Three. Three more weeks to qualify for your fantasy league playoffs. Not to sound like a cheeseball, but where oh where does the season go? One thing we can all agree on; we need a W this week! Let’s checkout some under the radar fantasy starts to help put your team over the edge.

Tyreek Hill, WR, KC

Jeremy Maclin is out again with a groin, meaning Reek gets another week of gobbling up targets out of the slot. He has 11 catches last week, and is the most electric player on the Chiefs’ vanilla offense. Expect more of the same against Tampa’s dismal secondary today at Arrowhead.

Quinton Patton, WR, SF

This is really desperate, BUT, here’s my reasoning. The Patriots are going to show no mercy after losing at home against the Seahawks in Week 10. The Niner will be playing from behind and forced to throw it. Torrey Smith is out, leaving Patton as the only deep threat left. It may end up being Jeremy Kerley who breaks out, but I like Patton for a big play TD in garbage time.

Dwayne Washington, RB, DET

If you remember, Washington caused a stir early in the season as a rookie who flashed in the big back role next to Theo Riddick. Injuries derailed that train, but Washington is now healthy, and gets the Jaguars lowly rush defense at home this week. Riddick is the obvious play, but I like Washington to get some clock killing run as well as the goalline touches.

Adam Thielen, WR, MIN

Thielen has earned Sam Bradford’s trust, especially near the goal line. The Honey Badger is out for the Cardinals, and I think Thielen finds success working out of the slot against Arizona.
