NFL Breakout or Bust Week 5

NFL Breakout or Bust Week 5


Antonio Gibson: Antonio Gibson is slowly taking the backfield over in Washinton this season. Last week he had a total of 128 all-purpose yards and a touchdown (Yahoo Fantasy), a good day, but what I liked most was all the work. He was the focal point of the offense, before the game script turned negative, getting almost all of the goal-line work and being their pass-catching back. Gibson could break out for a big week against the Los Angeles Rams if they can keep the game close.  Look for Gibson to become another Alvin Kamara Christian McCaffrey type of player who can do it all emerging in Washington.

JuJu Smith-Schuster: Juju Smith-Schuster is going up against the Philidelphia Eagles awful secondary. I am expecting a shootout from the two teams leading me to believe JuJu should have an awesome game. He should be able to put up stats somewhere around 100 yards and a touchdown.

Justin Herbert: Justin Herbert was just named the starter over Tyrod Taylor for the rest of the season by head coach Anthony Lynn. Herbert has done well so far this season and with the Los Angeles Chargers taking on the New Orleans Saints it should be another high scoring game. I am looking for Herbert to have around 3 touchdowns, 315 yards, and an interception. Also, look for Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry to have big days.


Odell Beckham Jr.: Odell Beckham Jr. popped off last week going for 131 yards and 3 touchdowns (Yahoo Fantasy) against the Dallas Cowboys. This week, I think, will be a different story going against the stout defense of the Indianapolis Colts. I see the entire offense struggling outside of Kareem Hunt. Look for Odell to have 50-75 yards and maybe a garbage-time touchdown.

Julio Jones: Julio Jones struggled last week with an injury and did not play in the second half of Monday Night. It was a negative game script for the Atlanta Falcons, but without Jones Matt Ryan was not able to get the job done. I am looking for more of the same this Sunday when the Falcons take on the Carolina Panthers. He is listed as questionable as of Saturday Morning but if he plays I would steer clear. If anything he will most likely be a decoy instead of a true threat. 

Dalvin Cook: Dalvin Cook tore up the Houston Texans last week rushing for 130 yards and 2 touchdowns (Yahoo Fantasy). This week he will not only face Seattle’s solid run defense but Russel Wilson a man on fire as of late. All that combined Cook will still have some value since he is a big part of the Vikings offense but I see Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen having most of the workload if Kirk Cousins can get them the ball.
