In this article KFFL breaks down the fantasy football sleepers of the week. We will avoid marquee names because players of that caliber are rarely benched, regardless of their matchup. Instead, we will focus on the players that make your fantasy lineup decisions stressful each week. Read on to learn which midrange to low-end players you wouldn’t necessarily consider that you need to get into your lineup.

Note: All statistics are from Week 11 to Week 14, unless otherwise stated.

Josh Scobee, Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts

Fantasy value: No. 1 or bench

  • Scobee has missed two of his seven field goal attempts in the last month, but he's 19-for-23 on the year. His only double-digit kicking points output of the season came in his 18-point Week 5. Bright side: He has multiple field goal attempts in three of the last four weeks.
