Season to date: 19-16

 

Week 5 started out slowly and heading into the afternoon games the popular sentiments from around the industry was that this was a “down” week. Then the Broncos and the Cowboys took to the field, scored 99 points and an unbelievable 1039 yards of total offense. In the best game of the day, and the young season. The outpouring of fantasy points was simply incredible.  Denver prevailed 51-48. The usual suspects (Tony Romo, Peyton Manning, Dez Bryant etc..) carved out large chunks of this box score, but a few other fantasy options made statements as well as both lead backs found the endzone. So, what was a slow week turned out to be another week filled with production.

Here are some quick hits from all the games…

  • Darren Sproles is a complete hit & miss player on a weekly basis.
  • With the coverage on Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey has proven that he is an every week starter in fantasy.
  • Brady is making a habit of throwing off his back foot and dropping his shoulder which is killing his accuracy.
  • Eddie Lacy is now healthy I believe he is a solid RB2 in fantasy the rest of the way.
  • It’s time for the Titans to stop using Jackie Battle. He continues to not convert short yardage opportunities.
  • TY Hilton is still an up and down fantasy player who is too inconsistent to start every week even after Sunday.
  • Blackmon had a nice statistical game but his numbers were inflated due to really bad coverage by the Rams.
  • Flacco is struggling mightily without a second quality option in the passing game.
  • Brandon Myers is non rosterable right now. Myers is forced into pass protection on almost every down.
  • Andre Ellington is right up there with Darren Sproles & Danny Woodhead in terms of RB value in PPR leagues.
  • Romo is 5th QB in NFL history to throw for 500+ yards & 5 TD. Only he & Matt Stafford did so in a loss.
  • Schaub has thrown a pick 6 in his last four games which sets a new NFL record.
  • Danny Woodhead scored another TD this week but also lost a fumble & failed to convert from the 1 yard line.
  • Geno Smith played a near-perfect game in Monday night’s stunning 30-28 victory over the Falcons.

For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions (over 20 from your QB; more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense). This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

 

Here are the basic league settings that our predictions are based on…

We told you to start Josh Gordon and he lived up to our expectations, catching  four passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in Cleveland’s Week 5 win over the Bills. Gordon’s biggest play of the night was the one he didn’t make, as he committed a brutal drop on what could have been an 80-plus yard touchdown on his first target. He partly atoned by whipping CB Aaron Williams’ single coverage for a 37-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but also muffed a gimme screen pass. Nevertheless, Gordon’s talent continues to stick out like a sore thumb. He’s a special, if young and inconsistent, player. It could dent his 2013 prospects if Brandon Weeden takes over for Brian Hoyer (knee) long-term, but Weeden didn’t exactly destroy Gordon’s fantasy value as a rookie.

 

We went out on a limb and recommended you start Robert Woods. He had a good game, and we consider him a hit pick because he had five passes for 64 yards in Buffalo’s Week 5 loss to the Browns. The five catches were a new season high for the second-round pick, though he’s now cleared 64 yards in three of his past four games. Woods has proven thoroughly competent as a rookie, running strong routes and displaying good hands.

 

The Rams used 17 points in the second quarter and 10 more in the fourth to run away from the Jaguars on Sunday from St. Louis. The Rams DST gave up 363 total yards to the Jaguars in the Week 5 win, but surrendered just 20 points. The play of the game for the Rams DST was Matt Giordano’s 82-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter for St. Louis’ first score. That made it 7-7 as the Rams never looked back. The Rams DST finished with three turnovers forced as Blaine Gabbert threw two interceptions and Clay Harbor lost a fumble in the game. The Rams DST finished with two sacks of Gabbert in the game and couldn’t take down Chad Henne once he replaced Jacksonville’s starting QB. here are their stats for week 5:

We thought you should start returning RB Eddie Lacy. And while he rushed 23 times for 99 yards in Green Bay’s Week 5 win over the Lions he didn’t get you above the threshold. Seeing his first extended action since Week 1, Lacy ran with power, getting what was blocked and occasionally more in a surprisingly defensively-minded game. Lacy gained at least three yards on 18 of his 23 carries. This is not a man who gets stopped on first contact. He just missed a bonus for a 100-yard rusher. Still, it was a solid day for the rookie, who continues to improve. He is a solid low-end RB2 or flex option in most formats, and a must-have in long-term dynasty leagues.

 

If Woods was a Hit, the pick to bench Owen Daniels was a miss as he caught six passes for 60 yards in Week 5 versus San Francisco. Daniels led the team in both categories as he saw nine targets, one behind Andre Johnson for the team lead there. Matt Schaub is in love with checking down to his tight ends, making Daniels a weekly high-end TE2 with upside.

 

We were way off telling you to bench T.Y. Hilton. He caught five passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns as the Colts outlasted the Seahawks 34-28 in Week 5. Great things happen when the Colts are committed to getting Hilton the ball, and he put on a clinic Sunday in the coverage of Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner on the perimeter. After a 12-0 deficit, Hilton got Indy back in the game with a 73-yard touchdown bomb, and secured another 29-yard score over the top versus Browner down the left sideline. Hilton has been highly inconsistent in the box score this year, and will remain a boom-or-bust WR3 play next Monday night at San Diego.

 

Another player we told you to bench was Mike Wallace. He had a monster 1st half with seven catches for 105 yards and in Sunday’s Week 5 loss to Baltimore. Wallace connected with Tannehill on multiple deep passes in that first half and led the team with 16 targets. However, he continues to be used as strictly an outside receiver and had two bad drops. After being outperformed by Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson in consecutive weeks, he was back to being the clear No. 1 option in the passing game.
