Title Belt Articles of the Week
Noted hot sauce maker and spicy take specialist Bo McBrayer doesn’t disappoint in his weekly “Fantasy Football Hot Takes” for FantasyPros. This week he highlights a wide receiver who is primed to go off, a tight end he thinks will have a mountain of catches, and a running back who is going to burn their opponents on Sunday. So check out his advice and scorch your leaguemates in Week 5 on your way to a championship.
Got 99 problems and they’re all fantasy football running backs? Trust me; you’re not alone. So what’s going on with elite running backs heading into Week 5? Can we expect it to change any time soon? Dan Kelly breaks it all down in his latest article for The Ringer.
We all love winning sick championship gear, but you know what we also like? Winning money. In his weekly article “Money Makers & Heart Breakers,” Mike Reedy lays out the perfect strategy to make your wallet a little fatter this weekend. Whether you play on DraftKings or Fanduel, he’s got you covered.
One of the most difficult things to do in fantasy is finding someone everyone else thinks will fail. More often than not, you're left with a donut in your flex. Mike has - somehow - figured out a way to successfully identify those players so you can have a chance to compete. Be sure to check out Mike's sleepers for Week 5.
