Todd Lokken from Strategic Fantasy Football identifies week 14 sleeper picks.

December 10, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
There are a lot of great contests this week, and picking out sleepers is very difficult. Strategic Fantasy Football considers a sleeper “someone who is not in a fantasy lineup every week”, according to Todd Lokken, company President. “A sleeper is not someone who starts every week who suddenly has a fantastic game. That is expected to happen. A sleeper is someone you plug into your lineup, and they then score some nice points for the week”.

First up, the Detroit Lions visit Green Bay to take on the Packers. While this has been an extremely frustrating year for Brett Favre and the rest of the Packers, they have been within a touchdown in almost every loss this year. So, despite the team’s 2-10 record, Strategic Fantasy Football is picking Samkon Gado to run all over a shoddy Detroit defense, and Brett Favre to get back on track as well. While Gado does have fumbling problems and Favre interception issues, the Lions are in such disarray that the Packers should have no problem scoring in this matchup.

Next, we travel to Minnesota, where the Vikings are licking their chops awaiting for the absolutely awful St. Louis Rams defense. The Rams are only one of two NFL teams to give up two or more touchdown passes in a game (the Titans are the other). As a result, expect big games out of both Brad Johnson and Koren Robinson, who seems to have become the favorite wide receiver in Minnesota these days. The Vikings, who seemed to be destined for an 11 or 12 loss season a couple of months ago, have definitely turned things around behind Johnson, says Lokken. On the flipside, stay away from the Rams Defense, as they have been manhandled this year, especially the last two weeks (by the Houston Texas and the Washington Redskins).

Finally, a few other players who should have great stats this weekend are Atlanta’s Warrick Dunn against the New Orleans Saints, Dallas’ Keyshawn Johnson against the Kansas city Chiefs, and the Tennessee’s QB Steve McNair against the Houston Texans.
