Here we are at week 11 of our sleeper challenge and it's looking like a two man race between Ryan and Bill with yours truly hanging back in 3rd place...Not sure what the exact standings are but they are very close between Ryan and Bill. Again we encourage you to add your picks in the comments section. Below are each writer's picks with some added comments.

Show's Picks

Brad Smith WR - J-E-T-S..JETS JETS JETS! (owned in 3% of yahoo leagues)
The Jets are facing a terrible Texans defense and Smith will get plenty of touches out of the slot and in the Wildcat to make him a viable fantasy sleeper this week. He's not going to put up jaw dropping numbers, but he could give you a sneaky flex play in some deeper leagues because of his matchup.

Nate Burleson is a talented WR who is toiling away in Detroit opposite one of the most dynamic athletes in the NFL in Calvin Johnson. I like Nate Dog to shine this week vs a secondary that everyone has taken apart up to this point...yes we are talking about America's secondary, your Dallas Cowboys. Nate is only owned in 18% of leagues because he takes such a back seat to CJ. There's plenty to go around this week and though they may not win the game...the Lions will get points on the board and Burleson should be involved.

DeadheadBill's Picks

Jason Avant(owned in 3% of leagues)

Though Avant isnt one of the top few targets in Philly he's every bit as usable as any #3 WR in the NFL with Vick playing at the level he is. He could put up inconsistent numbers from week to week, but in a possible shootout with the Giants I like him as a deep league flex play.
Projections: 4-5 catches for 60-70 yards and a possible score

Brandon Gibson(owned in 2% of leagues)

In an attempt to troll a little deeper this week I decided to roll with Brandon Gibson over some surer options out there--but I do think he'll be a decent start at home. The fact that the Rams could find themselves playing from behind against a high powered Falcons offense bodes well for some decent garbage time numbers at least. Sam Bradford seems to trust him, so I will as well!
Prediction: 5-6 catches for 70-80 yards and a score

Ryan's Picks

Well I seem to have a man crush on TEs in this pickem thing. I'll start my picks this week by following that trend.

Ben Watson - TE - CLV - Well this is a 2 fold pick. Jacksonville LBs are terrible at covering TEs and Watson is Colt McCoys go to guy. Assuming that the Browns WRs play up to their abilities (and if their initials aren't M.M. or J.C. they don't have much ability) then I expect Colt to dump it down to Ben a bunch. Look for 6 catches for 72 yards and a TD.

Reaching deep again : Seyi Ajirotutu - Hell I can't pronounce his name or spell it, so thank god for copy and paste. However, he is a talented young WR who happens to play on the same team as a certain strong armed QB with the initials P.R. and I don't mean Patrick Ramsey. Look for Seyi to really step up and show he is a valued weapon and a reason not to over pay Mr. Holdout. I see 5 catches for 105 yards and a TD in his future.

Well there ya have it...for once this week I like my picks better than my fellow writer's, but knowing my luck the result will be the same. Goodluck fellaz
