Fantasy Football Sleepers: NFC North

“Fantasy Football Sleepers”

This division is loaded with athletes offering up fantasy value weekly. Fantasy Friends can fill their DFS lineups with Aaron Rodgers or Matthew Stafford. They present viable quarterback-wide receiver stacks in league play and Daily Fantasy Sports.

Minnesota Vikings

Sam Bradford is in line to start at the quarterback position. Even with Teddy Bridgewater battling his way back too full health. Bradford is a safe bet too start in Minnesota. With Adrian Peterson in New Orleans and Jerick Mckinnon getting the short end of the coaching stick. It is playing out well for rookie Dalvin Cook to have an impact sooner than later. Latavius Murray is the lead back in a competitive backfield. Moon Man is expecting this backfield to be a Fantasy nightmare all season long and will find options elsewhere.

As of now. Other than Kyle Rudolph for consistency in your lineups. Laquon Treadwell is intriguing. He looks good this off season and has improved. Bradford locks onto receivers he can trust. We saw this with Stefon Diggs (when healthy), Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph. Keep an eye on Treadwell’s progress and Diggs health.

Chicago Bears

Mike Glennon has the locker room behind him. That is good news for Bears fans and Fantasy Friends. Glennon can and will sling the rock at times. The Bears are deep at the wide receiver position. Cameron Meredith, Kevin White, Markus Wheaton, Kendall Wright, Rueben Randle, Victor Cruz, Josh Bellamy, Deonte Thompson and Daniel Braverman are competing for roster spots.

Moon Man is revisiting the 2015 seventh overall draft pick Kevin White! Cameron Meredith proved his worth last season and with the addition of Markus Wheaton. The Bears big three wide receivers are formidable. Fantasy Owners may overlook White since he hasn’t played much his first two seasons. Potentially scooping him up in the latest fantasy rounds might pan out for you in 2017.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers has his big three in Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. Geronimo Allison performed well and Jeff Janis has history with Rodgers. Even Trevor Davis has a chance if injuries arise? Moon Man was high on Martellus Bennett last year but he bombed. Bennett looked like he couldn’t run towards the end of last year. How did he get a contract? Due to those knee injuries, moon man is looking at tight end Lance Kendricks. Waiver Wire with Kendricks when the time is right!

Detroit Lions

A roster that produced for fantasy friends in 2016. Matthew Stafford lit the league up. Marvin Jones Jr. tore it up early, Golden Tate turned it on after appearing to be a bust, meanwhile Anquan Boldin and Theo Riddick performed when called upon. It should be the much of the same in 2017. Ameer Abdullah is healthy, Boldin a free agent and Eric Ebron is back once again with a high ceiling. Could this be his year? It just might be. Michael Roberts will be intriguing this pre season.

Moon Man supports Jared Abbrederris coming over from Green Bay and must focus on the correct pronunciation of the word “Abbrederris“. As a fantasy option who knows? Maybe an injury forces him into the spotlight. A backup to Jordy and the boys in Green Bay. Rodgers appeared to have chemistry with him but no burn for Abbrederris landed him in Detroit. Definitely Daily Fantasy Sports value here. This guy is hungry, in the right situation and a move the chains receiver. Similar to Anquan but without the mutant abilities Boldin had in his younger years.


As Always,

(Teams Going Off + Thoughts Flexed In) = Combination Lineups

May the Fantasy Force Be With You.
