Daily Haze, fantasy football, NFL, sports news

NFL bye weeks, injuries to starters and confusion on and off the waiver wire are just a few of the items fantasy owners need to juggle here in 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

Quarterbacks

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.

Running Backs

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.

Wide Receivers

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?

Tight End

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.
