I have gotten a few emails and forum questions regarding why players aren't being listed on our rankings. I have also gotten a few start/sit questions involving players who are on a bye week for Week Five.
This is one of the biggest blunders I have seen an owner make. Not remembering bye weeks start this week can be crushing to a fantasy roster and leave an owner looking for scraps on the waiver wire because he forgot to bench a player who isn't playing.
So here is a simple reminder of which players should be on your bench this weekend:
Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, Anquan Boldin, Torrey Smith, Ravens Defense
Washington Redskins: Rex Grossman, Ryan Torain, Roy Helu, Santana Moss, Jabar Gaffney, Fred Davis, Redskins Defense
St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, Steven Jackson, Brandon Gibson
Cleveland Browns: Colt McCoy, Peyton Hillis, Monterio Hardesty, Greg Little, Ben Watson, Mohamed Massaquoi
Dallas Cowboys: Tony Romo, Felix Jones, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, Cowboys Defense
Miami Dolphins: Daniel Thomas, Reggie Bush, Brandon Marshall, Davone Bess
There are obviously many more names that should be included in this list, especially kickers, but at least now you know not to be one of those guys who forgets that a stud or two on your team is off.
