NFL Fantasy: Week Four Fantasy Sleepers
Week three on the NFL season saw many breakout performances at every position, some from well known names and some from not so well known. Listed below are a few of the not so well known names that can be added to your roster and have an immediate impact.
Terrelle Pryor, WR, Browns - Pryor had quite the game on Sunday, not only did he catch passes but he also had a few rushes and took some snaps under center as well. He saw 14 targets and turned those into eight receptions and 144 YDS. Until Josh Gordon comes back from suspension, Pryor will continue to see the bulk of targets. Even when Gordon returns Pryor should still be involved in the passing game. Grab him now and ride the wave. (Owned in 23% of Yahoo Leagues )
Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles - After his first two games, you could say part of the reason he was successful was due to the teams he played against. You can't say that now after Sunday, he carved up the Super Bowl hopeful Pittsburgh Steelers by putting up 301 passing yards on 23-31 attempts, two touchdowns and zero turnovers. The hype is real with this kid, so if your in need of a QB he's your guy. (Owned in 20% of Yahoo Leagues)
Jordan Howard, RB, Bears - With Jeremy Langford being carted off on Sunday due to a high ankle sprain, Jordan Howard stepped in and didn't look out of place. Initial reports have Langford missing 4-6 weeks, the other running back on the depth chart is Ka'Deem Carey but he is also nursing and injury. Howard's work load will undoubtedly see a big increase over the coming weeks, which will only increase his fantasy value. He's a must add this week so put those claims in now.

Zach Miller, TE, Bears - I had high hopes for Miller going into the season and after two underwhelming performances in the first two weeks, Miller broke out for 78 yards and two TD's in week three. He did so by being the primary check-down option for backup QB Brian Hoyer, if Cutler misses another week that trend should continue. When Cutler comes back he'd be wise to keep the big TE involved.
