Each week of the fantasy football season, there are plenty of sleeper articles out there for offensive players. However, there are never enough IDP sleepers. So to help set your final lineup in IDP leagues, here are some fantasy sleepers at the linebacker position for Week 13.
LB Vincent Rey, Cincinnati Bengals – In the last two games, Rey has incredibly racked up 27 tackles, three sacks, and an interception. He has been all over the field, but is still only owned in 2% of Yahoo IDP formats. Now factor in that LB Vontaze Burfict could be limited in this week’s game and Rey is looking like an All-Pro IDP option for Week 13.
LB Manny Lawson, Buffalo Bills – Lawson is quietly having a productive season in Buffalo. The linebacker has 52 tackles on the year and has racked up two sacks as well. Buffalo faces the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday and shockingly QB Matt Ryan has been sacked eight times over the last two games alone. Lawson will be blitzing on nearly every snap and fantasy fans can expect him to get to Ryan at least once.
LB London Fletcher, Washington Redskins – Fletcher missed some time in practice this week, but he will be good to go against the New York Giants. New York ran the ball 30 times last weekend and the struggling offense will be looking to pound the ball inside again the Sunday. Fletcher will get plenty of chances to rack up hits and the veteran should have no problem finishing the game with eight total hits.
