Joe Flacco and other sleepers in your line-up

Of course, sleeper is a nebulous term. Use the definition that works for you. Similarly, this column is what you want. Perhaps this week’s start/seat call or help with DFS decisions. Maybe you apply the information to over/under props.I’ll probably add the player as depth to my fantasy bench, but I won’t expand on it this week. There’s no wrong way to digest this piece

It wasn’t a legendary sleeper seat last week, but it did have some hits. Carson Wentz came in. Greg Dorch Scored. Tralon Burks Not off yet, but he’s still a moderately deep grab. tape is encouraging.

Meet the winners of Week 3.

I spent the summer conveying the splendor Elijah Moore teeth.And we gushed about a rookie receiver last week Garrett Wilson.

With those rising jets in hand, don’t we have to say a few nice things about Flacco?

Jets receiver room — Corey Davis Neither are bad — you can drag Flacco into fantasy relevance. And while volume drives a lot of that value, what is it?The Jets defense ranks last in his DVOA, so the New York offense will need a throw to catch up . The ball keeps him in the air for three hours.

I endorse Flacco as a sneaky Superflex QB2 or $23 paydown DFS option. We might punch some Flacco props again this week.

As bad as Week 1 was, the Colts hit a new low in a Week 2 shutout in Jacksonville.

Matt Ryan Not only on the back nine of his career, he may tee off at 18. Michael Pittman Jr. Off the field, Indianapolis’ passing game looks toothless.

Maybe there’s some sneaky bite here. Durin started last week and was a reliable presence in the loss as he posted a 5-79-0 line to seven targets. His share of snaps has nearly doubled since his first week. He was on the field 64 percent of the time at Jacksonville.

This role may stay or expand. Paris Campbell Showing no signs of being a bona fide NFL receiver, the Colts clearly don’t know how to unleash tight ends. Moe Allie CoxDulin is well worth adding speculative late-season value and could return profit with a modest $11 tag at Yahoo DFS.

Travis Etienne, RB, Jaguars (Chargers)

of James Robinson A comeback is fun, exciting, and glorious. And Etienne made some young player mistakes in his first two weeks. Jacksonville’s leaning toward Robinson cannot be ignored. He scored his 37 touches in his two games, while Etienne had just his 18.

But don’t throw your baby out with hot water. Efficiency is also important. Etienne’s distance per touch is his 6.6 yards and Robinson’s average distance is his 4.0 yards. Ultimately, playmaking skills like that should force his share of higher level time, or perhaps an Etienne-led backfield.

The Jaguars are a formidable contender in 2022, but they’re worthy underdogs in Los Angeles with seven points in the spread. Jacksonville could be in catch-up mode for him all day. Sunday could be the game that justifies why Etienne was so hotly contested during his season in the draft. Now’s a good time to tell your league mates “I want to get a running back” and see if he suggests a move to get his disappointing Etienne. See if you can time the market please.

Irv Smith, TE, Vikings (vs Detroit)

The Lions are now the NFL’s peak carnival, a scoring offense and an opponent-wielding defense. You want points, you got them. If you want fantasy points, get out your calculator.

Smith may feel like an obvious call after scoring a touchdown on Monday (and dropped his second long touch). However, given that he remains in TE18 for the year, there is probably room for growth. And Smith has his Yahoo DFS minimum of $10. That’s Liberty Square.

I Adam Thielen A fan and even an apologist, perhaps 32-year-old Thielen has finally entered a period of decline. This could accelerate what could be Smith’s breakthrough year.

Eagles DST (Washington)

Philadelphia is the team to watch right now.of Jalen Hurts MVP odds have dropped significantly. AJ Brown Wrecked by the opener, Devonta Smith It flashed in the second game. dallas goudart It cannot be stopped by traditional methods.flat Miles Sanders Scoring again.

I want to touch on this NFC East juggernaut, can anyone add from the paragraph above? Even with the brisk activity this week, it’s still available in 50% of the Yahoo League.

Week 3 is the Eagles vs. Carson Wentz. Washington’s offense has its fun parts, but Wentz makes a few mistakes each week, too. And add in the Eagles, likely to wait a while. A fitting year to paint the AFC South as a crossover his division.

Whenever possible, you want a DST that you expect to win. I need leverage and want to play lead. In many cases, it will be the Eagles in 2022. Let’s rip it.
