5th Down: Week 12
« on: November 22, 2012, 12:42:10 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!



Check out past postings of the 5th Down for each week:
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 |11

Quarterback - JMAC

Must Start: Matt Stafford :DET-NFL: vs :HOU-NFL:
A usually solid DEF in the Texans got torched by Chad frickin Henne last week. Look for Stafford to have a big game on Turkey day to the tune of 350 yards with 2-3 td's as well
(other must starts: Andy Dalton, Andrew Luck)

Must Sit: Joe Flacco :BAL-NFL: vs :SDG:
Flacco is garbage away from home, matchup suggest to play the man but SD has flashes of a respectable def in spurts, and I see Rice running rampant vs SD this week.
(other must sits: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jay Cutler

Sleeper: Chad Henne :JAC:  vs :TEN:
Tennesse is not overly impressive on defense and Henne has a hot hand , it seems :). Give him a go this week as the match up is very user friendly this week.
(other sleepers: Mark Sanchez

Running Back - Mike

Must Start: Doug Martin :TAM: vs. :ATL-NFL:
The Falcons have been getting pounded on the ground, and with Martin coming into his own, look for a big day.
(other must starts: Chris Johnson, Frank Gore, C.J. Spiller)

Must Sit: LeSean McCoy :PHI-NFL: vs :CAR:
Too many reasons not to start Shady this week, the game isn't til Moday, maybe he starts, maybe he doesn't, the Panthers front 7 has been playing better, and the Eagles still won't commit to the run.
(other must sits:Michael Turner, Miquel LaShoure, Alfred Morris)

Sleeper: Ronnie Hillman :DEN: vs :KAN:
The job is his, and he should have a nice game against the Chiefs, I love him even more in PPR formats.
(other sleepers: James Starks, Beanie Wells, Marcel Reece)

Wide Receivers - Eric

Must Start: Dez Bryant :DAL: vs :WAS-NFL:
The Redskins D has allowed 11TD and less than 200 yds 4x. Bryant had a huge week last week and 2 straight weeks with a TD. The Skins are the 29th ranked defense and with Murray still out, Romo will pass.

Must Sit: Vincent Jackson :TAM: vs :ATL-NFL:
Jackson has been on and off over the past few weeks. He seems to get a TD every other week and has only amassed over 100 yds in 3 weeks.

Sleeper: TY Hilton :IND: vs :BUF:
Over the past 3 weeks, Hilton has 12 rec, 201 yds, 3 TDs (in 2 games). He has become the new Austin Collie and a favorite for Luck. BTW Avery may be out with a concussion this week.

Tight Ends - ProFSL

Must Start: Aaron Hernandez :NE: vs :NYJ:
Yeah Hernandez was always a must start headed into 2012.  However his injury concerns have been a problem for fantasy GMs this year.  Well the GRONK is out and Aaron is playing unless he chokes on a turkey leg.

Must Sit: Heath Miller :PIT-NFL: vs :CLE-NFL:
Miller must been one of the best this year but that was with Big Ben at the helm.  Low production is now the norm with ailing QBs.  Plus, Cleveland is surprisingly one of the best at holding TEs.

Sleeper: Dallas Clark :TAM: vs :ATL-NFL:
Clark is a household name but times have changed and he is playing a tough-D; right?  Well, the Falcons are one of the worst against opposing TEs.  Start Dallas in Tampa.

Defense - Philly Girl

Must Start: New England :NE: vs New York :NYJ:
The Patriots defense is looking better and better and now play the rival Jets who have the most inconsistent play at QB.  Start New England and don't look back.

Must Sit: San Francisco :SFO: New Orleans :NO:
The 49ers are fresh off a dominating victory led by their defense.  This week they don't have the benefit of facing a backup QB.  They get the unfortunate pleasure of dealing with Drew Brees and the Saints.  Time to use your backup-D.

Sleeper: Carolina :CAR: vs Philadelphia :PHI-NFL:
The Eagles offense has been a turnover machine and therefore been a fantasy donors to opposing defenses.  The Panthers deserve a look this week especially if you have the 49ers defense.

Over 300yds and 3 td's is "limited passing"? I'm just busting balls, as I have been wrong with my SSS more than not.

Must Start: Dez Bryant - 8 rec 145 yds 2 TD's (33.1 in PPR)

Must Sit: Vincent Jackson - 5 rec 96 yds (14.6 in PPR)

Sleeper: TY Hilton - 3 rec 33 yds 1 TD (18.3 in PPR)


If Hilton didnt catch a TD, him and V-Jax would have been swapped.

  • 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.

  • 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
