Week 5 Add/Drop – Jennings Only If You Have To

Rashad Jennings – if you’re in need of a spot start at RB, Jennings could provide some value. The biggest issue with Jennings is that the Raiders don’t play until 11:35PM on Sunday so if Darren McFadden and Marcel Reece are both good to go, you would be hard pressed to find a fill-in unless you have McFadden Reece or someone going in the Monday night game.

Brian Hoyer – Hoyer followed up his strong week 3 performance with another solid game. He has 2 excellent targets in Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon and could be a valuable backup QB or QB2 in 2QB leagues.

Marlon Brown – He now has 3 TDs in 4 games and continues to be a favorite target of Joe Flacco in the red zone. I doubt you’ll see many huge games from Brown because those types of games will go the way of Torrey Smith, but he should be a pretty consistent flex option in deeper leagues.

Week 3 Add/Drop – Iron Man James Starks?

James Starks – he’s likely only a 1 week play. Green Bay has their bye week next week so they will almost certainly rest Lacy for 2 weeks and get him back out there for week 5. The match up for Starks this week @ Cincinnati is not a great one so unless you’re desperate for a spot start this week then I wouldn’t waste a high waiver claim on him.

Eddie Royal – 5 TDs in 2 games is pretty compelling, but I am still a little hesitant to fully buy in. Royal has been around for a while and has had a few bursts of greatness to be followed up by consistent mediocrity. He’s worth a bench stash in all leagues and if he continues to look strong he can be started, but for now I would look to him only as a depth player.

Charles Clay – tight end has proved to be deep so far this year so you might not be in the market for one, but, if you’re in a deeper league and looking for a solid TE play, Clay looks like he has filled the role that the Dolphins expected Dustin Keller to fill.

Marlon Brown – Brown has 4 receptions and a TD in back to back weeks to start off the year. I think he’ll continue to be the #2 WR in Baltimore even after Jacoby Jones comes back. Torrey Smith will be the one to draw any double teams and Brown will continue to reap the benefits.

Jason Snelling – I don’t trust Snelling to be a consistent option while Steven Jackson is out, but I do expect him to get more carries than Jacquizz Rodgers. I don’t like either of the Falcons RBs but if you’re really desperate and in a deep league you could do worse.
