8 Big-Name Players You May Want to Avoid in Week 5
After the Green Bay Packers' Week 3 loss to NFC North rivals the Detroit Lions, quarterback Aaron Rodgers went on his usual radio show and asked panicking Packers fans to "R-E-L-A-X. Relax." The team had started 1-2 in each of the past two seasons and still made the playoffs; last year, the Packers still earned a berth in spite of losing Rodgers to a broken collarbone for much of the year. While things looked like a mess to start, perhaps there was still plenty of hope with 13 games left to play.
It's now Week 5, and last night's game saw the Packers absolutely steamroll the Minnesota Vikings on their way to their second consecutive win. Rodgers' Xanax-like mantra now calms the consciousness of all of Pack Nation: R-E-L-A-X.
For those of you whose fantasy teams are at .500 or below right now, don't panic. There's still plenty of football to play. Just relax, don't make any panic moves, or burn your team to the ground just yet. When you assess your roster, do it carefully and in a rational way and things will start falling into place. As you calmly evaluate your lineups this week, who are some players you need to bench in order to have piece of mind?
