It’s another week of fantasy football, and we sadly have more confirmed cases of COVID-19. As of Wednesday morning, CB Stephon Gilmore of the New England Patriots tested positive, as did two more Tennessee Titans. These rankings will reflect the week 5 NFL games as if all contests are happening. However, it is realistic that the Chiefs (New England’s week 4 opponent), and the Bills (Tennessee’s Week 5 opponent) may be affected. As of right now, the Bills/Titans game is set to be played on Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST, and the Patriots/Broncos game is set to be played Monday at 5 p.m. This is all subject to change. We must monitor this daily and see what new tests transpire over the week. Here’s the Week 5 rankings for fantasy football:
