5th Down: Week 13
« on: November 29, 2012, 06:13:18 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 | 12

Quarterback -Mike

Must Start: Tony Romo :DAL: vs :PHI-NFL:
I rarely trust Romo (who does?), but it seems the Eagles have quit on Reid, and after being torched by Newton, look for Romo to pick the bones this week.
(other must starts: Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Eli Manning)

Must Sit: Philip Rivers :SDG: vs :CIN-NFL:
Rivers isn't a terrible play this week, just one that isn't ideal. The Bengals shut down the Raiders last week and have been getting better each week on defense.
(other must sits: Josh Freeman, Brady Quinn, Mark Sanchez)

Sleeper: Carson Palmer :OAK-NFL: vs :CLE-NFL:
Looking for Carson to bounce back this week against a depleted Browns secondary, and he may even look like the Carson Palmer of 2004.
(other sleepers: Chad Henne, Jake Locker, Ryan Tannehill)

Running Back - Eric

Must Start:  Trent Richardson :CLE-NFL: vs :OAK-NFL:
The Raiders have 245+ yds in 2 games and 12 RuTD's (2nd most in NFL). They have allowed 7 RuTD in the last 4 games. T-Rich has been pretty solid as a rookie with 755 RuYds and TDs, expect him to get 90 yds and a TD.

Must Sit: Chris Johnson :TEN: vs :HOU-NFL:
This one was tough choice to make, but looking over the Houston rush defense and they allowed their first 2 RuTD last week against Detroit. They allowed one 100 yds rusher (Chris Johnson). The Texans defense will be more apt to stop him and let Locker beat then thru the air.

Sleeper: Rashad Jennings :JAC: vs :BUF:
The Bills are the worst rush defense in the NFL. They have allowed 1300+ yds along with a league leading 14 TD's. Jennings should get a good chance this weekend.

Wide Receivers - ProFSL

Must Start: Steve Johnson :BUF: vs. :JAC:
Chances are if you have Johnson then you are starting him, but even I have a team or to that Johnson is 3rd or 4th in my pecking order.  For leagues that only start two WRs (and may have flex spots that usually go to RBs), Johnson deserves consideration still.  Readers, sit back and absorb these numbers.  Three straight games in which he has caught six balls amassing 271 total receiving yards.  He hasn't been scoring TDs like he was in the first weeks of the season when the Bills were playing bad teams, but wait... they are playing a horrible team this week!  It also turns out that Jaguars can't stop opposing passing attacks.  Start Stevie - that's an order. :agent:

Must Sit: Mike Wallace :PIT-NFL: vs. :BAL-NFL:
It has been an inconsistent season for the receiver who held out this past summer.  Number 17 has dropped easily catch-able balls in situations that would ultimately result in a better record for his team.  Now the going just got tougher as he hasn't caught more than four passes since Week 8.  He scored TDs in Weeks 9-10, but in the past four contests, he has only gained 110 total yards.  The Steelers' offensive situation is looking bleak without Ben and they are playing the tough divisional foe that are the Ravens.  It's obvious that you should bench Wallace and look for a sleeper like the following guy...

Sleeper: Jeremy Kerley :NYJ: vs :ARI:
A wide-out who hasn't scored a TD since Week 3 is a prime sleeper candidate.  Well, Kerley is coming off a 7-reception 86 yard game, and the Jets host the Cardinals this week.  Arizona is one of the worst defenses at holding back opposing WR.  Kerley may not light it up, but I wouldn't be shocked if he scored this week and got near the 100-yard mark.

Tight Ends - Philly Girl

Must Start: Vernon Davis :SFO: vs. :STL-NFL:
Fantasy GMs would scoff at the idea that one even has to mention V-Davis as a must start, but this is what we are dealing with lately in the fantasy world.  Sure, Davis was empty handed last week against the Saints, but that was just one week.  The matchup was nice, but the 49ers were playing conservative and doing everything just right to win.  Another great matchup for their receivers, especially TEs, is on the slate with the Rams.  Don't be a fool and bench one of your stars - start Davis.

Must Sit: Heath Miller :PIT-NFL: vs. :BAL-NFL:
I just want to echo the sentiments of our Week 11 5th Down in that you should be benching Heath.  Get another option as things just worse in Pittsburgh.

Sleeper: Logan Paulsen :WAS-NFL: vs. :NYG:
Paulsen did okay in Weeks 7-11 grabbing 4-5 passes or catching a TD.  Last week he was limited to only two catches for 11 yards.  If you are out of options and looking for a risky but high-reward play than Paulsen could be your man this week.  The Giants are one of the worst teams against tight ends.

Defense - JMAC

Must Start: New England :NE: vs. :MIA:
Patriots smell home field advantage looming and have been very opportunistic of late. Look for more of the same vs a rookie qb this week.

Must Sit: St. Louis :STL-NFL: vs. :SFO:
Kaepernick poses a tough match up for STL this week. He has great ability to create big plays and I look for him and the SF offense to have yet another solid week.

Sleeper: Carolina :CAR: vs. :KAN:
Everyone shuts down KC, so why not Riveras group in Carolina this week. I would imagine a few turnovers and possibly a def score from the def this week.

Rashad Jennings or Beanie Wells?

RB Beanie Wells :ARI: because the Jets can't stop the run (one of the worst)

I would go Maclin or Brown, with Maclin first choice.

Jennings or Rice I would go with, Wallace has been bad as of late and he also has Batch throwing again, wait on him till Ben comes back. Jennings is confirmed to play but I think if Rice plays he gets more points, tough call there.

Rice is the best option this week with injuries and bad play by Jennings and Wallace, respectively.

    Today at 10:47:31 AM
  • Gilly: there are guys posting just last names and than I have to go back to roster, check rules and than come back to the post to check the proper buy out amount lol
    Today at 10:47:58 AM
  • Brent: I think it is a child board setting.  The first transaction board never even went to page 2, but the child boards don't display as many.
    Today at 10:48:01 AM
  • Gilly: guess Im just being a lazy ass lol
    Today at 10:48:07 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I know what you mean Gilly.  Makes it harder when the contract is not with the name.
    Today at 10:48:22 AM
  • Gilly: or not posting positions, its just time consuming when I can bust out stuff faster when guys properly post is all
    Today at 10:48:48 AM

    Today at 10:49:21 AM
  • Gilly: yeah never me lol
    Today at 10:50:26 AM
  • Brent: Gilly, League Safe is charging a late fee for payments.  I guess that is okay.
    Today at 10:51:03 AM
  • Gilly: lol really, whats the charge
    Today at 10:51:37 AM
  • OUDAN: I hope league safe is better then sportsvault
    Today at 10:52:31 AM
  • Brent: $10
    Today at 10:52:45 AM
  • Gilly: is that per month
    Today at 10:53:15 AM
  • Brent: League Safe seems to be better, but very rigid in its rules.  Dosn't seem very commissioner friendly to fix issues.
    Today at 10:53:18 AM
  • Brent: I don't know, it just says late penalty $10 and adds it right in.  I don't even know where the late penalty goes.
    Today at 10:53:46 AM
  • Brent: I actually have another idea.  Maybe we just use League Safe for the funds that are there, then use ProFSL PayPal for the rest to keep people from having to pay a late fee.
    Today at 10:54:31 AM
  • OUDAN: Hmmmm I say back to paypal lol
    Today at 10:54:54 AM
  • OUDAN: Cant beat paypal IMO
    Today at 10:55:17 AM
  • Gilly: Im good with whatever everyone wants thats easier and gets it done quicker
    Today at 10:55:25 AM
  • Brent: Just read through some of their Q&A and people's comments.  Other customers are blowing them up with the late fee, really negative replies on there b/c of their late fee.
