Are you having trouble finding QB situations that you actually like this week? Well, you're not alone. We're looking at an ugly slate of matchups and Vegas numbers and finding ourselves drawn toward some players and situations that we normally avoid. Jared gets us started with some QBs that don't usually garner any fantasy attention. Kevin's going back to a RB who has struggled for 2 weeks straight and might not face as attractive a matchup as it seems. And Matt? Well, with the kids home from school for a long weekend, he's doing all he can just to stay focused. Find out which RBs we're jamming into lineups (besides Le'Veon Bell) and where you can save money to gain salary flexibility in building your teams.

Click here for Jared's top Week 5 picks on DraftKings. Check out our Week 5 rankings for the top values.

And now for the next round of the Crown His Ass Challenge, where Matt finally got on the board in Week 4 ...


Matt (1 win)


Jared (1 win)


Kevin (2 wins)
