2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 5: Top Three Players
Here are the top three players to consider for 2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 5:
3. Miami Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill
In a year filled with five rookie quarterbacks, Tannehill had one of the best performances of the season in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals as he completed 26 of 41 passes for 431 yards and one touchdown. While it may be difficult to top those numbers on Sunday, Tannehill has caught the eye of numerous fantasy football owners and has the potential to put up solid numbers against a Cincinnati Bengals team dealing with injuries at the cornerback position.
2. Minnesota Vikings Tight End Kyle Rudolph
Fantasy owners were expecting big numbers from Rudolph last weekend against the Detroit Lions, but he was limited to just two catches for eight yards–which doesn’t help much in any league. This weekend, Rudolph will be going against a Tennessee Titans‘ defense that has allowed six touchdowns to tight ends over the first four weeks of the season.
With limited options in the passing game–don’t be surprised if Christian Ponder targets Rudolph heavily on Sunday.
1. New York Jets Wide Receiver Jeremy Kerley
Losing Santonio Holmes for the season was devastating new for the Jets considering how much Mark Sanchez has struggled so far this season. For a team in need for help at the wide receiver position, Kerley has a rare opportunity to become a big factor for New York over the rest of the season if he can become Sanchez’s favorite target.
Kerley has recorded two catches in each of the last three weeks–so expect those numbers to increase in Week 5.
