    While Week 5 was without major fantasy injuries -- Jeremy Hill (chest), Eddie Lacy (ankle), Steve Smith (ankle), and Cody Kessler (chest/ribs) were the biggest names, and the severity of their injuries wont be known until later this week -- it still had the usual chaos and confusion. Denard Span Jersey . Backfield situations in Minnesota and Oakland remain confusing, Odell Beckham, Jr. had just four more receiving yards (56) than Giants teammate Bobby Rainey (52), 43-year-old Adam Vinatieri is kicking 54-yard field goals, and two second-year wideouts established themselves as legitimate fantasy assets.---COATES COMES INTO HIS OWNPittsburgh wide receiver Sammie Coates has 50 yards in each of this seasons five games. He followed up his Week 4 quasi-breakout (eight targets, six receptions, 79 yards) with a Week 5 legitimate breakout (11 targets, six catches, 139 yards, two touchdowns). And yet Coates dropped five passes in Week 5, including a sure-thing touchdown, continuing a trend that has haunted him all year. Coates is available in 33 percent of CBS leagues, 60.1 percent of ESPN leagues, and 64 percent of Yahoo leagues. Hes worth an aggressive bid in all formats, especially considering his spike in production has coincided with LeVeon Bells return, which has likely pulled even more attention off Coates.---CAMERON MEREDITH IS NEW KEVIN WHITEThe Bears were dealt a major blow last week when Kevin White (23 targets in his last two games) was put on injured reserve. However, Cameron Meredith stepped up in his absence, with nine receptions on 12 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown. Assuming Brian Hoyer continues to start at quarterback for the Bears -- hes averaged 339 passing yards in the three games hes started and has six touchdowns against zero interceptions in that span -- not only are there enough passes to go around in this Dowell Loggains offense, but Hoyer seems to be going out of his way to avoid Alshon Jeffery (who hasnt gone over seven targets in a game this season), meaning a bigger piece of the pie for Meredith even when Eddie Royal returns to full health.---MARCUS MARIOTA RUNS WILDTheres going to be a lot of talk this week about proceeding cautiously with Marcus Mariota, as the Titans quarterback has only thrown the ball an average of 33 times over five games this season, and has two games without any passing touchdowns. But the counterargument is Mariotas work in the ground game Sunday, as he gained 60 yards on seven carries in Sundays win over Miami. For a fantasy player, those 60 rushing yards are worth six points, which would have taken 150 passing yards to achieve.Mariota has decent matchups against the Browns and Colts the next two weeks and will continue to benefit from a run game featuring a rejuvenated DeMarco Murray and talented Derrick Henry. Owned in 31.9 percent of ESPN leagues, 47 percent of Yahoo leagues, and 54 percent of CBS leagues, expect a sizable jump in ownership as Mariota enters Week 6.---MISCELLANY- Will Fuller had 211 yards in his first two games, but has been erratic in the last three, with 31, 81, and 4 receiving yards in Weeks 3, 4, and 5, respectively. As a deep play threat, Fuller has caught just half of his targets this season. With DeAndre Hopkins also disappointing (he has just one game with more than 56 receiving yards in 2016), approach your Texans cautiously, especially with Denvers tough defense looming on the schedule in Week 7.- When the waiver wire opens, dont forget about Jeremy Kerley, who has been in the Chip Kelly system for about a month and a half, yet has established himself as the clear No. 1 receiving option on the 49ers, with 22 targets, 190 yards, and two touchdowns in his last two games.- A few players on the rise in terms of snaps: Rishard Matthews (41), Breshad Perriman (36), Dorial Green-Beckham (32), and Cordarrelle Patterson (48). The best speculative plays of this group are Perriman, a talented wideout who lost all of 2015 to injury and could capitalize on a possible Steve Smith absence, and Matthews, whom the Titans pursued in free agency but has been unable to get into any kind of rhythm this season. Patterson is also an intriguing option -- a 2013 first round pick who has 12 total targets and a touchdown in the last two weeks.---BYE WEEKSRemember to replace and bench your Vikings and Buccaneers, who are off in Week 6.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, Chris Archer Jersey . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. Womens Rays Jerseys . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. . You can watch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Flyers had won seven of eight before dropping their last two outings on consecutive days over the weekend. Philadelphia was handed a 6-3 loss by the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday afternoon before dropping a 4-1 decision to the Rangers the following night in New York City. New Zealand were pleasantly surprised to find some help for their quicks in the pitch at Eden Gardens, fast bowler Matt Henry has said. Henry took three wickets on a day New Zealand kept India to 239 for 7. This could still be a big total given Indias spinners and the absence of Kane Williamson, but it was overall quite a satisfactory day for New Zealand considering they had lost the toss.It was a fair wicket, Henry said. Obviously, coming over here you probably dont expect conditions like that at the start of the day so we knew we had to make the most of that, especially being put in with the ball. It was always going to be tough work through that middle period when it would become a good surface. We had to find ways to put pressure on when we werent taking wickets and as a bowling group that is a box we ticked today.Before they put that pressure through dry bowling, though, New Zealand had to make sure they used the pitch that would have sweated in the preceding days because of the overcast skies and the covers on it. We knew it was important with the new ball to take advantage of it because the wicket had been under covers for a long time so that was going to be a crucial part of the game, Henry said. The way we went about our work today was outstanding. We knew we had to make sure we controlled the run rate because it is very tough in these conditions to take wickets.Moving forward from there it was just important to maintain those [bowling] partnerships through the middle and make sure we could create pressure by building dots. Our spinners were outstanding today. Jeets [Jeetan Patel] and Sat [Mitchell Santner] were fantastic in allowing us to build a lot of pressure, and that manifested to what happened at the end of the day.Patel was in England last week, not even dreaming of playing for New Zealand when an injury to Mark Craig resulted in a call-up. Henry, who hardly ever bowls badly, is not a regular in the New Zealand XI because of the surplus pace resources. He, too, was not part of the original squad, but came in only thanks to an injury to Tim Southee. For such players, keeping themselves fit and prepared is aa big challenge, but New Zealand players have shown they are always prepared. Authentic Rays Jerseys. I knew I had to make sure I did all my preparation, Henry said. Ive still being doing a lot of training and work behind the scenes. Even not being able to play in South Africa, I was still doing a lot of work with the coaches in the nets and making sure I was ready to go if needed. We had a few warm-up games out at Lincoln, some winter training squad one-dayers to keep the loads up.It is easier said than done, though, to retain the sunny attitude when you know your chances are not as frequent as you want them to be. Its never easy but it is one of those things that we have such a strong bowling group, Henry said. It is a good position for us to be in, you just always have to prepare to play and focus on what the team needs and what your role is going to be so if you do get called in you can do what we need to get done.Henry was full of praise for Patel too, who took the wickets of a set Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma. It is a tough ask coming in from England and only having a couple of days to prepare, Henry said. Hes obviously got a lot of experience. He brought a lot of energy in the field and experience and confidence. I thought the way he played today was exceptional, the way both spinners played in tandem. They showed a lot of control and created pressure through those tough periods where it was really hot and important we could control that run rate because we had to keep that squeeze on.While Rahane felt this was a two-paced pitch and that 300 was a good score on it especially considering a Williamson-less New Zealand might have to bat last. Henry said his batsmen were capable of taking the game deep, just as the bowlers did. We have a great batting line-up and obviously it is a shame not to have Kane there but I know our batsmen will [apply themselves], he said. It is going to be a tough day with the heat and things like that. We just have to keep playing the long game and apply it as best we can.
