It’s already the time of year when bye weeks Antworten

and injuries start to make weekly roster decisions increasingly difficult. Those two things have wiped out nearly an entire position group already (more on that later). Hopefully you have a deep enough roster to get through this initial wave of potential hardship.For those facing some difficult decisions this week , here’s start/sit for Week 5:Running backStart: T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville JaguarsLeonard Fournette is out, so Yeldon should get the majority of the snaps and carries for the Jaguars — though Corey Grant should play more, though who knows if Jacksonville will actually pull that trigger. Yeldon’s yardage totals haven’t been overly impressive in games this season — he peaked at 58 rushing yards against the New England Patriots in Week 2 — but he should get the volume as the lead back. Kansas City’s defense is pretty much an open road and in two of Yeldon’s four games, he’s seen seven targets to go along with two receiving touchdowns.Start: Chris Thompson, Washington RedskinsChris Thompson’s usage hasn’t been consistent from game-to-game, but there is a pattern. When Washington is ahead, Thompson doesn’t get a lot of work. But when they’re trailing, such as the 21-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2 (still weird), he’ll get more time. In that Colts game, Thompson had 13 receptions for 92 yards on 14 targets. This week Washington will play New Orleans and while the Washington defense should be good enough to not let the Saints completely run away, the game script should lend itself to more Thompson touches.Sit: Alfred Morris, San Francisco 49ersEven though the Arizona Cardnals have given up the most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, this isn’t a great game for Alfred Morris. Matt Brieda significantly out-snapped Morris last week against the Los Angeles Chargers 38-14. The running backs weren’t very involved, either. Brieda and Morris combined for 13 rushing attempts and six targets. Arizona’s defense has been improving — they’re 11th in DVOA — and without knowing how the workload split is going to look, it’s best to stay away. Sit: Dion Lewis, Tennessee TitansDion Lewis should be a bigger part of the Tennessee Titans offense. Maybe he will be eventually as the unit seems to be putting more pieces together and figuring out what they want to do. But Lewis had just four rushes and nine targets against the Philadelphia Eagles. Those targets ended with nine receptions and 66 yards, which made him a passable play for PPR, but left more to be desired. It’s also fair to wonder how much run Lewis will get — especially in the passing game — if the Titans take an early lead against the struggling Buffalo Bills. Wide ReceiverStart: Keenan Allen, Los Angeles ChargersI’ve brought this up before, but I firmly believe in the idea of starting your studs. Keenan Allen is a stud. Yes, he hasn’t had 100 yards receiver or a touchdown since Week 1 and he’s been battling some health issues, but Allen is still a stud. He’s still getting volume — 10 targets last week — and he could break out with a big game at any point. The Oakland Raiders have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, which could be the matchup Allen needs to get his numbers back to where they’re expected.Start: Calvin Ridley, Atlanta FalconsYou’re riding this out. At some point, the Calvin Ridley Experience is going to slow down — he has five touchdowns while safely being third among wide receivers in snaps played on the Falcons. Over the past three games, Ridley has played 55.6 percent, 61.8 percent, and 54.3 percent of Atlanta’s offensive snaps. But, he’s clearly been involved when he’s on the field. He has five targets, five receptions, and four touchdowns inside the 20 over those three games. While the Falcons have figured out their red zone offense, they’ve made Ridley a big part of it. He might be a good option to try to sell high before some touchdown regression hits, but if he’s on your roster, you’re starting him.Sit: Devin Funchess, Carolina PanthersAfter an up and down start to the season, Janoris Jenkins has been pretty good containing opposing No. 1 wide receivers. Micahel Thomas, the league’s leading receiver, was held to just four receptions against Jenkins last week. Devin Funchess gets that matchup this weekend and while the Panthers offense has been quite good Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey , throwing to wide receivers has not been a strength. In a game where the Panthers are likely to rely on the legs of Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey, Funchess is unlikely to see meaningful volume.Sit: Sammy Watkins, Kansas City ChiefsThe main event of this matchup is going to be Tyreek Hill and Jalen Ramsey however often they’re matched up. That will leave Watkins with A.J. Bouye, who is still quite good, or even Ramsey if the Jaguars choose to stay with their cornerbacks on sides. While Watkins has been able to break through with some big plays, he hasn’t been the big play threat in Kansas City. He’s only seeing 12.5 percent of the Chiefs’ air yards, which is around the likes of Danny Amendola and Jermaine Kearse. There’s always upside here in a high-powered offense, but if you have a better option, it could be safe to stay away from this matchup.Tight EndStart: Anyone who is healthyBetween the injuries and bye weeks (Trey Burton), it’s nearly impossible for anyone to have a legitimate start-sit issue at tight end this week. If you do, good for you, but you probably have too many tight ends on your roster. If you have any tight end who has the possibility of seeing even some volume in the passing game this week, start him. Soooo much to talk about from the New York Giants’ 23-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. We have already given you “plays that changed the game,” some player reaction, coach Pat Shurmur’s explanation for some of his decisions and a look at why going for the two-point conversion late in the game was the right move. Now, let’s get to your traditional “Kudos & Wet Willies” review.Kudos to ...Giants’ pass rush — The Giants got three sacks on Matt Ryan and hit him five other times. Rookie Lorenzo Carter got a sack. The preseason version of Kerry Wynn showed up as he got a sack, a quarterback hit, and batted down a pass. B.W. Webb got a sack with a well-timed blitz off a creative design from defensive coordinator James Bettcher. For a change, pressuring the opposing quarterback was not an issue for the Giants.Odell Beckham Jr. — Eight catches in 11 targets, including a 51-yarder, a touchdown, an average of 17.9 yards per catch. These are the types of performances the Giants expect, and need, from Beckham. Yes, he failed to catch the ball on the two-point conversion attempt. Yes, we can argue all day about whether he ran a poor pass route or Eli Manning made a poor throw when they misfired inside the Atlanta 10-yard line late in the half. Sterling Shepard — Had catches of 58 and 53 yards and averaged a ridiculous 33.4 yards on 5 catches. His 167 receiving yards were a career high.Quadree Henderson — The Giants added the rookie undrafted free agent to the roster hoping he would give the Giants’ kick return game a spark, and he did that. Henderson had a 21-yard punt return, the Giants best of the season in the second quarter, and averaged 14.5 yards on two returns. He made one mistake on a kickoff bringing the ball out from 4 yards deep, but still reached the 20-yard line only to have a penalty push the Giants back. He averaged 20.5 yards on four kickoff returns. All in all, he showed that perhaps the Giants have found a solution to their kick return issues.Going for 2 — I will admit, at first I didn’t like Pat Shurmur’s decision to try for a 2-point conversion with the score 20-12 and 4:52 remaining. Now that I have seen the math and heard Shurmur’s explanation I’m fine with it. It’s forward thinking, where the game is heading in terms of the use of analytics, and Eagles coach Doug Pederson is lauded for this sort of thing all the time. I will applaud Shurmur for trying to be bold there.Also, Shurmur should be praised for his third quarter challenge that turned an Atlanta incompletion into a catch-fumble-recovery by the Giants that ended a Falcon drive at the Giants’ 20-yard line.Wet Willies to ...Giants’ offensive line — This is really simple. Say what you want about the quarterback, but the biggest problem the Giants have is that their rebuilt, and now re-configured twice since the season started, offensive line is awful.Manning was sacked four times. He was hit nine other times. That means he was hit on 30.9 percent of his 42 drop backs. That doesn’t even count the times he had to move or the 7-yard scramble that nearly got the Giants a touchdown. He was under siege, especially in the first half when the Giants scored only 3 points.Left tackle Nate Solder Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey , the centerpiece of the offensive line rebuild, was largely responsible for two of the sacks. Will Hernandez got schooled for one by Atlanta’s Grady Jarrett. Saquon Barkley had 43 yards on 14 carries (3.1 yards per attempt) and had exactly no where to run all night. On a third-and-2 swing pass to Barkley designed to get him 1-on-1 the Giants missed two blocks that turned it into a one-on-three that even Barkley couldn’t win.I’m honestly not sure a single member of the line played well.QB sneaks with the game slipping away — You’re kidding me with this, right? We didn’t actually see the Giants, needing two scores and at the Atlanta 1-yard line with 45 seconds to play and no timeouts run sneaks with Manning TWICE, burning the clock down to :05 before scoring, and giving themselves no chance at the second score. Did we?Oh, that’s right. We did.Bad teams do dumb, inexplicable things that help them lose games. This was one of them. Shurmur can insist all he wants that you “should be able to convert on the sneak.” He’s right, but ...With Saquon Barkley in the backfield, and Beckham, Evan Engram and Shepard as receiving options you use the 37-year-old quarterback on back-to-sneaks with 45 seconds left and no timeouts? With a crummy offensive line? Effectively ending your slim chance to win the game by failing both times and not scoring — on a pass — until there were only :05 seconds left? Indefensible.Janoris Jenkins — Made a nice play to strip the ball from Julio Jones on the aforementioned Jones’ catch-fumble replay reversal. Still, Shurmur and Jenkins both indicated the 47-yard touchdown pass that put the Giants in a 7-0 hole was on him. It’s been a long time now since Jackrabbit has played up to the level of that five-year, $62.5 million contract.The curse of the improbable field goal — A 61-yarder to beat them by an unknown rookie in 2017. A 63-yarder by Graham Gano of the Carolinas Panthers to beat them on the final play of a game this year. Now, a 56-yarder with 1:55 remaining by replacement kicker Giorgio Tavecchio, playing his first game as a sub for injured Matt Bryant, to provide Atlanta’s winning margin.This is yet another one of those inexplicable things that happen to bad teams.Let’s talk about Eli ManningHis final numbers, 27-of-38 for 399 yards with a touchdown, no interceptions and a passer rating of 113.8 and his gutsy 7-yard scramble and dive for the end zone pylon would indicate the quarterback should be in line for a “Kudos.” The Giants, though, scored only 6 points in the first 55 minutes against a defense giving up 32.0 points per game, and there were opportunities to do better.Manning and Beckham misfired on a first half play that should have been a touchdown, costing the Giants 4 points. I don’t know who was at fault. I do know that who you blame is going to depend entirely on how you feel about the players.Manning clearly messed up the third quarter fourth-and-1 with the Giants trailing 10-3.This, of course, is the “why didn’t he throw it to Odell?” play. He probably should have done so early in the play. Failing that, the throw he chose to Scott Simonson was his worst option. Manning can choose Beckham, Evan Engram, a wide-open Rhett Ellison, or, if he turns back to his left (which you can’t blame him for not doing under duress), Barkley. He chooses to try and squeeze a pass into Simonson, the third-string tight end.Bad choice, obviously. No one, though, should be surprised. Manning outside the pocket and on the run, with rushers barreling at him, has never been a good decision-maker. Like the rest of his team, Manning did a lot of good things in this game. Just not enough to win. If I’m going to grade him, it’s probably a “Kwillie.”
