Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 5

The marriage between Allen Robinson and the Rams has not worked out for fantasy managers through the first four games of the season.

I am hoping I am wrong about being wrong. But my Week 5 fantasy wide receiver rankings reflect me finally admitting a player on which I swung and missed.

That player is Allen Robinson. I have him ranked as the 55th-best WR this week and the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) barely has him inside the top 50. He's not even a WR4 this week.

Some of it has to do with the fact that Robinson is facing the Cowboys, who are the 10th-stingiest team in allowing fantasy points to WRs. 

But the fact that Robinson has just one score and not even 100 receiving yards total this season is definitely alarming.

See below for the rest of my Week 5 WR rankings.
