BEAST DOME SHEEP OF THE WEEK (5):

GAME OVER SUPER MARIOTA

By Muntradamus

BEAST DOME NATION.

Last week was a very bad Week for my BUST of the Week Picks. Rivers threw for 3 TDs, including 1 to Keenan Allen. Devonta Freeman ripped off 3 TDs with AP getting one of his own. What makes a champion is the way they bounce back, and what makes someone a BEAST is when they get it right. Regardless of the outcome, I know I see the game a different way many do, and these are my BUST Picks for Week 5 based off of ECR.

 

BUST OF THE WEEK (5)

 

MARCUS MARIOTA vs. TEN

Muntradamus Rank #19 QB

ECR # 12 QB

Sure you can say Mariota has been doing a great job as a Fantasy QB. So far this season when he faces a real opponent, you cannot say the same. This matchup against the Bills would be a lot worse had this not been coming off of a Bye Week, but I do not see that extra time helping Mariota out as much as it should as the Bills will be coming angry this week. When Mariota does not have a lot of time, a lot of mistakes happen in the process.

JOSEPH RANDLE vs. NE

Muntradamus Rank #32 RB

ECR # 15 RB

No more Lance Dunbar, but what happens when this game goes into blowout mode. If you think the Cowboys will keep running with Joseph Randle who is finally coming back to earth after his quick start, that is just not logical. Once this game goes into blowout mode, Christine Michael if anyone will get a nice little audition.

JUSTIN FORSETT vs. CLE

Muntradamus Rank #19 RB

ECR #5 RB

Browns only need to do one thing Sunday to guarantee a win. Shutting down the non explosive Justin Forsett is just that. Luckily for Forsett this game is at home so the away crowd factor will not be a problem. Forsett will be getting his touches, but Dansby and company will sure to keep 10 eyes on him at all times with no SSS on the field.

KAMAR AIKEN vs. CLE

Muntradamus Rank #54 WR

ECR #32 WR

While everyone loves Aiken going into this week after he turned into the #1 option for Joe Flacco when SSS went down. This week he actually faces a challenge against Cleveland. While it is likely Joe Haden will not be matched up against Aiken on every play, there will be enough times where Flacco simply cannot look his way because of the matchup. On top of that the Ravens will likely rely on their running game heavily this week. Aiken is not guaranteed to be the #1 option in the Ravens Passing game this week, and their passing game could easily be the worst in the league for Week 5.

JOHN BROWN @ DET

Muntradamus Rank #49 WR

ECR #22 WR

He is not that good of a player. Experts are ranking him as if he is Mike Wallace in his prime but the Cardinals are clearly turning into a running football team who can throw it to Larry Fitzgerald and now a healthier Michael Floyd at will. With the Cardinals having so many weapons, you might as well toss a coin and hope to hit Heads 5 times in a row than count on consistency from John Brown.

MARTELLUS BENNETT @ KC

Muntradamus Rank #12 TE

ECR #3 TE

Tellus could find himself blocking a lot on Sunday as the Chiefs bring a lot of heat off the edges. Jay Cutler has taken enough hits and although the quick passes for Martellus will be there, the defense will already be playing close enough to the line of scrimmage as is with the Chiefs likely selling out to shutdown Forte. With no TD Tellus could easily have his entire week hinge on garbage time.
