Use these player salaries as context for building your Week 5 OwnersBox lineups. There is some great value at the running back position. It’s difficult to predict a players performance in a single week. But some players have great matchups in Week 5 or have risen on their respective depth charts with more opportunity.
- Damien Harris should be an RB1 this week, the Patriots are 1-3 and I expect them to dominate the line of scrimmage against the Texans.
- Derrick Henry is bound for another 2000+ yard rushing season, he is the consensus RB1 until the return of Christian McCaffrey.
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire has eclipsed 100 rushing yards in the last 2 weeks, but the Bills are stout against the run and Edwards-Helaire hasn’t been involved in the passing game as much as we’d hoped.
