The Fantasy Football Checkdown: Week 5 Advice and Rankings

Our first Fantasy Football Checkdown video in Week 4 was a success! Not because it was anything special to look at, but the fantasy football advice within the video was pretty good. Andy Dalton was the QB3 for the week, Big Ben was a bust, and no Raider had much success against the stingy Broncos defense.

But the NFL has always been a “what have you done for me lately” league. So gloating about the previous week won’t do me any good if I don’t continue producing. Here’s my sleeper plays and big-name busts at each major position for Week 5.

If you want complete QB, RB, WR, and TE rankings for Week 5, keep scrolling beyond the video.
