Fantasy football projections, Week 5: Ravens vs. Dolphins featuring Joe Flacco, Torrey Smith and Mike Wallace

We break down the Week 5 matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins.

The Week 5 match up between the Baltimore Ravens in Miami Dolphins features two teams on the rebound after taking losses in Week 4. We've got all fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Baltimore Ravens

Quarterback Joe Flacco had to come from behind in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but could not overcome the team's first-half deficit. He'll be even more press to perform going into Week 5 as receivers Marlon Brown, Brandon Stokley and Jacoby Jones are all listed as questionable going into the game against the Dolphins.

There's a good chance that all of those players will be able to play. Should that be the case, punt returner Tandon Doss will fill in the opposite Torrey Smith. Doss has all four of his catches in the limited look he got against the Bills. It's a good thing Smith scored his first touchdown of the season last week and looked like a fantasy beast because the Ravens are going to need everything they can get out of him against Miami.

Miami Dolphins

After complaining about not getting enough targets in his first game with the team, wide receiver Mike Wallace has found himself playing below average for last few weeks. After notching his first 100-yard game and touchdown of the season in a win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2, Wallace has just five catches for a total of 46 yards in the last two games combined.

A large part of the Dolphins offense in Week 5 will probably come from running back Lamar Miller, who looked really good against the Saints in Week 4. Miller ran the ball 11 times for 62 yards and his second touchdown of the season. Although he isn't getting 20-plus carries a game the way the premier backs in football normally do, he's been effective when given the ball to say the least.
