Week 5 Fantasy QB Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts at quarterback

  Week 5 Fantasy QB Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts at quarterback Our Week 5 fantasy QB rankings are absolutely stacked despite missing Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford because of byes and Cam Newton because of COVID-19. From the studs at the top to the sleepers with favorable matchups, we break them all down.This tell us two things: There are a lot of bad defenses this year, and there's no excuse for starting a shaky QB this week. Carson Wentz (@ Steelers) and Tom Brady (@ 49ers) are about the only "starting" QBs with bad matchups on paper, and while very few Wentz owners will need to be talked out of sitting him, Brady owners likely will want to ride with the GOAT after his five-TD game.

Sterling Shepard has only been in action for the Giants in two games this year. After suffering a toe injury in the team's Week 2 game against the Bears, he was placed on IR and has remained there since. Now at the midpoint of the fantasy football season, he may get a chance to suit up again in a Week 7 contest against the Eagles. Shepard hasn't officially been activated from the IR yet, but he's still thought to be "questionable" for Thursday Night Football, and his owners -- or owners looking to scoop him off the waiver wire -- will be eagerly awaiting updates on his status and they make their first start 'em, sit 'em calls of the week.

WEEK 7 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start 'em, sit 'em

Is Sterling Shepard playing Thursday night?

Shepard hasn't played since suffering a toe injury in Week 2, but it did look like he was developing a strong rapport with Daniel Jones before the injury took place. Shepard saw 10 targets on 68 snaps before being hurt, and even though Golden Tate was inactive in Week 1 when Shepard had six targets, it seems likely Shepard will be a preferred option over Tate once he does return.

Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins

  Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins The Eagles have by far the toughest remaining schedule among their NFC East counterparts, so winning the division won't be easy.Still, the Eagles are just one half-game behind Dallas (2-3) with 11 games left. The Cowboys, meanwhile, just lost star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season after he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle.

However, it's still unclear when that will be. According to ESPN's Jordan Raanan, Giants head coach Joe Judge said that Shepard's Week 7 status could "come down to a pre-game workout." It is a good sign that Shepard was designated to return from IR this week, but the Giants could still hypothetically activate him and let him sit out one more week as opposed to putting him in against the Eagles. They also could just leave him on IR until after Thursday night's game and then activate him before Week 8.

If Shepard does play against the Eagles, he will be an intriguing flex play given that the Eagles' back seven isn't very strong. Shepard could continue to be a volume receiver for a Giants offense that isn't very good but will have to throw a good deal most weeks to try to stay in games.

Shepard's presence wouldn't necessarily represent a downgrade for Darius Slayton, the Giants' No. 1 receiver, as he would still be Jones' preferred outside receiver and top TD target, but it could be a downgrade for Tate and TE Evan Engram. Both Tate and Engram have been disappointments, and Shepard may be asked to work the middle of the field a bit more at their expense. That would be especially bad news for Engram's productivity, so that will be something to watch.

If Shepard is declared active, he should have a chance to be a top-50 WR. That said, if you're worried about Shepard's workload, you can feel free to sit him one more week to see what he looks like, especially if you're in a league that starts just two WRs and a flex.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 9: Streaming targets, free agent sleepers include Derek Carr, DeeJay Dallas, Allen Lazard .
Now's the time for owners to stay ahead on the fantasy football waiver wire and scout potential free agent pickups. Ahead of Weeks 7 and 8, it could be smart to add guys like Derek Carr, DeeJay Dallas, and Allen Lazard as bye-week fill-ins or lotto-ticket stashes.Of course, the process of doing this isn't exact. You could pick up a player intent on starting them in Week 9 only to see them get hurt in Week 8. They may even getting traded or have a game postponed. But as long as you have one revolving door roster spot or a player that you have no intention of playing this week, you can look ahead and add a potential starter for next week.
