Welcome to Week 5 of the 2023 Footballguys Roundtable. Our intrepid panel of fantasy pundits discusses and debates four topics every week. We split the conversation into separate features.
This week's roundtable features these four topics:

Pick two that you believe have more to show us in a meaningful way this year for fantasy lineups.
Joseph Hagan: Michael Wilson is a player that I am excited about moving forward. The Cardinals offense is surprisingly humming with Joshua Dobbs under center and Wilson has emerged as the quarterback's second favorite target behind Marquise Brown. Wilson has 50 or more receiving yards in each of the past three games and broke out in Week 4 with seven receptions, 76 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. The Cardinals seem like they have zero problems giving the rookie a heavy snap share and could be a viable WR3 for the rest of the season.
Reynolds seems to have a grasp as the third, maybe second, receiving option in Detroit. Outside of his goose egg in Week 3, Reynolds has been very consistent. He has seen six or more targets and 66 or more receiving yards in all three games. He holds an 80.55 snap share on offense and is one of Jared Goff's favorite targets to move the sticks.
