In Week 5 of fantasy football, there are plenty of exploitable matchups. It’s all about finding the right guy against the right team.
It’s Week 5 of the NFL and fantasy football season. If you’re down on your team already, just remember there’s plenty of football left.
If you have any of these players this week, you’ll be in for a great week of football. Let’s take a look at five solid matchups this week.
Best fantasy football matchups for Week 5
5. Nick Chubb & Kareem Hunt, RBs, Cleveland Browns (vs. LAC)
The Browns have tried to piece together this offense with Jacoby Brissett until Deshaun Watson returns, and that has led to a 2-2 start and somehow sitting at the top of the AFC North. One big reason for that is the run game led by Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. They’ve led the Browns to the second most rushing yards as a team through four weeks.
This week, the Browns have a matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to running backs so far this season. Though Chubb always remains the better play, Hunt will get enough work and production here to allow them to both finish as an RB1 and RB2, respectively.
