Before I move on to week six I’m going to recap my three fantasy football teams and how they did in week five. My teams went 2-0-1 in week five and all three are now above .500 on the season. My team on NFL.com is 5-0 because of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had a monster start to the 2011 season through the first five weeks.
CBS.com – Tied 76-76 and the team is now 2-1-2 and in second place in the division. My regular starting defense is the Baltimore Ravens, but they were on a bye week last week. I picked up the Tennessee Titans defense and the move blew up in my face.
The Titans defense was on a good roll and going to play a very banged up Pittsburgh Steelers team. The Steelers mauled them 38-17 and the Titans defense scored only three points for me. It was by far their worst outing of the season. I thought I was onto a little something with them last week, but now the Ravens are back and I couldn’t be happier.
I have a very solid group of running backs with Michael Turner and Frank Gore as my starters and Ryan Torain who I signed last week. I’m debating if I should take a chance and insert Torain for one of them for this weekends game. Not sure what I’m going to do at this point and will think about it over the next couple of days.
NFL.com – Won 93.74-91.30 and are now 5-0 on the season. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been a huge reason for the great start to the season. I also have Packers tight end Jermichael Finley in the starting lineup as well.
I was able to win last week because of some huge contributions from New England Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis with 26.90 points and DeSean Jackson who had 14.20. Jackson hasn’t given much this season and I hope this can be the start of a decent stretch of games from him.
FanSpeak.com/ESPN - Won 77.6-68.9 to improve to 3-2 on the season. I was able to get the win last week because Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had a monster three touchdown game.
