Found November 27, 2012 on Kramerica Sports:
Last weeks sleepers performed well, and hopefully helped lead your fantasy team to a win. This week is a crucial week for those still in a playoff chase. Here are some players that can surprise and help lead a team to victory. Quarterback Chad Henne, Miami Dolphins. Henne threw for multiple scores for the 2nd straight week. He also went 17 of 26 for 261 yards and finished with a passer rating of 108. The Jaguars finally appear to have a passing attack with Henne at the helm. This week he goes against the Bills who rank 18th against the pass, currently allowing 233.3 passing yards per game. The Bills though have allowed 20 passes through the air, and have been getting very shaky corner back play outside of Stephon Gilmore. In a game that the Jags can be playing from behind, expect Henne to be the driving force of the offense. Expect around 15-18 fantasy points, with big game potential. Other Sleepers: Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden, Carson Palmer. Running Back Jacquizz Rodgers, Atlanta Falcons. This is not only the week to pick up Rodgers if available, but to start him. The Falcons are playing on Thursday night against the Saints. They are not only the worst rush defense in the league, but they are coming off a very tough game against the 49ers. Last week Rodgers had 10 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown, compared to Michael Turners 13 carries for 17 yards and a touchdown. The Falcons have also stated they want to limit Turner so he is fresh in the playoffs. The Saints struggle against pass catching backs, which is where Rodgers thrives. Expect him to put up around 12-58-1, while catching 4-28 yards. He also has the ability to break one out and put up huge numbers. Other Sleepers: Rashad Jennings, DeAngelo Williams, David Wilson. Wide Receiver Jarius Wright, Minnesota Vikings. Wright has played great with Percy Harvin out. This could continue this week as he and tight end Kyle Rudolph are questionable. Wright has a favorable match up this week against the Packers banged up defense. Everyone saw how badly their defense is struggling against the Giants, and will likely struggle again this week. Also good for Wright is the Vikings will likely be playing from behind and have to throw a lot. In the 2 games Wright has played he has seen 15 targets go for 10 receptions, 114 yards and a touchdown. That and the fact that the Packers give up 183 yards per game to opposing wide outs, and 12 touchdowns so far this season. Monitor the status of Harvin before starting Wright, but Wright has the opportunity to be effective either way. Expect around 5-58-1 this week. Other Sleepers: Brian Broyles, Mario Manningham, Davone Bess. Tight End Dallas Clark, Tampa Bay Bucs. Clark’s two game scoring streak was ended last week, but he still had an effective game. He caught 4 passes for 65 yards. Tight ends this season have done well against Denver this season. Clark is developing into a safety blanket for Josh Freeman and is a red zone weapon. He will not pile on the yards, but he can still put up an effective game for fantasy owners. Considering the shaky and inconsistent play from a majority of tight ends this season Clark is a good play this week. Expect around 4-52-1 this week. Other Sleepers: Benjamin Watson, Rob Housler, Dwayne Allen. DST Panthers The Panthers defense hasn’t played well this season, but have shown improvement in recent weeks. This week they go against the Chiefs, and likely will be hurt by Jamal Charles in the run game. But their secondary looked better against the Eagles, and should be able to force a turnover or two this week. This would be a one week flier pick up, merely because of the match up. Other Sleepers: Bills, Jaguars, Browns. Good luck in your playoff push this week! Hopefully these sleepers can be of assistance.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been a very bad team for several seasons. Their offense has struggled over the last two seasons while the defense has been equally as bad.

In the passing department this week, injuries opened the door for Colin Kaepernick and Chad Henne, each of whom has been terrific in two games with extended action.

Fantasy Football: The Jacksonville Jaguars Have Found Some Swag!

Before the season started, I previewed and wrote about the Jacksonville Jaguars, I really tried to find a silver lining that wasn't there.  Maurice Jones-Drew hadn't signed yet, so I tried to find a superstar in Rashad Jennings and when MJD went down I thought, "I am going to look like a genius" but that just didn't happen, Jennings couldn't capitalize...
