Fantasy Football Week 5 Player Rankings at QB, RB, WR, TE, K, and D/ST

Jon is busy traveling this week, and I am busy creating pictures of the MNF broadcast team as a boy band, so it’s possible we won’t get rankings posted. (Actually, I’ve just been trying to stay caught up on the questions to the @FantasyMSF Twitter account and in the Week 5 Start/Sit comment section.)

However, that’s why we have a partnership with the folks over at Play This Guy, so that we can bring you consensus rankings even when we can’t bring you our own.

The rankings below are a compilation of numerous sites’ rankings from around the web. Links are included at the bottom of each list so you can pop on over to Play This Guy and see their complete rankings. And of course, you’re welcome to ask questions in the comment section. We’ll get to them as soon as we can.

Now here are your rankings:

    Bye week sure came quick. Oh!
    With Rice and R Williams on a bye, along with I'm so pissed I bought the feature back b.s. Reggie Bush, I'm down to DMC and Bernard Scott (Benson suspension status unknown). Should I drop Scott? Available are Jackie Battle, Delone Carter, Jacquizz, and CJ Spiller (waivers, I'm #2 and would prefer to keep it) any advice on these guys for this week or stashing them for the playoffs? Thanks!

    Someone dropped Daniel Thomas in my league. I have the #1 waiver pick as we use last person who picks goes to the end system. With Henne out for the year I assume MIA would go to the run for awhile? So is he worth using a #1 waiver pick for? I would drop Nate washington. I have Steve Smith / Julio Jones / Percy / Reggie Wayne / Nate Wash. My RB's are McCoy / Wells / MoJo / Ryan Mathews / Moreno. Should I drop Moreno instead? I just think Moreno will be useful in the second half of the season like last year. Thanks again…

    • Yes, Thomas worth using it on. I would drop Moreno for him simply because Thomas is the #1 back right now, Moreno isn't. And this is Moreno's third year…he is what he is at this point

  3. Helpful info. Fortunate me I found your site by accident, and I am shocked why this twist of fate did not took place in advance! I bookmarked it.
