Flex Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 5

Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears

Allen Robinson is a WR3/flex player because of his quarterback

Fantasy owners looking to fill their flex spot may have opted for Cordarrelle Patterson in Week 4 and were rewarded with 35 rushing yards... and five receptions for 82 yards and THREE touchdowns. Those numbers are way out of the flex range, but Patterson is still a borderline flex player (depending on your league's format, he would likely be an RB2 but not quite a WR2). Start him with confidence again this week.

Some other wide receivers in the flex range include Odell Beckham Jr., Kenny Golladay, and even Allen Robinson. Beckham and Golladay have struggled with injuries (recovering from) this season. However, Robinson has struggled with inconsistent quarterback play. It isn't clear whether it will be Justin Fields or Andy Dalton at quarterback for Week 5, but Fields' lack of passing is harming Robinson's fantasy value.
