Week 12: Sleepers of the Week
T.Y. Hilton and the Indianapolis Colts return home to take on the Buffalo Bills in week 12. Hilton has been a surprise as a rookie this season, turning in three 100 yard performances -- including in two of the Colts last three games. The Colts offense is mostly a passing offense, as each of the running backs they have tried in a lead back role has been a disappointment. Opposing defenses have to focus on stopping Reggie Wayne, leaving Hilton in single coverage to make an impact opposite him. Hilton is still owned in just 38 percent of fantasy leagues, but following his last 100 yard performance, that number should jump this week. If you are in need of a WR 3 or Flex option this week, pick up Hilton off the waiver wire. Fantasy owners can expect at least 75 yards and a touchdown from the impressive rookie this week.
Cecil Shorts and the Jacksonville Jaguars return home to take on the Tennessee Titans in week 12. Shorts has been on fire as of late, averaging nearly five receptions for 90 yards over the past five games. Shorts has also added three touchdown catches over these five games. The Jaguars quarterback situation is up in the air right now, but no matter who starts at quarterback this week, Shorts should be in fantasy lineups. The Titans pass defense currently ranks 27th against the pass, making it likely that Shorts will continue his impressive run. Fantasy owners can start Cecil Shorts and can expect five receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown.Injury Status: Injured Reserve
