Every week there is a player that puts up a game out of nowhere, it might be a starter bursting out of a slump or maybe a reserve guy who has increasingly gotten more looks each week. Injuries to opposing defenses can play a part in a bump in production as can injuries to an offense. Last week we saw Andre Johnson blow up, Zac Stacy shredded the Titans, and Jason Campbell looked like a solid starter not a backup in Cleveland. Fantasy sleepers can be hard to predict but I have a good feeling about these players this week.
Jay Cutler vs Detroit
The quarterback is listed as probable after missing some games to a groin injury. At the moment he is also only owned in 50% of yahoo leagues which is surprising because he was the No. 6 Fantasy QB before he was injured. Bottom line, Cutler was putting up solid fantasy numbers before he was out and could continue that against a suspect Lions secondary.
