While the focus in fantasy football is often on the running backs who are out, plenty of wide receivers are banged up as well. Case in point, the Week 5 rankings do not include A.J. Brown, Chase Claypool, Julio Jones, Sterling Shepard, or Darius Slayton. Based on their injuries, it seems like those wideouts are going to miss another week.
A group of receivers to keep an eye on for fantasy purposes is the Cincinnati Bengals. Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase have been putting up great numbers this season. Higgins has missed the past two games with a shoulder injury, but in the first two weeks of the season, he had a touchdown in each game. Chase has four touchdowns on the year and Boyd has one, but he had 118 yards in Week 4. All three receivers are ranked within the top 40 for Week 5.
