FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 5 FLEX RANKINGS
Football season is in full swing! Coming off one of the strangest campaigns ever, the 2021 season welcomes in a 17th regular-season game for the first time ever—forcing fantasy football leagues to adjust their schedules in the process.
There's nothing quite like the first few weeks of the season. Almost everyone in the NFL has hope and most everyone in the fantasy football world still has expectations for a championship trophy come the turn of the new year. While we have a better idea of what to expect now, there still will be plenty of surprises, new breakout stars, injuries, high draft picks underperforming, etc. in the weeks to come. We can do all the research we want, but accurately predicting the future remains elusive.
As always, good luck this week! I hope everyone reading this adds to their win column.
All of these rankings reflect the order in which I would start a player in half-point PPR leagues with otherwise default scoring (only slight adjustments are needed in full-point PPR). These rankings will be updated throughout the week, so be sure to check back in on this page and hit the refresh button to get the most up-to-date rankings in order to gain an edge on your leaguemates. Be sure to also check in on the Fantasy tab on our homepage for advice on players you can drop, waiver-wire pickups, sneaky starts, DFS advice, and much more each and every week.
If you have any specific questions or want to know more about what I think of certain players this week, follow me on Twitter (@JaimeEisner) or Instagram (@JaimeEisnerTDN). I’d be happy to chat with you!
