I Got You: Week 5 Fantasy Recap
We’re in 8 leagues. These are our thoughts week to week.
Fantasy Record through Week 5: 16-24
Cam Newton was on a bye, and Mariota did not do much against Rex. Cam was on a bye and Rodgers was taken aback by the stout St. Louis defense. Philip Rivers has established himself as a new starting option at backup, and don’t count out Jay Cutler. Conversely, count out Ryan Mallett.
Jonathan Stewart was on a bye, and Devonta Freeman was once again the man, but Boobie Dixon did nothing replacing LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams. T.J. Yeldon and Matt Forte continued performing, and both Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson Jr. were again productive. Melvin Gordon was better though still underwhelming, and LaTavius Murray is officially struggling.
Both Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal were out once again while Jarvis Landry was on a bye. ODB looked like ODB, and Allen Robinson balled out. Randal Cobb underwhelmed, but lookout for Ty Montgomery.
Gronk had a pitiful 67 yards. What’s funny is that still ranked him number ten amongst tight ends.
6-2 this past week means we continue to improve. Again, we hope to welcome back Martavis Bryant, and look for Ryan Mathews who may be available on waivers after the donut he put up last week. Tavon Austin was serviceable, but Nelson Agholor did nothing. Dallas, Oakland, St. Louis and Tampa Bay are on byes this week, so adjust accordingly if you have Jason Witten, Amari Cooper, LaTavius Murray, Todd Gurley, Mike Evans or the resurgent Doug Martin. I suggest Gary Barnridge, Willie Snead or the above mentioned Mathews. If you are starting Brandon Weeden, Derek Carr, Nick Foles or Jameis Winston, this week is your opportunity to find a permanent starter to replace them. You can most certainly do better. I’d look at Josh McCown.
