Some “Sleeper” advice for Fantasy Football Championship Game weekend

It has come down to this: in most season long fantasy football leagues, the 16th week is Fantasy “Football Championship Game” time. Granted, if you have gotten this far, you likely don’t need our advice, but hey, we’re here for one last bit of assistance involving the Fins, Bucs and Jags, anyway.

Just as a week ago, we take it as a given that if you have players like Jameis Winston, Jarvis Landry, Leonard Fournette, Mike Evans or the Jaguars defense, etc., you are playing them almost no matter what.

So, we have a few suggestions, all at wide receiver, that if you are need of a pick up at this position, they just might be available to help you. Here goes:

1. Keelan Cole, Jaguars – This one jumps off the page because of the Jags injuries all season at wide receiver and Cole has been getting more opportunities from Blake Bortles of late. He was targeted nine times, caught seven passes for 186 yards and a TD in last Sunday’s romp over Houston.

Cole has a TD catch in each of the last three Jacksonville games. He’s also averaging 111 yards receiving in those games and a gaudy 25.7 avg per catch. More than worth the pickup, if you are thin at WR.

2. Adam Humphries, Bucs – On Monday night the Bucs had pass catchers dropping left and right due to injury and Humphries was one of the beneficiaries. His five catches were the most for him since week six. And, in the fourth quarter, he caught his first touchdown of the season, too.

Humphries has been a target of Jameis Winston on third down and in the red zone over their past three seasons together. And he played his college ball at Clemson near Charlotte, where the Bucs are Sunday. He could have another solid performance on Christmas Eve.

And finally,

3. Kenny Stills, Dolphins – Call this one a hunch, but Stills might just be due for a significant impact play and/or game at the Chiefs Sunday. Coming off a season high 13 targets from Jay Cutler in the win over Denver three weeks ago, Stills has only been targeted 10 times in the last two games. But, even though his stat line read only one catch, eight yards in freezing Buffalo last week, he was actually thrown to six times. He and Cutler just couldn’t connect.

Stills does have big play capability and with the Chiefs secondary occupied with Jarvis Landry, just might be a surprise success in a must win situation for the Dolphins.

So, there you go. Good luck. Happy Holidays and perhaps one of those pass catchers will be an early present under your Fantasy Football Tree.
