Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday, Rankings Day! Get ready for another jam-packed day in which myself and Matt will be sharing with you all our rankings! Just a quick note, before I begin, I’m going to be switching up the format this week. I’m going to keep my blurbs short and sweet, like the other guys do, with more emphasis on the “Tool Time” series, where not only will we have more updated information regarding who’s healthy or not, but also a clearer look at match-ups, and a chance to give you guys more information regarding our Razzball-certified picks for the week ahead.
Enough chatter, let’s get to it!
Players That I’m High On
Alex Smith – He has such a high floor every single week due to his primary weapons of Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Kareem Hunt, and it has shown immediately, as Smith is already the #3 QB in most scoring formats. I expect him to do well once again against Houston this week.
Dak Prescott – Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams already seem to have some positive matchups, and at home against Green Bay, Prescott should light it up after a disappointing loss last week to Los Angeles.
Javorius Allen – I actually like him quite a bit against the Raiders this week. You may wonder why I’m not high on Alex Collins, and that’s simply due to the fact that the young runner can’t seem to hold onto the ball. Allen is a fine flex play this week.
Chris Hogan – He’s been terrific so far, and I expect him and the rest of the Pats offense to be firing on all cylinders in this matchup against the injury-riddled Bucs defense.
Davante Adams – He may actually play, and if he does, I think you should really consider him for your flex. This Cowboys secondary isn’t a very good one, and it showed with their performance against Cooper Kupp . Aside from Adams, Cobb is a good play, as is Jordy.
Players That I’m Not High On
Deshaun Watson – Look, I like him just as much as the next guy does, but I don’t think he should be a Top-5 QB this week. There’s bound to be some regression after last Sunday’s performance, and we shouldn’t overreact after one week.
Jay Ajayi – His knee and the rest of this offense is some cause for concern. Sure, it’s a good match up, but that’s what we said about New York and New Orleans.
Delanie Walker – No Mariota is some cause for serious concern. Is he the worst TE you could possibly start in Week 5? No. Could you definitely find someone else? Yes.
Alright guys, that about does it for me. As always, leave your questions and comments below and I will answer them in a timely manner. Once again, stay tuned for Saturday as I’ll be giving out some Razzball-certified plays for Week 5! Take it easy.
