Week 5 Fantasy Soccer Working Again Rankings

It is by no means a great factor when accidents change into the first story on the operating again place, however that is precisely what occurred final week. Nick Chubb (knee), Kenyan Drake (chest), and Austin Ekeler (hamstring) all went down with accidents. Their statuses may have a big-time influence on our Week 5 fantasy RB rankings, however the excellent news is that some reinforcements might return to the rankings within the type of Le’Veon Bell, Raheem Mostert, and Phillip Lindsay. Nonetheless, some fantasy homeowners might need to search out sleepers and streamers to offset among the accidents and bye weeks.

Weekly top-10 again Aaron Jones willl be idle this week, whereas the Lions trio of Adrian Peterson, D’Andre Swift, and Kerryon Johnson shall be unavailable, as nicely. Jones’ absence may have the most important influence on our rankings, however Peterson and Swift each garner flex consideration, so the place as an entire is a bit thinner.

WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Working again | Vast receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Probably the most noticeable change within the rankings this week is Kareem Hunt’s spot as a normal RB2. Chubb (knee) hasn’t but been dominated out, but when he’s, Hunt will immediately change into an RB1, even in a troublesome matchup with a rock-solid Colts protection. He can do injury as a runner and as a pass-catcher, so he ought to have a strong week. D’Ernest Johnson shall be a possible flex play after he racked up a number of yardage splitting carries with Hunt. In the meantime, Joshua Kelley, who will take over many of the work with Ekeler (hamstring) absent, will be trusted as a strong RB2 although the Saints are stronger towards the run than they’re towards the cross.

WEEK 5 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Vast receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Different risers this week embrace Todd Gurley (vs. Panthers), David Johnson (vs. Jaguars), and Antonio Gibson (vs. Rams). All three are high-volume gamers in favorable matchups, to allow them to be trusted as top-25 performs.

When you’re in search of sleepers, Devonta Freeman may very well be in for a pleasant recreation, as he is in a good matchup with the Cowboys. It is going to be his third recreation with the Giants, so if he is comfy sufficient and the Giants can keep shut in that contest, he ought to have an opportunity to put up some strong numbers. Latavius Murray (vs. Chargers) and Gus Edwards (vs. Bengals) is also sneaky flex performs — Murray for his regular position in a high-scoring offense and Edwards for his bigger-than-you-think position in a extremely favorable matchup.

Reminder: As at all times, we count on to make loads of modifications to those RB rankings all through the week, so examine again for updates.

These rankings are for normal, non-PPR leagues.
