Ezekiel Elliott Headlines Fantasy Football Week 5 Flex Rankings

Getty Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys

Welcome to our fantasy football big board for Week 5 of the 2019 NFL season. These player rankings are based on full-PPR (point per reception) scoring formats. Our rankings will change throughout the week based on injuries and other noteworthy news that warrants a player rising or dropping in the ranks.

Within our big board you will find standard flex-eligible positions, i.e. running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. If you’re in a super flex league that allows multiple quarterbacks in your starting lineup, head over to our Fantasy Football Week 5 QB rankings to better help you with your lineup decisions.

Without further ado, we present you with the Week 5 fantasy football rankings, along with how to handle one former superstar running back in Los Angeles.

What to Make of Todd Gurley

At this point a season ago, Gurley would have likely topped our top 100 big board. However, a lingering knee issue, along with usage questions, have caused the Rams running back’s fantasy stock to plummet over the past few months.

Gurley masked his measly five touches for 18 yards on the ground a week ago with two touchdowns and seven receptions.

The positive from last week’s performance is that Gurley got both goal line touches, and looks in the passing game, both of which had come few and far between for the RB prior to Week 4.

On the surface, this week’s matchup seems like a tough one for Seattle. However, over Seattle’s last two games they’ve allowed an average of 8.5 receptions to teams’ starting running backs.

Gurley may be more of a RB3/Flex start for the remainder of the season, but he’ll likely be in the mid-to-low end RB2 range in Week 5.
