Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Thirteen

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

Another week of fantasy football is done and over with and with only a few short weeks until the playoffs start, owners need to seriously consider if their current roster is ready to not only make the playoffs but contend once they get there. The waiver wire is thin at this point in the season but there may be a name or two worth grabbing this week. Here goes another edition of Keepers, Sleepers and Jeepers.

Keepers

Scott Chandler- Tight End- New England Patriots- With the injury to Gronk, Scott Chandler should see his fair share of targets in a Patriots offense that has lost almost every playmaker they have. Chandler posted his first double digits fantasy points game of the season versus Denver and with not many options for Brady to rely on, may be a key contributor to not only the Patriots but fantasy owners as well.

David Johnson- Running Back- Arizona Cardinals- With injuries to both Andre Ellington (surprise, surprise) and potential comeback player of the year Chris Johnson, David Johnson is the next man up. He's produced when given the chance and now will carry the load for the next six to eight weeks. With seven scores to his name and averaging over seven fantasy points per game, Johnson is a must add to every fantasy roster and may very well be on some championship rosters come late December.

Sleepers

Seth Roberts- Wide Receiver- Oakland Raiders- Raise your hand if you heard of Seth Roberts before his week 12 breakout game. (My hand is not up). Seth Roberts posted his second double digits fantasy points game of the season in week 12 while catching seven balls for 113 yards and two scores. While it remains to be seen whether or not he can repeat that performance again, fantasy owners may want to scoop up the Raiders wide out before it's too late.

Vance McDonald- Tight End- San Francisco 49ers- For the second straight week, McDonald has found the end zone and could end up being a viable replacement for fantasy owners who lost Gronk, Eifert or Jimmy Graham last week.

Jeepers

Markus Wheaton- Wide Receiver- Pittsburgh Steelers- If you take what Mike Tomlin said at face value, this was a one time deal for Markus Wheaton being that Antonio Brown and Martavus Bryant were shut down most of the game. It's difficult to trust Wheaton seeing how this was only his second double digits fantasy points game of the season. Fantasy owners can expect Brown and Bryant to get back on track versus the Colts leaving Wheaton an after thought heading into week 13.

DeVante Parker- Wide Receiver- Miami Dolphins- While the rookie scored his first touchdown of his NFL career this past week, he's going to be difficult to trust each week with the anemic Dolphins offense that just cost their now former offensive coordinator his job. Parker may be in line for more snaps if Rishard Matthews is out with his injury but the Dolphins are a hard offense to start in fantasy. Especially with the playoffs right around the corner.
