If your team is hit with injuries in week 4 or play in a deep league, we mention some touchdown sleepers who could help your lineup. We usually focus on the more fringe fantasy football play, but this week, we mention one very big name that our writers believe will finally meet some lofty 2011 expectations.
Nate Burleson- Detroit Lions – WR – I am a huge fan of Calvin Johnson and the Lions. Eventually Johnson will be double teamed and some other wide reciever will be open. Plus Rob Ryan loves to blitz which helps people get open.
Ben Tate – Houston Texans – RB – Everyone is pumped that Foster is back, but I still think it will be Tate that finds his way into the end zone. Reason being, Foster tweaks his hammy in a major way on Sunday. Sorry Foster owners.
Chris Johnson – Tennessee Titans – RB – Hasn’t frequented much of anything, but his bank account online. I believe he finally hits pay dirt this week thrice times. He is overdue and he knows it. (ITRZ Staff writer, Chris Mrnak also predicts a big game in week 4 f
rom Chris Johnson)
Anthony Armstrong (if active)- St. Louis is ranked 31st in pass defense.
Niners Michael Crabtree and Cards Early Doucet. Pure gut instinct. I’ve got gypsy blood, in fact my family invented the very popular device of the 80s, the Zoltar machine. I know these things.
Ed Dickson – Baltimore Ravens – TE – Last home game 5 catches, 59 yards, and a score. Think Flacco will be checking down more versus Jets.
Eric Decker – Denver Broncos – WR – We’re going to give Decker a score
, because number 2 and 3 receivers have scored in all three games this year against the home defense. Names like Brandon Lafell, Devery Henderson, and Dane Sanzenbacher have put up a score against the Packers.
Kevin Boss – Oakland Raiders – TE – If the Pats defensive unit do something well, it’s being stingy at the goal line. Kevin Boss will score in from close.
