COACHING MOVES - WEEK 5 FANTASY PREVIEW

Welp, we saw DeAndre Hopkins blow up on Thursday night against the Colts. Frank Gore, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson all had good fantasy production too. But we're just getting started! Here's a look at some key fantasy players you may be deciding on for your Week 5 matchups.

COACHES' CRIB NOTES

• Last week Blake Bortles posted 19 fantasy points - more than Andrew Luck has in any game all season. Through four weeks, Bortles is a top 10 fantasy quarterback and has one more passing yard than Aaron Rodgers. He goes up against a Buccaneers squad that turned the ball over five times last week and has a talented duo of Allens (Robinson and Hurns) to distribute his passes to. Bortles is a great quarterback sleeper if you need him in Week 5.

• If there's a week to start the No. 1 runner on the Redskins depth chart, this is it. Alfred Morris matches up against the Atlanta Falcons who have allowed more FPPG to running backs than any other team this season. Last week Morris saw the lion's share of carries for Washington with 17 so the fact that Atlanta is allowing two touchdowns per game to RBs should be reason enough for you to plug Freddy Mo into your lineup and feel somewhat okay about it.

• Nobody is saying Ronnie Hillman is the answer for Denver's backfield. But by all accounts he has earned himself a bigger role in the Broncos' offense and has been praised by coach Gary Kubiak for his impressive play thus far. With C.J. Anderson shaping up as one of 2015's biggest early season fantasy busts, Hillman is now the Denver running back to own and has scored the only two rushing touchdowns for his team this year. Even if the backfield becomes a "50/50" split in terms of carries, Hillman has more upside (See: 72-yard TD run) over Anderson this week against a middle-of-the-pack Oakland run defense. If you own both Denver backs, Hillman is the one to start.

• Last week was James Jones' first game of the season without a touchdown and he still almost managed to post double-digit fantasy points in standard scoring leagues with 98 receiving yards. With touchdowns on nearly a quarter of his receptions this year (four on 17), he's a good candidate to be the second wideout that the Rams allow a touchdown (or two) to when Green Bay takes on St. Louis at Lambeau Field.

• Will Jeremy Maclin become the first Kansas City wide receiver with three-straight 100-yard games since Dwayne Bowe in 2010? Sure, why not? In his last two games Maclin has racked up 19 catches for 289 yards and a touchdown. And that whole deal with Alex Smith not throwing the deep ball hasn't really been an issue; 182 of Maclin's 398 yards (45 percent) have come after the catch. Plus, he's averaging 10 targets per game and faces a Chicago defense that has allowed the eighth-most FPPG to opposing wideouts. Fantasy owners who may have sold high on Maclin after his Week 3 breakthrough could already be regretting that move.

• Gary Barnidge has become Josh McCown's second favorite target and leads Cleveland with 16 receptions. He is the only other pass-catcher on the Browns to score a touchdown other than Travis Benjamin and is becoming a legitimate every-week starter at a position that can be very volatile in fantasy. So if you own him, fire him up this week despite the seemingly poor matchup.

• Amari Cooper is becoming a mainstay in fantasy lineups because of his consistent production. On average, Cooper posts about 84 yards per game and has just one contest, his NFL debut, where he put up single-digit fantasy points in standard leagues. Of his 339 receiving yards, 200 of them (58 percent) have come after the catch which is a testament to his play-making ability with the ball in his hands. Since the Raiders play a tough Broncos defense this week, Cooper has been downgraded to a flex play rather than a WR1 or WR2, but you can still have faith in the AC/DC connection to produce for fantasy owners once again.

• If you're looking for a D/ST to stream, the Jaguars face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. Jameis Winston and his Bucs turned the ball over five times against Carolina in Week 4, including four interceptions and a pick-six, and will likely continue to cough up the rock frequently all season. So pretty much any D/ST going up against Tampa Bay will make for a good spot start this season and that includes Jacksonville in Week 5.
