Week 5: Sleepers of the Week
James Jones and the Green Bay Packers travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in week five. Jones is coming off a good game against the Saints in which he caught five passes for 56 yards and two touchdowns. Jones should be in for another good game this week, with Greg Jennings struggling with injury and a doubt for this weeks game. If Jennings is unable to play, Jones should slot into the Packers' starting lineup, making him a strong WR 3 or Flex play for the week. Fantasy owners should monitor the situation, and if Jennings is ruled out for this week's game, Jones can be expected to eclipse 75 yards and one touchdown in a starting role.
Jerome Simpson and the Minnesota Vikings return home to take on the Tennessee Titans in week five. Simpson made his season debut in week four, catching four passes for 50 yards against the Detroit Lions. Simpson's role in the Vikings offense should continue to grow as he becomes more comfortable with Christian Ponder, as Minnesota desperately needs someone to step up opposite Percy Harvin. Simpson is one of those fantasy receivers that will be hot and cold throughout the season, making it difficult to start him each week, but I believe this week will be a good one for Simpson. Fantasy owners can start the Vikings wide receiver and can expect 75 receiving yards and a touchdown.
