We saw lots of points in Week 4, and NFL Week 5 appears set to give us more of the same. The main slate presents shootout potential in Packers-Lions, Jaguars-Chiefs, Vikings-Eagles and, of course, Falcons-Steelers. We'll be mining those matchups for lineup options while also sorting through a loaded QB menu and looking at the impact of players going down or returning from injuries.

Here's the rundown ...

Cash-game QBs ... 3:10
GPP QBs ... 4:56

Cash-game RBs ... 7:06
GPP RBs ... 9:15

Cash-game WRs ... 10:54
GPP WRs ... 12:53

Cash-game TEs ... 15:51
GPP TEs ... 17:25

Flex plays ... 18:31

Team defenses ... 19:20

And here are the Week 5 lineups for the Crown His Ass Challenge, which saw Kevin win handily in Week 4 ...


Kevin (2 wins)


Jared (1 win)


Matt (1 win)
