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

We are already into October and nearly a third of the fantasy regular season has blown by. 

Hopefully, you are sitting in a good place through four weeks. Week 5 is our last full week before the bye weeks begin, so be prepared in advance for rosters to potentially need anyone moving forward into the middle of the season.  

We also have another game in London this weekend, so be prepared ahead of time to adjust your lineups. Last week’s game kept us on our toes with Alvin Kamara sitting. 

We are now fleshing out a real sample of what we have on a team basis. As always, 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 you to 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.
