A look at some key fantasy questions for Week 5: CAN YOU START SAINTS RB MARK INGRAM IN HIS FIRST GAME BACK FROM SUSPENSION? There's no substitution for real-life game action and Ingram isn't likely to be in midseason form for a couple of weeks, but it's not like he will be asked for 20-plus carries this week. He'll still be sharing some carries with Alvin Kamara as he gets back into game shape. In his last game against Washington last November, Ingram rushed for 134 yards, scored a TD and added three receptions for 21 yards. Ingram does have a favorable matchup as Washington has yielded 4.5 yards per carry (YPC). You've compensated without him for four games. If you've got a good alternative option at RB for Week 5 and prefer to sit back and evaluate how he's used, do so. If your team is stacked at RB, this may also be a good opportunity to gain full value for him in a trade. If you lack depth at RB, you drafted him so that you can start him in Week 5.

Week 5 fantasy football rankings
There are just two weekends left before the NFL starts the regular season. Thousands of fantasy football leagues will be drafting soon. Through Saturday I’ll share my rankings for each position. I started with quarterbacks Tuesday, followed by running backs Wednesday. Wide receivers are up next with tight ends and defenses to follow. This year I’ve added tiers to better help you prepare for your draft.RELATED: Fantasy football rankings: Top 250. Wide receivers Tier 1 Not a lot to say here. Antonio Brown is at the top of his game and was just a single touchdown shy of scoring at least 10 for four straight years last season. He’s on a streak of five years in a row of gaining more than 1,200 yards. You should draft a consistent, high-scoring, can’t-miss player in the top five and Brown can be that player. Drafting him is like taking a stud running back.1. Antonio Brown, PIT Tier 2 With DeShaun Watson returning from injury, the sky is the limit for DeAndre … [Read more...] about Fantasy football position rankings: Wide receivers

By Ryan Kartje | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: August 18, 2018 at 12:30 pm | UPDATED: August 18, 2018 at 12:58 pm Fantasy football season is fast approaching. Your draft is right around the corner. But we’ve got you covered. Here are our rankings of the top 100 players. Happy drafting! 1. Todd Gurley, RB1, Rams 2. Le’Veon Bell, RB2, Steelers The consensus top two backs in fantasy football are basically interchangeable. Both are going to get a ton of touches. Both are incredibly versatile. Gurley may not be able to reproduce his 19 touchdowns from a year ago, but Sean McVay’s promise that he can do even more as a receiver is enough to convince me he’s the top option. Bell, however, is a fantastic consolation prize. 3. Ezekiel Elliott, RB3, Cowboys 4. David Johnson, RB4, Cardinals 5. Antonio Brown, WR1, Steelers 6. Alvin Kamara, RB5, Saints 7. Saquon Barkley, RB6, Giants Barkley is just a rookie, but in new Giants coach Pat … [Read more...] about Fantasy football rankings: Top 100 players
