    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 13 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 13 edition!

    Week 12 bounced back from a poor performance in Week 11 as three out of four sleepers performed above projection. Including Nick Westbrook-Ikhine outperforming projection by 25. The season sleepers beat projections 24 out of 46 times (52%) and 8 of those 24 sleepers outscored their projection by 20 spots.

     

    Curtis Samuel, WR, Washington Football Team – 29.1% Rostered

    The Washington Football Team expected big things from Curtis Samuel. However, because of injury he has only played three games and has five receptions on six targets for the season. In his return against Seattle, he only had a 24% snap share. Instead, this week I would expect him to see a bigger workload. The second WR for the team only has 34 targets on the season, so I see them getting Samuel involved as soon as possible.

    Rex Burkhead RB, Houston Texans – 11.3% Rostered

    The Houston Texans are doing confusing things with their RBs. They traded Mark Ingram and cut Phillip Lindsay. So that leaves just David Johnson and Rex Burkhead. Over the last four games, Johnson has only had over 40% snap share twice. While Burkhead has done that three out of the four games. Burkhead has 30 carries in the last two games and could be a sneaky play against the Colts this week who are 18th vs the run.

    Ameer Abdullah, RB, Carolina Panthers – 9.0% Rostered

    Christian McCaffrey is injured yet again and on IR, ending his season. Most would think Chuba Hubbard will be the RB to own. However, do not sleep on Ameer Abdullah. Abdullah had a 49% snap share last game and has at least four targets in four of the last five games. He is more of a stash for PPR leagues but could get some good work against the Falcons in Week 14. They are seventh-worst in giving up targets to RBs.

    Abdullah and the Panthers are on bye this week, so he should be easily available to pick up and stash still!

    James O’Shaughnessy, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars – 2.2% Rostered

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are not a good team but there is always fantasy value to be found on offenses. Dan Arnold, the leading TE since being acquired from the Panthers is on IR. So James O’Shaughnessy is now the starter. In Week 1 he had six receptions on eight targets for 46 yards before he was injured. Last week he was already at 81% snap share and had five targets, and looks to continue to be targeted heavily.

    Conclusion

    Those are my top offensive sleeper candidates going into the Week 13 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 13.
