Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray spherical out my Prime 5 choices for Week 5. Deshaun Watson, Drew Brees, Dak Prescott, Tom Brady and Jared Goff land in my Prime 10.

I additionally would contemplate beginning Justin Herbert, Teddy Bridgewater and Joe Burrow this week if you’re determined on the place.

Proceed to watch the standing for Kansas Metropolis Chiefs, New England Patriots, Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Payments, Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders gamers in your lineups, as their video games could possibly be postponed as a consequence of current constructive COVID-19 check outcomes.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and Inexperienced Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers ought to be taken out of lineups as their groups have Week 5 byes.

Try my weekly waiver wire article for choices of gamers so as to add at every place.

Listed below are a few of my favourite gamers on this week’s high 20 quarterback rankings:


Buffalo Payments quarterback Josh Allen has been a Prime 5 fantasy soccer possibility to date this season. I count on his spectacular performances to proceed in Week 5 when the Payments face a Tennessee Titans protection that was simply torched by Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Allen is my No. 1 quarterback this week. I count on at the least two passing touchdowns and a speeding rating from the Payments quarterback in Week 5.

Deshaun Watson has had a disappointing fantasy soccer marketing campaign to date in 2020, however he ought to have a good Sunday when the Houston Texans battle the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars have allowed two passing touchdowns per recreation this season.

Watson has thrown a number of landing passes in back-to-back video games coming into this Week 5 contest. He’s my No. 6 quarterback.


Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff lands at No. 10 in my Week 5 quarterback rankings. Goff threw only one landing cross final week, however I count on him to throw at the least two scores this week in opposition to a Washington Soccer Staff protection that has allowed the 11th-most fantasy factors per recreation to quarterbacks.

Goff ought to be a starter in all leagues which have at the least 12 groups.

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is off to a scorching begin in his rookie marketing campaign. Herbert has thrown for 931 yards and 5 scores and rushed for an additional landing by way of three weeks.

I count on the rookie to enhance on these numbers in Week 5, when the Chargers battle a New Orleans Saints protection that’s tied for permitting the third-most passing scores this season (11).

Begin Herbert as a bye-week fill-in or a matchup streamer in case your regular starter has a bye or a nasty matchup in Week 5.


Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had his greatest recreation of the season in Week 4. He accomplished 70.Three % of his throws for 276 yards and two scores in Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals.

He ought to submit nice numbers once more in Week 5, when the Panthers face an Atlanta Falcons protection that has allowed probably the most fantasy factors per recreation to quarterbacks.

The Falcons have additionally allowed a league-high 13 passing scores by way of 4 weeks. I count on Bridgewater to cross for at the least 300 yards and two scores on this battle between NFC South squads.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie Joe Burrow is my No. 16 possibility for Week 5. Burrow has thrown for at the least 300 yards in every of his final three video games. He additionally has six passing scores and a speeding landing this season.

He ought to submit one other starter-worthy efficiency in Week 5, when the Bengals face the San Francisco 49ers. I count on the Bengals to wrestle on the bottom in opposition to the 49ers, which ought to drive Burrow to throw.

He’s value a begin in the event you want a bye-week fill-in, however I’d look elsewhere in the event you simply want a streamer at quarterback.
