Fantasy Football Sleepers 2012: Malcom Floyd and More Solid Week 1 Starters
Week 1 of the fantasy football season has already begun, but there is still plenty of time left to adjust your rosters and make critical personnel decisions before the next 15 games kick off.
If you have a deep league with lots of starters, there is plenty of wiggle room to play matchups and hope that you can get big performances out of fringe weekly starters.
Let’s take a look at some of these sleepers for the opening week.
Malcom Floyd, WR, San Diego Chargers
How will Floyd fare in Week 1?
The San Diego Chargers WR has been a machine against the Oakland Raiders the past two years.
In his last game, the 6’5” wideout recorded seven receptions, for 127 yards and a TD. Back in 2010, he eviscerated the Oakland secondary for 213 yards and a TD on eight catches.
This guy simply comes to play against the hated divisional rival and should be considered a strong No. 2 option at the WR spot in fantasy for this week.
Rashad Jennings, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
While Maurice Jones-Drew has ended his holdout, Jennings is still in line to get the majority of the touches out of the backfield for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He’s unproven but has been a solid backup for a number of years now and will finally get at least one chance to shine this season.
Expect Jennings to make the most of it and put up career numbers that will result in his getting consideration for carries going forward.
Carson Palmer, QB, Oakland Raiders
As the quarterback of the Raiders, Palmer has had two of his best outings against the Chargers.
He lit them up for 417 yards and two touchdowns on New Year's Day 2012 and also strung together a two-TD, 299-yard performance back in November of last year.
With a full training camp behind him as the starting Oakland signal-caller, Palmer should fare even better this season.
Expect him to start proving he was worth the hefty cost that the Black and Silver paid in Week 1.
