Week 5 Fantasy Football Flex Rankings for standard, superflex, 2-QB leagues

Now that we have a full month of games behind us, let’s take a look at the data and how QBs are stacking up against position players in fantasy football. In standard leagues, 17 of the top 18 players in total points scored are quarterbacks, with Derrick Henry representing the running backs at No. 10. In PPR leagues, 12 of the top 18 players are quarterbacks, with Derrick Henry and  Austin Ekeler joined by four wide receivers inside the top 18. So, again, the quarterbacks reign supreme at the top. And let’s face it, you’re not deciding between Tyreek Hill and Tom Brady at a superflex spot, so where this really matters is closer toward the bottom, where almost all quarterbacks generally still perform position players. So, as always, our Week 5 fantasy two-QB/superflex rankings will feature QBs early and often. (We also have standard flex rankings for those who haven’t taken the two-QB plunge.)

If you need more convincing at the middle part of rankings, Carson Wentz is outscoring Corey Davis, Mac Jones is outscoring Tyler Boyd, and Ben Roethlisberger is outscoring Clyde Edward-Helaire. Put simply, start a QB in your superflex spots unless there are significant extenuating circumstances.

WEEK 5 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Note: As we move down the list in the standard flex rankings, we opt to rank players with higher upside more favorably than players with safe floors. After all, chasing upside is the right move when deciding between players at deep flex spots.

WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker
