Fantasy Football Week 5: Surviving Aaron Rodgers, Bye Weeks and Injuries

Oh yes, A familiar sight for defenses

Let’s start by admitting it is a trick question—there really is no defense against Aaron Rodgers in fantasy football. So if you are one of the ones who drafted him, good for you! 

But if you are playing against him, just hope for an average day from him, but don’t worry because with bye weeks upon us and injuries everywhere, you can match up against anyone.

This week, the teams on a bye are Baltimore, Dallas, Miami, St. Louis, Washington, and Cleveland.  As far as fantasy goes, this doesn’t seem too imposing. Chances are, you have to replace Baltimore’s defense, and Ray Rice. 

You should look also look into Dallas' Tony Romo, Jason Witten and Dez Bryant, Washington's Santana Moss, Ryan Torain, Tim Hightower, or Roy Helu and Cleveland's Colt McCoy.
