Locos and Fortes highlight list of games in Week 5
Adam Cichoski | Sports writer | @adamcichoski
This season has been tight as five of the ten teams are 2-2 and only one team is winless while two teams remain undefeated. That is about to change.
Game of the Week:
The Las Vegas Locos (4-0) and Slammin Fortes (4-0) are the only undefeated teams left and this week they go head to head. Late round draft picks have bloomed for the Locos and he expects Tyrod Taylor and Todd Gurley to carry his team. Along with big games from receivers Julio Jones and Sammy Watkins. Fortes gets Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski back this week, a combination that have carried his team through the whole season. With a solid roster all around, boasting runningbacks Jamaal Charles and Matt Forte, Fortes feel confident to remain the only undefeated team this season, but this one will be close.
Poff for America (0-4) look to win their first game this week against Here so I don’t get Fined (2-2). Poff looks to receivers Demaryius Thomas, DeAndre Hopkins, and Keenan Allen to carry his team, along with Carson Palmer at quarterback. Poff believes this could be their first win. Fined expects Peyton Manning to pick apart the Raiders defense, while the return of Marshawn Lynch would bring a huge lift. A big game from Chris Johnson could be the one that puts Fined over the top.
Mr. Sports Editor (2-2) and Amazing St. Patrick’s (2-2) both look to go over .500 while the other will fall below it. Editor needs Frank Gore to have a big game against a Texans defense that hasn’t stopped anything all season. The return of Antonio Gates is something he’s been looking for since the season began. Patrick’s once again knows he will get a big game from Aaron Rodgers. After a huge game, he looks to LeGarrette Blount to have another one, while receivers Allen Robinson and Larry Fitzgerald have boom or bust potential. Their play may be the deciding factor.
Team Morin (1-3) looks to stop their losing skid against Breesus King of the Drews (2-2) who have won their last two games. Drews haven’t lost a game since running back Le’Veon Bell came back, and with Phillip Rivers leading the league in passing yards Drews have looked unstoppable as of late. Morin needs CJ Anderson and TY Hilton to turn around their thus far disappointing seasons. Another big game from Sam Bradford would be welcomed, and the sooner LeSean McCoy gets on the field, the better for Morin.
Eazy G (2-2), after starting the season strong looks to end his two game losing streak by beating Victory Formation (1-3). Victory Formation got their first win last week and look to build on it. Formation is on the Mariota Train, and will be starting him this week. Devonta Freeman has been unstoppable the past two weeks, scoring six touchdowns. A.J Green continues to be a solid option and with another big game from Doug Martin, Formation is in position to win this game. Eazy G has most of his starting lineup and bench on their Bye Week. Still, with names like Jeremy Hill, Antonio Brown, Julian Edleman, and C.J Spiller, you can’t count out Eazy G.
This game will be a good one, with so many teams looking to get over .500 and the two last undefeated teams going head to head, this is a week to watch.
