FANTASY FB: WEEK 5 PLANNER-WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW



It's a bit after noon and here are where some of the fantasy FB studs stand as far starting or sitting.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, Eli Manning will start today. Also active are Browns back Jamal Lewis and Carolina backup back Jonathan Stewart.

Lewis is an interesting play. He could be the typical dud he has shown in 2009, especially since he is not 100 percent with hamstring and ankle injuries. But RotoWorld is reporting that Lewis realizes his starting status is in jeopardy and he plans to have a career day today to show he isn't washed up just yet.
This scenario bears watching....especially with ace receiver Braylon Edwards gone and the Browns expected to rely on the running game.

Inactives include backs Felix Jones, Willie Parker (as expected) and Earnest Graham; tight end Kevin Boss; receivers Roy Williams and Kevin Curtis.
Detroit QB Matthew Stafford will take a back seat to Daunte Culpepper who will start.
