Week 4 of the fantasy football season is a make-or-break opportunity for many fantasy owners trying to dig out of 1-2 and 0-3 starts, so folks like me are looking for all the help they can get. Here are a few sleepers for you to target as the bye weeks begin:
Bilal Powell is now the main man in New York and he showed what he can do in Week 3 with a 150-yard performance. Against a highly-overrated Tennessee Titans defense, he could be in for another big day if given enough carries.
Alex Smith is a worth a look as a bye week fill-in as he’s facing a New York Giants defense that’s given up the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks through three weeks. Smith could be in for a big day as other signal-callers have experienced against the G-Men this year.
Denarius Moore had a surprisingly good game in Week 3 and with a matchup looming against the woeful Washington Redskins, he might put up another good stat line. Washington has given up by the most fantasy points to opposing receivers this year by a pretty large margin.
Heath Miller made his 2013 debut in Week 3 and looked as consistent and reliable as ever. Ben Roethlisberger seems to have found his groove and the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the Minnesota Vikings, who have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this week. If you’re hurting at that position, give Miller a look.
The Indianapolis Colts are playing the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4, which means virtually everyone on Indy’s roster could have a big game. Specifically look at the Colts’ running back duo of Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw as well as their defense because everyone is likely to put up nice stat lines in Jacksonville.
