Fantasy Football: Week 5

John Law and Logan Hanchett

It’s week five, the standouts, sleepers, and steals have all been proved. So where does a risky fantasy owner go from here? Not the black market. Not IKEA. The one trustable source out there when it comes to all your fantasy football needs. Fantasy Analysts John Law and Logan Hanchett.

Waiver Options:
QB: Mitch Trubisky (6% owned vs MIN)
Mike Glennon is out as the starter and Trubisky is in, looking to prove himself to the Windy City.
RB: Aaron Jones (44% owned @DAL)
If Montgomery is sidelined for another week, Jones will again see heavy usage.
WR: Jaron Brown (34% owned @PHI)
Brown put on a show with 8 receptions and 104 yards last week, and the Eagles secondary has struggled thus far.
TE: Ed Dickson (3% owned @DET)
With Greg Olsen out for the season and the Panthers offense awakening Dickson is set to get much more production.

Breakouts:
QB: Jameis Winston (vs NE)
The Patriots defense has proven again and again that no quarterback is too weak to explode against them. If Alex Smith can do it, so can 3rd year sensation Jameis Winston.
QB: Marcus Mariota (@MIA)
Mariota and the Titans had a disastrous Week 4 but have a great chance to perform well against an identity-less Dolphins team that has struggled majorly this year.
WR: Antonio Brown (vs JAX)
After a frustrating game last week that involved being left wide open for what could’ve been a 50+ yard TD, Brown will be hungry for TDs in Week 5.
WR: Mike Evans (vs NE)
As we said before the Patriots D has struggled massively this year, especially against the pass, and an elite receiver like Evans will be set to explode.
RB: Carlos Hyde (@IND)
Hyde was productive against Arizona last week and undoubtedly has a Week 5 tilt against a Colts team that is a complete mess this year.
RB: Le’Veon Bell (vs JAX)
Bell is starting to heat up with two dominant performances in the past two weeks and should do well against a rough Jets team.
TE: Kyle Rudolph (@CHI)
Rudolph has been quiet lately but while teams start to pay more attention to Diggs and Thielen, Rudolph should be a good bet for at least a TD this week.

Busts:
QB: Carson Wentz (vs ARI)
Wentz has performed above average so far this year but Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson will be a tough test for the young QB.
WR: DeAndre Hopkins (vs KC)
Nuke and just about everybody else on the Texans had a good game last week, but will have a much harder test against the Marcus Peters and the Chiefs
RB: LeSean McCoy (@CIN)
McCoy is one of the most inconsistent running backs in the league and will be most likely be shut down by the Bengals tough D.
TE: Jimmy Graham (@LAR)
Jimmy Graham’s time in Seattle has been very disappointing and will continue to disappoint against Wade Phillips’ impressive defense.
