Draftboard Week 5 Preview

It's the classic unstoppable force versus immovable object matchup in Houston this week, with Kansas City's Kareem Hunt looking to carve up the Texans' formidable front seven.  The Draftboard dream matchup of the week belongs to Le'Veon Bell, who faces a brutal Jags defense in a game where the Steelers are heavily favored.

He comes at a steep price but it is hard to argue against fielding Aaron Rogers this week. With 7 TD's in his past two games and Montgomery unlikely to play, the Packers are going to be relying heavily on Rodger's right arm. His opponents, the Cowboys, have allowed 8 passing TD's in their last 3 games, so Rogers won't exactly be taking on an unstoppable defense.

A pick among the top fantasy WRs is Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who will be facing an Eagles defensive core that has struggled to tame passing offenses so far this year. A strong performance from Fitzgerald is expected week 5, especially if fellow Cardinals' wideouts Nelson and Brown (both questionable) don't suit up.
