Fantasy Overview, Week 5 - Footballguys

Get yourself caught up on what's going on in the league as we enter Week 5 of the NFL season. Here's my take on the fantasy landscape around the league and how you can benefit. 

It's hard to believe, but we are a quarter of the way through the season. In fantasy terms we're even further, considering most league's playoffs start in Week 14. For those of you with a 4-0 record, Congratulations! All the power to you.

This week's edition is more for those that are 0-4, 1-3 or 2-2. I'll take a look at some struggling players from each position and let you know what you how you should proceed with those players. These do not include any players who have missed multiple games with an injury.

QUARTERBACK

Aaron Rodgers, GB

Current rank:15th
Drafted as: QB1.
Opponents played: CHI (win), MIN (tie), at WAS (loss), BUF (win)
Record: 2-1-1
Upcoming schedule: at DET, SF, BYE, at LAR, at NE, vs MIA

Green Bay could conceivably be 1-2-1 if not for the comeback win in Week 1 vs Chicago, but this is about Aaron Rodgers and his place outside of the Top 10. How concerned should you be? Considering he was carted off in Week 1, taking the field is a bonus. Can we blame some of his slow start on the knee injury? Yes, but there's no proof that his knee has been the main culprit. He has come close, but he has not surpassed the 300-yard mark in any of his games this season, and he has two games with only one touchdown. His numbers so far - 1,130 yards, 7 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Last year at this time, Rodgers was ranked third with 1,146 yards and 10 touchdowns (3 interceptions). Both years he had zero rushing touchdowns through Week 4, and he actually has more rushing yards this year than last.

2017 fantasy points through Week 4 (99)
2018 fantasy points through Week 4(90)

99 fantasy points in 2018 would equal a ranking of 10th. He's not far off from a yardage standpoint of where he was last year. One big game and he's right back in the hunt.

Result: Keep the faith, Rodgers comeback is in the cards.
