So let’s get right to it. Here are some players you will definitely start, and some others you will definitely want to sit, for Week 5 of the fantasy football season.
Week 1 is in the books. 16 teams are undefeated. 16 teams are winless.
You probably lost your opening week fantasy game because you tried to get cute with your roster…or you started Andrew Luck.
It’s important to note that even though running backs seem to get drafted higher than every other position every year, only two running backs were in the top 10 for scoring in week 1. It seems like the value positions are switching from running back to wide receiver and quarterback.
Who knew that quarterback was an important position in football?
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson left yesterday’s game against the Jets during the second quarter yesterday with an apparent knee injury.
It has now been revealed that he will be out 3-4 weeks after his MRI earlier today.
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson left the game in the second quarter today after a hit to the knee. The RB was the leading fantasy RB last year until he sustained an injury. His return is questionable. Jackson took the hit as the Bills trailed the Jets 21-0 in the second quarter. He had a great year as a fantasy player last year in Jackson’s absence.
Second year running back C.J. Spiller will run in his place. He already has a rushing touchdown and a 56 yard run today filling in for the injured Fred Jackson. Jackson’s return is questionable but he is up on his feet on the sidelines.
The Cowboys and Giants kick off in just a few hours, and it still remains unclear whether or not Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will play in tonight’s game.
