Here are your Week 5 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Sit.
Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
A ruthless offense against one of the best defenses in the league. We’ll see which team is true to form, and Mahomes impressed everyone on Monday night. He’s playing at home and has all the moxie. But is he above one of the toughest matchups he’ll see in the regular season? After a gritty and cool performance against the Broncos, he should have confidence, and so should his owners. However, this is not a great matchup as quarterbacks are averaging just 183.3 passing yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. Even if Mahomes can double those numbers, he’s still not worth the start. Chances are you have another option that’s got a better matchup and if not, it’s understandable. Just don’t be surprised if the kid has an off-day. – Ernie Estrella
