Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30245274 Dud: Buccaneers offense vs. San Francisco Dud%3A+Buccaneers+offense+vs.+San+Francisco Fantasy Football

All my preconceived thoughts (I said bench Blount) about this game came to life late Sunday. The combination of a stout Niners' defense, Tampa Bay's youth and the Buccs having to travel three time zones away on a short week just made for fantasy poison. When it was all said and done, Tampa could only muster three points in 60 minutes of action. That's not fair to "action," so we’ll call it 60 minutes of movement. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247265 Stud: Adrian Peterson vs. Arizona Stud%3A+Adrian+Peterson+vs.+Arizona Fantasy Football

Leave it to ADP to carry (no pun intended) the Minnesota Vikings to their first win. The win over the Cardinals wasn't a surprise, but the manner in which the Vikes, namely Peterson, literally punched them in the jaw was a "where was this the last four weeks?" moment. The running back finished with a season-high 29 carries for 122 yards and three first-quarter touchdowns. He's the first player to score three TDs in the first quarter in over a decade. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247298 Dud: Darren McFadden vs. Houston Dud%3A+Darren+McFadden+vs.+Houston Fantasy Football

The NFL's leading rusher had an off week. Run DMC finished with 16 carries for 51 yards and two receptions for 17 yards. Not what we’ve come to expect from the Raiders' running back, but he will remain an automatic start moving forward. Consider it just a hiccup on an emotional day for the Raiders. At least they won, baby. – Ryan Fowler

Brett Davis - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G5_20111009192525284_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G5_20111009192525284_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247295 Stud: Pierre Garcon vs. Kansas City Stud%3A+Pierre+Garcon+vs.+Kansas+City Fantasy Football

As I mentioned on Twitter (@FOXSportsFowler), Garcon is French for, "I told you to start him." The chemistry between Garcon and Curtis Painter is every fantasy owners' dream. Once again, he was targeted a team-high eight times, caught five balls for 125 yards and scored two touchdowns for the second week in a row. If he's still on your waiver wire, go snatch him up. – Ryan Fowler

Michael Hickey - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G4_20111009192345282_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G4_20111009192345282_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30245275 Dud: Kevin Kolb vs. Minneapolis Dud%3A+Kevin+Kolb+vs.+Minneapolis Fantasy Football

Do you want the good news or the bad news? The good? OK. Kolb didn't possess the worst QB rating for the Cardinals on Sunday. The bad news is, it belonged to Richard Bartel, who relieved Kolb on the game's final drive, only to finish 2-for-6 with an interception. Kolb completed only 50 percent of his passes with two interceptions and a fumble. He's thrown only one touchdown compared to five interceptions his last three games. – Ryan Fowler

Bruce Kluckhohn - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G9_20111009193232298_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G9_20111009193232298_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247294 Stud: Dwayne Bowe vs. Indianapolis Stud%3A+Dwayne+Bowe+vs.+Indianapolis Fantasy Football

You are looking at a photograph of undoubtedly the BEST catch of Week 5. It took a trip to Indy for Matt Cassel and Dwayne Bowe to once again make sweet fantasy football memories on the field. If not for Big Ben, Cassel would have earned "Stud" honors, so consider this his shout out. Bowe finished with a season-high seven receptions for 128 yards with two touchdowns. The score to the left only came to fruition after Bowe tipped the ball to himself and snagged it one-handed before he crashed to the turf. He has at least one touchdown in each of the last three games. Bowe knows fantasy. – Ryan Fowler

Brian Spurlock - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G3_20111009192212280_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G3_20111009192212280_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247299 Dud: Michael Vick vs. Buffalo Dud%3A+Michael+Vick+vs.+Buffalo Fantasy Football

This may be harsh for a guy who threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns and chipped in 90 yards on the ground, BUT to throw four interceptions against the 24th-ranked pass defense?! That cost most owners eight points. It's the equivalent of a 20-yard touchdown from an owner's running back – WHOOSH! - wiped right off the board. – Ryan Fowler

Richard Mackson - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G6_20111009192655290_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G6_20111009192655290_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247289 Stud: Sebastian Janikowski vs. Houston Stud%3A+Sebastian+Janikowski+vs.+Houston Fantasy Football

I’m going to lose one of my fantasy matchups because of this man, so I might as well pay homage to what he accomplished on Sunday in Houston. On a day where the franchise was mourning the loss of long-time owner Al Davis, the kicker, who Davis got grief for drafting in the first round, booted four field goals. Three of those field goals came from beyond 50 yards. Now in my league, that’s worth five points a pop. Add a 43-yarder and an extra point and, guys, Janikowski laid 20 points on me. – Ryan Fowler

Kirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G1_20111009191926276_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G1_20111009191926276_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247300 Dud: Kyle Orton vs. San Diego Dud%3A+Kyle+Orton+vs.+San+Diego Fantasy Football

I normally like to give you guys some meat and potatoes to snack on with these "Studs and Duds" blurbs, but Orton has me at a loss for words. To go 6-for-13 for 34 yards, with an interception, passer rating of 21.0 and get benched by John Fox for Tim Tebow in the second half, sir, this may be the worst day of your life. Remember when Miami wanted to trade for him? Yikes. – Ryan Fowler

Ron Chenoy - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G7_20111009192827294_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/09/100911-NFL-fantasy-G7_20111009192827294_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 5 30247292 Stud: Ben Roethlisberger vs. Tennessee Stud%3A+Ben+Roethlisberger+vs.+Tennessee Fantasy Football

Hobbled by a sprained ankle and without his top running back, Roethlisberger kept things simple against the Titans. He finished 24-for-34 for 228 yards, which works out to 6.71 yards per attempt. That’s his lowest passing average of the season. But when he ties his own franchise mark for touchdowns in a game, five, with a makeshift offensive line and against one of the most sound defenses (statistically speaking) in the league, I have to tip my cap to the former Miami (OH) quarterback. – Ryan Fowler
