Start’Em QBs: Jacoby Brissett, Deshaun Watson, Kirk Cousins, Kyler Murray, Tom Brady

Jacoby Brissett has been balling ever since he took over after Andrew Luck retired and he will keep balling in week 5 against the Chiefs. He sure has surprised me of what he has been doing. Be ready for another good game from JB. I do not know what happens to Deshaun Watson in week four. Will I do know, week 5 he is going to change the script. Start Watson against the Falcons. He is bouncing back with a big game. Adam Thielen basically came out saying, “That Kirk has to throw the ball more even if they have the best RB in the league”. I have a feeling that this is going to change the offense. Start Kirk and enjoy the outcome. Larry is one of my starters in the WR position for this week. But he needs someone to throw him the ball right? Start Kyler Murray to get the job done. Washington facing Tom Brady and the undefeated Patriots in week 5. Tom Brady is going to make fantasy owners happy this week with the points he will put up. Great matchup. I really like it. Fire up, Brady.

Start’em RB’s: David Montgomery, Austin Ekeler, Joe Mixon, David Johnson, Dalvin Cook

RB David Montgomery should have a great game this week. His touches went up this past week. Expect the same volume against this Raiders team. Melvin Gordon is back for the Bolts, but that doesn’t mean to sit Ekeler. Even with Gordon back Ekeler is a must-start, especially against a defense that is allowing an average of 149.3 yards on the ground. Enough for Gordon and Ekeler. Joe Mixon carried the ball 15 times for 62 yards when they were just stopped completely by the Steelers. They facing off against the Cardinals in a juicy matchup for Mixon to rack up the yards. Same game different team. Start David Johnson because he will get in the end zone in week 5 one through the ground and one through the air. Bengals let James conner look like if it was the beginning of the 2018 season. Dalvin Cook is finally showing off what he can do a workhorse. He will continue to be great in fantasy this week against the Giants.

Start’Em WR: Adam Thielen, Curtis Samuel, Allen Robinson, Larry Fitzgerald, DeAndre Hopkins

D-Hop simply balled out week 1. He had 111 receiving yards plus 2 TDs. Since then he really hasn’t done anything. He has not looked like the WR fantasy owners drafted him to be this year. It is time for a bounce-back game. This is the week that he does, facing the Falcons that let Marcus Mariota throw 3 TD’s. D-Hop has the ability and the favorable matchup to get in the end zone. One of my favorite bounce-back players for this week is Adam Thielen. he had a rough game against the Bears defense that is no joke. Also, the fact that Cousins has not been playing good ball these few weeks makes it harder for the offense to put up points. But good news, they are not facing the Bears again. Week 5 they get the Giants that’s allowing 332.2 yards and two TD’s per game through the air. Curtis Samuel has 7 targets in both games that Allen has played. Not scoring many yards but the volume is there. The Jags are having team issues at the moment. Jalen Ramsey most likely will sit this game as well. Allen Robinson has a nice matchup against the raiders that are allowing an average of 281 yards through the air. Chase Daniels targeted A-Rob 7 times and connected all 7 times for 77 yards against the Viking defense. Congrats to Larry Fitz for moving up on Sunday to No. 2 all-time on catches. This week he gets to add more to that amazing stat (1,326). It has a great matchup versus the Bengals.
