Fantasy Football: 5 Week 13 sleepers worth considering Titans' Mariota and Jaguars' Westbrook finally ready to deliver for fantasy owners By ARTHUR ARKUSHDec. 2, 2017 Fantasy Football: Realistic rescue workers in playoff-clinching weekWe wrote earlier on Friday about the unlikelihood of Jimmy Garoppolo and Josh Gordon being worthy starts in such a high leverage week of fantasy. So let’s discuss some other guys who’ve spent most of the year off the radar, yet not only loom large but are ready to help owners live large in crunch time. Titans QB Marcus Mariota ($7,400 on FanDuel) — QB22 overall, Mariota has totaled 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in what most anticipated would be the third-year pro’s best season. He’s eclipsed eight rushing yards once since Week 4. Why, then, should owners trust him Sunday? The Texans ‘D,’ that’s why. It hasn’t weathered the losses of J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus — not that any unit could — and has ceded a combined 12 passing touchdowns and 1,122 yards through the air in three road games prior to facing Joe Flacco.Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers ($4,500 on FanDuel) — The spector of Peyton Barber and not Rodgers being the dude exists, sure, but Dirk Koetter is coaching for his job and seemingly trusts few players on his roster more than Rodgers. Plus, in his past seven games in which Doug Martin didn’t play, Rodgers is averaging 22 touches and more than 91 scrimmage yards in addition to two touchdowns. Barber equaled that scoring total Sunday but totaled just seven yards on his five carries, whereas Rodgers had a more modest 37 scrimmage yards on nine touches after Martin was concussed.Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook ($4,700 on FanDuel) — It hasn’t happened as swiftly as he predicted, but the former Sooner has a team-high 9-76 receiving on 16 targets over his first two appearances. Neither of them came against a Colts secondary that’s actually performed admirably as injuries have piled up but is simply running out of bodies and may be forced to — gasp — dress second-round Florida product Quincy Wilson for his homecoming.Dolphins TE Julius Thomas ($5,200 on FanDuel) — Thomas’ best fantasy game of 2016 with the Jaguars came against his original club, so why not again? I love the old revenge narrative as much as the next guy, but there’s other reasons making Thomas a sleeper: his solid past month, when he’s secured 50 percent of his season’s 34 catches and 342 yards and both of his touchdowns on 23 targets; and Denver’s ‘D,’ down Aqib Talib and Derek Wolfe, and ranked 30th overall in defending fantasy tight ends.Raiders D/ST ($4,600 on FanDuel) — After Paxton Lynch helped Oakland snap the longest interception-less streak in NFL history, Geno Smith could be the gift that keeps giving. He’s taken at least three sacks in 15 of his 30 career starts, and has a giveaway on nearly five percent of his 868 career attempts. The Giants obviously lack consistency at the skill positions and competence up front, where the Raiders’ defensive strength resides with Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin.
