What to do with Anthony Miller, Darnell Mooney in Week 5 fantasy football

Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney could both be under-the-radar plays in the Bears’ Week 5 matchup against the Buccaneers.

Allen Robinson is clearly the best pass catcher on the Chicago Bears, but Nick Foles will need other playmakers to work with. Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney have both been important role players for the bears through four weeks of the 2020 season.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bears WRs Anthony Miller, Darnell Mooney

Miller emerged as a breakout player toward the end of 2019, but the rookie from Tulane is challenging him for the WR2 spot. Mooney has 20 targets while Miller has 19, and the duo have combined 22 targets, 278 receiving yards, and three scores. Mooney has played more snaps for three weeks in a row and has more catches (13) and receiving yards (145).

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Miller and Mooney are worth playing in deeper leagues, but I’d give the edge to Mooney. His nine targets in Foles’ first start of the season bode well for his production.
