Five Fantasy Football Sleepers For Week 12

November 21, 2018
After the "Monday Night Football" classic between the Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs, we all need a good nap. Let's go with a Turkey Day sleeper edition. 

1. Mohamed Sanu, Wide Receiver, Atlanta Falcons

Points must be scored in bunches by Atlanta. With more attention being paid to receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, I like Sanu against the New Orleans Saints' No. 3 cornerback.

2. Cole Beasley, Wide Receiver, Dallas Cowboys

Receiver Michael Gallup could miss the Cowboys' Week 12 game, leaving more targets for Beasley. This is more of a PPR play, but with attention moving toward receiver Amari Cooper (plus tight end Geoff Swaim missing the game as well), you can do worse.

3. Theo Riddick, Running Back, Detroit Lions

The matchup isn't great, but with running back Kerryon Johnson most likely missing the game, Riddick should see 15 touches or so.

4. Taylor Gabriel, Wide Receiver, Chicago Bears

Gabriel was targeted just three times against Detroit Nov. 11, which resulted in ZERO catches. Meanwhile, receivers Anthony Miller and Allen Robinson each had more than 100 yards; Robinson grabbed two touchdowns and Miller one. Guess who the Lions will key on? I think Gabriel finds some room and leads the Bears in receiving. 

5. Bruce Ellington, Wide Receiver, Detroit Lions

Receiver Marvin Jones is iffy to play. Should he be out again, Ellington -- who caught six balls for 52 yards in Week 11 -- will once again be on the fantasy radar.
