Alright guys, here is the week 5 Fantasy go to list.
Aaron Rodgers – About time Rodgers finally put some fantasy worthy numbers up in week four against the Saints. This week, up against the Indianapolis Colts defense that has only two takeaways from quarterbacks… in only three games. Expect Rodgers to go 30+
Robert Griffin III – This week hes up against the falcons.. while the falcons D is tough I think hes going to have a field day rolling out of the pocket. All season long we have watched Griffin III climb in the fantasy ranks.. expect that progression to continue in week 5.
Drew Brees – Tough start for these Saints going 0 -4 … However with Brees staying consistent even during losses I start him. Hes good for a few TD’s and a 22 point weekend. Start him against this San Diego defense which has allowed almost 600 passing yards in its last two games.
Ray Rice – The chiefs have let up around 30 – 35 points to backs these past few weeks. With Ray not getting as many touches in weeks 3 and 4 expect him to get more bang for his buck against KC.
Marshawn Lynch – Beast Mode is going against a team who allows more than 5 yards per carry. Leaves space wide open for Tailback receptions if Lynch gets his 20 carries this week he will have a HUGE day.
Sleeper: Reggie Bush – Bush played strong in week four despite the rumors of a knee injury. If he gets that kind of time this Sunday expect him to off on a Cincinnati team that is folding to backs allowing more than 5 yards per carry.
Roddy White – Have to go with Roddy White. Having eight catches for 169 yards and two touchdowns,he had a solid Week 4. If that game is any indication, he’ll have even more in store in Week 5. The Falcons visit the Redskins, who rank 31st against the pass, allowing 326.2 yards per game.
Wes Welker – Okay okay, i know i am going to get heat for this but Welker is playing like old Welker and if that’s any sign then he will show up huge against the Broncos; Denver ranks 13th in the league in pass defense, giving up under 221 yards per game, and has allowed an average of 20 fantasy points to opposing receivers.
Andre Johnson – With Darrelle Revis out for the season, Johnson should be in position to perform, although Houston can rely on big numbers from Arian Foster I think this will be Johnson’s break out week.
Tight Ends –
Rob Gronkowski – Is there any surprise here? quickly becoming one of the most dependable TE’s in the league Gronkowski became the quickest tight end to reach 30 career touchdowns.. he is such a threat in the red zone. Against the Broncos in the playoffs last season, he recorded 10 passes for 145 yards and three TD’s as well as scoring in three out of four games so far this year.
Vernon Davis – We saw Gronk do it to the Bills Sunday, watch for Davis to be less of a rush blocker and more of a threat this week. Davis should be good for at least two TD’s against Buffalo.
Minnesota Vikings – Coming off a huge week defensively expect them to do it again, not on the same level however we are betting on at least 10 points. Minnesota is playing against a Titans offense who gave up two interceptions for touchdowns last week. This is a huge proving week for the Vikings..Give them the start.
St.Louis Rams – These guys are going to be the sleeper defensive pick for the guy that wants to take a smart risk. The Cardinals are coming off a short week, they have a running game that has lagged and offensive linemen who get tired quickly. Rams should get it done.
