Fantasy RB PPR Rankings Week 5: Who to start with, sit in the corridor in fantasy football

Let’s take a minute to appreciate the fact that our week 5 RB PPR fantasy rankings are not affected by the bye weeks. It will be the last time that is the case until December. We know injuries are going to be a constant threat to our decisions to start and sit (see David Montgomery), but not having to deal with the scheduled PTO creates more sleepers and must start.

Of course, it also creates more potential failures. That is somewhat mitigated in the PPR leagues, as some of the guys with the toughest matchups are at least a little better served to provide points in the air. This week, that includes border starters Clyde Edwards-Helaire (vs. Bills) and Miles Sanders / Kenny Gainwell (@ Panthers). In reality, Gainwell might be worth more than Sanders at PPR right now. The most troubling running backs with bad matchups are the Broncos duo of Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon (@ Steelers). Both are still potentially up for grabs, but Gordon takes a slight hit at PPR to get into the flex range.

The favorable matchups generate a lot of PPR sleepers this week, as some classic receiving backs are in good places, at least based on RB’s early-season defensive stats. Chase Edmonds (vs. 49ers), Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis (vs. Jets in London), Nyheim Hines (@ Ravens), Kareem Hunt (vs. Chargers) and Devin Singletary (@ Chiefs) all look like decent push-ups in PPR. Even Giovani Bernard (vs. Dolphins), if he is active, has some advantage, but it is better to leave him in the banks at least one more week.

JD McKissic (vs. Saints) seems to be back to his usual way of catching passes after a slow start, so he can still be considered a flex this week. Damien Williams (@ Raiders) and Chuba Hubbard (vs. Eagles) should see the work of all attempts with injuries to David Montgomery (knee) and Christian McCaffrey (hamstring), but they have even more juice in PPR formats .

Myles Gaskin (@ Bucs) was always seen with a high floor in PPR, but after last week, he can’t be trusted, especially against the Bucs’ best career defense. David Johnson (against Patriots) is on that boat, too.

Running is as smooth as possible right now, but things are about to get a lot more turbulent. As we said before, things are always a little easier in PPR, but not by much. Stock up on depth and handcuffs now. You are going to need it.

Qualification: We will update these RB PPR rankings as needed throughout the week, so please check the latest player movement.
