Fantasy Football Week 5 RB Streamers
Chuba Hubbard Fantasy Outlook (18%)
With Miles Sanders nursing a groin injury, Chuba Hubbard racked up more carries, snaps and routes than the veteran in Week 4 against the Vikings. Hubbard has been quietly having an efficient year as well, averaging around 4.5 yards per carry.
Chuba Hubbard doesn’t have a ton of standalone value, but he’s a worthy add if Sanders’ groin injury lingers or forces the veteran to miss time.
Latavius Murray Fantasy Outlook (5%)
Latavius Murray had been benefiting as the goal line back for the Bills in Weeks 2 and 3, scoring a touchdown in each game. But Week 4 was a different story, where the Bills opted to give James Cook a crack at finishing drives by the end zone. Nonetheless, Murray should remain the goal-line option for an elite Buffalo offense, as one week isn’t an indicator of his role changing entirely moving forward.
If you’re in desperate need of a Flex play in Week 5, Murray isn’t a bad fantasy football Week 5 RB streamers option.
Samaje Perine Fantasy Outlook (54.8%)
At the time of writing, Javonte Williams’ injury isn’t thought to be serious. That being said, if Williams is limited in any capacity (or even misses time) and you missed out on Jaleel McLaughlin, then Perine is another desperation FLEX add for needy rosters.
The Broncos’ offense has proven to be serviceable, and they’ll welcome a Jets team to Mile High that has been middle of the pack in run defense and just allowed Isiah Pacheco to run for 115 yards and a touchdown. If Williams sits out Week 5, a positive game script and decent matchup could set up Perine for sneaky viability.
