2023 Week 5 Fantasy Football Rankings (Saturday Update!)

Week 5 is here! Whether your squad is 4-0, 0-4, or somewhere in between, it’s time to put your team in the best position to bring home a win with my Week 5 Fantasy Football Rankings.

Week 4’s script gave us a BONKERS game from Christian McCaffrey, who blessed fantasy managers with 45.2 fantasy points in half-PPR scoring. Other notable performances came from Josh Allen (36.5 fantasy points), AJ Brown (34), David Montgomery (33.1), Stefon Diggs (33), Nico Collins (32.3), and Anthony Richardson (29.6). Lastly, Justin Fields finished as the QB3 with his ARM, passing for 335 yards and four touchdowns. Let’s hope the 24-year-old can build on Week 4’s monster performance against the Washington Commanders this week.

Bye Week Blues

The following teams and their fantasy studs have bye weeks this week:

Cleveland Browns

Deshaun Watson, Jerome Ford, Amari Cooper, Elijah Moore, David Njoku

Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Joshua Kelley, Keenan Allen, Gerald Everett

Seattle Seahawks

Geno Smith, Kenneth Walker, DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baker Mayfield, Rachaad White, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin

Players to Monitor Throughout the Week

  1. Tee Higgins: Higgins fractured his rib during the first half of Sunday’s game against the Titans and could not return. It “could keep him off the field for a bit.” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
  2. Javonte Williams – Williams suffered a hip flexor during Sunday’s win against the Chicago Bears, but “is not expected to miss much, if any time,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
  3. Jonathan Taylor: Taylor will resume practicing with the team Wednesday, according to Colts head coach Shane Steichen, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
  4. Kenny Pickett: Pickett suffered a knee contusion during Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans. He’s scheduled to practice in some capacity Wednesday, and the Steelers will wait and see how the 25-year-old feels before deciding on his status for Week 5’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
  5. Cooper Kupp: Kupp will resume practicing this week, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
  6. Other players dealing with injuries: Matthew Stafford (hip), Kyren Williams (hip), Jahan Dotson (ankle), Tyler Higbee (thumb), Luke Musgrave (concussion), and Curtis Samuel (quad).
