The fifth week of the 2021 Fantasy Football Season is here! We are looking at the first game of Week 5 on Thursday October 7th between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks! Remember, my favorite players usually are on teams that have a Top Offense that can produce lots of Targets and Touchdowns! Let’s review who they are below in this game and if they would be a Starter, Upside Play or Sleeper for Fantasy Football!
Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks
Starters – Cooper Kupp, Matthew Stafford, Darrel Henderson (LAR). Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf (SEA).
Upside Plays – Robert Woods, Tyler Higbee, Rams D/ST (LAR). Chris Carson (SEA).
Sleepers – Van Jefferson, DeSean Jackson, Sony Michel (LAR). Will Dissly, Alex Collins, Gerald Everett, Freddie Swain (SEA).
Should be a fun game to start Week 5. I am hopeful the points come in this one but Thursday night games are tougher to get consistent points scoring. I imagine the Rams will have more of the offensive fire power to get by this Seahawks team in this game. Although Russell Wilson at home should never be ruled out per his game heroics. Looking forward to how this one plays out!
Chris Carson doesn’t look to be trending in the way of playing tonight. Something to certainly monitor. Also, interested to see if Jalen Ramsey will stick with/shadow D.K. Metcalf in this game as the few games that he has recently, Ramsey has held the Seahawks wideout in check during the regular season.
Keep an eye on my Rankings as you have decisions to make for this weekends games as well! Good luck!
