Campana’s sleeper: New York Jets (Campana is 18-11 on the year)

Although I am a Jets fan, I do believe that at least three of the total wins I’m expecting this season can come in succession these next three weeks. I like what the young guys are showing in New York, and I think the return of Austin Seferian-Jenkins can impact this game, as the Jets have utilized the tight end position as much as I’ve seen since Dustin Keller.

Devine’s sleeper: Tennessee Titans (Devine is 22-7 on the year)

I’m going to go with the Titans over Seattle as the sleeper this week. That wouldn’t seem possible looking at this matchup on paper for the past few years, but Tennessee is a revitalized team that will look to push into the AFC playoffs this year. Also, Seattle isn’t a very good road team and the fact that they only managed 12 points at home against the Niners proves to me that there are a lot of kinks to work out for them before I feel confident picking them.

Leady’s sleeper: Cleveland Browns (Leady is 18-11 on the year)

Both teams have been very bad so far this year. Although they’re both 0-2, I think the Browns will get their first win of the year against the struggling Colts team, as the Browns will try to pick up the pace.

Decker’s sleeper: Los Angeles Chargers (Decker is 16-13 on the year) 

Despite being 0-2, the Chargers are a talented team. I see Melvin Gordon contributing heavily in this game and Philip Rivers will get a lot of help from his receivers, especially the tight ends. I’m taking the Chargers at home to upset the Chiefs.

Drame’s sleeper: Tennessee Titans (Drame is 19-10 on the year)

The Seattle offense has been in a major funk to start off the season. The defense can’t hold it down forever as great as it is. The problems already bit them once and they don’t play against the likes of Brian Hoyer every week. I expect the Jekyll and Hyde Seahawks to struggle against the upstart Titans.

Kass’ sleeper: Tennessee Titans (Kass is 20-9 on the year)

My sleeper is Tennessee. I think the Titans shock the Seahawks for one of their first signature wins with Marcus Mariota.

Layton’s sleeper: Detroit Lions (Layton is 20-9 on the year)

My sleeper is Detroit. They have a good defense and enough secondary help to slow down the Falcons’ offensive weapons.
