Week 5: Start 'Em

Though these players might normally be on your fantasy bench, they might be worth starting this week. This week's picks include Brian Hoyer, Eli Manning, Rashad Jennings, Eddie Lacy, and DeAngelo Williams.

Over the first 3 weeks of the season Terrence Williams was behind Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Miles Austin and therefore wasn't much of a factor in the Cowboys' offense. That changed this past week when Williams replaced Austin on the field and played a more prominent role in the offense, catching seven passes for 71 yards. With each day it looks more and more likely that Austin will once again be out and should lead to another solid day for Williams. Williams ranks higher in point per receptions leagues; if you need a flex or WR3, Williams should definitely be looked at.

Slowly but surely, Robert Woods is becoming the go-to receiver for the Buffalo Bills, having played more snaps then Stevie Johnson in the last two games and also being targeted 18 times - catching six of them for 115 yards and one touchdown (he caught a 2nd touchdown, but it was ridiculously called back). With each game that passes, it appears that Woods and fellow rookie quarterback EJ Manuel are more and more in sync. Look for that to continue to grow this week as the Bills face the Browns on Thursday night, where stud corner Joe Haden will be locking down Stevie Johnson. This should leave more open looks for Woods. If you need a flex or low end WR3, Woods might just be your guy.
