Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas had a career day last week with rookie teammate Julio Jones being bothered with a hamstring injury, and he will excel again in Week 11.

Douglas is one of several sleeper wide receivers who will perform well for your fantasy football team on Sunday.

This is the last week the NFL will have bye weeks, so finding sleeper stars for Sunday can set your team up well for the stretch run of the fantasy season.

Let's look at three sleeper WRs you would be foolish not to start this week.


Laurent Robinson

While Miles Austin has missed time in recent weeks with an injury, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Laurent Robinson has become a very reliable and important part of the team's offense.

While wasn't targeted much last week, but he made the most of his catches. He caught two touchdown passes as part of his three total catches last week in a win against the Buffalo Bills.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo can rely on Robinson to make big plays when called on, even in the red zone.

Robinson has 208 yards receiving and four touchdowns in his last four games, and is a must-start this week.


David Nelson

With Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson nursing an injury, teammate David Nelson is a good start as a bye week replacement on Sunday.

Nelson has a touchdown catch in each of his last two games, and has averaged four receptions in the Bills' last four games.

The Dolphins allow 256.3 passing yards per game this season, so Nelson has a favorable matchup against a weak Miami secondary.


Harry Douglas

Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was targeted 14 times by Matt Ryan last week, and he did not let his quarterback down.

Douglas had eight receptions for 133 yards last week in the Falcons' overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints.

With receiver teammate Julio Jones questionable for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans with a hamstring injury, Douglas should again be a big part of the team's passing offense.

Douglas will be involved in the Falcons' pass offense a lot on Sunday, and with the Titans keeping close watch on all-pro teammate Roddy White, Douglas should be able to get open against an average Tennessee pass defense.
