Fine, this is a stretch. Some might call it a “super” sleeper.
If we were into labeling every piece of analysis, maybe we would call it just that. Lucky for you, we aren’t, we feel start’em, sit’em covers most. This advice is for teams in deeper leagues, with this cat sitting at the end of your bench while you have other much more questionable options.
Check it: Morgan has been targeted 12 times in two games and has caught 10 of those for 188 yards and a score. He became only the third receiver this season to reach 100 yards against the Chargers in Week 15.
Meanwhile, Crabtree seems to have fallen out of favor with the organization and his numbers are showing it. He has caught four of his nine targets for 18 yards and no TDs during the same two week stretch.
Crabtree, though, will continue to draw the top coverage, leaving Morgan with easier match ups. And St. Louis ranks 11th worst in fantasy points allowed to WRs.
It’s a stretch, but I’d start him over Crabtree without hesitation.
