Week 5 Fantasy Football Preview

By Troy Jefferson

Start

Andrew Luck (Colts QB)- It’s not hard to have career days vs. Jacksonville. Luck is almost guaranteed to throw for at least two touchdowns on Sunday.

Robert Griffin III (Redskins QB)- RG3 has thrown for at least 320 yards in each game this season and Oakland has just an average pass defense.

Matt Forte (Bears RB)- Forte is one of those running backs that can do it all. The Bears running back has 55 rushing attempts and 18 receptions, he’ll have plenty of opportunities against the Lions.

Bernard Pierce (Ravens RB)- The Ravens have been noncommittal on the availability of Ray Rice but if he can’t go Pierce will have a chance to explode against the 30th ranked Bills rush defense.

Brian Hartline (Dolphins WR)- Hartline has been a model of consistency, catching at least four passes each game for at least 56 yards. The Saints have a much improved defense but the Dolphins receiver will get his regardless.

Jordan Cameron (Browns TE)- I wouldn’t touch many players from the Browns but Cameron is the exception. Despite the offensive struggles, Cameron has 20 receptions and four touchdowns.

Sit

Eli Manning (Giants QB)- Manning hasn’t played well this season, throwing just one touchdown and five interceptions in his last two games. Things won’t get easier vs. the stingy Chiefs defense.

Mike Glennon (Buccaneers QB)- Arizona has the 26th ranked pass defense but I don’t see the rookie quarterback exploiting that in his first start. I do expect a heavy dose of Doug Martin.

David Wilson (Giants RB)- Where do I start with Wilson? The Giants running back has had fumbling issues, New York is playing a good defense, and they might get down early and have to abandon the run.

Marshawn Lynch (Seattle RB)- The Seahawks could be without three starting offensive lineman and Lynch is averaging just 3.4 rushing yards per carry.

Nate Washington (Titans WR)- Washington was a pleasant surprise against the Chargers last week (eight receptions for 131 yards) but the Jets only give up 190 passing yards per game, I expect this to be a defensive slugfest.

Andre Johnson (Texans WR)- First, Johnson is dealing with a leg injury and secondly the Seahawks have the best secondary in football.

Sleeper

Tony Romo (Cowboys QB)- Romo plays the San Diego Chargers, who have given up the most passing yards per game. Worth noting, the Cowboys QB hasn’t thrown an interception in the last two weeks.
