We are in week 3 of filling in our 2011 Panini NFL Sticker Collection Album and the third week of the football season. Last week’s players to watch put together some nice stats. This time around we are taking a few chances, hopefully picking some sleepers who could have big games.
Her are the three players to watch this week
Ryan Mathews of the San Diego Chargers showed a lot of promise when he entered the league as a rookie last year. This year he has become a definitive red zone threat. With Anotonio Gates questionable to start, this could be a break out week for Matthews.
Robert Meachem of the New Orleans Saints is one of many targets in Drew Brees arsenal. Some of the focus has been on others so it would not be surprising if Meachem sees a few big plays this week as the Saints go up against the Texans. Both teams like to go long with their passing game and this game could be a high scorer.
Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots has been splitting Tight End duties with Aaron Hernandez. With Henandez hurt, there is a high likelihood that Tom Brady will be looking for Gronkowski when it counts.
