Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Anybody who watched the Cardinals last year saw that they needed help at the quarterback position. Considering their options, Arizona has to be happy with their off-season addition of Carson Palmer.
Here’s a look at some sleepers that could pay dividends in your fantasy league.
There wasn’t a happier team to see Carson Palmer leave Cincinnati than the Baltimore Ravens. For years, Palmer plagued the Ravens’ defense with precise passing and fourth quarter comebacks. And though Palmer isn’t the same quarterback he used to be, it’ll still be in the Ravens’ best interest to keep him contained for 60 minutes.
In their one, and only home game during November, the Ravens, who have captured 22 of 23 in Baltimore, host the 3-5 Raiders. There will be a very familiar face calling the plays behind center, QB Carson Palmer posted a 9-4 record against the Ravens while with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Ravens are 6-2 and in firm control of the AFC North. With Pittsburgh lurking and a meeting between the two days away, Baltimore will need to first take care of business against the Raiders. With the way Doug Martin performed against Oakland last week, Rice may be looking to dominate as well.
Big names dominate fantasy football drafts, but often don’t pay off. Check out these reaches and sleepers to get an edge.
