This weekend there are still quality fantasy sleepers you can acquire to bolster your unit. This is especially true for wide receivers like DeVante Parker and Darius Slayton, who have excelled in recent weeks. Moreover, young tight ends like Noah Fant, are finally starting to emerge and assert themselves as productive fantasy picks. Surprisingly, there are two quarterbacks who are reliable alternatives to help your team if you’re dealing with an injured quarterback, like Matthew Stafford. Below are my sleeper candidates to help you get an edge over your opponents in week twelve.

Sam Darnold

If you’re looking for a quarterback in week 12, Sam Darnold is your safest bet. Over the past two weeks, Darnold has scored 20+ points in each game while recording a TD: turnover ratio of 6:1. This week, Darnold and the Jets will take on an Oakland Raiders defense that is giving up the seventh-most fantasy points to signal-callers. Therefore you can expect Darnold to continue his hot streak into Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill

Tannehill is one of the most reliable fantasy sleepers in week 12. Since taking over for teammate Marcus Mariota, Tannehill has played well, with an 8:4 TD: INT ratio. Consequently, Tannehill has scored 18.9+ fantasy points in all of the games he’s started in. Despite having a lower ceiling than most QB2 options, Tannehill is still a quality fantasy sleeper for Sunday.

DeVante Parker

DeVante Parker is a must-acquire sleeper pick in a lot of leagues. Despite scoring 10+ fantasy points seven weeks in a row, Parker is less than 60% of fantasy leagues. With his teammate WR Preston Williams out for the rest of the year, Parker is now Miami’s no.1 receiver, leading the team in target share and receiving yards. Parker has recorded 4+ catches and 50+ receiving yards in every game since week 7, and you can expect Parker to continue this progress into week 12.

Dallas Goedert

If you’re in need of a tight-end due to injury or bye week, Goedert is a suitable fantasy alternative. Goedert has scored 10+ fantasy points in three of his last four games this season. Dallas Goedert is going against a very generous Seahawks defense that is surrendering the seventh-most fantasy points to tight ends. With Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery potentially out for week 12, Goedert is presently the second on the Eagles’ target share list, making him a safe option this Sunday.

Noah Fant

Despite Denver’s recent struggles, Noah Fant has seen an uptick in his fantasy production since week 8. Over the past two weeks, Fant is averaging approximately 15 fantasy points and 88 receiving yards per game. Similar to Goedert, Fant is currently second on the Eagles target share list. Due to Broncos quarterback Brandon Allen growing comfortable with Fant, he’s a decent TE2.

Darius Slayton

During his last game, Darius Slayton erupted for ten catches, 121 yards, and two touchdowns. In two of his last three games, Slayton has scored 2+ touchdowns along with 50+ receiving yards. With RB Saquon Barkley dealing with injuries, the Giants offense will be forced to pass the ball a lot against the Bears. Despite being a highly volatile player, Slayton is a decent flex option, especially for desperate owners.

Chris Conley

Chris Conley is a fantastic flex option for most fantasy owners. Since week seven, Conley has seen an increase in his targets, while averaging 12.7 fantasy points over his last three games. Moreover, Conley has received at least seven targets in every game that Nick Foles has played in, indicating that Foles trusts him. Against a shoddy Titans defense that is pretty generous to opposing wideouts, Conley primer for a great outing.

Jay Ajayi

With Jordan Howard still not cleared to play on Sunday, Jay Ayaji is a decent fantasy sleeper. Over the course of 2019, the Eagles have been a run-heavy team, that ranks in the top ten in terms of rushing percentage. This means that the Eagles lead back should expect a quality amount of touches. With Miles Sanders mainly playing a receiving back role, and Doug Pederson claiming that Jay Ajayi will be utilized a lot, Ajayi becomes a quality flex option in the deepest of leagues.
