Fantasy Football: Sunday’s Surprises
Here some names of lesser owned guys who surprised on Sunday.
Mike Goodson: While this guy was a pickup two weeks ago, he has shown a lot in those fourteen days. Goodson has showed not only speed and elusiveness but also size which could cement his future in the league. Should be in a split when/if Stewart comes back.
Rusty Smith: He was not impressive but nevertheless the starter going forward for the foreseeable future. Faces terrible Houston pass defense.
Blair White: The rookie was impressive again, scoring two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. With Collie out, the Colts have used him similarly in the slot. Must add.
Jimmy Graham: The former basketball player from The U is a physical specimen and has put up back to back solid fantasy performances in the last two games with Shockey being injured. Brees has shown the confidence to throw to him.
Ben Obomanu: He took the starting job from Deon Butler and responded by making plays on Sunday. He finished with five catches for 87 yards and a touchdown. Mike Williams is banged up which can only help his stock.
Brandon Gibson: Has emerged has the team’s top outside threat and second best Rams WR to own behind PPR pimp Danny Amendola. Rams have three straight road games coming up but the second game at Arizona presents a good matchup for Gibson.
Mike Hoomanawanui: Bradford loves to feed the ball to his TE and has started to find “Illinois Mike”. TE is deep this year but don’t be surprised to see a late season surge from this guy or a couple good games.
Derek Hagan: Reemerged to grab 3 catches for 10 yards and a touchdown. With Nicks out for 3 weeks and Steve Smith out another month look for him to get more snaps and targets.
