Fantasy Football 2013: Week 5 sleepers

Each week fantasy football implications are getting bigger and bigger.

Reaching the playoffs, though, or at least remaining in contention requires you to pick up some sleepers that will rack up big points. After all, the total points you score in a season could be the difference between the postseason and waiting until next year.

Therefore, let’s check out Week 5 sleepers who could help increase your odds of victory as we near the midway point of this season.


Bilal Powell: RB, New York Jets (at Atlanta Falcons)

Bilal PowellAlthough Bilal Powell has done fairly well for the Jets thus far in 2013, Week 5 looks like a good week for him. Atlanta’s defense is vulnerable to the run, which helps set up big plays. While Gang Green’s offense doesn’t compare to New England’s, New York’s ground attack should move at a sound rate.

While it won’t be easy, Powell’s recent production of 100-plus total yards in the last two weeks bodes well. The Patriots had big plays because they kept true to not giving up on the ground. And the same can happen for the Jets since running is their strength.


Daryl Richardson: RB, St. Louis Rams (vs. Jacksonville Jaguars)

Yes, Daryl Richardson has largely disappointed the past two games. Plus he also responded to a tweet on Twitter that he’s not starting this week:

That said, St. Louis is hosting the 0-4 Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5. As a result, the Rams face a matchup that can be the turning point in their season.

Richardson remains St. Louis’ best option in the backfield, and the most experienced. Sam Bradford needs a ground game to help set up the pass—and not just for garbage time—which will be needed to build confidence down the road.

Jacksonville’s defense has been virtually non-existent so far this season. So, expect a sound performance from Richardson both rushing and receiving.


Miami Dolphins Defense (vs. Baltimore Ravens)

Joe Flacco is coming off a five-interception performance, and is also hitting the road against the AFC East once again. The Miami Dolphins actually field a respectable defense, you just wouldn’t know it after how Drew Brees eviscerated them on Monday night.

Nevertheless, Miami did slow down the high-powered attack of Atlanta in Week 3 and had similar success on the road against the Colts. Baltimore does present a balanced approach, but the Ravens have yet to display any explosiveness to push the pace. In turn, Miami’s capable pass rush and decent coverage will surprise in Week 5.
