Eli--1024x683 Week 5 Quarterback Rankings

DraftKings Start of the Week
Eli Manning – NYG @ GB ($6,000)

The Giants have no run game, and the Packers have one of the best run defenses in the league. So, that’s not going to work. The Giants have to pass, and the Packers don’t have a great pass defense… It’s really as simple as that. If New York has a chance in this game, it’s through the air. The Packers have allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, 8.3 yards per pass, and 6 passing TDs. More about OBJ here, but Eli is in line for a big day, and a great value at $6,000.

Sit of the Week
Matt Ryan – ATL @ DEN

He just put up 500 yards against Carolina, so he’s matchup proof… Right? Maybe, but he’s not worth the risk. Historically, Ryan has put up more yards at home, the Broncos have allowed the 5th fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs, and have only allowed 2 passing TDs this season. I’d rather stream Hoyer, Stanton, or even his counterpart Lynch/Siemian.
