Week 5 fantasy football cheat sheet

(Each week, the PFF Fantasy cheat sheet will have all the relevant fantasy football content for the week in one place for you to keep track and review as needed as you prepare for that week in fantasy.)

Just a reassurance here: Your season isn’t over. You could be 0-4, but it isn’t over. Three years ago, I started 0-4 (and whined, but if you read my stuff that can’t possibly surprise you) and had more injuries than I had roster slots. I had a random come-from-behind Week 5 to get to 1-4, kept trading, kept trying, and kept winning. I never lost another regular-season game, went into the playoffs at 9-4 and incredibly the No. 1 seed.

Then I lost in my first playoff game. It wasn’t perfect. But it is true that 0-4, while a rough start and certainly not what you want, is not a season-ender. Keep plugging.

On to the Week 5 advice.
