Fantasy Football Week 5 Recap


Cory Parson, Sports Writer

With Andrew Luck out of his second game this season, the Colts rose above the call and snagged their third straight win this season. With Luck out, it left running back Frank Gore to run all over the Texans defense and score a respectful 15 fantasy points.

Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins both led their respective teams in receiving yards, both scoring more than 25 points.

Doug Martin, of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, scored a monstrous 33 fantasy points against a struggling Jacksonville defense. He had over 100 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Also, Antonio Gates caught 9 passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns. He had a total of 30 fantasy points Monday night.

In a surprise, quarterback Josh McCown scored 35 fantasy points when he threw for 457 passing yards and 2 touchdowns. Along with a 12 yard rushing touchdown as the Browns beat the Ravens.
