Fantasy Football: Week 5 players studs and duds

The studs who are likely to give you double-digit points.....

St.Louis back Steven Jackson is healthy again and he's facing the Detroit Lions. A great combo for fantasy football team owners who have him.
Despite Kansas City being the last 3-0 team in the NFL, most fantasy football "experts" are not giving them any respect and telling you to stay away from their players this week against Indianapolis. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has the Chiefs rolling and I urge everyone to play quarterback Matt Cassel, back JamaalCharles, receiver Dwayne Bowe and tight end Tony Moeaki. While the Chiefs might not beat the Colts, at the very least they will be playing catch up and Cassel will be throwing early and often, including to Charles coming out of the backfield.
Jacksonville back Maurice Jones-Drew should also have a field day at Buffalo. And speaking of Buffalo, with back Marshawn Lynch traded to Seattle, Bills back Fred Jackson gets his first shot to start this season and should also be motivated to have a great day against the mediocre Jaguars defense.
Others to key on are Atlanta QB Matt Ryan, Baltimore receiver Anquan Boldin, Jets receiver Santonio Holmes and Washington tight end Chris Cooley.

The duds to stay away from this week...

Denver back Laurence Maroney will play in place of injured Knowshon Moreno. Unfortunately for Maroney he has to face Ray Lewis and the Ravens bad-boy defense.
If you're thinking about playing Carolina QB Jimmy Clausen be advised he will face one of the hottest defenses in the NFL - Chicago.
Philadelphia back LeSean McCoy, hampered by a rib injury, is expected to start at San Francisco. But the 49ers defense has been tough on backs this season and will be especially be tough since they will be looking for a win at home.
