You knew George Kittle and Ed Dickson were about to pop Sunday, right? Well, even if they aren't ready to deliver big numbers for our fantasy teams the rest of the way, their brief(?) emergences revealed some trends that we can use going forward. Week 5 also gave us a rebound from Melvin Gordon, a renewed commitment to a certain Ravens RB and a new guy to either love or worry about in the Green Bay backfield ... depending on who else we own. Then there was Deshaun Watson -- is he ever coming back to earth? -- Odell Beckham's injury and a smattering of other big stories. Let's sort it all out before we move on to Week 6.

Check out our Week 6 Free Agent Focus and the Rest of the Way rankings for movers and waiver targets.
