The guys give their fantasy football musings from the 1/4 poll off the season and ask, who would have thunk it? CJ2K would S-U-C-K. Darren McFadden and Matt Forte would be your leading backs? Wes Welker would have 20 points more than the next best WR? Tom Brady’s MVP season would be followed up by an even better season? Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl MVP would hang-over in a good way? 100 points no longer gives you a good chance of winning?

In the Hot Waiver Wire Pick-ups for Week 5, the guys still like Titans QB, Matt Hasselbeck (74%). He is the 8th ranked QB at 22 PPW. Redskins RB, Jabar Gaffney (94%) is averaging 8 PPW and might throw a TD pass. 49er, Josh Morgan (99.8%) is seeing consistent targets and with Alex Smith not favoring the constantly double-teamed Michael Crabtree he is looking very good. Staying with RBs, Patriots, Stevan Ridley (97%) is seeing an increase coinciding with the decrease of the Law Firm. Redskins, Ryan Torain (60%) is getting lots of carries at the expense of Tim Hightower and Roy Helu. And finally as a bonus Steelers RB, Isaac Redman (98%) is seeing a big increase due to injuries to Reshard Mendenhall. At TE, we like Browns, Benjamin Watson (92%) who’s averaging 8 PPW with targets going up.

In Fantasy Football for James, we look at bye weeks. New players must understand that they happen every year and that they should have planned ahead. Never leave a roster spot open and be prepared to settle for less points if you have not done your homework.
