Hitting the midway point of the 2013 fantasy football season, it’s time to roll off some wins and get into playoff position.

And in order to do so, you’ve got to have sleepers who come up big from week to week. Provided that your star players keep reaching solid point totals, key sleepers give an edge as the postseason nears.

Here, we have some favorable matchups in Week 6 that will help you get the upper hand.

 

Cleveland Browns Defense (vs. Detroit Lions)

The Browns are squaring off against one of pro football’s best passing attacks in Detroit this week. However, the Lions also haven’t seen a defense on Cleveland’s level yet this year. With rankings inside the top 10 against the run and pass Cleveland is excellent on D, and the Browns have only allowed two passing scores. They’ve also only allowed a 57.9 completion percentage.

In addition, Cleveland gives up a mere 3.3 rush yards per attempt and has recorded 18 sacks. Yes, the Lions are more high-powered than anyone the Browns have gone against so far. That said, with the talent to man up on the outside, pass rush and stop the run, Cleveland will continue its strong defensive ways versus the one-dimensional Lions.

 

Terrance Williams: WR, Dallas Cowboys (vs. Washington Redskins)

The explosive big play potential of Terrance Williams was on full display against the Broncos last week. Racking up 151 receiving yards on four receptions, Williams also scored and proved his size, acceleration and top speed is a competitive advantage.

Facing the Redskins this week, expect Williams to earn more targets. Washington’s secondary is a mess and is currently allowing a 67.4 completion percentage and has given up nine passing scores. Dallas’ offense just has too many playmakers for the Redskins to content with and Williams is becoming a bigger part of that equation.

 

Greg Olsen: TE, Carolina Panthers (at Minnesota Vikings)

Carolina’s offense is struggling right now and certainly lacks an aerial assault. For Cam Newton to find a rhythm once again, looking up trusty tight end Greg Olsen must happen against Minnesota.

Olsen has produced consistently well all year and leads the Panthers in receptions, yards and yards after the catch. Even better for Week 6, the Vikings don’t field the most dominant of defense. Already having given up 10 passing scores, the Vikings also allow a 65.2 completion percentage. In short, the more Newton targets Olsen the better odds Carolina has of moving the rock.

  1. John, at WR I have Terrence Williams, Josh Gordon, Alshon Jeffries, Randall Cobb, Justin Blackmon; at RB I have Darren Spoles, Doug Martin, and Danny Woodhead. Who should I start at RB1, RB2 and Flex; WR1, WR2 and RB/WR?

  2. John Rozum says:

    thanks for the comment Jamal. Here is what I have for ya.

    RB1: Doug Martin

    RB2: Darren Sproles

    WR1: Josh Gordon

    WR 2: Terrance Williams

    Flex: Alshon Jeffries

    RB/WR: Danny Woodhead

    I typically try to get as many RBs started as possible, simply cuz they can get rushing and receiving yards. You also have some tough decisions at WR, but it wouldn’t surprise me if all of them put up some solid points as each have decent matchups.
