Week 5 Streaming Targets:
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, New York Giants, CB (v ATL)
This game proves to be a high scorer with lots of passes thrown by either team. Matt Ryan is attempting an average of 38 passes per game and Eli Manning isn’t far behind. Last week, the Vikings starting CBs combined for a stat line of five tackles, one for loss, two assists, an interception and six passes defended. DRC and his opposite CB Prince Amukamara are both ball hawks and could get plenty of chances for interceptions this week. Amukamara is more than likely owned as the CB2 in most leagues but if he is available grab him over DRC. Either way the Giants’ CBs are in for good scoring opportunities this week.
Prediction: 5 tackles (3 solo), 1 Pass Defensed, INT chance: 33%

Janoris Jenkins, St Louis, CB (@PHI)
After watching Nick Foles’ last two games I can come to two conclusions. The first is that the Eagles like to throw the ball a whole lot (41.5 per game so far), secondly, whilst Foles’ has been effective at getting the ball down the field (Up to week 4 he had the most throwing yards in the NFL) but he has had several plays over thrown and quite a number of bad throws that were very lucky not to be picked. Now I like Foles but I do think he is due a big INT game, and Janoris Jenkins is the type of CB who can make those plays. Jenkins is coming off a pick six in Week 3 and is averaging ten points per game, 6th at CB.
Prediction: 6 tackles (4 solo) 1 Pass Defensed, INT Chance 33%
Mike Adams, Indianapolis, S (v BAL)
The Colts safety managed a pair of picks in his last outing, but his main source of points has been through tackles. A mediocre ILB group in front of him combined by Baltimore’s run-first strategy will lead to numerous one open field tackle opportunities. Get Mike Adams on your roster this week and make the most of his matchup.
Prediction: 10 tackles (6 solo), INT Chance: 15%
Kendrick Lewis, Houston, S (@DAL)
Dallas running back Demarco Murray has been excellent this season, and he has been handed the ball a whole lot. In fact nobody has more rushing attempts this season than Dallas (130). In addition, his yards per carry (5.1) indicated he has several big runs where he has burst into the secondary. I think Dallas will continue to lean on the run and allow Romo to manage the game, meanwhile Lewis and Swearinger (likely owned) will soak up a tonne of tackles.
Prediction: 11 tackles (7 solo), INT Rate: 15%
Good luck this week in your fantasy matchups, keep streaming!
