2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 11: Looking at the Top Three Players
Here’s a look at the top three players for 2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 11:
3. Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen
Last weekend against the Denver Broncos, Olsen had his best game of the season for the Panthers after catching nine passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns. There’s a low amount of reliable tight ends available in most leagues and Olsen may be one of the best pick ups for Week 11 as he’s going against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that ranks last in the league when it comes to stopping the pass.
2. Oakland Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey
Over the last two games, Heyward-Bey has caught 10 passes for 156 yards and one touchdowns as he’s been one of the few reliable options for Carson Palmer in the passing game. This year may not have gone the way the Raiders would have liked it to, but Heyward-Bey has a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday–a team that ranks last when it comes to overall defense and 31st against the pass.
Plus, Palmer has been quite the surprise considering the lack of running game behind Oakland–so don’t be surprised if Heyward-Bey sees plenty of passes thrown his way on Sunday.
1. Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles
The argument can be made that no quarterback will face more pressure in Week 11 than Foles as he looks to help the Eagles end a five-game losing streak. Foles is coming off a performance against the Dallas Cowboys in which he completed 22 of 32 passes for 219 yards with one touchdown and one interception, but those numbers could go up as he’s set to make his first start against the Washington Redskins–who rank 30th when it comes to stopping the pass.
