Notables with a bye: Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Anquan Boldin, Josh Cribbs, Anthony Armstrong
Nothing too rough here in Week 5, but if you are a Brandon Marshall or a Dez Bryant owner, you might be scratching your head. I have been loving Brandon Marhsall on my team this season, yet I found myself in a tough position for a WR fill-in this week.
Good Wide Receiver Replacements:
Victor Cruz: If you haven't noticed, he's become the preferred receiver for the Giants with the other starters banged up.
Denarius Moore: He's owned in the majority of leagues at this point but could still be sitting in free agency here and there. He has a tough matchup against Jonathan Joseph this weekend, but the Oakland Raiders are playing to win following Al Davis' death.
Doug Baldwin: He's risky because Seattle is so bad, yet if they could pull the offense together like they did last week, Baldwin could see 10-12 fantasy points in production.
Jacoby Jones: The most obvious sleeper of Week 5, Jones should be added and started in every league. Matt Schaub is a great passer and will look Jones' way in Andre Johnson's absence.
Titus Young/Nate Burleson: Both of these Detroit Lions clearly get overshadowed by Megatron, yet they both have potential for six to eight receptions and 60-80 yards. Young has done better as of late, but veterans like Burleson tend to shine on Monday Night Football.
