The Worksheet: Week 5 Fantasy Football, All You Need To Know

Welcome to Week 5 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.

Unbelievably, we’re already into October and a third of the fantasy regular season has blown by. Hopefully, you’re sitting in a good place through four weeks. Week 5 has two teams on bye, so make sure you remove all of your Lions and the litany of Dolphins assets you may have from lineups.

As the author, it’s imperative that I note that this is an expectations-based column over a linear start/sit forum. The labels for each subset of players for each game is simply the vehicle for those expectations and have a different context for each player. 

This article will be updated throughout the week to reflect major news or injury implications. I encourage that you use the game by game tables and data points here in conjunction with the player rankings that will be available every week this season on Thursdays and enjoy the games.
