Fantasy Fix: Todd Gurley running hot in Week 5 rankings

The Week 5 fantasy football rankings are up along with a potpourri of notes, thoughts and whatnot to hopefully help with lineup and season-long decisions...

During my weekly fantasy football podcast, we the following: If we redrafted leagues right now, which running backs would you select over Rams rookie Todd Gurley, who dominated in his first full game last week. My answer:

Adrian Peterson

Le'Veon Bell

Jamaal Charles

Eddie Lacy

Matt Forte

Marshawn Lynch

That's it, that's list.

Jeremy Hill is close, but he must fend off Giovani Bernard every game. LeSean McCoy is hurt. C.J. Anderson is a mess and DeMarco Murray is currently lost. DeVonta Freeman isn't there yet, but ask me again if he produces against the Redskins formidable run defense. Mark Ingram is producing in all formats, but C.J. Spiller and Khiry Robinson might snake valuable touches.

Gurley looked like a rock star in the second half of the Rams' surprising road win against the Cardinals. Not only are we talking talent, but opportunity. St. Louis' offense lacks playmakers, meaning it will lean heavily on the powerful runner plenty going forward.

His Week 5 matchup at Green Bay isn't ideal; the Packers have only allowed 102 rushing yards combined over the last three weeks. Oh, you're still starting the rookie, just don't expect tier 1 level production this time, but close enough.

  • If there are any running backs I didn't mention that you would select over Gurley, let us know in the comments section.

Redskins need to stop Cowboys' Cole Beasley to win in Week 7

Redskins need to stop Cowboys' Cole Beasley to win in Week 7

When the Redskins take on the Cowboys on Sunday in Week 7, there's one player NBC Sports Washington's resident GM Charley Casserly says they need to contain in this week's "Matchup to Watch."

The player: Wide receiver Cole Beasley

The comparison: Randall Cobb (Packers), Jamison Crowder (Redskins)

Who will cover him: Casserly's guess? Fabian Moreau

The key for the Redskins: Get physical with him. "Jam Beasley off the line of scrimmage," Casserly says, "reroute him and be physical with him."

Redskins vs. Cowboys Week 7: Time, TV channel, Live Stream, How to Watch

Most Redskins fans wait all year for this particular Sunday, the Cowboys are coming to Fed Ex Field

The problem is the Redskins have not faired well in this rivalry over the last few years. The Cowboys have won four straight and eight of 10 against the 'Skins. Dallas has struggled away from Jerry's World this season, going 0-3 in road games. 

The Cowboys offense exploded against the Jacksonville Jaguars, one of the top defenses in the NFL. Ezekial Elliott rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown. Dak Prescott was effective through the air and on the ground, rushing for 82 yards and touchdown and throwing for a pair of scores. Prescott connected with Cole Beasley nine times for 101 yards and both touchdowns.

Dallas' offense isn't cured yet. The Cowboys still remain 29th in the NFL in total yards per game.

The Cowboys strength is on defense. Dallas is second in the league in points allowed per game (17.2) and fourth in yards allowed per game (315.2). Demarcus Lawrence can wreak havoc coming off the edge. He has 5.5 sacks this season. The Cowboys MLBs of Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch have been very active this year, both ranking in the top 10 in tackles. 

That's what the Redskins have to deal with in Week 7.
