As the NFL season hits its final quarter, there are still some super sleepers out there who can help your fantasy team. I really like a quarterback, running back and a tight end who can help you win this week.

Nick Foles, Philadelphia QB

The rookie will be starting the rest of the way for the Philadelphia Eagles. Foles is quickly coming of age—in his third start last week, he passed for 251 yards and a touchdown. He has a favorable matchup this week against Tampa and along with fellow rookie and running back Bryce Brown (no longer a super sleeper), the Eagles should put up a ton of points this week with Foles leading the way.

Jonathan Dwyer, Pittsburgh RB

This bruising runner is now the Steelers' starter. Dwyer is the type of back who gets many yards after the initial hit and gets stronger as the game progresses. Last week he carried the ball 16 times and scored a touchdown. I expect bigger production from him this week against a San Diego defense in total disarray.

Brandon Myers, Oakland TE

Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer loves throwing to tight ends, and Myers is a willing recipient. Myers dominated the offensive side of the ball for the Raiders last week against Cleveland, totaling 14 catches, for 130 yards and a touchdown. Those are Rob Grankowski- or Jimmy Graham-type numbers, my friends. I expect Myers to continue to produce Thursday against Denver.
