Week 5 Wide Receiver Rankings

OBJ-1024x706 Week 5 Wide Receiver Rankings


DraftKings Start of the Week
Odell Beckham, Jr. – NYG @ GB ($8,500)

If you know of a sports show (radio, TV, hell even a newspaper article) that goes 10 mins without some mention of OBJ, please let me know. I’d love to hear about something, or someone else.

Here’s how this works: Player gets off to a slow start, or acts out, and gets scrutinized heavily by the media. All you hear about for days is said player. Player plays in a primetime game, and player’s team makes it a point to absolve him. Player has a remarkable game. Everyone in the media talks about how great player is, and acts like they weren’t just comparing him to the scum of the earth just hours ago. Everyone moves on… Never fails.

Remember what I said about Eli Manning, and the Giants running game? Odell Beckham. The Giants will get him involved early, and often, and the Packers have no one to stop him.

Sit of the Week
Terrelle Pryor – CLE vs. NE

Pryor has been one of the more surprising players of this young season, and if he has a big day Sunday, I’ll be even more surprised. Belichick has a way with limiting, or completing erasing, a team’s #1 weapon. The Patriots were just embarrassed at home. The Patriots get Mr. Brady back this week. Patriots, Patriots, Patriots… Not only will they be ready to play from a preparation standpoint, but Brady provides an extra spark/boost from the confidence perspective. I feel bad for Cleveland… I’ll also be surprised if Cleveland scores more than 10 points.
