The Buccaneers head to New Orleans for a battle with the Saints, this is who to start and sit in fantasy football this week.
After a gutsy win against the Los Angeles Rams in week four powered by great fantasy performances by Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, the Tampa By Buccaneers now look to move to 2-0 in the NFC South division. Today the Buccaneers continue their tough road trip against the New Orleans Saints and their backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Quarterback Jameis Winston will face a tough pass-rush this week in New Orleans. Expect Winston to air it out this week against a Saints pass defense that has averaged giving up 278 passing yards which are ranked 24th in the league, so as a bonus “start ’em,” Jameis is a good quarterback to stream if you need one.
The Saints defense looked good last week against the Dallas Cowboys only allowing 257 total yards of offense and one touchdown to the likes of Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, and Amari Cooper. It will be interesting to see if they can keep contain on this high powered Bucs’ offense, or if the pewter and red will be too much to handle.
Here is who should start and who should sit in your fantasy football week five matchups.
