Updated Week 5 Fantasy Football Rankings & Tiers (2021)

Q1 of the 2021 Fantasy Football Season is in the books. Get that W with our Week 5 Fantasy Rankings.

Updated 10/9: Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) & George Kittle (calf) DOUBTFUL; Julio Jones Giants WRs OUT;  Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon, Chase Edmonds, TJ Hockenson highlight important QUESTIONABLE to track Sunday.

The whistle has just blown on the first quarter of the 2021 Fantasy Football season. Perhaps you own Derrick Henry, who’s pounded your opponents raw, and you’re off to a 4-0 start. Maybe your WR1 AJ Brown has you at 0-4, kindly reintroducing you to your good old friend, The Darkness. 

Regardless of where you stand, you still have time to crush the 2021 fantasy football season. Many Waiver Wire Hail Mary’s have yet to be unearthed. Current busts could suddenly explode and rifle your team up the ladder. Dominant fast-starters could screech to sudden halts. Make sure that positive turnaround starts this week with The Wolf’s Week 5 Fantasy Football Rankings.
