Teddy Bridgewater, Chase Edmonds, and Gerald Everett were among the players who excelled despite not being rostered in most leagues.

Here’s a look at the Week 5 fantasy stars who were likely unowned. In order to be eligible to make an appearance, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. Each week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and a tight end will be highlighted.

1

Quarterback - Teddy Bridgewater, Saints (314 passing yards, 4 passing touchdowns, 1 interception, 7 rushing yards)

Sunday marked just the second time in Bridgewater’s 32 career starts in which he threw for four touchdown passes (also threw four on December 20, 2015). As a matter of fact, those are the only two games where he’s thrown for more than two.

2

Running back - Chase Edmonds, Cardinals (68 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 3 receptions, 18 receiving yards)

Edmonds has slowly seen his playing time increase as the year has gone on, and he received a season-high eight carries in Week 5. His 37-yard touchdown scamper midway through the fourth quarter gave the Cardinals a 14-point lead. He is included in Sports Illustrated’s Week 6 waiver wire pickups.
