For those of you playing fantasy football that use individual defensive players (IDP), a sack, interception or better yet and TD return can make the difference between winning or losing a close game. Finding a hot offensive player on the waiver wire is relatively easy, as you can just look at their recent play or stats. Finding a IDP to contribute that specific week is a bit tougher, as you have to not only look at how well they've been laying, but their anticipated individual match-up as well.

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams was a surprise starter this season and he has been well worth the gamble. One of the bigger corners on the Ravens, Williams has routinely been given the toughest defensive assignment the #1 receiver on the opposition. While his numbers are not eye-opening (45 tackles, one FF, zero INT), he has broken up passes on a regular basis.

Sunday, when the Ravens host the Cincinnati Bengals, Williams could very well be matched up on the Bengals rookie WR A.J. Green. Green is having an excellent rookie season, already with 41 receptions for 635 yards and six TD catches. He is without a doubt rookie QB Andy Dalton's favorite target, as no other receiver has over 29 catches in comparison.

Expect Dalton to look for Green early and often, meaning if Williams is marking A.J., then that could give him decent chances at the erroneous throw and perhaps a game-changing or better yet, game-sealing interception. Therefore, consider Ravens CB Cary Williams a solid choice as your fantasy football 'Sleeper of the Week.'
