Week 5 Fantasy Football Predictions [EdMcGon]

Time to get out the fantasy crystal football, which is clearly broken when it comes to kickers. But we will see what it says anyway.

I will also say the game of the week should be the Giants-Redskins. For you defensive purists out there, maybe not so much.

QB: Mark Brunell has been hot lately. Expect this to continue against the Giants, who seem a little "short" on defense lately.

On the flip side, expect Eli Manning to also have a good game against the Redskins, who are still missing Shawn Springs in the secondary.

RB: For my no-brainer of the week, go with Larry Johnson against Arizona. Matt Leinart may never see the field.

If "Fragile" Fred Taylor can stay healthy, he should have a big day against the Jets.

WR: Look for Troy Williamson to put it in the end zone against the pussycats from Detroit. He should also rack up some good yardage too.

Santana Moss. 'Nuff said.

Also, let the Torry Holt/Isaac Bruce tandem ride this week against the Packers "Cheese Whiz" defense.

TE: If you have either Jeremy Shockey or Chris Cooley, feel good about this week.

K: I will take George Blanda and Jan Stenerud. They should do as well as anyone I would pick.

Seriously, Lawrence Tynes looks like a good pick against Arizona's aerobics defense (bend and keep bending).

Gotta love Ryan Longwell against the Detroit "Pussycats". If Minnesota's offense fails to convert a third down at any point, it will undoubtedly already be within field goal range.

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS: The Chiefs look sweet against Arizona's red-faced birds. Dante Hall might even put one in the end zone for them.

Take the Colts against the rebuilding Titans. Welcome to the NFL, Vince Young.
