WR CeeDee Lamb (DAL)
With the Cowboys electric passing offense, Lamb is becoming a weekly must-start. Lamb exploded last week with 25.2pts, and will face a lackluster Giants team in Week 5. Lamb is arguably the best receiver from this years rookie class, and is proving it with his play. Expect Lamb to put up big numbers this week.
RB Jerrick McKinnon (SF)
McKinnon figures to be the featured back again this week, with Raheem Mostert still being banged up. McKinnon will take on Miami who’s struggled against the run early on. The 49ers also have a 2nd or possibly 3rd string QB starting this week, and will likely be especially run focused in week 5.
TE Eric Ebron (PIT)
The Steelers will face the Eagles this week, who have given up an average of 14pts to opposing TE’s this season. As a big body TE, Ebron will get plenty of redzone looks. Ebron is a proven TE, who will likely find himself in a great opportunity for a breakout week vs Philadelphia.
WR Odell Beckham Jr (CLE)
Odell seems to either a boom or bust player every week. He had his boom last week, but facing the best defense in the league so far might find some trouble. The Colts have played great from top to bottom on defense this year, and will look to continue their dominance this week.
RB Joshua Kelley (LAC)
While Kelley comes into this week as LAC’s RB1, I’d wait to jump on his hype train. The Chargers have trusted Justin Herbert to throw the ball and strayed away from the run a little in recent weeks. Kelley will have a huge challenge facing an excellent Saint’s D-Line. Kelley might put up some points, however I doubt they’ll be RB1 or RB2 numbers.
WR TY Hilton (IND)
To put it simply, Hilton is off to a brutal start to the year, with ZERO games over 10pts. I see no reason why that trend should change in week 5, the colts are a run first team, and don’t look like changing anytime soon. Zach Pascal has arguably overtaken Hilton as Indy’s top WR, and it’ll take a few big performances for Hilton to regain the WR1 spot.
