Fantasy RB Rankings Week 5: Who to begin, sit at working again in fantasy soccer


A slew of key working backs (Jonathan Taylor, Dalvin Cook dinner, Antonio Gibson, Darrell Henderson, Melvin Gordon) have been “questionable” heading into Sunday’s motion, however Elijah Mitchell was the one one who really wound up being inactive (together with Christian McCaffrey, after all). Even so, game-time selections trigger loads of begin ’em, sit ’em complications, and so they function a reminder that accidents (and byes) are about to change into a problem at this place. Simply ask David Montgomery house owners. Take pleasure in these principally full Week 5 fantasy RB rankings — it could be one of many final occasions you see all these studs and sleepers in a single place for some time.

Many of the acquainted names are close to the highest, however that is a type of weeks the place lots of the statistically favorable matchups are both to the very prime guys (Derrick Henry vs. Jaguars, Dalvin Cook dinner vs. Lions, Nick Chubb vs. Chargers) or to backs in committee conditions, resembling Leonard Fournette/Ronald Jones II (vs. Dolphins), Zack Moss/Devin Singletary (@ Chiefs), Cordarrelle Patterson/Mike Davis (vs. Jets in London), Chase Edmonds/James Conner (vs. 49ers). Damien Harris (@ Texans) and Darrell Henderson (@ Seahawks) are two of the few main backs with extremely favorable matchups.

Quarterback | Operating again | Large receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

That makes it tougher to essentially elevate any sleepers to “must-start” standing, however, as we alluded to within the intro, no less than most backs look like they will be suiting up, and that is most essential. All these committee guys with good matchups simply means there are extra potential sleepers and low-end RB2s/flexes. You won’t like utilizing Edmonds in customary leagues or Conner in PPR leagues most video games, however each are in play in Week 5 after they each had spectacular Week 4’s. The identical goes for Moss/Singletary. Patterson and Davis is a barely completely different story since they do roughly the identical factor and Patterson appears to be enjoying (and producing) extra, however Davis is the extra prone to get goal-line carries, in order that’s one thing to think about in customary leagues. 

Quarterback | Large receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Sadly, with the favorable matchups come the unfavorable ones. Miles Sanders/Kenny Gainwell (@ Panthers), Najee Harris (vs. Broncos), Melvin Gordon/Javonte Williams (@ Steelers), Antonio Gibson vs. Saints, Austin Ekeler (vs. Browns), Saquon Barkley (@ Cowboys), and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (vs. Payments) are all going through groups which have completed an excellent job limiting RBs this yr. We’re not too anxious about Harris, Gibson, Barkley, and Ekeler, as they do plenty of harm by way of the air, however Sanders, CEH, and the Broncos, are somewhat more durable to belief given their struggles this yr. We nonetheless have Edwards-Helaire in our prime 25, however he is not essentially an auto-start.

Damien Williams (@ Raiders) and Chuba Hubbard (vs. Eagles) are each in play after producing no less than 70 whole yards every final week. They need to get the majority of their groups’ RB touches, and that quantity offers them loads of worth in customary leagues. Their pass-catching abilities make them strong PPR performs, too.

Total, this seems to be like an excellent week for RBs. You possibly can argue, to make use of the previous soccer saying about QBs, “when you’ve got two, you could have none,” however at RB, that is not all the time true. In any case, any RB can flop, so it is actually extra about having usable choices that enable you to sleep straightforward going into Sunday’s motion. Likelihood is, your WR3 spot perhaps even QB is sufficient of a multitude to trigger complications, so you do not want any extra out of your working backs. 

Notice: We’ll be updating these RB rankings as wanted all through the week, so verify again for the newest modifications.
