There were not any major upsets in Week 4 as the favorites dominated the schedule. Home teams were 12-2 over the weekend as the Giants and Bengals were the only road teams to win. I continue to lean toward the home team in my selection process, but check out my Week 5 analysis and see if the trend continues …
Week 5 games …
Bengals @ Ravens – A battle for first place in the AFC North takes place in
Raiders @ Giants – Maybe I am too cautious, but I’m not risking my Giants this weekend. It is the third straight game against a very weak opponent and Eli Manning’s status is in question. He hopes to play, but either way, I am going to avoid this one with the numerous options.
Cowboys @ Chiefs – I’m not trusting the Cowboys on the road, even against
Redskins @ Panthers – Two disappointing teams face off in Week 5. The Skins have two wins, though, while the Panthers are 0-3.
Vikings @ Rams – The Vikes are coming off an emotional Monday night win and will travel to
Steelers @ Lions –
Browns @ Bills – Yuck.
Falcons @ 49ers – Interesting game in the NFC.
Texans @ Cardinals – Andre vs. Fitz. This should be fun. Fantasy owners hoping for a lot of points in this one.
Patriots @ Broncos – Big game in the AFC.
Jaguars @ Seahawks – Tough game to call. Are the Jags coming on?
Colts @ Titans – What a difference a year makes.
Jets @ Dolphins –
: Eagles, Vikes, Giants? I’ll go to the AFC for my selection as I am 3-0 in that conference.
Steelers are my Week 5 selection.
