It’s that time of the week to look at a couple of sleepers. I have looked for players under 50% start rate to help your lineups. These players won’t take the spot of one of your studs but could be helpful if you’re covering bye weeks or injuries. Good luck this week!
Clay Matthews, LB, GB. Start % 45
Facing off against the 23rd ranked offensive line in pass protection, and 19th in sacks given up, there’s a good chance Matthews gets to the QB this week against Chicago. Not a player I would want to rely on, BUT… I think he can dial it up and earn his salary THIS week.
Josh Jones, S, Gb. Start % 47
Morgan Burnett is out this week. Plenty of tackles will be waiting for this youngster. Last week he racked up 8 tackles! That’s a good haul for a safety. He should get snaps on most of their packages, and I can see a nice outing on the way. Low price to pay for a quality start.
Bradley Roby, CB, DEN. Start % not listed
Tommy Brady is coming! He will be tested often. The crafty Pats will get Roby isolated and throw his way plenty, resulting in multiple tackles. Only once this season was Roby(vs. Kansas City) unable to log at least one pass deflection. He should get at least one against Brady, who will put the ball out often. Another solid option for your playoff push.
