With Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season now complete, it’s again that time to look at the players who excelled in fantasy despite mainly being unowned.

In order to be eligible, the player must be owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. One quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted each week.

1

QB - Jameis Winston, Saints (24.0%) - 279 passing yards, 4 passing touchdowns, 1 interception, 26 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost

Winston threw at least four touchdowns (threw five in Week 1). This year, New Orleans hasn’t been a high-octane pass offense as Winston averaged about 153 passing yards in his first four contests.

2

RB - Devontae Booker, Giants (3.8%) - 42 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 3 receptions, 16 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

With Saquon Barkley leaving Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, Booker carried the ball 16 times in Week 5 after just receiving seven in the team’s first four games. According to ESPN, Barkley is expected to miss a “couple weeks,” which will make Booker one of the more popular waiver pickups.
