Fantasy Football Rankings Week 5

Hey everyone hope all is well, sorry for not posting my rankings until this late but since today was Yom Kippur I had a lot of commitments and didn’t have any time until this late.   


Last Week’s Bold Prediction: Arian Foster, coming off two nagging hamstring injuries, shows how healthy he is rushing for over 120 yards and gets at least 1 score.

Result: Finally I nailed my bold prediction. Foster was a beast last week scoring a TD and having over 150 yards rushing.

This Week’s Bold Prediction: Two Top 10 WRs, Stevie Johnson and Wes Welker, both get shut down by elite CBs having under 60 yards and 0 scores.

Last Week’s Sleeper Picks:

QB: Jason Campbell- Threw for over 340 yards but threw only 1 TD. Campbell had 15 points that isn’t a bad game by any means. Overall, I think this was a good sleeper for anyone who used him.  

RB: Arian Foster- Nailed it. I already discussed Foster above and how dominant he was last week.

WR: David Nelson- Wrong. For all of my good calls, this had to be one of my worst. 2 catches for 18 yards on only 3 targets. Not sure what happened here and I'm curious to see how Nelson plays against the Eagles on Sunday.  

TE: Ed Dickson- While he may not have had the greatest game from a fantasy point of view I think this was an overall positive for Dickson. He was targeted 12 times and I look for him to have better games as the season progress.  

This Week’s Sleeper Picks:

QB: Curtis Painter- I think he is a sneaky start this week. KC isn’t a very good pass D and Painter has played well in his first 2 starts and should score between 14-17 points.

RB: Isaac Redman- I think Mendenhall sits out this week and Redman is a good waiver wire start. Tennessee doesn’t have a bad run defense so I don’t see Redman going off however I do see 80-90 yards and a TD making him a fine #2 or great flex.

WR: Percy Harvin: He has been underwhelming so far fantasy wise scoring only once on a kick return. So while this may not seem like a sleeper I see him being benched in way too many leagues. Harvin has a great matchup against Arizona and I see him scoring not once but twice this week.

TE: Clay Harbor: The past 2 weeks Buffalo has been killed by the TE giving up 180 yards and 3 scores. I think this game is a shootout and don’t be surprised if Harbor catches one of the TDs.
