5th Down: Week 5
« on: October 04, 2012, 11:36:59 AM »
The 5th Down Blog is designed to help you, the fantasy owner, on whom to start, sit, and who we pick as a sleeper for the week. Each week, we will take turns doing a position for the week. Feedback is always welcome as we love to discuss football!

Check out past postings of the 5th Down for each week: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Quarterback - Philly Girl

Must Start: Joe Flacco :BAL-NFL: vs. :KAN:
The Ravens are playing a Chief's defense that has allowed 926 passing yards and 10 TDs this season. Oh, and they only have 2 INTs. While the Chief's have faced some top QBs to date, I think Flacco should be able to threat the secondary and continue this trend with the Chiefs.
(Other Must Starts: Phillip Rivers, Drew Brees)

Must Sit: Mark Sanchez :NYJ: vs. :HOU-NFL:
**Disclaimer** Each week my "must sit" has had his breakout week. Santonio Holmes is out for the season, Dustin Keller has not been visible, and an abysmal showing last week with an even stronger call for a certain No. 15 jersey to see more playing time...Oh right, and then they are playing Houston after playing San Francisco - a rough two weeks for sure.
(Other Must Sit: Michael Vick, Blaine Gabbert)

Sleeper: Andy Dalton :CIN-NFL: vs. :MIA:
Last week, Kevin Kolb threw for 324 yards and 3 TDs against Miami's secondary. Over the last three weeks, Dalton has thrown for 8 TDs. Additionally, if Cincinnati has any trouble running the ball, Dalton will have plenty of opportunities. Oh, and did I mention that the Bengals are averaging 28 ppg this season? I'd give him a shot in week 5.
(Other Sleepers: Andrew Luck, Kevin Kolb)


Running Back - ProFSL

Must Start: Michael Turner :ATL-NFL: vs. :WAS-NFL:
While I expect a shootout between the QBs, Turner will get plenty of reps and make the most of his carries against a suspect Redskins front-7.  Turner has been in question this season due to age, offensive scheme, and then his DUI.  Meanwhile, he has quietly put together a productive season and deserves the RB2 slot on most teams.  He is 15th in the league in rushing yards despite having less carries than most.  He has 3 TD in 4 games.  This looks to be a great opportunity for a 100-yard, 2 TD effort.

Must Sit: DeAngelo Williams :CAR: vs. :SEA-NFL:
Sooner or later, Jonathan Stewart is going to be healthy enough to put a decent stat line on the board.  Until then, D-Will stands to benefit.  The cardiac cats haven't been able to put together a very successful run-game which has put their QB into the territory of bad play.  It's a catch-22, but if D-Will is a starter on your team due to injuries, bye week, or lack of top RBs then avoid him this week.  Stewart is likely to be more involved, and the Seahawks have a staunch run-D.

Sleeper: Willis McGahee :DEN: vs. :NE:
The Patriots have been weakest against the ground game.  If it wasn't for the injured Bills duo they faced last week then they would have the worst stats in the league as far as a fantasy run-D is concerned.  McGahee hasn't exactly lit it up this year, but the classic Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady match-up is here, and the Broncos will look to keep a balanced attack.

Wide Receiver - JMACisBACK

Must Start: Brandon Marshall :CHI: vs. :JAC:
He and Cutler hooked up early and often last week. Look for them to do it again vs an anemic JAX def. B Marsh should put up 7-8 catches again with over 100 yards and a score.

Must Sit: Steve Johnson :BUF: vs. :SFO:
I know they will have to pass as they inevitably will be behind, but  just don't see Stevie putting up good enough numbers vs this stout Niner DEF this week. If you have some depth please use it this week and bench Johnson.

Sleeper: Reggie Wayne :IND: vs. :GB:
Wayne has clearly been Luck's go to WR thus far and look for Luck to throw a lot of passes as they will be playing from behind most the game. Wayne should be able to snag 7 or more balls and put up close to 100yards with a score.

Tight End - Mike

Must Start: Martellus Bennett :NYG: vs. :CLE-NFL:
I'm all over Bennett, every week, and after a down week against the Eagles, look for him to get right again, at worst expect 60yds and a TD.
(Other must starts:Heath Miller, Vernon Davis, Owen Daniels)

Must Sit: Scott Chandler :BUF: vs. :SFO:
All the owners who picked him up after last week's game will be dumping him after this week. The 49ers Linebackers & Safeties are too quick and athletic (Viking game not withstanding).
(Other must sits:Greg Olson, Dennis Pitta, Fred Davis)

Sleeper: Tony Moeaki :KAN: vs. :BAL-NFL:
He looks to be rounding into form, and with Kevin Boss done for the year, he's no longer sharing time. Cassel needs to trust Charles and Moeaki before going down-field and I'm sure that will be the plan.
(Other sleepers: Rob Housler, Jacob Tamme, Kellen Davis)

Defense - Mike

Must Start: :HOU-NFL: vs. :NYJ:
Easy call here, the Jets really have no weapons as is, and now Holmes is gone..look for a few turnovers and maybe a shutout.

Must Sit: :ATL-NFL: vs. :WAS-NFL:
The Falcons have been playing well, their def isn't great,  and RG3 presents are real match-up problem for them.

Sleeper: :CAR: vs. :SEA-NFL:
The Seahwaks are flying cross country, and they haven't exactly been setting the league on fire with their offense, look for the Panthers to win this game and limit the Seahawks to around 13 points or less.

"They read their sports pages, know their statistics and either root like hell or boo our butts off. I love it. Give me vocal fans, pro or con, over the tourist types who show up in Houston or Montreal and just sit there." óMike Schmidt, Hall of Fame third baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies :PHI:

  • Brent: Well our new CMSAF Cody when he took over back in 2013 he said he was going to do 2 things, remove AC from being factored into the Fitness Assessment and fix the EPR system.  I heard he tried hard to remove the AC from being factored in (measure it, but make it a health indicator like it is), but he was overruled by someone higher (my guess is SECAF due to influence from someone with money like Tricare).  The EPR system is already being revamped signficantly.  Gonna be a much better system.
