Week 5 Fantasy Soccer Quarterback Rankings

Fantasy soccer house owners received a shock set of byes final week when the Steelers-Titans recreation was postponed, however this week the official byes kick in. Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford are omitted from our from our Week 5 fanntasy QB rankings because of this, however we would not precisely say we’re “lacking” them. The standard high tier of stud quarterbacks seemingly all face weak opponents, and there is a stable center tier of high-quality sleepers who even have favorable matchups.

This inform us two issues: There are quite a lot of unhealthy defenses this yr, and there is no excuse for beginning a shaky QB this week. Carson Wentz (@ Steelers) and Tom Brady (@ 49ers) are about the one “beginning” QBs with unhealthy matchups on paper, and whereas only a few Wentz house owners will should be talked out of sitting him, Brady house owners possible will need to journey with the GOAT after his five-TD recreation. Far be it from us to speak you out of that, however there are different worthwhile choices when you’re leery of Brady on the highway on brief relaxation.

WEEK 5 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Operating again | Huge receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Our high 10 might be nearly as good as it will be all yr. You realize these guys are must-starts, and also you’re solely downside is when you’ve got two of them (or none of them). The hardest omission right here is Drew Brees (vs. Chargers), who’s normally higher at residence and will get Michael Thomas (ankle) again, however the matchups for Teddy Bridgewater (@ Falcons) and Kirk Cousins (@ Seahawks) are each higher. When you’ve got Brees and need to simply persist with him, there’s nothing unsuitable with that. In spite of everything, the Chargers did simply get lit up by Tom Brady and the Bucs passing assault to the tune of 5 passing touchdowns, however Brees has been much more up and down than Brady this yr.

WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS:
Operating again | Huge receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

When you’re digging deeper for sleepers, Daniel Jones (@ Cowboys), Gardner Minshew (@ Texans), Philip Rivers (@ Browns), Justin Herbert (@ Saints), and Jimmy Garoppolo (vs. Dolphins) all seem like legit choices. Rivers has the bottom ceiling given his mediocre play since Week 1, however we all know he can sling it in any given week. Jones presents his personal set of dangers, however Dallas’s protection has stopped anybody all yr and Jones feels overdue for a breakout. 

Clearly, there is no assure that each one of those quarterbacks will come by way of — simply have a look at how Jared Goff unexpectedly struggled towards the Giants — however on paper, this shapes as much as be one other large quarterback week. Cross your fingers that you do not have the shock bust, and benefit from the manufacturing.

Notice: Test again all through the week, as we’ll proceed to replace our QB rankings up till kickoff based mostly on the most recent information and damage updates.

These rankings are for four-point passing TD leagues.
