The Wire: Week 5

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Our goal here is to try and bring you under the radar guys along with some of the obvious pick ups across all leagues in order to help you rise to the top. As time goes on I promise you I will get better at this & even add some more notes like I did for the "trade targets" towards the end of the article. Without further ado, I now present you our first edition of "The Wire"...


Andy Dalton – I know he just looked HORRIBLE on national tv, but hear me out.. If you have Stafford on bye & don’t have another QB on your roster, Dalton should be your guy in week 5 as he matches up against the Cardinals. The Cardinals are very friendly to opposing quarterbacks as they have allowed 3 of 4 quarterbacks they have faced to score 30 or more fantasy points. Funny enough the only QB who didn’t hit the 30 marker against them was Russell Wilson.

Gardner Minshew – Minshew mania has taken the social media world by storm, but not all fantasy communities as he is still available in 86% of ESPN leagues & 85% of Yahoo leagues. Minshew has thrown for 2 TDs in 3 of his 4 games as a starter along with going over 200+ yds in all 4. He isn’t a high upside play, but definitely a safe one.
