Evan’s first look at Week 5 in the NFL

Wow it’s week 5 already football season moves at a real quick pace compared to all the other sports. Let’s dive in with some initial reads for the slate. I’ll focus as usual on the main Sunday slate.

Steelers vs Jets
This game has a nice total of 48 points and Antonio Brown and Leveon Bell despite their high price tags are firmly in play but for a value play I have real interest in Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brandon Marshall. I do expect the Jets to be playing from behind and this may be a good spot against a suspect steeler secondary (gpp only)

Packers vs Giants
If I’m paying up for a quarterback Aaron Rogers is my guy and pairing him with Jordy Nelson might not be a bad idea. I like Eli Manning as I expect the Giants running game to not do well in this game. Odell Beckham is in a drought and his price is depressed reminds me of a Julio Jones situation from last week need to monitor

Vikings vs Texans
Perfectly happy fading both sides of this game but could consider both defenses and kickers in this game

Dolphins vs Titans
Have little fantasy interest here

Patriots vs Browns
Brady is back and will be the chalk quarterback this week. Love Jacob Edelman at 7 k. Feels like a Lagarette Blount game .

Ravens vs Redskins
Ravens secondary looks good . Kirk cousins to Jordan Reed like the matchup. Sneaky running back Terrace West should get the bulk of the carries with Justin Forsette being cut. The Ravens have been susceptible to the run

Eagles vs Lions
Detroit is really one dimensional these days and I’m curious to see if the Eagles defense is for real. Is Carson Wentz for real ???

Colts vs Bears
Game has a 48 pt total love this game

Broncos vs Falcons
Broncos defense is always in play. Can Atlanta shut down the Denver running game.

Rams vs Bills
Defenses only in this one

Raiders vs Chargers
Game has a 50 point total consider everyone in this game but the defenses

Cowboys vs Bengals
I think the Bengals defense could be sneaky here. Will Dez Bryant play this week

Stay tuned to Ian and Evan’s podcast tomorrow where we try to identify our best initial plays for week 5
