Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of Lester’s Legends under-the-radar players who could possibly pull out a win for you this week.

Josh McCown, QB, Chicago Bears

Josh McCown continues to fill in admirably for Jay Cutler. In three starts, he’s averaging 280 yards and 1.7 touchdowns. McCown should roll on the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikes have allowed 281.7 yards and 2.2 touchdowns per game through the air.

Ben Tate, RB, Houston Texans

Ben Tate fell on his face last week despite a juicy matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tate managed just one yard on seven carries. He did add five catches for 26 yards, which helped a little in point-per-reception leagues.

This week he faces the New England Patriots. The Pats have struggled to stop the run since Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo went down. They are giving up 139.7 rushing yards per game.

Kendall Wright, WR, Tennessee Titans

Kendall Wright is averaging 69.4 yards per game. He has averaged 81.6 yards in his past seven games. He’s facing the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have allowed 243.5 yards and 1.4 touchdowns per game. Wright had nine catches for 80 yards in the first meeting with the Colts.

Coby Fleener, TE, Indianapolis Colts

Coby Fleener is averaging 48.7 yards and 0.4 touchdowns in his past 10 games and 59.4 yards and 0.4 touchdowns in his past five. He’s playing against the Tennessee Titans. Fleener had eight catches for 107 yards in his last meeting with them. Five of the eight passing touchdowns the Titans have allowed this year went to tight ends.

Dan Carpenter, K, Buffalo Bills

Dan Carpenter is tied for 11th in the league in scoring with 88 points on 22 field goals and 22 extra points. He should be busy against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed 26 field goals and 33 extra points.

Cleveland Browns Defense

The Cleveland Browns rank fourth in total defense with 306.1 yards allowed per game. They have 31 sacks and 13 takeaways. The Browns face the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags rank last in total offense with 283 yards per game and scoring offense with 12.9 points per game. They have allowed 37 sacks and have 19 turnovers.
