Last hurrah for Khiry Robinson?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

While the Saints didn't accomplish much Week 4 at Dallas, one thing they did do is confirm that Khiry Robinson is indeed their preferred ball carrier with Mark Ingram sidelined by a broken hand. Of course, with the reports of Ingram coming back in Week 7 and the Saints on bye in Week 6, Week 5 against Tampa Bay might be your last real opportunity to start the second-year back. And it's one I advise you to take.

The Buccaneers are just two weeks removed from a blowout loss at Atlanta, and the Saints are just as explosive on offense. Based on what we've seen from the Buccaneers defense through four games, I don't think it has the chops to keep the game close. And when the Saints pull ahead, that's when Robinson will go to work.

It's a bit of a hunch, but considering Robinson got 18 carries in the first game Ingram missed two weeks ago, the only way he doesn't make a relevant Fantasy contribution (barring injury, of course), is if the Buccaneers jump out to an early lead like the Cowboys did last week. And based on what we've seen from the Buccaneers offense through four games, I don't think it has the chops to do that.

The Buccaneers are lacking in chops, basically.

Heath Miller should feast in Week 5
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Jaguars have proven nearly incapable of slowing down tight ends this season, a good sign for any Heath Miller owners heading into the Steelers' Week 5 matchup.  

Miller is coming off his best performance of the season, and should be able to keep rolling this Sunday. The Jaguars gave up 52 Fantasy points to tight ends through the first three games, though they did hold Antonio Gates to just three receptions for 30 yards in Week 4.

The Steelers should be able to light the Jaguars up through the air, and Miller should be a big part of that. With this kind of matchup on the way, Miller should be active in all Fantasy formats for Week 5.

IR might be destination for Cardinals QB Carson Palmer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Despite claiming that the shoulder of Carson Palmer is improving, Bruce Arians has indicated that the Cardinals quarterback could be placed on the injured reserve with plans to return list.

He added, however, that such a decision will not be made in the near future, according to Fox Sports.

Palmer has not played since the season opener.

Ben Roethlisberger looking to keep rolling in Week 5
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is off to the most productive start of his career, and he will look to keep rolling in Week 5 against the Jaguars.

The only concern Fantasy owners should have about Roethlisberger's value in Week 5 is whether he will throw enough or rack up the kind of numbers you are hoping for. Roethlisberger is attempting 35.3 passes per game, and passing for 273 yards as a result. If the Steelers don't open up a lead early and shut the passing game down, he should easily reach his season averages against a defense that is allowing opposing quarterbacks to average 28.0 Fantasy points per game.

The good news is, opposing quarterbacks are attempting 40-plus throws per game against the Jaguars, mostly because it is just too easy to pass against them not to. Roethlisberger should put together another solid game, and should be considered a strong starting option for Week 5.
