Fantasy Football Pitfalls – Week 5
I’m going to look at the matchups each week and pick five fantasy starters that could be in for a tough week. Here’s a look at players who could struggle this week.
J.T. O’Sullivan - If you’ve been riding the J.T. O’Sullivan wave, be warned, it could get bumpy this week. He gets to face a New England team coming off a bye after beeing humiliated by the Dolphins. That wouldn’t be fun for any QB, but it’s even worse for one with as little experience as J.T. has.
Stat Line: 14 of 29 for 130 yards, 3 TDs, 3 INTs, 23 rushing yards
Michael Turner- If you think he’s going to bounce back from a mediocre performance, guess again. His two big games came against Detroit and Kansas City. They both have awful Defenses. Green Bay will provide a much stiffer test, especially at home.
Stat Line: 26 carries for 121 yards, TD
Rudi Johnson – He had a nice game for Detroit prior to the bye, but I’m not expecting him to follow it up with a big performance vs. the Bears. If you grabbed him off the waiver wire in hopes he returns to his old form, you’ll have to wait a little longer.
Stat Line: 5 carries for 23 yards, 3 catches for 9 yards (further proof PPR leagues are silly)
Matt Jones - Crackman has been pretty solid to date, but that will change when he faces Pittsburgh this week. Even though they are at home, I don’t expect Jones to be highly productive.
Santana Moss - Santana has been on fire, but he will draw Asante Samuel next week in Philly. He’ll make life tough on the speedy veteran.
Stat Line: Did not catch a pass.
