Grading The 4 Most Confusing ESPN Fantasy Football Projections For Week 5: Johnson, Brady, Woods, And Cutler



(Scoring is based on standard ESPN format)

Welcome back, guys! Phew, after a dud in Week 3, we’ve righted the ship, and improved to 11-4 on the season. Now let me clarify something: The record reflects if we accurately assessed ESPN’s projection to be too high or too low.

That being said, we’re doing pretty well, considering how nutty this season has been (aren’t they all?) Here’s the tape:

- Stevan Ridley doesn’t get 10 fantasy points because he’s not an every down back right now. Plain and simple. He got 7.
- Darren Sproles popped off like we predicted. 23 points, compared to the 8 ESPN had projected
- We were flat out wrong about Doug Martin. It’s starting to look like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t going to produce very much this year, and Martin’s number’s will suffer (even though he had 27 carries, which should be enough for something respectable fantasy-wise)
- Finally, Daunte Culpepper and Donovan McNabb remained out of football, so, there’s that (don’t worry, we won’t count that in our record)

Here’s what we’ve got for you this week. Sound off if you disagree.

    It’s not clear Haden will shadow Johnson Thursday night. Buffalo’s real WR1 is Woods, who played more snaps than Johnson and it far more talented.

    Johnson is also batteling back from an injury that kept him out of practice Monday.

    Don’t be suprised to see Haden shadow Woods all game if he gets some early targets his way.
