Although it looks like Frank Gore will start, the 49ers RB you want is Kendall Hunter.
This Week’s Sleeper Picks:
QB: Alex Smith: If you are a Big Ben, Drew Brees or a Matt Schaub owner desperate for a bye week fill-in Alex Smith could be your guy. The cardinals secondary gives up the 11st most points to QBs and that’s only because of the eagles performance last week (was inside top 3 before). Smith should have a nice game and between 13-17 fantasy points.
RB: Maurice Morris: With Stafford’s hand banged up I wouldn’t be surprised to see more running than usual this week for the Lions. Carolina gives the most points to fantasy RBs. That combination should get Morris around 80 yards and a score.
WR: Denarius Moore: Coming off a monster week and now gets the Antonio Winfield less Vikings secondary. Moore should get at least 1 score and 100 yards.
TE: Ed Dickson: He’s been one of those players who I keep saying will become good and finally last week he did. Cincy is a good defense so I don’t expect him to be as dominant but his number of targets especially in the red zone is enough for me to say he gets 50 yards and a score.
