Jordan Howard and Ito Smith Headline List of Must Add Running Backs for Week 5
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 5: Running Backs
Last week we touted Wayne Gallman and Darrell Williams as must add running backs and they produced admirably for anyone that listened to our advice. This week, Jim Day and I are back with two other running backs to scoop up off the Waiver Wire that can help fill a hole due to bye weeks or an injured player.
Falcons running back Ito Smith and Eagles rusher Jordan Howard are somehow available in over 65% of leagues. Smith may play second fiddle to Devonta Freeman but considering Freeman's injury history and the Falcons' usage of Smith inside the red-zone, make Atlanta's second year back a viable fantasy football commodity. Meanwhile Jordan Howard scored twice against the Packers in Week 4 , he too was utilized more near the goal-line compared to teammate Miles Sanders.
