Week 5 QB Ride ‘Em or Hide ‘Em

Juan’s In the Pistol With

Philip Rivers @ Raiders

Rivers is rolling (that’s gold) this season with 11 TD passes and only 2 INTs.  He also has banked 2 400 yard games already this season.  Sure this game won’t be over till like 2 in the morning on Sunday for East Coasters, but when they wake up the next morning, they will be happy campers.

Ride ‘Em

Eli Manning vs Eagles

Manning has been a disaster, but the best recipe to get back on track is the lowly Eagles defense.  Manning still has some serious weapons at his disposal and he should be able to get the ball in their hands this week.  If you need him this week, I think he is a borderline QB1.

Mike Vick @ NYG

Vick is still the 4th highest scoring QB in fantasy football, so play him every week until further notice…or until he gets hurt.  The Giants D will put up little resistance in what should be a shootout.

Hide ‘Em

Carson Palmer vs Panthers 

Palmer has fallen victim to having a group of turnstiles as his offensive line.  The Panthers strength is their front 7, which might wreck havoc on this offensive line.

Andy Dalton @ Patriots

Dalton without AJ Green would be Christian Ponder.  He hasn’t shown enough to warrant starting every week and the Pats have only allowed 12 points per game to opposing QBs.

Sleepers

Terrelle Pryor @ Chargers

Pryor has been cleared for take off and the Chargers are a perfect victim for him to get his mojo back with.  NO team has given up more points to opposing QBs than the Chargers.  Pryor will be pushing the top 10 this week.

Brian Hoyer vs Bills

The Bills have allowed 2 TDs to every QB they have faced.  They have no one that can cover Flash Gordon and Jordan Cameron will get his.  Hoyer has been a top 5 fantasy QB over the last 2 weeks, so it would be no surprise to see him throw for 250 and 2 this week.

Busts

Colin Kaepernick vs Texans

After giving up 4 TDs the first week to Philip Rivers, the Texans have shut down opposing QBs (Locker, Flacco, DangeRuss) to the tune 29 combined points.  Kap hasn’t been lighting the world on fire this season, so if you have a good backup (Rivers, perhaps?) then you could go with him.

Russell Wilson @ Colts

The Colts sound like a pushover, right?  WRONG.   They are the 4th best defensive against fantasy QBs and have only allowed 2 TD passes this season and 0 in their last 2 games.  Be careful with Russ this week.
