Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Week 5 (Video)
Justin Fensterman reacts to Week 5 in the NFL and gives you players whose stocks are on the rise or fall based on their performances.
Week 5 of the fantasy football season will always be remembered as the week Chase Claypool broke out and scored 4 touchdowns for the Steelers while Diontae Johnson hurt his Back early and left the game and JuJu Smith-Schuster owners were left in tears because of lack of production. Pittsburgh GM Kevin Colbert specifically told the Fantasy Alarm show on SiriusXM just how impressed and excited the Steelers were to draft Claypool months before the season began. Meanwhile in Philadelphia, Travis Fulgham hit the scene catching 10 passes and scoring a touchdown leaving Eagles and fantasy fans questioning why Zach Ertz isn't producing more considering the injuries they have suffered from? Week 5 did have its injury blows as Dak Prescott had Ankle surgery last night ending his season and Dalvin Cook hurt his Groin. With all of the schedule shifting, this year in particular (as you should every year), you must keep track of that news cycle to protect your team everyday. No excuses!
