It’s Thursday and CBS Sports Fantasy Football expert Dave Richard joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich for his weekly chat, getting fantasy owners ready for their Week 5 match ups.

Dave has advice for any owners that have a Jets player on their fantasy roster.

“Here’s some good fantasy advice, if you have a Jet on your roster bench him or cut and don’t ever start him because the offense is going to sink real fast here. Tebow’s going to come in, the difference between Tebow last year and Tebow this year is that he actually had some receiver that he could use as a threat.”

One player in question around these parts is Patriots running back Brandon Bolden, who had 137 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in a 52-28 rout of the Buffalo Bills. Will this production continue in the coming weeks?

“I think he’s going to be the closer for the Patriots. I don’t know if Stevan Ridley necessarily done something to lose his grip on the starting job, I think he’s going to keep that, I think he’s going to be in on running downs. I think when the Patriots go to their hurry up offense both guys are going to be off the field and you’ll see a lot of Danny Woodhead, that’s something that could happen on Sunday.”

Ricard also took calls from listeners, giving his advice on who to start and who to sit. Who’s does Dave think will be the better running back in the long run?

Plus what kind of week could owners expect from Peyton Manning going up against the New England defense?
