The fantasy football playoff stretch run is well underway, which means every game is critical from here on out. If you need some help with your matchup this week, here are some sleepers for you to target:
Eli Manning has been pretty inconsistent this year, but this week he’s facing the Dallas Cowboys’ banged up defense that has been more than kind to opposing passers this year. Plus, Eli lit up Dallas with 450 yards and four touchdowns in Week 1, so he could be in for another big day.
DeAngelo Williams hasn’t been getting a ton of work, but he’s been productive in a limited role. He could go off against the Miami Dolphins, who have given up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs over the past month.
Andre Caldwell doesn’t get a lot of balls thrown his way, but with Wes Welker recovering from a concussion, he could be the Denver Broncos’ No. 3 receiver in a shootout against the Patriots this week. In other words, he’s a super sleeper.
Dallas Clark has shown flashes of his old self at times this year and against the New York Jets, he could have a vintage performance; New York has given up the third-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends over the past four weeks.
The Green Bay Packers’ defense hasn’t been great in fantasy land this year, but against a lowly Minnesota Vikings offense, Green Bay could put up a pleasantly surprising stat line, which could alter the outcomes of many fantasy matchups.
