Week 5 Fantasy Player Rankings

NFL Week 5 Fantasy Player RankingsAll Fantasy Player Rankings are educated guesses based on team averages, hot-streaks, injures and for Gridiron Experts, our new Outplay Formula. But here are a few tips that you may not think about when picking players to start:

  • A great receiver on a team that will likely be trailing at half time has better odds of making plays in fantasy football in a come-from-behind shoot-out rather than a WR on a team that is projected to blow someone out and then sit on a lead.
  • Staying with the same logic, a RB on a team that is projected to win big will likely run out the clock late in the late 3rd and 4th quarter to stay conservative and not make any mistakes.
  • A bad group or linebackers can be a dream fantasy match-up for Tightends and or slot receivers.
  • Any time in the pocket is good time, if a team lacks pressure you can expect more deep plays. Check out injuries that matter in our weekly article Inside the Trenches
