Charch: Fantasy Football Add/Drops – Week 5
Sports Fan Insider
By Paul Charchian-
Add: Ryan Torain, Washington Redskins
Last week in the drop area of this page, I implored you to trade Tim Hightower while he had a shred of trade value. I hope you did. Ryan Torain hadn’t had a single carry until last Sunday. That means that the handful of owners who drafted him gave up on him a while ago. He’s almost certainly available in your league. And, it certainly looks like he’ll be the starter for the Redskins beginning next week. Until the Dark Lord of Fantasy Football changes his mind. Again.
Drop: Hines Ward, Pittsburgh Steelers
Hines Ward has experienced declining production in four straight games down to a season-worst one catch for 19 yards last week. If he’s going to continue to decline from there, he’ll be scoreless next week. And the week after that he’ll need to post negative yardage. Antonio Brown is carving into his productivity, and it appears that Ward’s grip on the starting job is getting tenuous.
