Week 5: Sit 'Em

These usually solid players are not worth starting this week due to match-up, injury, or other circumstances This week's picks include LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles, Mike Tolbert, Deion Branch, and Pierre Garcon.

With the return of Colston and the ability of Drew Brees to spread the ball around, Henderson has gone up and bust. He had great Weeks 1 and 2, then things started going down hill. I was starting Henderson with confidence and then lost out big time. I suspect Henderson will have up and down weeks from this point forward. This week Henderson faces a Carolina defense that is giving up 203 passing yards per game. Sit Henderson until further notice.

Chandler scored in each of the first three games of the season, but his yards per game and receptions have decreased. In Week 4 Chandler caught two passes for 8 yards. This week Chandler and Buffalo face a Philadelphia defense that is getting torched by running backs for an average of nearly 140 yards per game. I think Fred Jackson might run like mad this week and the Buffalo air attack will be used as needed to keep the rushing game paced. Chandler should not be your bye week or other fill-in at tight end. He is likely to gain 20 yards on a few receptions this week.
