Usually I use a case, but after a terrible experience with a spek case on my old s4, I'm thinking about only using a screen protector on my nexus 5? Any opinions? I do drop my phone, but not often and usually from 4 ft at most. I'm thinking about one of those zagg screen protectors...

I've found that since gorilla glass 2 screen protectors are a thing of the past. I haven't used one on my last two phones and I have no scratches on them. I usually use just a slim tpu case and no screen protector.

Guess it just depends on what is a more horrible experience : whatever happened with your last case or coughing up a bare minimum $150 to fix the screen if you break it. Not that it's guaranteed you won't break your phone with a case, but your odds certainly improve.

Case is the most important. SP will save you a few scratches over time where as a case might save you $350.
