Panthers Fantasy Sleepers of the Week

We are hip deep in the bye weeks and if you are like me you are scrambling for a decent bye week replacement for players like WR Larry Fitzgerald, Brandon Lloyd or Dwayne Bowe. In 12 teams like we play here at CSR the pickings on the waiver wire are slim and you should tread carefully. Now is the time to review the stats, look for trends and play the odds.

When I look at the Panthers match-up with the Falcons the usual fantasy stars, QB Cam Newton and WR Steve Smith are certainly good plays. I'm going to supplement those obvious picks with two sleepers based on the Falcons 'Points Again' Stats provided by ESPN.

The Falcons are the 3rd worst defense against WR's so I'm going to say this is the week WR Legadu Naanee finally puts it all together and catches more than he drops and logs is first Panther TD. I'm think 6 catches for 75 yards and a TD for a solid 13 points.

The Falcons are also the 5th worst team allowing points to kickers. if there is one Panther due for a good game its Panther PK Olindo Mare. I'm thinking he nails 3 FG's and a few xpts as the Panthers hang 30 on the Falcons. That's probably 12 to 15 points for Mare depending on how long the FG's are.

Agree? Take the fan poll... after the jump...
