We are officially at the one quarter mark of the season and it’s serious now. Go on a roll and put some distance between you and your opponents. Or perhaps you need to make ground, after a slow start? The second month of the season is a crucial one and yes, there are byes every week to complicate matters.
Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.
Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 5 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Start.
Ricky Seals-Jones, Cleveland Browns at San Francisco 49ers
Not having David Njoku, and potentially Jarvis Landry could leave Baker Mayfield at a loss for targets in Week 5. I know the Niners are a bad matchup on paper but OJ Howard is off to a slow start, the Bengals only look to their tight end at the goal line, and Vance McDonald got hurt. Should the Niners look to crowd Odell Beckham and dare Mayfield to throw to Antonio Calloway, RSJ could be an easier, safer option, especially if he can get as open as he did last week for that touchdown catch.
Demetrius Harris is on the team but he’s only been targeted four times all season, Pharaoh Brown’s got one catch and both are probably better to serve as blocking tight ends given this o-line. All signs point to RSJ being a factor in this game and moving forward.
