2010 Week 5 fantasy football preview with projections: Falcons at Browns

The Falcons are on a three game winning streak and have forced three turnovers in each game of that streak. Jake Delhomme, no stranger to turnovers, returns for the Browns this week. However, there’s more to that matchup.

Will Peyton Hillis rumble to another 100 yards? How many yards will Roddy White amass against the Browns pass defense?

Matchups

Remember that Jake Delhomme reference a few words ago? Yeah, here’s the rest: In two games against Atlanta last season, Delhomme threw for 589, 3 TDs and no interceptions. Let’s pile on: The Falcons gave up 365 yards and 3 TDs two games ago.

Atlanta is 11th in the NFL against the run going up against emerging star running back Peyton Hillis, who has rushed for more than 240 yards in his last two games.

On the other side, the Browns are prone to giving up big games to wide receivers. Roddy White is prone to having huge games. Cleveland also gave up 371 yards passing last week.
