Running Back Rankings Week 5

Mark Ingram is back from suspension. Should you start him and how does this impact Alvin Kamara's ranking?
Running Back Rankings Week 5

If you took a quick look at these rankings before reading this, you might be wondering how on earth Alvin Kamara isn’t the No. 1 running back heading into Week 5 in fantasy football.

 

Of course, he could end up once again being the No. 1 fantasy scorer at the position once again, but Mark Ingram's is returning from suspension this week. Assuming he plays, he will cut into Kamara's workload, at least when it comes to carries.

 

Quarterback Rankings Week 5

Drew Brees should light up the scoreboard in prime time in Week 5
Quarterback Rankings Week 5

Fantasy owners who who faced Jared Goff or Kirk Cousins on Thursday night may have been slightly distraught heading into Sunday's games. Little did they know that three quarterbacks would have more fantasy points than Cousins and one of those (Mitchell Trubisky!) would have more fantasy points than Goff. Whether it is the new roughing the passer rules against quarterbacks or just that quarterback play is better, it's unclear, but plenty of points are being scored by quarterbacks this season. Drew Brees in the No.

Waiver Wire Week 5: Marcus Mariota, Nyheim Hines, Geronimo Allison, Taylor Gabriel

Mariota, finally looking healthy, could be a bye-week replacement for Week 5

The waiver wire column for Week 5 has some players that should be picked up if available, but it also has some players that may have fantasy value as the season progresses. Some of the players who aren’t going to be added immediately may be worth waiting until after waivers run. However, fantasy owners need to keep in mind the bye weeks are upon us, and many players are getting hurt. Tight end in particular has been rough, but the other positions haven’t been great either.

 

NFL Injury Report: Leonard Fournette, LeSean McCoy, Matt Breida, Chris Carson for Week 4

Breida is shaping up to be a game-time decision, frustrating fantasy owners

While the Week 4 injury report may not be long for running backs, some big names appear that fantasy owners need to pay attention to. It’s going to be hard to make start/sit decisions as some of these players are in the late afternoon games as well.

 

NFL Injury Report: Keenan Allen, Doug Baldwin, Larry Fitzgerald, Alshon Jeffery for Week 4

Baldwin is expected to make his season debut on Sunday but should you start him in fantasy?

The list of wide receivers on the Week 4 injury report is the longest it has been all season, so fantasy owners need to make sure they are prepared. Many of these players are coming back from injury, which means it may be hard to trust them their first week back. However, these also are some that have the potential to put up big points, so it’s a risk/reward situation for most.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 4: Sterling Shepard and Other WR/TE Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Also, with tight ends being so awful this season, can you really trust Trey Burton and Jimmy Graham this week?

The bye weeks are here and usually this would wreak havoc to your fantasy football team, causing you to scramble to find and start players you would never start otherwise.

 

Luckily this week, it’s only the Carolina Panthers and Washington Redskins on bye, so from a wide receiver and tight end standpoint, your fantasy team should be just fine, other than those who have Jordan Reed on their roster.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 4: Giovani Bernard and Other RB Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Plus, which Green Bay running back is actually worth starting this week against the Bills?

Are we actually at a point where sitting running back David Johnson is going to be part of your fantasy football roster construction on a weekly basis?

 

So far this season Johnson has done nothing to make us believe that he is a top-three fantasy running back like he used to be. It’s not his fault that for some reason the Cardinals coaching staff has no idea how to use him, but he isn’t helping your fantasy team.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 4: Ryan Fitzpatrick and Other QB/DST Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Is this the week that the "FitzMagic" show ends?

So by now you know that it’s a good idea to start Patrick Mahomes every week seeing that as of right now he is the fantasy football MVP through the first three weeks of the season.

 

But who would have thought that Andy Dalton and Matt Ryan would be better options to start than Russell Wilson so far this season?

 

Plus, if you are into streaming quarterbacks or you just lost Jimmy Garoppolo for the season, there are two really sneaky signal-callers you could start this week.

Running Back Rankings Week 4

David Johnson has been a disappointment thus far. Can you trust him against the Seahawks?
Running Back Rankings Week 4

How the mighty have fallen in the fantasy football running back rankings as we get ready for Week 4. David Johnson has been a perennial top-three fantasy option when he has been healthy for the past three years.

 

Now that the Cardinals don’t know how to use him and refuse to have him line up on the outside, Johnson has been a bust so far this year based on his draft position.

 

Quarterback Rankings Week 4

Ryan Fitzpatrick may have had a hot start, but he faces the Bears in Week 4
Quarterback Rankings Week 4

Fantasy owners who drafted Matt Ryan hopefully started him in Week 4. He threw for five touchdowns as the Falcons (or Saints for that matter) couldn't stop scoring. Ryan was the top quarterback in terms of fantasy points in Week 3. With 374 passing yards, only Ryan Fitzpatrick, Drew Brees and Deshaun Watson had more than Ryan. He faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4 and is the No. 5 quarterback.
