Week 5 Match-ups!
Saturdays I like to focus on this weekend’s match-ups and throw in a few Sleepers.
Top 3 Rushing Match-ups:
vs – Melvin Gordon doesn’t get many yards, but he does get the TDs.
vs – Terrance West is now the feature back for Baltimore.
vs – DeMarco Murray is a top RB in all Fantasy leagues. Miami’s Defense is mediocre against the run.
Top 3 Passing Match-ups:
vs – The Carson Wentz show continues!
vs – Big Ben and Antonio Brown, all DAY!!! And Revis is a gametime decision.
vs – Doesn’t matter who is QB in Carolina, Tampa Bay’s pass defense will allow lots of points through the air.
QB – Paxton Lynch
RB – Terrance West
WR – Sammie Coates
WR – Chris Hogan
TE – Will Tye
News and Notes
Cam Newton is still under concussion protocol. Since his game is on Monday, he could get cleared to play with that extra day of rest. Derick Anderson will be his replacement if he can’t go, I see him throwing just fine against that Tampa Bay Defense.
Tom Brady is back! This means Gronkowski is back too. Look out NFL, for Brady’s revenge tour 2016 and it starts with Cleveland.
Denver could be starting a rookie QB in Paxton Lynch. Trever Siemien is nursing a sprained shoulder that is not his throwing arm and is a gametime decision. Either one of these guys can put up a lot of points on Atlanta’s Defense.
Las Vegas over/under has the Chargers at Raiders game as the highest scoring game this weekend. I say look out for the Jets at Steelers game, that’s going to be a lot of points.
