What You Need to Know From Week 5

A run down of the most important things to know from each game in Week 5


  1. Ronald Jones II isn’t going away when Leonard Fournette is healthy. He’s getting yards after contact and making something out of nothing. He also hasn’t been ostracized from the passing game after his spate of drops in Week 4.
  2. David Montgomery was never going to find a lot of room to run against the Bucs run defense (who lost key piece Vita Vea for the season), but his strong receiving skills and an actual goal line score made him a solid play and he’s a trustworthy RB2 in PPR with Tarik Cohen sidelined.
  3. Ke’Shawn Vaughn isn’t ready for prime time and is no threat to this backfield’s stability after all.
  4. Nick Foles is going to force the ball to Allen Robinson and keep his PPR floor high.
  5. Jimmy Graham can still make special plays on the ball and Nick Foles will keep giving him chances to, which makes him a low TE1 in the usual rough terrain at the position.
  6. Darnell Mooney has the speed to separate deep, the Bears just need to give Foles time to throw deep. He shouldn’t be on any dynasty waiver wires, and Anthony Miller isn’t going to become a thing because of it.
  7. Mike Evans’ ankle isn’t fully healthy, but hopefully the extra rest before the showdown with the Packers changes that. We haven’t seen his best yet this year.
  8. No Tampa tight end is going to be consistently fantasy relevant this year. Even with the wide receivers depleted, three tight ends were involved and none stood out.
  9. The Bears are still a top half of the league defense and no easy draw for Tom Brady with his top four wideouts either out or less than 100%.
  10. Tyler Johnson fits in on an NFL field and should become that ubiquitous slot receiver for Brady in time, which affects Chris Godwin’s long-term outlook.
