QB rankings and streaming advice for Week 5 of the 2018 fantasy football season. This past Thursday Night Football game gave us two quarterbacks with 400-plus passing yards in a thrilling shoot out – though the real story was Mitchell Trubisky on Sunday, who flashed brilliance and justification for his second-overall-draft-selection with five touchdown passes in the first half and six total on the day. He made the Fitzmagic come to an end, Jameis Winston’s return seemingly meaningless, and forced head coach Dirk Koetter to want to “fire every person that was on the field.” Meanwhile, Josh Allen’s fantasy value came plummeting back to earth as Deshaun Watson and Andrew Luck seemed to shed the rust off, finishing QB6 and QB3 respectively on the day. As for my picks, Joe Flacco sustained his fantasy productivity with over 350 passing yards and two touchdowns, his best performance so far this season, and Andy Dalton made a significant bounceback in a close win in Atlanta, landing him in the top 10 (QB9) for the week. Baker Mayfield showed his rookie stripes with four turnovers against the Raiders, three of which turned into Raider touchdowns in a wild overtime loss. However, with just under 300 yards passing and two touchdowns, his potential as the Browns’ franchise quarterback remains.
