SB Nation Editors Hangout and discuss Week 5 Fantasy Football match-ups

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire


Come hang out and talk Fantasy Football and just regular football this beautiful Sunday morning of Week 5.

I'll be on with Michael Bean, Brad Wells, Brad Newberg, Kyle Kramer and Christopher Gates on Google Hangout. As far as the Steelers' fantasy options go, I like both Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown (he's a "back-up," according to others who frequented the site this week, remember that), as the Steelers should look to get a little more up-tempo. Ben Roethlisberger is obviously a start, the way he's been playing in recent weeks.

Going against man coverage, it's almost a sin to not try to get Wallace the ball deep at some point, and with that threat likely occupying safeties, opportunities could be had with Brown, or (as weird as this sounds) in the running game.

The return of Rashard Mendenhall could be a factor, although I'm not sure I see him getting more than 12 or 13 carries - which seems to be the standard for Steelers running backs this season.

Maybe that changes today. We're going to discuss these Steelers-related items, and lots of other Fantasy concerns here before your Week 5 lineup is due, so check it out.
