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 Wide Receivers to Start.
Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders
Even though the Bears offense has been sputtering in recent weeks, Robinson has come through. Prior to Week 4 he hauled in 17-of-27 targets for 212 yards of offense. Then came the injury to Mitch Trubisky and we wondered how Robinson would fall with Chase Daniel under center. The answer is, not at all. Robinson caught 7-of-7 passes thrown his way for 77 yards, which is enough to get him in the flex conversation and worked over Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes in the process.
With a defense that’s not nearly as good as the Vikings, and already in step with Daniel, Robinson is on a short list of receivers who are poised for a big day in Week 5, against an Oakland secondary that has allowed five different receivers to pull in six touchdowns through four weeks.
