Week 15 of the writer's sleeper challenge is here with Bill and Ryan still tied for the lead and of course me being 3rd. Once again each writer makes his picks along with a blurb on why they think these picks will hit.

DeadHeadBill's Picks

Ruvell Martin WR SEA(0% owned)--Seattle's wide receivers are currently battling injuries, so Martin should be able to put up a decent line this week. 60 yards and possibly a score should be doable

Carnell Williams RB TB(30% owned)--Obviously Caddy has plummeted down the depth chart recently with Blount taking over starting duties and the Crackerman(Ernest Graham)vulturing some goalline touches. With all that said I still feel in my gut he could get some run in at home against a banged up Lions team that snuck by GB last week but hardly looked great doing it. My guess is the Cadillac will get to open up the engine a bit in the second half/garbage time and should put up decent enough numbers as a emergency flex play in deeper leagues--just keep in mind there's risk involved.

Show's Picks

I am playing both of these guys this week, so I am rooting hard for my sleepers in week 15.

Arrelious Benn, WR Bucs 7% owned - Still owned in less than 10% of yahoo leagues Benn is a nice match up play vs. the Lions this week. He has alot of talent and is going to be a force in that offense in the coming years. He could be better than Mike Williams once he develops his NFL game and gains the chemistry needed with Josh Freeman.

Rashard Jennings, RB Jags 5% owned - If the Jags do what they should do they will pound the ball with MJD and Rashard and punch the Colts right in the mouth. If this is the game plan then Rashard will be an excellent sleeper for any team needing a deeper flex or no.3 RB play. Though he had a nice game last week he only had 5 touches so there is some risk involved in running out Mr. Jennings.

Ryan's Picks

Staying with my TE theme this season -

Rob Gronkowski - TE - Pats - Big target for the Pats taking advantage of a beatup LB corps for my beloved Packers. It's going to be a rough game for the Packers even if Rodgers plays and I look for Brady to feed his big TE, especially in the red zone. 5 catches - 61 yards - 1 TD

Bo Scaife - TE - Titans - Insert Kerry Collins into the lineup and instantly TEs everywhere are rejoicing (just ask Brent Celek about having a mobile QB - typically the underneath guy aka TE gets ignored). Collins is a concrete statue in the pocket - the good news is, he has good vision and can find people when they are open. He's had an up and down season but here I see an up week against the Texans D. 5 catches - 72 yards - 1 TD

I'd also like to take the time to wish all of our faithful readers a Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday for the politically correct and thank you for reading our articles. It's your input and comments and readership that keeps us writing week after week - Spread the Christmas cheer and then spread the word about the site. We aren't just covering football as I know there has already been talk about what kind of articles we can focus on for Baseball season.


Well said Ryan, and he is correct in saying that we will be hitting baseball hard this year with many experienced baseball writers and player evaluators. New chats, articles, and creative ways to get you the fantasy information you need to compete in fantasy baseball are coming your way. We will have comprehensive previews for every MLB team and divisions and numerous leagues and opportunities to get involved with all the great staff here at SFS.
