Feast or Famine – Week 5

Every week I will pick and choose certain players that will produce above (Feast) or below (Famine) our Fantasy Sharks Player Projections. A couple guys every week may be obvious, but some might surprise you.


Danny Woodhead

RB, San Diego

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 5 Fantasy Points

Ryan Mathews

hasn’t done much with all of the opportunities he has been given. Woodhead’s involvement in the passing game makes him an interesting flex play each week, especially against Oakland.

Roddy White

WR, Atlanta

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 3 Fantasy Points

White tied his season high of three catches last week, but he also had nine targets which is more than twice as many than in any other game. Atlanta has to come out and make a statement this week. White’s production will increase even though he’s not quit back at 100% yet.

Jason Avant

WR, Philadelphia

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 4 Fantasy Points

The New York Giants are a mess on defense and this game should be high scoring with a lot of big plays.
DeSean Jackson

is the clear No. 1 receiver, but Avant should see plenty of action as well.


Daryl Richardson

RB, St. Louis

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 16 Fantasy Points

Richardson’s touches have been decreasing every game this season and that trend probably won’t stop this week. His 2.7 yards per carry is just one of the reasons why he is in the doghouse. It’s unfortunate that he won’t be able to take advantage of the tasty Jacksonville matchup this week.

Hakeem Nicks

WR, New York

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 16 Fantasy Points

Victor Cruz

is the only New York Giant worth starting. Even against the abysmal Philadelphia defense.

Cecil Shorts

WR, Jacksonville

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 14 Fantasy Points

Justin Blackmon

is back, Shorts is a little banged up and
Blaine Gabbert

is still the quarterback. Three reasons to stay away from Shorts for now.

Sidney Rice

WR, Seattle

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 12 Fantasy Points

Rice has four catches in three games if you don’t count when Seattle played Jacksonville. Yawn.

Brandon Pettigrew

TE, Detroit

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 13 Fantasy Points

Pettigrew posted a moderately subpar line last week against Chicago in what is a best case scenario for him. It’s amazing he can’t be a fantasy relevant tight end in Detroit’s offense, but his stone hands are tough to over come.
