FantasyAces Week 5 Cash/GPP Breakdown
Since FantasyAces has two flex spots, you may be wondering if you should fill those with RBs, WRs, or both. In 0.5-PPR scoring formats, RBs generally offer more consistency, because RBs generally see a much larger workload in terms of touches compared to WR targets and receptions, and WRs aren't able to make up for the difference with only 0.5 points being awarded per reception. In cash games, RBs in the flex are usually the safer choice. That being said, it still all comes down to value -- if there happen to be four really strong WR values and not much at RB, I wouldn't bypass them just because of their position. By the same token, I wouldn't balk at putting a RB in the flex in a GPP if he offered strong value. But when I start building cash lineups, I start out by looking for four RBs to slot in, and when I start building GPP lineups, I start out looking for four WRs to slot in.

Cash Game Plays
QB Matt Ryan $6,950 vs. WAS
Coming into Week 5 second in the league in passing yards , Ryan's only issue fantasy-wise has been his 40 percent market share of Atlanta's 15 offensive TDs. That figure is bound to regress to the mean – the league average is roughly a 2:1 passing-to-rushing TD split. The Falcons have a 27.75 Vegas total, and Matty Ice should have no problem carving up the Redskins, who have allowed a 7:0 TD-to-interception ratio this year.
