Week 12: Super Sleepers
The return of A.J. Green has resulted in Sanu becoming an afterthought in the Bengals' offense. He has five catches for a total of 43 yards in the past two games. However, Green and Sanu should both have their chances to gain some fantasy points against the Texans' defense, which is giving up the most per game to opposing WR corps (44.7). Although the presence of Green definitely has cut into Sanu's workload, it also diverts defensive attention away from the Rutgers product. This week's matchup should allow him to see enough targets to make up for a couple of down weeks.
With the injury bug biting tight ends hard, fantasy owners have often scoured the waiver wires for valid TE options on a weekly basis this season. Most recently, owners saw Julius Thomas and Dwayne Allen fall to ankle injuries, so here's another option for those searching for a replacement. While we must consider Clay Harbor in Jacksonville's tight end ranks, Lewis is the better option, especially in the red zone. He will be returning to the field this weekend for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 2. Blake Bortles will be working to develop a rapport with Lewis, something that could be forged quickly as Lewis presents a huge, dependable target at 6-foot-6, 270 pounds. Before being lost to injury, Lewis posted an 8-106-1 line over two games. Although Harbor won't vanish completely right away, Lewis is worth a shot against the Colts' defense, which have given up the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends per game this year.
