Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton to Miss Remainder of 2014 Season

Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton will miss the remainder of the 2014 season due to a knee injury. Keeton suffered a torn ACL in 2013 and returned in time for the 2014 opener but injured his knee again versus Wake Forest on Sept. 13.

With Keeton sidelined, Utah State will turn to sophomore Darell Garretson under center. The sophomore started seven games in 2013 and threw for 1,436 yards and 10 scores.

Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 5

Nick Novak’s hot leg has helped San Diego win its past three games and also is a big reason why he leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 5. The Chargers host the Jets, a team that has struggled to defend the pass and could wear down in the San Diego heat. As good as Novak has been early on, he trails Dallas’ Dan Bailey in fantasy points at the position. Bailey and the surprising 3-1 Cowboys will try and keep things going offensively against Houston in what should be an entertaining battle for Lone Star State bragging rights.

Richard Sherman and the Seahawks’ defense come off of a bye with a Monday night matchup against a turnover-prone Washington offense
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 5

Seattle’s defense has not performed like the No. 1 DST thus far, but the reigning Super Bowl champion’s Week 5 matchup is too tempting to not reinstate them at the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings. The Seahawks may be on the road for their Monday night tilt with Washington, but the Redskins are coming off of a horrendous Week 4 loss to the Giants in which Kirk Cousins alone was responsible for five turnovers. Who are you going to trust more – the “Legion of Boom” or Cousins? That’s what I thought.

Jimmy Graham continues to lead the way when it comes to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 5, but it’s the rest of the top 10 that may open some eyes. Graham, Julius Thomas, Antonio Gates and Greg Olsen are no real surprises, and the same could even be said for Martellus Bennett and Delaine Walker.

Even with several top targets returning from bye, they all take a backseat to the leading scorer at the position in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 5. Antonio Brown currently leads all his peers, thanks to five touchdown receptions, although to be fair he has played in four games. Elsewhere, the health of a couple of No.

DeMarco Murray is leading the NFL in rushing by a pretty wide margin, so it makes sense that he sits in the top spot in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 5.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 5

With just two teams on bye in Week 5, Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings have returned to “normal” for the most part. While Peyton Manning will be back on the field (at home against Arizona), Drew Brees gets the nod for the top spot since his Saints are at home in must-win mode against a Tampa Bay defense that has had problems stopping the pass.
