Welcome to Week 5 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.
Unbelievably, we are already into October and a third of the fantasy regular season as blown by. Hopefully, you are 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 Packers from lineups this week and hopefully, we have no surprises this week. We are now fleshing out a real sample on what we have on a team basis. As always, with the more information we acquire, the most robust our evidence-based approach can be.
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 each Wednesday and enjoy the games.
