Fantasy football Week 5: Complete player rankings for every position
Here’s the question everyone's asking ahead of Week 5: Is Devonta Freeman going to put up another 30-point performance? Freeman has been the unquestioned fantasy star of the last two weeks, scoring six touchdowns and racking up 342 yards from scrimmage in Atlanta’s wins over Dallas and Houston. He’ll face a much tougher test this week against a strong Washington run defense.
Whether or not Freeman gets to 30 points again, there will be plenty of stars on the field in Week 5. The Panthers, Vikings, Jets and Dolphins are on bye this week, and we will have at least four teams sitting out every week until Thanksgiving. Your depth will be tested over the next two months. The fantasy owner who can best weather that storm will come out at the end with a playoff berth in his or her hands. Our complete Week 5 player rankings are below.
