Kyler Murray had been fairly matchup dependent this year having thrown for over 300 yards twice as well as 2 TDs twice. This week Murray will take on potentially the worst defense in the league that even allowed Mason Rudolph to walk all over them… The Bengals. If there is one game for Murray to breakout and show everyone his full potential it is this one. I project Murray will be a top 10 QB this week in this advantageous matchup. Fantasy Projection: 218 yards 1.5 TDs 40 yards rushing 0.4 TDs

Normally I would not condone playing Andy Dalton especially with how bruatl the offensive line have looked, but I think in some deeper leagues he could be a viable option for week 5. Dalton was sacked what looked like a million times in week 4 due to his horrible line and his fantasy numbers suffered. Dalton will face the Arizona Cardinals in week 5 who have one of the worst secondary’s in the NFL this will allow Dalton to bounce back although I still have him as only a top 14 QB. Fantasy Projection: 242 yards 2 TDs

Christian McCaffrey is a one man wrecking crew who almost every single week finds himself at the top of the Fantasy RB rankings. In week 4 CMC rushed for 93 yards and 1 TD as well as having 10 receptions for 86 yards. Not that I really think it matters who his matchup is, but he takes on the Jaguars this week who have not been there dominant selves on defense this year. CMC will continue to get a huge share of the offensive volume with Kyle Allen behind center and should be set up for another top performance. Fantasy Projection: 71 yards .05 TDs rushing 7 reception 53 yards 0.4 TDs receiving

Nick Chubb had one of the best weeks of any RB in the past 10 years in week 4 when he rushed for 165 yards and 3 TDs along with 3 receptions for 18 yards. Chubb has proven that not only is he a work horse back, but he is an explosive asset for any fantasy football team. Chubb will be a consistent top 7 RB going forward until Kareem Hunt returns and then we will need to re-assess his value. This week Chubb has a more challenging opponent in the 49ers, but expect his talent and volume will keep him in the top 6 this week. Fantasy Projection: 90 yards 0.8 TDs rushing 2 receptions 20 yards.

One week its Mike Evans for a break out to disrupt the Godwin explosion this year and then…. Its right back to Godwin! Godwin had a huge performance in week 4 when he had 12 receptions for 172 yards and 2 TDs. Godwin has proven that he is Jameis Winston’s favorit target this year and is now a top 5 receiver on the year. Godwin faces the Saints this week who have proven to be a tough matchup, but if the Buccaneers O-Line can hold up the secondary can be taken advantage of. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 72 yards 0.5 TDs

It is very nice to see Robert Woods finally pay back his draft value although it took a 60+ passing attempt game for that to happen. Woods had 13 receptions for 164 yards in an absolute shoot out.. Woods takes on the Seahawks on Thursday night who are not as formiddable a foe as they once were. I expect Woods will be able to continue on his solid week 4 performance although not quite as strong. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 69 yards 0.4 TDs

Tight Ends
  1. Travis Kelce KC vs. IND
  2. Zach Ertz PHI vs. NYJ
  3. George Kittle SF vs. CLE
  4. Austin Hooper ATL at HOU
  5. Darren Waller OAK vs. CHI
  6. Evan Engram NYG vs. MIN
  7. Mark Andrews BAL at PIT
  8. Will Dissly SEA vs. LAR
  9. Delanie Walker TEN vs. BUF
  10. Greg Olsen CAR vs. JAX
  11. Eric Ebron IND at KC
  12. O.J. Howard TB at NO

Austin Hooper balled out in week 4 when he had 9 receptions for 130 yards. For now it appears as if Hooper will retain his significant target share in the Falcons offense that can be very valuable seeing that they tend to be in a lot of shoot outs. Hooper faces the Texans this week who are not as strong of a defense as they once were and should be a matchup that Hooper can continue to prove himself against. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 65 yards 0.4 TDs
