On the Hunt for Value!

As I was putting together my rankings for the week, I noticed a skyrocket to the top for one Kareem Hunt. With Nick Chubb sidelined for at least three weeks, Hunt is a lock for my top-10 each and every week. The 2017 rushing leader is going to see his already healthy workload sizably beef up. While he won’t be the lone back with D’Ernest Johnson factoring in, he’ll get the majority of work. Hunt was already the RB12 heading into the week, but his noticeable jump to the RB6 is a good sign of things to come.

Looking elsewhere, I’ve got Robby Anderson a couple of spots higher than D.J. Moore. Look, it pains me greatly to have things mapped out like this, but enough is enough. Anderson is only in front of Moore by two targets, but their production differs significantly. Moore trails Anderson by just under 100 yards, and on top of not having found the endzone yet, Moore has come down with 10 fewer receptions than his teammate. They both have a great matchup in Week 5, but for now, Anderson gets the slight edge.

As always, if you have any questions about my rankings, please feel free to leave me a comment. I’m always happy to engage with my readers. And if you’re in need of other fantastic Week 5 material, check out the rest of my team’s work here!
