    Proceed With Caution – Weak Plays for Week 5 

    These are the guys you might normally start, but may want to reconsider this week for one reason or another. This week, let me start out by saying this: I seriously almost decided to add Steve Smith to the list this week, simply because with David Carr throwing the ball, he’s just plain screwed. Carr sucks – SUCKS – and so will Smith, DeShaun Foster, and every other part of that offense as long as Carr’s running the show.

    But I know, I know: You can’t bench Smith. But I’m willing to bet that, come Monday, you’ll be wishing you had.

    With that out of the way…

      How excited was I to have Steve Smith in 4 of my 5 leagues? Well about as excited as I am now scared, as I feel exactly the same as your opening paragraph. The guy is a must start, but with Carr throwing (who I also have now that Delhomme has gone down in my favorite league) and the look of hatred he gave when sreaming into the coaches phone in week 4, even Steve Smith may need to get benched…

    Five potential fantasy shockers this week 

    Every week in fantasy football for as long as it has existed, there has always been one constant: Some player comes out of relatively nowhere, has a gigantic, multiple-touchdown game, becomes the league’s hottest waiver or trade commodity, and then generally sinks back to his normal level of production the following week. If you could predict who that guy would be each week… well, you’d have a lot of trouble convincing your friends to let you into their fantasy leagues. So it’s a good thing that I’m probably going to be way, way wrong here, but here goes: These are the five guys who I think could shock everyone with a monster game this week.

    This has nothing to do with the other definition of shocker, so shut up. But whoa, thanks to my Google search for an explanatory link, now I have to buy a giant foam shocker hand. Stupid Google.

      So close is your take on Gus Ferotte….however, Steven Jackson has been ruled out of week 5. Without a running game, Gus will have his work cut out for him.

      Is Matt really Nostradamus in disguise? Probably not, but his picks of Henderson, Frerotte and Gonzalez look pretty good so far. Will Evans go off tomorrow night? I’m hoping not.
