The Redskins secondary will be a piece a cake Juan…

Week 5 Ride ‘Em Or Hide ‘Em WRs

You don’t need me to tell you to start Megatron, Fitz, or Julio…my mom could figure that out.  Let’s look at some other matchups that could be favorable this week:

Juan’s Going Deep With

Julio Jones @ Was

He has had a couple of bad weeks in the first month and may be a bit inconsistent this season, but I will safely say that he is going off this week.

Ride ‘Em

Roddy White @ Was

You probably don’t need me to tell you to start Roddy, but sometimes I fight common sense as Captain Obvious.  White should light up the Redskins woeful secondary.

Jordy Nelson @ Ind

The defacto #1 in Green Bay will get a ton of targets this week with Greg Jennings out of commission.  Love him this week.


Domenik Hixon vs Cle

Nicks is likely out.  Barden is likely out.  That guy Elisha is pretty damn good at making WRs that you have never really heard of, really good.

Randall Cobb @ Ind

Cobb should have an expanded role this week with Greg Jennings out.  James Jones and Jermichael Finley are crazy inconsistent, so Rodgers may lean on Nelson/Cobb this week.

Michael Crabtree vs Buf

Crabtree will be better in PPR leagues, but he should no problem taking advantage of a Bills defense that has allowed 7 WR TDs in the first 4 games.

Donnie Avery vs GB

Avery is very active in the Colts offense and should remain the starter as long as he is healthy.  The Pack may pay a lot of mind to Wayne which will open up things for Avery.  Tons of garbage points in this game.

Hide ‘Em

Pierre Garcon vs Atl

I love a healthy Garcon, but he is still ailing and the Falcons are the best team in the league against WRs.

Andre Roberts @ StL

The Rams defense has been great against the pass and although Roberts has been the top fantasy option in the Cards passing game this season, I would sit him this week.


Stevie Johnson @ SF

Stevie Johnson’s TD streak ended at 3 games last week.  The 49ers are only allowing 16 points a game to fantasy WRs.  No bueno.

Andre Johnson @ NYJ

AJ’s value will take a hit in every game that they don’t need to throw.  This is game that they won’t have to throw much.
