2017-18 NFL Week 5 Position Rankings

A few things to consider: 1. My obvious sleeper of the week is Stefon Diggs. Clearly I think that the Vikings are going to kill the Bears unless Trubisky comes out swinging. I like their Defense, Diggs, and Thielen in a FLEX spot. 2. If you’re looking for a high-scoring game to watch this weekend, look no further than Seahawks vs Rams on Sunday at 1:25. Gurley will have a good game, Russell Wilson will shine, and ultimately, the Seahawks will come out on top after their rebirth Sunday Night vs the Colts. 3. Jameis Winston vs the Pats defense on Thursday is going to be a shootout. Every QB to face New England through the first four weeks of the season has gone over 300 yards passing, and I expect Winston to continue that trend. I think I smell an upset on the horizon… With all that said, here are my position rankings for Week 5 of the 2017-18 NFL Season.

Note – These Rankings are accurate as of Rob Gronkowski’s injury and announcement that he is out Thursday 10/5
