Solving Committee Backfields, Week 5 Waivers & What To Do With Draft Busts

In Week 5’s episode of the Apex Fantasy Football podcast, the crew uses the expected points metric to take stock of the committee backfields for the Ravens (1:16), Broncos (5:19), Lions (7:16), Colts (12:47), Rams (17:17), Buccaneers (24:22), 49ers (29:45) and Redskins (33:44).

They do the same for the Cardinals pass catchers (36:34) while giving a pep talk to Marquise Brown and D.J. Moore owners (41:48), ponder how to treat Odell Beckham going forward (46:13) and marvel over Justin Jefferson (50:53).

On the waiver wire, the gang tells you how to navigate and prioritize the Browns backfield after Nick Chubb’s injury (53:46) and hypes up Justin Jackson as a post-Ekeler injury priority (54:50). For those needing help at wide receiver, Darnell Mooney (58:30) and Tim Patrick, Isaiah Ford, and Zach Pascal are also analyzed (1:00:25). They end the waiver wire section by assessing Week 4 breakouts Robert Tonyan (1:02:55) and Damien Harris (1:04:58).

Finally, the Apex crew discusses how to handle fantasy draft busts – whether to sell high, simply bench them, or cut entirely for A.J. Green (1:09:00), Brandin Cooks (1:11:19), Kerryon Johnson (1:14:07), Todd Gurley (1:16:00), and Kenyan Drake (1:18:41).
