2021 Fantasy Football Week 5 Rankings

on

Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 5 Rankings!

Well, I would like to say we are officially a quarter of the way through the season. However, with the extra week of football, we are just under that.

This past weekend we saw injuries to more of our star running backs. David Montgomery is going to be out a few weeks with a knee injury. Also, Joe Mixon is likely to miss time with a knee injury.

This is on top of Christian McCaffrey out with a hamstring and Dalvin Cook aggravating his ankle injury.

We also saw offenses struggle without a couple of their star players. Tampa Bay missing Gronk might be bigger than we thought as they struggled to take out the Patriots. Then Ryan Tannehill and the Titans really struggled without A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.
