Your Week 5 Fantasy Football Playbook

austin-davis9_21_14 (1)

Alright gang, we’re into October and it’s that chunk of the season where losses sting and margin for error shrinks. We have a key rundown of our work to help you assess today’s lineup calls, but first some key injury news.

These guys are out: Carson Palmer, Harry Douglas, Joique Bell, DeAngelo Williams, Marqise Lee, Cecil Shorts III, Mark Ingram, Ryan Matthews.

Some hard questionables: Vernon Davis didn’t practice this week and said there’s only a “small chance” he’ll play; Calvin Johnson should play; Eric Decker is a West Coast late kickoff game-time decision; Andre Johnson and Arian Foster are green light starts; Odell Beckham will make his NFL debut. Ben Tate is likely to start in CLE, although if we had Isaiah Crowell we wouldn’t be afraid to play him if the situation is desperate enough.
