was finally able to bring that success into the regular season in week 3 with over 100 yards and 2 TD’s. I think Cruz just might try to string 2 games like that together to cement the #3 spot.
Bernard Scott (CIN): Temporary start for those who need him until Cedric Benson is back from suspension. More opportunity than talent here.
Greg Olsen (CAR): Playing against his former team, Olsen will want the ball a lot on sunday when he plays Chicago. I expect Newton to look for him early and often.
Dud Studs: Injury or matchup status may lower these Studs fantasy output.
Joe Flacco (BAL): Team like the Jets and Baltimore suck to play after they lose. They Jets lost last week to the raiders, they are going to be angry. Joe Flacco probably wont throw for 3 TD’s in this game, let alone the first quarter like last week.
Arian Foster (HOU): Will be playing again but with a shared workload and against Pittsburgh; looks like another week on the bench for Foster.
DeSean Jackson (PHI): My disdain for Jackson paid off last week when I had him on this very list, and so I am rolling with the cold hand. Only seems to play well when Vick does.
Anquan Boldin (BAL): Only has 1 TD so far this year, I don’t expect him to pad that stat against an angry Jets squad.
Tony Gonzalez (ATL): Tony has been surprisingly effective this year after a drop off in production in 2010, I do not expect him to reach pay dirt against the Seahawks pass defence. Should be a good afternoon for Turner and Rodgers.
These are my Deep Sleepers and Dud Studs for week 3.
hope it helps, more importantly, hope it doesn’t screw you over. -Koopa.
