It’s a week early, but savvy fantasy owners make moves before the competition.  Week 5 byes include the Cowboys, Ravens, Browns, Dolphins, Redskins, and Rams.  The first two teams on the list have heavily used fantasy options that owners will have to replace.  Bernard Scott is the man to target with Cedric Benson’s pending 3 game suspension, though it looks like he will play while the appeal process goes through in week 4.  Scott should get the bulk of the carries shared with Brian Leonard, but Scott’s big play ability makes him an enticing option to own.  He will also score points in the passing game especially in PPR leagues.  Another intriguing add is Steven Ridley of the Patriots averaging 5.9 yds per rush this season.  Nobody in the backfield has put up starter worthy numbers in the Pats pass happy scheme, but this preseason darling had his best game last week with 6 rushes for 42 yards and an 8 yard reception he should be good for 8-10 touches a game.
