Bound To Go Bonkers in Week 15

4 Fantasy Football Sleepers For Fanduel

Alfred morris redskins(RB) - Alfred Morris $6,400 - With RG3 officially benched for the remainder of the 2103 season, the Washington Redskins will surely be using the crap out of their running backs.  The man spearheading that zone blocking scheme is none other than our first sleeper pick for Week 15, Alf Morris.  After some inconsistent games over his past three outings, we are very confident that Mr. Morris will be back in full effect against the extremely putrid Falcons defense, as he is projected to be a top-10 back this week.  Expect big things out of the rather bland running back from Washington for Week 15 of Fanduel action, and get ready to slot him into your lineup.

 

(RB) - C.J. Spiller $5,900 - After racking up a healthy 22.7 Fanduel fantasy points two weeks ago against the horrific Falcons, it was predictable to that the Bills' speedy running back would struggle a bit against Tampa Bay's tough run defense (and he did, scoring just 5.3 points).  With a new week comes new opportunities, and Mr. Spiller gets to sing his Redemption Song (reference Bob Marley) as he faces off against the cruddy Jaguars defense this week. Priced cheaper than yesterday's newspaper, we think you'll find some huge sleeper value in Buffalo's young running back, so get him into your mix if you want a chance at Fanduel riches.

 

(WR) - Steve Johnson $4,900 - Are the good folks at Fanduel bugging out or just hiding cookies in their pricing system for us to find (and devour)? Either way, the veteran wide receiver out of Buffalo is racking up enough fantasy points on a weekly basis to consider using him as a budget buster (otherwise known as your third wide receiver for most Fanduel experts).  Let's get this straight: if you use him and he hits, then you are probably winning money and bragging to all of your boys on Monday morning; but if he defecates the bed, you can quietly pretend it never happened and smile, knowing he was just a longshot budget buster that RotoBaller told you to use... sound good?

 

(WR) - Pierre Garcon $6,800 - With Robert Blooper The Third out of commission for the remainder of the season, we are loving the former Colts wide receiver even more as he heads into Week 15 to face the Falcons and their ugly secondary.  We have already done deep analysis in previous weeks exposing the tragedy that is the Falcons defense, so just trust us when we tell you that target-monster Garcon will be very busy trying to catch some pigskin thrown at him in the cushy indoor confines of Atlanta's home stadium.  Averaging 7.86 Fanduel points over his past three outings, we have him projected as a top-10 wide receiver candidate for Week 15 of fantasy football action.

 

The Proof Is In The Pudding

With our “RotoBaller Expert Picks Newsletter”, you get the benefit of the hours of high-end research that go into each and every one of our newsletters, and every bit of expert analysis that comes along with that.  Sign up for Fanduel today and receive our special reduced pricing.  As a special added bonus, you will also receive a complimentary copy of our newsletter every week for the remainder of the 2013 fantasy football season.  Take a look at an excerpt from the Week 14 newsletter, which featured the likes of Josh McCown (who put in some serious work) and Joe Flacco (who reclaimed some of that Super Bowl glory), to see for yourself how this all works and get a taste of the expert advice we are dishing out to help you win big!

QB (Strong) - Josh McCown - $7,200 - This guy has done nothing but open up a ton of eyes since he stepped in as the replacement option for Jay Cutler.  Averaging 18.07 fantasy points over his past three games, the almost forgotten career backup has given the Chicago Bears hope, and he's done it from a very affordable Fanduel price point week after week.  For Week 14, he has graduated from our value play to our strong pick of the week, as he comes in just a tad over $7K.  Facing the Cowboys and their second-worst pass defense at home has us salivating about this super-strong sleeper quarterback.  Projected to at least equal his past three weeks' average in Week 14 has us very confident in recommending him to you if you want to go with the less name-brand player with an A+ matchup.  Get him in if you want to bypass the Tom Brady's of the fantasy football world for this week.

QB (Value) - Joe Flacco - $6,900 - Broadway Joe he is not!  Even after winning a flukey Super Bowl last season, we all knew that this guy was not quite the pure passing talent that Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees is, but Flacco is consistent and stable enough to be a very high-end game manager against even the toughest of defensive opponents.  That is seemingly his best characteristic, which is why we would never want him as our QB1 in a seasonal format, however the Week 14 home matchup against the atrocious Minnesota Vikings has us licking our chops and sprinting to Fanduel to insert him into our lineups.  Coming in just above the horrific Cowboys pass defense (whom we presume McCown will be tearing up) is the lowly Vikings secondary ranked 30th in the NFL.  Having allowed 3444 total passing yards and a league-worst 26 passing touchdowns, these are the most obvious indicators of why we are sure Flacco is bound to go bonkers and get you paid this week, so just trust the numbers and the stability that Flacco brings to his games in Baltimore, and slide this sleeper stud into your mix.
