Hello NFLRUSHERS, I am back with a fantasy insight and an upset alert for Week 5. First I want to say that there are a lot of teams on bye this week so be sure to check your fantasy roster. You would not want to start a player that won't get you any points on bye week. Now I am going to give you some players that I think you should start and some players you should sit.
Start Em- Phillip Rivers: He is playing the Raiders this week and has been really good so far this year. He has not committed many turnovers and has been playing really well. I think that he not starting in many leagues, but would be a good person to start if you are unsure of who to start.
Sit Em- Joe Flacco: I am not liking the things I am seeing from Joe Flacco this year. Without Anquan Boldin and Jacoby Jones, Flacco has been having a hard time helping his receivers make plays. With 5 interceptions last week, and a relatively tough matchup against the Dolphins, I would sit Joe Flacco if he is on your starting roster.
Start Em- Jamaal Charles: I think that Jamaal has been playing good, but is due for a breakout game. I think that since he is playing the Titans, it will be a challenge, but I have a good feeling about a breakout game for Jamaal.
Sit Em- C.J. Spiller: The fact that C.J. is played Thursday night isn't good. The fact that he has a knee injury isn't good. The fact that he is playing a good Browns defense isn't good. All of these facts are saying no for C.J.
Start Em- Any Broncos Receiver: It just seems like Peyton Manning has been so good this year, I would take any Broncos receiver. I think that he has been masterful and he is actually on pace for 64 touchdown passes. I would specifically take Wes Welker or Demaryius Thomas because they have been finding the end zone.
Sit Em- Reggie Wayne: The Colts are playing the Seahawks this weekend and Reggie will be drawing a lot of one on one coverage from Richard Sherman. I think that Sherman will bounce back after Andre Johnson made him look like an average corner even though he had a pick. I wouldn't recommend Reggie this week.
Upset Alert- 88% of NFLRUSHERS have the Dolphins losing to the Ravens this week. I think that it just won't happen for the Ravens this week. I think the Dolphins being at home will just help the case for the Dolphins. They will also be angry from a loss to the Saints last week. I think that Joe Flacco and Ray Rice will both have bad games again and the Dolphins will win 24-20 in a tight game.
