Fantasy Football 2015: Week 11 Sleeper Picks
Taking a Look at the Week 11 Waiver Wire Trends and Sleeper Pickups
November 20, 2015
It’s Friday; you know what that means. It’s time once again for our weekly look at some of the trending sleeper picks in the world of fantasy football, and we’ve got a pretty good lineup for you this morning. This edition is for Week 11 as we try to navigate the byes and injury situations out there. Here’s a closer look at the stats.
Keshawn Martin, WR, New England Patriots: Anyone on the receiving end of a Tom Brady pass deserves a look, with Martin included. He’s had some injury issues this year, but should have a pretty decent role in the offense once he’s healthy.
Assuming Martin plays this weekend against the Bills, you can expect him to get at least a few looks. He’s a different type of receiver than Danny Amendola, and could make a name for himself.

Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins: Let’s keep the WR theme going and check out Crowder. He caught his first career touchdown in Week 10, and even though his matchup is pretty tough here, he’s definitely worth a look.
Crowder has at least five targets in seven straight weeks, which means he’s cemented into the game plan. He gets a rough draw against the Panthers, but could find some room.
Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Indianapolis Colts: It’s a little surprising that Hasselbeck isn’t owned in more leagues out there. He’ll be getting a couple of favorable matchups while filling in for Andrew Luck, starting with the Falcons on Sunday.
Hasselbeck put up 15.38 and 16.22 fantasy points, respectively, in his two games filling in for Luck earlier this year. As a sleeper QB option, you really can’t beat him in Week 11.
Darren Sproles, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: Sproles is still available in about 70 percent of the leagues out there, and he makes a nice start this week. He got a little more involved in the passing game against Miami, and will likely replicate that against the Buccaneers.
Sproles’ stock climbs even further given the health of Ryan Mathews (concussion); we’d expect him to get around 15 touches. Sproles can work magic with those kinds of opportunites.
Crockett Gillmore, TE, Baltimore Ravens: We’ll wrap things up with Gillmore, who is still available in about 80 percent of the leagues out there. He posted his second double-digit line in Week 10, logging four grabs for 42 yards and a TD against Jacksonville.
Gillmore has at least four targets in each of the last four weeks, and he’s a potent red zone threat. The Rams matchup isn’t spectacular, but it isn’t bad, either.
