5th Down: Week 16
« on: December 20, 2012, 03:50:39 PM »
This article was brought to you by Facebook Status where you can check your Daily Facebook Status when posting about :Commish: ProFSL!

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 | 13 | 14 | 15

Quarterback - Billy

Must Start: Tom Brady :NE: vs :JAC:
Brady will look to rebound after throwing 2 INTs last week against :SFO: and what better team to rebound against than a horrible Jaguars defense. Brady will have a field day against their defense throwing for at least 250 yards and 2 TDs.

Must Sit: Russell Wilson :SEA-NFL: vs :SFO:
Wilson has been impressive thus far but will hit a wall known as the 49ers defense this weekend. The 49ers don't give up a lot of yards to opposing offenses and that should continue this weekend.

Sleeper: Greg McElroy :NYJ: vs :SDG:
McElroy gets the nod this week over Mark Sanchez against an underachieving Chargers team. He won't light it up but could still have a solid game against San Diego

Running Back - JMAC

Must Start: Adrian Peterson :MIN-NFL: vs :HOU-NFL:
IS there any doubt that he is THE must start player period at this stage. Chip on his shoulder and going for the record. Over 1300 yards in his last 8 games, enough said. He will do what he does, period!!!!
Other Must Starts- Alfred Morris, WAS vs PHI, CJ Spiller, BUF vs MIA

Must Sit: Chris Johnson :TEN: vs :GB:
I know he looked to have a good game last week but that one 94 yd td run was all he did, other than that he was limited to less than 2 ypc. Look for GB to shut him down and keep on rolling.
Other Must Sits- Trent Richardson, CLE vs DEN, Beanie Wells, AZ vs CHI

Sleeper: Vick Ballard :IND: vs :KAN:
Had his first 100 yard game last week and this is a clinching playoff berth game for IND, so look for them to put up a solid game plan with Ballard getting his work in vs a suspect KC def.

Wide Receivers - Mike

Must Start: Dez Bryant :DAL: vs :NO:
88 has been living up to the hype as of late, has he finally figured it all out? Who knows, but he's fighting through injury, and making the big catches, the Boys are starting to click.

Must Sit: Michael Crabtree :SFO: vs :SEA-NFL:
On the Crabtree bandwagon after his big game in Boston? Well jump now, he does nothing against the Seahawks and their big physical corners.

Sleeper: Jeremy Kerley :NYJ: vs :SDG:
So the Jets finally decide to let the sound, yet vanilla McElroy play ball, it's going to be a good thing for the Jets pass catchers, even Braylon Edwards might make an appearance.

Tight Ends - Eric

Must Start: Tony Gonzalez :ATL-NFL: vs :DET-NFL:
This year has been much nicer to Gonzalez owners with 8 TD's and almost 900 yds. This week shouldn't be any different. The Lions have allowed 6 TD's over the past 8 weeks. Feel free to deploy Gonzo as you normally would.

Must Sit: Jermaine Gresham :CIN-NFL: vs :PIT-NFL:
While Gresham has been a solid option over the past few weeks, this week he has a tough matchup. The Steelers have been really good against opposing TE in allowing the 3rd least fantasy points. They have allowed 5 TD all year and allowed over 70 yds in just ONE week (last week vs Dallas). Look else where if possible.

Sleeper: Kyle Rudolph :MIN-NFL: vs :HOU-NFL:
Although Rudolph has been relatively quiet over the past few week, this he week he has a good matchup. The Texans give up the 6th most fantasy points to opposing TE's. 5 TD's over as many week and over 50 yds rec in 4 of those 5 weeks. Rudolph can guide you through a foggy Christmas Eve.

Defense - Billy

Must Start: Chicago :CHI: vs :ARI:
The Bears defense has fallen off as of late, but they should be able to rebound against a horrible Cardinals offense.

Must Sit: Seattle :SEA-NFL: vs :SFO:
The Seattle defense has been dominant this year, but that probably will not continue this week against the 49ers. San Fran's offense has been playing well lately and even the Seattle defense probably won't stop that.

Sleeper: Washington :WAS-NFL: vs :PHI-NFL:
Washington's defense has played better as of late (mainly in the 2nd half) but they will be going up against an Eagles offense that has made any defense look great lately. Last time these 2 played, the Skins defense held the Philly offense to only 6 points, 257 yards, and forced three turnovers.

  • Daddy: Hahaha me too my friend
    Today at 12:01:14 AM
  • janesvilleaces: Dexter Fowler to cards
    Today at 08:31:27 AM
  • snugerud: Hey daddy,  i hear you are a guy that likes loop holes..... ha ha
    Today at 09:10:43 AM
  • PigsRule: Ahhh. The FNHL Loophole Diggers
    Today at 09:42:00 AM
  • PigsRule: A very exclusive club
    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
  • PigsRule: Crow. Lets talk needs. DaL and Fla
    Today at 01:01:15 PM
  • PigsRule: I know you dont want to stand pat with those Stars
    Today at 01:01:44 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
  • halo99: nhl teams do that all the time with expansion drafts
    Today at 01:04:28 PM
  • PigsRule: :iatp:
    Today at 01:05:10 PM
  • PigsRule: Within reason :judge:
    Today at 01:05:20 PM

  • halo99: need to see how these guys develop
    Today at 01:07:35 PM
  • Jonathan: Not my fantasy. Lacks any fins  :P
    Today at 01:15:29 PM
  • PigsRule: Haha  noticed your preference
    Today at 01:17:02 PM
  • PigsRule: Must be the blond hair thing
    Today at 01:17:18 PM
  • PigsRule: I will take a guy that skates and hit anytime
    Today at 01:18:05 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, was happy he took Jesse and forced me to take Tkachuk
    Today at 01:18:49 PM
  • PigsRule: Matt is a great pick
    Today at 01:19:47 PM
  • PigsRule: I goofed with Drouin a few yr back. Wont be trading up to do that ever again
    Today at 01:20:51 PM
  • PigsRule: BB try again
