Daily Haze: Sam Bradford, Bye Week Plug & Plays, Week 5
Good luck with everything else in your life. Fantasy football demands your attention, immediately!
The key to spot starters?
Hopefully you never need them. But every fantasy owner finds himself/herself in a pinch at some point during the season.
Look for the best matchups and hope for the best!
Week 5 Byes: Dolphins, Patriots, Steelers, Seahawks
Ryan Fitzpatrick v. Jaguars
No one fears the Bills' passing game, but Buffalo gets an inconsistent Jacksonville team at home this weekend. Could be the first W of the season for the Bills.
Sam Bradford @ Lions
Bradford's progress as a rookie has been one of the biggest surprises of the young season so far.
Ladell Betts/Chris Ivory @ Cardinals
Pierre Thomas may not play again this week, so the unexpected duo of Betts and Ivory will carry the load against a bad run D.
Mike Tolbert @ Raiders
Ryan Mathews is back, but Tolbert still is a factor here until Mathews is fully healthy.
Derrick Mason v. Broncos
Mason was available on the wire in both of my fantasy leagues this week, and is coming off a good outing against the Steelers. Often overlooked as a fantasy commodity, Mason should be good for at least eight points again this week.
Danny Amendola @ Lions
Mark Clayton gets most of the targets, but Amendola has been consistently available for Bradford. He is going to score TDs at some point this season.
Why not this weekend?
Jeremy Shockey @ Cardinals
The Saints have a lot of weapons, and Shockey has flown under the radar a little this season. Healthy, he should be a factor in the passing game this weekend.
Here are today's great reads:
- More on yesterday's HUGE trade of Randy Moss to the Vikings. Two stories ... First, Fantasy Spin: Randy Moss to the Vikings. And second, Randy Moss Trade: Fantasy Spin. A lot of love, but uncertainty, for Brandon Tate in fantasy circles. We will not have an idea how this is going to shake out in New England until next weekend, the agony! [Roto Arcade, FanHouse]
- And now more on the other big trade yesterday. With Marshawn Lynch out of the way, Fred Jackson will take over as the starting running back in Buffalo. The way this season is going, however, it will not be long until C.J. Spiller starts taking over. [ProFootballTalk]
- Ryan Torain is the starting running back in Washington now that Clinton Portis is out 4-6 weeks (more on that Friday), while LeGarrette Blount appears next in line to take Cadillac Williams' job in Tampa Bay. Both young running backs could be on the verge of fantasy breakouts. [SI.com]
