RB Rankings Week 5 (updated Saturday)

Welcome to the Week 5 Running Back Rankings!

The committee backfields are getting numerous and the three back committees are springing up way too often.  It makes the bell-cow backs stand out way above the rest.  This week, the Chargers join the RBBC ranks and maybe it won’t last long.  We’ll see.

Alvin Kamara and Christian McCaffrey have tough matchups this week and I have them ranked lower than most outlets, I would think.  Don’t fret.  They are still great seasonal plays, but I like Dalvin, Zeke, DJ and Chubb more this week.

Some running backs I have my eye on for Week 5 DFS:

  • Dalvin Cook
  • Zeke Elliott
  • David Johnson
  • Joe Mixon
  • Jaylen Samuels

As always, these are my early rankings.  I will update all of the rankings on Saturday, so check back.

I’ll be back in a bit with the tight ends.

Bye teams:  Lions & Dolphins
