Fantasy Football 2020 Week 5 QB Rankings

Last Updated: October 11

Week 5 QB Rankings Breakdown

Likely In: Lamar Jackson (knee), Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), Kyle Allen

Likely Out: Dwayne Haskins

Out: Sam Darnold (shoulder)

SCHEDULE UPDATE: NE/DEN has been taken off of Week 5 and moved to Week 6. Get all Patriots and Broncos out of your lineup. TEN/BUF has been moved to Tuesday night but a positive test occurred Sunday morning for the Titans. Without official word, treat that game as it is in doubt and switch to equal or even lesser options if you’re deciding between Bills and Titans players. They’ve been devalued in the rankings because of this.
