It’s that time of year – where your fantasy studs have a week off and you’re stuck scouring the wire starting someone you’ve barely seen any Sportscenter highlights on.

With the Raiders, Buccaneers, Cowboys, and Lions (oh my!) on bye this week, the fantasy pangs of desperation are slowly creeping in.  Hey, at least Tony Romo won’t throw any interceptions this week.

As with all of fantasy football, it’s real easy to see the upside play and miss the better matchups and more consistent options.  Bye weeks are even worse because you feel the need to get an elite player’s points from, well, not an elite player.  Hopefully my thoughts on some fill-ins for this week keep your team afloat if you’re decimated by byes (say that three times fast).

Reflecting on last week’s picks, Ryan Fitzpatrick had a huge game and Lance Moore was pretty solid with 7 catches for 67 yards.  However, my plays of Mikel Leshoure, Ramses Barden, and Christian Ponder were all pretty brutal.  My bench calls of Tony Romo, both Chicago backs, and Reggie Bush were solid, but Cam Newton had a great fantasy game and Dez Bryant, despite Tony Romo playing terribly, had his second career 100-yard game.  Not the best week.

Here’s five guys not started in enough leagues and five guys started in too many leagues that should be benched, along with their % started in ESPN leagues and Yahoo leagues, respectively.  And remember, these picks are not always suggestions for direct 1-for-1 swaps if you own players in both sections, but merely picks for guys not started enough and started too often.

Possible Starters:

Jackie Battle, RB, San Diego (27.1%, 32%) Quickly rising up the fantasy ranks, Battle makes a great start this week at New Orleans.  The Saints are absolutely terrible against the run, giving up the second most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and with Ryan Mathews’ value falling faster than Facebook’s stock after their IPO, I think Battle is a solid flex.  As I mentioned on this week’s Razzball Fantasy Football Podcast, what really intrigued me last week was Battle’s 4 catches for 42 yards and a touchdown.  Watching Mike Tolbert every week for my Panthers has shown me that even running backs with no track record of success catching balls and with terrible hands can be useful in the Chargers passing game.  I’m even considering playing Battle over BenJarvus Green-Ellis in a PPR league.

Kendall Hunter, RB, San Francisco (2.5%, 6%) As Brandon Bolden showed us last week, you don’t have to be a great running back to murder the Bills run defense.  From a talent standpoint, Hunter is a better back than Bolden, and with the continual plan of keeping Frank Gore’s touches down, especially in blowouts, I think Hunter has a big game here with 15+ touches.  The Bills are a giveaway machine and the 49ers will get this game out of hand.  By the second half I think it’s all Hunter.  Another great flex play for me.

Andrew Hawkins, WR, Cincinnati (12.0%, 22%) Even though last week was a measly 3 catches for 39 yards, it was still Hawkins worst game by far, and with the volatility across fantasy football these days, that’s not a bad worst game.  He’s easily the second in line for targets behind the monster that is A.J. Green, and the Dolphins pass-D has been pretty bad so far, giving up the 6th most fantasy points to opposing wideouts this year.  I have a feeling the Dolphins are able to limit the run (again, why I’m hesitant starting the lawfirm) and the Bengals get a lot done through the air.  Like Hawkins a lot.

Jon Baldwin, RB, Kansas City (1.6%, 2%) A pretty deep sleeper for me this week, I think we see Baldwin’s emergence through the junk time against the Ravens.  Baltimore’s pass defense hasn’t been as effective this year, and while I do think the Ravens win easily, they are going to blanket Dwayne Bowe and leave a lot of single coverage for Baldwin.  I have a feeling he gets a late score here and 5 or 6 catches.

Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina (14.7%, 32%) Coming into the season, I was pretty low on Olsen from a fantasy perspective, but the Panthers have really altered how they’re using him this year.  Sure he split out wide here and there in 2011, but they’re lining him up outside frequently these days, and turning him into their second wide receiver.  I don’t mean literally as in a position change, but he’s clearly better than Brandon LaFell and Louis Murphy, and is the best target for Cam behind Steve Smith.  Against the vaunted Seahawks defense, the Panthers are going to need to methodically move the ball, and give a lot of work to Olsen on mid-range routes.  I think he gets 6-7 catches with a shot at a score without any issues.

Son Of A Bench:

Willis McGahee, RB, Denver (80.3%, 65%) In a game that’s going to turn into a shootout real fast, I don’t think McGahee has a large share of Denver’s offensive output at New England.  In Peyton’s last two starts against the Patriots in 2009 and 2010, the Colts managed 91 and 71 yards on the ground, respectively.  Plus the ratios of pass attempts to rushes were 42 to 18 and 52 to 20.  Given McGahee is a better back than what Indianapolis had in those days (well, and still have – Donald Brown has shown me nothing to back my love for him in the preseason), but I think he gets left behind and has a really bad fantasy game here.

Fred Jackson, RB, Buffalo (57.3%, 33%) Even though he’s fully practicing, Jackson is donning a knee brace and still isn’t 100% yet.  On top of that he’s facing a menacing defense at San Francisco and splitting carries with C.J. Spiller.  If you’re going to start a Bills running back, it’s got to be Spiller for this week as he’s got the big play ability.  I think the Bills get into pass mode fairly early, and while Fitzgerald will dump it off to either back, I think we see more of Spiller in passing situations.  I’m keeping Jackson out this week.

James Jones, WR, Green Bay (40.4%, 46%) I am absolutely shocked at the sheer preposterousness of the percent started numbers for James Jones.  Shocked.  For a guy who has never had a long-term string of fantasy relevance, I feel like owners are going crazy for the Packers’ third receiver.  I know Greg Jennings is out, but Jones’ 2-TD game last week was a complete fluke and function of the game, with the Packers spreading it out and shredding a terrible Saints D.  This week at the Colts, the Pack won’t need to do that, with a lot more power back sets and running their offense through Cedric Benson.  Jones is only going to get a few short targets, and I’m guessing won’t even be on the field more than 60% of the time.  Even as a bye week fill-in, I like a lot of other options over Jones.

Brian Hartline, WR, Miami (62.8%, 52%) I know it’s extraordinarily hard to bench a guy coming off such a ridiculous week, but I have a feeling Hartline gets shut down at Cincinnati.  The Dolphins have no one else as a deep threat, and with now a lot of tape on Miami’s #1 receiver and Tannehill, I think the Bengals will scheme very heavily on the breakout wideout.  The Bengals D looked much stronger last week (given it was the Jaguars), and I think with a specific player to target in their secondary coverage, they will be effective in stifling him.  If you’ve got a lot of receivers on bye he’s still a strong play, but I wouldn’t bench any of your fantasy veterans for the upstart Hartline just yet.

Martellus Bennett, TE, New York Giants (60.5%, 57%) I have a feeling Bennett’s success through the first few weeks was more of the outlier, and his one catch for single digits last week is closer to what you should expect from the big fellah.  I do think Bennett is talented, and we all know he has some catching issues, but even with Nicks out, I don’t think he has a big role this week.  The Browns are actually giving up the 3rd least amount of points to tight ends, and I think we see the Giants finally getting their ground game going with Bradshaw and Brown this week.  I’d bench Bennett for one of the multitude of other mid-range tight ends this week, like Olsen.

If you have any last second decisions, shoot some comments below or tweet me @jbgilpin. Good luck to everyone today in week 5!

    I’m going with Jacquizz at RB2 (killed by byes this week) and Battle at FLEX over Hixon and Rudolph. Does that seem like the right strategy to you?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @sickmangarner, Definitely like Battle the most, and Jacquizz barely edges out Rudolph for me. Like all 3 guys more than Hixon, but think you have the right lineup in there.

      • sickmangarner says:
        (link)

        @Jonathan Gilpin, forgot one key bit of data–it’s a 1 pt. PPR league. Does that change the Rudolph/Jacquizz preference?

        • JB Gilpin

          Jonathan Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @sickmangarner, Nah I think it’s still Jacquizz, both will get their looks in the passing game, but Rodgers will deifnitelt get some yards on the ground and Rudolph may or may not get a TD, thats the difference for me.

  2. Murph says:
    (link)

    Big Ben or Vick? My opponent has mike Wallace….

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Murph, I tend to not worry too much about guys on the same team or my opponents having my QBs receivers and what not, but I think it’s still Vick. Pretty close given how bad he’s been passing the ball, but I think his rushing numbers gives him a slight edge. Steelers will blitz a lot, giving Vick a few chances for big runs.

      • Murph says:
        (link)

        @Jonathan Gilpin,

        Higher ceiling for Vick got it. Yea I drafted him knowing it was going to be feast or famine and the steelers d isn’t as great as it use to be. Just hope Ben doesn’t repeat his week 3 performance haha. Thanks again and good luck this week!!!

        • JB Gilpin

          Jonathan Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Murph, You too man! I need Vick to have a big game myself, was actually impressed with what I saw against the Giants even though not huge numbers… Eagles are on the brink of breaking out.

          • Murph says:
            (link)

            @Jonathan Gilpin,

            Yeah I think they finally found the balance they were looking for but your right not huge numbers but no turnovers. Got to like that!!!
            One last question. If you had Ryan and Vick what trade do you like more ROS

            Ryan for DMC or Vick for Murray?

            • JB Gilpin

              Jonathan Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Murph, I like Vick for Murray much better. I think Murray bounces back and Ryan is the better QB.

  3. Bean says:

    Need some last minute help……….

    For RB spot; McGahee or Ridley?

    For WR spot; Hawkins or Hixon?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bean, Surprisingly, I like Ridley more, but that one is razor close. Definitely like Hawkins more than Hixon.

  4. Help please! I have to sit one of these RB’s?

    Sproles, Ridley, Benson.

    Cheers.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @WhineSpritzer, out of those, I think it’s Ridley. Sproles is always heavily involved and I think the Pack crush the Colts. Good luck today!

  5. Brian says:
    (link)

    Hey Jon – Are you thinking Hawkins over Cobb at my Flex this week? .5 PPR. I see you guys have Cobb ranked pretty high.

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Brian, That’s a really close one… Yea I think I go with Hawkins because I think the Bengals will need their passing game a little more than the Pack will need theirs.

  6. Scott says:
    (link)

    League 1 decision:
    .5 ppr
    Flex (WR/RB/TE)
    Rudolph, Olsen, or Cobb

    League 2 decision
    .5 ppr
    TE
    Olsen or Rudolph
    and
    Flex (WR/RB)
    Cobb, Wright

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Scott, League 1 I like Olsen for the reasons above. League 2 stil Olsen then Cobb at your flex.

  7. Nonstoptalk says:
    (link)

    I’m starting Foster/Mathews @ RB. I have BGE or Battle left for a flex. Right now I’m leaning Battle because Miami’s run D has been dominant so far. Am I making the correct choice?

    The thing that scares me the most is I’d be all in on the Chargers with Rivers/Mathews/Battle.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nonstoptalk, Ya know, I think it’s fine to be all in on the Chargers this week. The Saints are downright terrible on D and I expect a lot of work for both backs. Tough to leave BJGE on your bench, but I think I’d do that as well.

  8. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Big Ben or Luck? Think both will throw a lot. 4 pt TDs, 5 pt bonus at 300 yds. Most rankings (including Razz) have Ben a tick or 3 higher, but I’m wondering if the yardage bonus swings it.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson, Agree both will throw a lot, but it’s Big Ben for me. I think the yardage bonus helps Ben more than Luck, we’re seeing Ben chuck it a ton this year.

  9. Chris says:
    (link)

    With Doug Martin on a bye do play Deangelo Williams or Ben Tate?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris, Definitely DeAngelo. Tate hasn’t great and hasn’t gotten a lot of work in other shootout games recently. A tough matchup for my Panthers, but you know DeAngelo is gonna have at least 10 touches, can’t say that for Tate.

      • Chris says:
        (link)

        @Jonathan Gilpin, Cam’s my qb so hopefully Carolina has a big day. In my flex spot should I play Tate or Crabtree?

        • JB Gilpin

          Jonathan Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Chris, Ugh… I’d say Tate, although I don’t like either. I sure hope my Panthers have a big day!

  10. ja says:
    (link)

    In a non ppr league should i start cobb or micheal bush at flex?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @ja, Cobb. I am not a big Bush fan, Cobb has so much more upside.

  11. EVERY site has RGIII ranked well ahead of Rivers. But I don’t see it this week. Rivers should have a field day and I think Washington really struggles to score this week. Am I crazy to start Rivers of Griffin?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @WhineSpritzer, You’re not crazy, but I think you just have to start RGIII until he shows us he’s not an elite level fantasy player. We saw Cam and the Panthers, who have looked anemic in some games, play pretty well against the Falcons last week and Cam had a big fantasy game. Think RGII does as well, the slight edge to RGIII because of rushing yards as I think Rivers out throws him against bad Saints D.

      • @Jonathan Gilpin, RGIII is not being awesome. I should have listened to myself. Bad spot for the Skins.

  12. N says:
    (link)

    PPR League; Pick 2:

    -Jermichael Finley
    -Dennis Pitta
    -Kyle Rudolph

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @N, I’m leaving out Rudolph. I know he’s gotten the TDs, but I like Pitta’s role more, last week’s no catch game notwithstanding.

  13. jeff says:
    (link)

    @Jonathan Gilpin: .5 PPR, 12 team. Hurting a bit with Austin and VJax on bye. My options to replace this week are D. Henderson, Hixon/ and N. Washington. Need two. Leaning Henderson because it should be a shoot out and someone has to see 15 of the targets that went to Lance Moore last week. Also, leaning Hixon over Nate based purely on the QB. Would love your thoughts though. Thanks in advance!

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jeff, Yup, I agree with you. Don’t like anything to do with the Titans offense with grandpa Hasselbeck back there. I thought Henderson would have a big game earlier in the year and he got hurt or else I would’ve called him a start in the article… I think he has some great upside.

  14. paulzone says:
    (link)

    0.5 ppr / 3 pt bonus or 100 yds – pick two out of:

    bush, bradshaw, mathews

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @paulzone, Definitely leaving out Bush. I would do that in virtually all formats, the 100 yard bonus helps too, as Bush would be the only guy who definitely doesn’t hit that plateau.

      • Murph says:
        (link)

        @Jonathan Gilpin,

        It depends on whether he means Reggie or Micheal

        • JB Gilpin

          Jonathan Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Murph, True, I guess I immediately thought Michael. If Reggie, I’m leaving out Mathews.

  15. Sawx10 says:
    (link)

    Start Draughn or j. Rodgers at my flex in ppr?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Sawx10, Rodgers. PPR huge help, like him more in standard though as well.

  16. Tim says:
    (link)

    Was offered Run DMC and AJ Green for V-Jax and McCoy. Non-ppr. Take it?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tim, Wow that’s a tough one. I think I take it. Green is elite obviously and V Jax is so hit or miss, and isn’t great IMO. I think the downgrade from McCoy to DMC isn’t nearly as big as the upgrade from VJax to Green.

  17. hee haw says:
    (link)

    So do you like Simpson more than Nixon in a 1point ppr. And in another league I have Hixon in over Maclin 1 point ppr is this right thanks.

    • hee haw says:
      (link)

      Or I can pick up D. Henderson in either league. And the first was hixon not nixon. Love the podcast.

      • JB Gilpin

        Jonathan Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @hee haw, Thanks man! Yea I just don’t trust Henderson… I’d go with these other guys.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hee haw, I like both Simpson and Maclin more. I think you leave Hixon out, he was the focal point against the Eagles because of the game plan and defensive scheme. I think he has a slow game today.

  18. Hank says:
    (link)

    Slim pickings for my RB2 spot: Bolden, J. Rodgers or Tate. Who would you play? Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hank, Time to Jacquizz in your pants. Like him a good bit more than those other guys.

  19. Hi JG, looks like you’d take Olsen ahead of Rudolph in PPR, so I won’t bother asking you again…so how about this, I need to pick 3 out of these 6:

    Chris Johnson, Donald Brown, Nate Washington, Crabtree, Cobb, Avery?

    Leaning towards CJ, Wash and Cobb…but I also like Crabtree againt Buf and D. Brown..who do you pick?

    Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @exactly, Yup, indeed like Olsen. My 3 would be CJ Brown and Cobb. I know Brown has been bad, but he will be out there and will get definite touches. Can’t say the same for any of those other guys. I think I like Avery’s upside more than Wash and Crabtree as well. Colts will be throwin.

  20. FilthyRich says:
    (link)

    standard non-PPR league – start Garcon or D Hixon? Hearing that Garcon still not 100%plus has a tough matchup and Browns have trouble defending the pass.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @FilthyRich, Yea, completely follow your logic, but I’m down on Hixon. Garcon has so much upside and Washington will be throwing a lot to keep up with the Birds. I’d stick with him.

  21. JoeBoo says:
    (link)

    Rivers or Dalton?
    Thx

    • JB Gilpin

    Anyone of the above RBs or Stevie Johnson for my flex

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @J Money, Definitely Forte and leaving Bush out for everything. Leaves Battle vs. Johnson and I actually might go with Battle. Will get carries, will get goal-line looks.

      • J Money says:
        (link)

        @Jonathan Gilpin, thanks. Would you start Stevie or Steve smith in my other wr/t flex position?

  23. Dave the Barber says:
    (link)

    Shyun,

    I feel like I know the answer to this but here goes anyway, Do I start Spiller or M.Bush?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dave the Barber, I hope your answer was Spiller! Haha. Tough matchup sure, but just a far superior player. Can break a big one. Bush will be dependent on a goal line look.

  24. adan says:

    which 2 should i start its between j jones, a boldin or j simpson at wr? thank you

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @adan, Definitely Boldin… Very very tough call for your 2nd spot, I think I like Simpson more. As written above, think Jones is way overhyped for this week.

        @Jonathan Gilpin, thanks,

  25. Bronco-Feld says:
    (link)

    Normal non-ppr league….

    Pick 2 backs (due to byes) D. Brown, A. Brown, or M. Bush.

    Also

    Vernon Davis or Kyle Rudolph…..Think I have to go with Vernon….

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:

      @Bronco-Feld, Donald Brown and Bush. Not sold on Andre Brown’s role. Yea, I think you have to go with Vernon too.

    non ppr,Cobb or Hixon?….or EITHER ahead or DJax?

    also….Cam or Ben?

    btw….thnks for convincing me to get Hartline into one of my lineups last wk.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @oilcan Giuseppe, Haha, yea I remember that, hope you won that game with Hartline! 1) I like Cobb, Hunter and then I guess Hester… I’m not in an return yard leagues so I’m not as good gauging their numbers, but I feel like he’s assured points and touches in the return game while the other guys aren’t. 2) Cobb over Hixon. Def like DJax more. 3) Sticking with Cam. Big Ben can throw, but Cam can run and running yards worth more making him a tad better. Thanks for reading!

  27. StLewy says:
    (link)

    Who is a better start this week P. Manning or Big Ben? Pats d has giving up a lot of yardage but its Manning vs Belichek. Return of Mendenhall could slow down Big Bens production if he is truely healthy.

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @StLewy, I agree with all your points, it’s Peyton for sure. Should be a fun game and I think he gets more TDs.

      Jonathan Gilpin says:

      @oilcan Giuseppe, Definitely Hartline. Jones was such a fluke last week, Hartline, well, those crazy numbers were kinda flukish, but he will get his targets.

  29. Charles says:
    (link)

    Battle, Spiller, Britt, or Jacquizz at Flex (2pts per 5 reception)?

    Antonio Brown and DeSean Jackson over James Jones, right?

    • JB Gilpin

      Jonathan Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Charles, Ya know, I think I’d roll with Battle, but it’s real close. If Spiller was 100%, even with the tough matchup I’d say hi, but his ailing shoulder has me a tad worried he’ll miss a few more snaps than otherwise. Definitely sticking with your big name WRs. Miles better.

  30. rak says:

    Cam Newton or Big Ben? All touchdowns are 6 points. Im also an eagles fan so for now I have Cam in.

      @rak, Haha I hear ya, yea it’s Cam for me. Rushing yards makes him a tick better for me.

      @gmatt21, After watching today’s game, you know I think I would do it looking at your roster. With Amendola out for 6 weeks, you’re kinda desperate. Something I would consider though is your opponent’s team, will he be a major competition? If it makes his 3-1 team even better, I might not do it, don’t want to help him out more! Hope that helps.
