We are back with our fantasy football week 5 rankings. Below are our initial ratings for the week which will be updated up to game times. This is the first week NFL teams have byes, so be sure to adjust your rosters accordingly. Before you get to our rankings let’s check out some key injuries we are monitoring this week.
Jonathan Taylor – Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor is off the PUP and back at practice. Will he play in week 5? Right now it’s hard to say as we haven’t heard what the next step will be. Keep in mind that Taylor has stated before that he no longer wants to play for the Colts.
Saquon Barkley – Barkley has been out of action for the past two weeks due to an ankle sprain. There are some encouraging signs that he might play this week. He is back practicing and taking reps with the team. We should have more clarity on Thursday if he is leaning towards playing.
Javonte Williams – Williams picked up a hip flexor injury on Sunday which knocked him out of the game. The good news is he is not expected to miss much time. He is likely to be limited in practice this week and we will have more updates on Friday whether he is a go or not.
