Week 5 Jar Fantasy Starters

Alright guys, here is the week 5 Fantasy go to list.

Quarterbacks – 

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 IIIThis 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.

Running Backs – 

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.

Wide Receivers – 

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.

Defense – 

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.

Top Fantasy Players For Week Four

Top Quarterbacks: 

RG3 (Redskins) – Until he gets injured (knock on wood)  he is going to continue to produce, hes been a solid fantasy player and dont expect anything different this week.. Start him.

Aaron Rodgers (Packers) – He’s pissed, he had an awful game last week, they’re coming back with aggression this week and its all going to fall on New Orleans.

Tom Brady (Patriots) – Buffalo has bent over all season when it comes to passing defense. Expect the same if not worse this weekend. 

Sleeper: Fitzpatrick (Bills) –  The Patriots have let up some big yards in the passing game this season so don’t be surprised to see Fitzpatrick’s numbers leap this week.

Top Running Backs:

Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) – This dude is nicknamed “Beast Mode” and hes going to go that on the Rams this weekend. just the way the cookie crumbles.. start him

Maurice Jones Drew (Jaguars) – One MJD is back, two hes playing the bengals boom start him.

Ray Rice (Ravens) –  Rice is known to crush the Browns, and its at home… enough said. 

Sleeper: Frank Gore (49ers) – He hasn’t had a great start but hes playing the Jets who are like a hotdog in a hallway when it comes to RB’s this year.

Top Wide Recievers    

Demaryius Thomas (Broncos) – Thomas is going hard hes a physical WR, hes going to put up numbers especially against  suffering Oakland defensive backs.

Calvin Johnson (Lions) – Although uncertain which QB will be starting, Megatron will certainly shine against this Vikings D.

Roddy White (Falcons) –  Roddy is going up against an already lagging Carolina defense. expect a W for the falcons and some big points for Ryan’s main man Roddy White.

Sleeper: Percy Harvin (Vikings) – I think both sides rack up fantasy points but Vikings pull out the W. Percy Harvin is a go to against the lions and he’ll dominate his match up. Start him.

TopTight Ends:     

Rob Gronkowski (Patriots) – “Gronk love play Buffalo” he always dominates, he finds the endzone wide open and he will continue that.

Tony Gonzalez (Falcons) – Same reasons as Roddy White (above) Carolina cant contain. and the falcons will exploit that… Start him

Top Defense:

Arizona Cardinals Theyre playing the Dolphins and their Defense goes oh so hard. Start em

Dallas Cowboys – Theyre facing the bears, that should sum it up.. Ware is going hard in the paint… Start em.

Top Kickers:

Jay Feely (Cardinals) – Playing the Dolphins this week, think there is going to be a lot of field goal tries, hes good for all of em… start him. 

Robbie Gould (Bears) – This squad is going to be kicking a lot. Cutler can’t get it in the end zone and Ware is going to stop the run game, they will rely on FG’s. Start him.


And those are your Mason Jar week 4 Fantasy picks..don’t feel like you have to listen to me..this is suggestion, but don’t be mad when I say I fuckin told you so.
