Fantasy Football Week 5: Who's Hot & Who's Not

Galli's "Who's Hot" Picks:

Davone Bess,  Miami Dolphins Wide Receiver

Miami at Cincinnati - 1 p.m. Paul Brown Stadium

  • Brian Hartline's attention helps
  • Production increases
  • Could be an offensive shootout in Bengals nation

Owen Daniels, Houston Texans Tight End

Houston at New York Jets - 8:30 p.m. Monday Night Football @ MetLife Stadium

  • New York Jets are awful
  • Texans defense plus Arian Foster equals Red Zone opportunities
  • Andre Johnson effect at wide receiver is huge

Brandon Weeden, Cleveland Browns Quarterback

Cleveland at New York Giants - 1 p.m. MetLife Stadium

  • Establishing consistency
  • Browns not too bad despite their 0-4 start
  • Little Giants in secondary¬†

Solano's "Who's Not" Picks:

Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers Quarterback

Seattle at Carolina - 4:05 p.m. Bank of America Stadium

  • Maturity Concerns; post-loss pity parties are growing old
  • Seattle's defense allowed only 251 total rushing yards so far
  • Sophomore slump: Newton has amassed 1,013 passing yards. At this same point last season, that total was 1,386

Rashard Medenhall, Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back

Philadelphia at Pittsburgh - 1 p.m. Heinz Field

  • Wait and see what he does this week before starting him; we need to see his Fantasy League value
  • Injury concerns: offseason knee surgery for torn ACL suffered
  • Dangerous Eagles are very confident after holding off the New York Giants

Mark Sanchez, New York Jets Quarterback

Houston at N.Y. Jets - 8:30 p.m. Monday Night Football @ MetLife Stadium

  • Texans defense is tough. Wade Phillips' defense ranks first (273 yards per game), including second against the pass (182.8).
  • Sanchez Struggles. Jets' offense has scored one touchdown in its past 34 possessions
  • Tim Tebow: Tebowing in Big Apple will soon happen
