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).
