2020 Fantasy Football Week 5 Rankings


Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 5 Rankings!

Week 4 definitely tested our patience. We had a game postponed due to COVID, another game almost pushed back a day. Then we had Monday Night Football where we had Davante Adams who practiced last week still get scratched. Then the Falcons receivers just rip the hearts out of many, including myself. Julio Jones only played a half, and Calvin Ridley caught zero passes on five targets.

We’re watching many players stocks fall who we were hoping to rely on too, which is not making things any easier.

Now we are entering bye week territory. This week only two teams are on bye, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions. Although watch to see if the Tennessee Titans can get back on the field.

Each week I will be giving some notes for players you will want to keep an eye on as the week progresses. It will be mostly injury-related, but anything that could affect the rankings, that we know about, will be mentioned. Then you can come back and review the rankings as lineup lock get closer.

  • Austin Ekeler out 4-6 weeks with a Grade 2 hamstring strain
  • Nick Chubb is out multiple weeks with a knee injury
  • Julio Jones aggravated his hamstring in Week 4. Feels like he won’t play.
  • Cam Newton is also unlikely to play as he needs to test negative twice before he can play again.
  • O.J. Howard suffered an Achilles injury that is likely a tear.
  • Zack Moss is still dealing with a toe injury that forced him to miss Week 4.
  • KJ Hamler is dealing with a hamstring injury.
  • Phillip Lindsay sidelined with a toe injury.
  • Henry Ruggs still questionable with a hamstring injury.
  • Mike Williams also questionable with a hamstring injury.
  • Cam Akers is expected to return this week.
