With 3 games on Thursday this week due to Thanksgiving, fantasy owners will be forced to make lineup choices quicker than normal. Elite offensive teams like the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys will be in action as nicely, that means there must be plenty of points to be had early.</p><p>It could be challenging to take a leap of faith by starting an unproven player on Thursday and chance acquiring off to a poor start, but there are numerous worth plays that ought to work out effectively, notably at broad receiver. Right here are three sleeper receivers who will be really worth beginning on Turkey Day.</p><p> </p><p>Laurent Robinson, Dallas Cowboys</p><p>Because Miles Austin went down with an injury, wide receiver Laurent Robinson has produced into Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's go-to guy. Even though his yardage numbers are a bit inconsistent, Robinson has at least a single score in 4 straight video games and five total touchdowns throughout that stretch.</p><p>Regardless of Robinson's exceptional perform of late, fantasy owners may be wary of starting him due to his spotty track record. Austin will be out once more on Thursday, however, and the Cowboys undoubtedly will not be shy about passing on the Miami Dolphins' 25th-ranked pass defense You are not allowed to view links.

With most of the defensive focus going toward Dez Bryant and Jason Witten to start with, Robinson ought to draw single coverage and has a excellent chance to reach pay filth for the fifth consecutive game.</p><p> </p><p>Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens</p><p>The San Francisco 49ers have a track record for having an elite defense, and rightfully so as they rank 1st in the league towards the run. The Niners are in fact quite ordinary when it comes to defending the pass, nevertheless, as evidenced by their No. 23 ranking in that regard.</p><p>Due to the fact of that You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, the Baltimore Ravens should be able to pass the ball on Thursday evening. Anquan Boldin is going to entice most of the interest, leaving rookie receiver Torrey Smith as the primary beneficiary. Smith went off last week with 165 yards and a score against the Cincinnati Bengals and is capable of putting up monster numbers in any given week You are not allowed to view links.

With Ray Rice unlikely to have any working space, seem for Joe Flacco to air it out and attempt to hook up with Smith typically You are not allowed to view links.
