\NFL football is back, and for many Americans that means participating in fantasy football leagues. Fantasy football is scored by how many touchdowns, yards, and catches the player on your team has. Defenses get points for turnovers and holding the opposing team to a small amount of points and kickers get points for extra points and field goals. Week 5 top performers were:
1. Josh McCown, Cle QB: Cleveland Browns quarterback had a big week 5, going 36-51 and throwing for 457 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Browns beat the Ravens 33-30, and McCown finished with 35 fantasy points.
2. Doug Martin, TB RB: The Tampa Bay running back rushed for 123 yards and 2 touchdwons, and caught 3 passes for 35 and a touchdown. The Buccaneers beat the Jaguars 38-31 and Martin finished with 33 fantasy points.
3. Eli Manning, NYG QB: The younger Manning brother seems to be doing a lot better than his older brother Peyton. Eli went 41-54passing with 441 yards with 3 touchdowns. He led his Giants to beat the 49’ers 30-27 while racking up 28 fantasy points.
