5th Down: Week 11
« on: November 15, 2012, 05:33:24 PM »
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!


Look out fantasy GMs, C.J. Spiller is headed your way. / Courtesy of Getty Images and Rick Stewart

Check out past postings of the 5th Down for each week:
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Quarterback - Philly Girl

Must Start: Carson Palmer :OAK-NFL: vs. :NO:
The Saints' defense has actually been stopping the run but they still allow tons of yards through the air.  It works for the Raiders as all they do is get into passing situations as their team falls behind.  Carson Palmer could throw for over 400 yards this week!

Must Sit: Joe Flacco :BAL-NFL: vs :PIT-NFL:
This game could be a low-scoring affair leaning heavily on the run game.  The Steelers are without Big Ben and their secondary has been locked on opposing QB despite the lack of Polamalu.  It could be a surprisingly long day for the Blue Hen.

Sleeper: Mark Sanchez :NYJ: vs. :STL-NFL:
All of the drama surrounding the Jets' QBs makes this one a head scratcher, but this could be a statement game for Marky Mark.  The Rams have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing QBs over the past month.  The Jets could help their stat a bit, but the fact remains that their DBs can't stop opposing receivers.

Running Back - JMAC

Must Start: C.J. Spiller :BUF: vs :MIA:
Jackson is out with a concussion and any time C.J. has had a full work load he has had a BIG game.  Look for him to do the same this week even against a solid run defense in MIA. With the touches come production for Spiller.  I see 100 plus total yards at the very least and a score seems to be a lock - and that is on the low end.

Must Sit: Michael Turner :ATL-NFL: vs. :ARI:
He is aging at a rapid rate , right before our eyes, there are better options than Turner formerly the Burner this week... unless you want a repeat performance of his 15 rushing yards against a horrible defense last week.

Sleeper: Felix Jones :DAL: vs. :CLE-NFL:
Felix showed some of that old burst last week, so look for him to have a solid game versus the Browns this week.

Wide Receivers - Mike

Must Start: Darius Heyward-Bey :OAK-NFL: vs :NO:
He's rounding back into form after his concussion, and the Saints can't stop the pass.
(other must starts: Amendola, Welker, D Thomas)

Must Sit: Mike Wallace :PIT-NFL: vs :BAL-NFL:
He's been a WR2 at best most of the season, but with Big Ben likely to be out this week, I see the Steelers doing their best to stick to the run and the short passing game.
(other must sits: D. Bowe, C. Shorts, D. Bryant)

Sleeper: Donald Jones :BUF: vs :MIA:
Jones has been trending up for the last three weeks, and this week he gets a Richard Marshall free Fins secondary, I like 100+ yards and a score this week.
(other sleepers: J. Maclin, Titus Young, Andre Roberts)

Tight Ends - Eric

Must Start: Greg Olsen :CAR: vs :TAM:
Olsen isn't the most reliable fantasy option.  In fact, not much on the Panthers is these days.  However, without being a biased fan of the Panthers, I think Olsen could be in for a decent day against a suspect Bucs-D.

Must Sit: Vernon Davis :SFO: vs :CHI:
New QB in the mix for the 49ers and the top defense on the other side of the ball equals a tough day for V-Davis.

Sleeper: Lance Kendricks :STL-NFL: vs :NYJ:
This could turn into a shootout between two unlikely teams.  Kendricks hasn't received a lot of attention this year, but this is a game that bodes well for Rams receivers - especially tight ends.

Defense - ProFSL

Must Start: Redskins :WAS-NFL: vs. :PHI-NFL:
Rule #6: Always start a defense against the 2012 Eagles.  They are a turnover machine and Foles' decision making wasn't exactly clean in relief of Vick last week.  The Redskins are opportunistic and will look to get a leg up on the Eagles as the who's who of the worst in the NFC East.

Must Sit: Cardinals :ARI: vs. :ATL-NFL:
The Cards have been a top fantasy defense this year but a matchup against the high-flying Falcons is too much for them to handle.

Sleeper: Bengals :CIN-NFL: vs. :KAN:
Rule #13: Always start a defense against the 2012 Chiefs.  Kansas City finds ways to shoot themselves in the foot.  Their starting QB is Cassel.  The Bengals-D hasn't been stellar this year but they are coming off a big-time win over the Giants in which their defense was amazing.

    Today at 09:42:17 AM
  • cheesesteak: Fowler to Cards = CarGo trade to Toronto
    Today at 10:38:23 AM
  • Daddy: Haha, I've been known to discover a few in my time snugerud.
    Today at 11:17:42 AM
  • Daddy: More so to close them than exploit them. FNHL is pretty tight, they have learned over the years how to minimize or close them.
    Today at 11:19:54 AM
  • Daddy: Other leagues I've been in, now off-site or dead were learning on the fly. Rules were not so tightly written.
    Today at 11:22:13 AM
  • Daddy: Still there's Slackjack, The Patriots, then I'm on the list somewhere top 25 :)
    Today at 11:25:53 AM
  • Jonathan: Everyone, who is competitive tries to find ways to win. My comment had nothing to do with that though. I said Slack was one of the best at accessing talent in drafting and young talent. There is no loophole in that. Look at Colorado.
    Today at 11:35:25 AM
  • Jonathan: If slack still ran that team, they would be top 3 without a doubt. How is a Victor Rask hit still counting against the cap? LOL
    Today at 11:37:52 AM
  • Jonathan: I meant assessing not accessing.
    Today at 11:45:07 AM
  • Daddy: Agreed he knew his stuff
    Today at 11:50:19 AM
  • Jonathan: Derek Carr's MVP campaign gets kicked in nuts by Chiefs defense. Carr played like a poor man's Brock Osweiler.
    Today at 12:21:36 PM
  • snugerud: I have been known to exploit some loopholes in my.   Speaking of that.  I might be open to paying a team to take Dubnyk short term to protect him until after the expansion draft.  I would definitely pay a fee for this.
    Today at 12:44:58 PM
  • snugerud: ha ha ,, is that against the spirit of the expansion draft?
    Today at 12:45:23 PM
  • Jonathan: no, Jack already made it known his Flames would be doing same thing....... then he sold them.
    Today at 12:47:02 PM
  • Eric: Morning fellas
    Today at 12:49:25 PM
  • snugerud: i dont know if he had much to worry about with the flames goalies....
    Today at 12:50:23 PM
  • snugerud: bigger fish to fry
    Today at 12:50:31 PM
  • PigsRule: The loopholes are there to be used within reason. The moment someone goes out of their way to stick us with aton of eztra work the hammer drops. Simple.
    Today at 12:55:25 PM
  • PigsRule: If someone paid me to manually process
    Today at 12:56:01 PM
  • PigsRule: I wouldnt care how many time someone wanted to buyout and resign a fantasy player. But dont do it to show up someone else then cry to a site admin
    Today at 12:57:01 PM
  • PigsRule: Pretty sure FNHL is an adults only type league ... more fun for all that way
    Today at 12:57:33 PM
  • PigsRule: Snug. You can protect your player within reason. But if a team stashes your assets and they get a wasted out spec for their effort that would be vetoed.
    Today at 12:58:50 PM
  • PigsRule: Or Devan can be traded for a ton of good stuff and everyones happy
    Today at 12:59:34 PM
  • PigsRule: Several teams are in same boat. Van Edm Phi and a few others would offer up some goods in exchange for a starter
    Today at 01:00:29 PM

    Today at 01:01:15 PM

  • halo99: Agree with PR. You can always work out a deal with Vegas for him to take somebody else other than Dubnyk
    Today at 01:04:17 PM

    Today at 01:04:28 PM
