With Week 4 of the 2020 fantasy football season in the books and Week 5 right around the corner, you might be looking at your roster like in need of an RB like:

Or maybe you're just browsing for new RB prospects? Regardless, with high player turnover due to injury and players missing games due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is prudent to be prepped for the 2020 season's inevitable twists and turns.

Below are my 3 RB waiver pick-ups for Week 5 of the 2020 Fantasy Football Season. They were selected as players that are possible short term value for your roster, but if they can prove themselves, could carve out a starting role or high touches/game. I've personally picked them all up off the waivers in my 12 man .5 PPR league and have them on the bench to see how they perform this week. Here they are:
