    It can be hard to find sleepers each week. Let’s take a look at some players who could produce in the offensive sleepers Week 12 edition!

    If there is a last-minute injury, you may need to scramble to find a player to substitute. That is when this weekly article on offensive sleepers comes in handy. I use Sleeper's rostered percentage before the Thursday night game to look for offensive sleepers and use anyone under 35% rostered. Check out the offensive sleepers Week 10 edition!

    Week 11 I had possibly my worst performance with all 3 sleepers performing below the projection.  The season sleepers have beat projections 21 out of 42 times (50%) and 7 of those 21 sleepers outscored their projection by 20 spots.


    Austin Hooper, TE, Cleveland Browns - 21.6% Rostered

    The Cleveland Browns have been struggling offensively recently but Austin Hooper has been getting a total of 12 targets the last 2 games. The Browns this week get the Ravens and their 31st ranked pass defense that is allowing over 280 pass yards a game. The Ravens defense also is giving up 9.6 fantasy points per game to TEs which would be the top 10 for TEs if you took the season average.

    Tevin Coleman, RB, New York Jets - 19.1% Rostered

    The Jets had a big hit last week as up-and-coming rookie Michael Carter was injured so the top RB is up for grabs. Ty Johnson who has been the backup will get more touches but Tevin Coleman also will be more involved. Their next opponent is the Texans who are 8th worst in fantasy points against for RBs.

    Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, WR, Tennessee Titans - 18.0% Rostered

    Marcus Johnson was hurt last week and Julio Jones is on IR so there is still the receiver opposite AJ Brown open and without Derrick Henry, they cannot just run the ball. Last week Westbrook-Ikhine had 8 targets for 7 receptions and 107 yards. He has definitely disappointed in the past but the Patriots usually take out the main option so Brown should be focused on and Westbrook-Ikhine could have a good game.

    Zach Wilson, QB, New York Jets - 16.7% Rostered

    Zach Wilson is finally coming back from injury, he has an up and down season but with time to sit and study I think he will come out improved. The Texans are giving up 19.2 fantasy points per game to QBs which would be the top 12 for QBs avg in the season. This is a good 1st matchup and I think Wilson could surprise with his 1st game back from injury.


    Those are my top offensive sleeper candidates going into the Week 12 of the NFL season. With Covid protocols, you never know when someone is not going to be inactive on game day. These offensive sleepers could help you fill in your starting lineups for week 12.
