Fantasy Football Sleepers Results (Week Three)

September 27, 2010 at 8:12 am Leave a comment

A recap of how my recommended sleepers did on Sunday.

QB

  • Joe Flacco: 262 3 tds, (plays well versus Mangini, must manage week to week)
  • Michael Vick: 291 3 tds, 30 1 td (Pretty much what you expect versus Jacksonville)
  • Vince Young: 10/16 118 TD (Giants didn’t put up much a fight here)

RB

  • Darren McFadden: 25 for 105 TD (McFadden did indeed get the bulk of the carries and continues to shake off the bust label.  Bush was used in a goaline package, drop em.)
  • Tim Hightower: 11 for 40 (once the Cards fell behind Oakland, they pounded Wells…he is back and Hightower is simply a change of pace rb.)
  • Fred Taylor: 16 yards (recommended pickup from last week BenJarvis Green-Ellis got the bulk of the work while Danny Woodhead took over for Faulk when they used a back in those formations)

WR

  • Percy Harvin: 6 for 62 TD (Remains Favre’s #1 receiver, might be in must start range with Minnesota’s limited options)
  • Jeremy Maclin:4 catches 83 yards, 2 TDs (Vick continues to work his progressions.)
  • Dez Bryant: 4 catches 50 yards (Williams exploded, Dez was illegally forced out in what would’ve been a 40 yard TD)

TE

  • Aaron Hernandez: 6 catches 65 yards (They continue to use Hernandez often, especially to counter defense’s double coverage of Welker)
  • Marcedes Lewis: 3 for 15 (Eagles focused on Lewis and the return of Stewart Bradley helped Philly blanket Lewis. Garrard had 26 passing yards into the fourth)

Others:

  • Blair White was indeed worth a look in deeper leagues, caught 3 balls for 27 yards and a touchdown.
  • Chris Ivory got some work yesterday but had a costly fumble on 4th & 1 after seemingly converting the try.  While something has not been right with NO, Ivory is certainly worth a look with that offense and opportunity.
  • The huge upgrade for Collie was warranted.
  • Congrats to anyone who picked up Hillis when recommened after week one, certainly paid dividends yesterday: 22-144-1, 7-36
  • Tolbert did alright for a fill-in but not great: 17-73, 3-17
  • Maroney, not Buckhalter, saw most of the work for the Broncos

Also, last week’s “buys” look to have been great…check out that and other posts if you haven’t done so.
