Fantasy Football Week 5 Rankings: Top 12 Players at Each Skill Position

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: The NFL is one crazy league.

Brian Hartline leads all receivers through four weeks with 455 yards, and unless your name is Biff Tannen, you didn’t see that coming. Nor did you know the Saints would be 0-4. The Browns are 0-4 too, but you didn’t need a crystal ball to predict that one.

Fantasy football is just as crazy as the real thing, and by now, you’ve realized projections mean next to nothing. Trust your instincts and don’t be afraid to plug in a sleeper here or there.

Still, there are some players you can’t afford to bench, especially when they are faced with favorable matchups.

Make your own decisions, but be informed. Study the rankings and matchups and make smart decisions. Because let’s face it, no one likes to lose to a guy who gets by on dumb luck. And yes, I’m speaking from experience. Thanks, Tony.

The following are my Week 5 rankings for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends. If any of these guys are on your roster, find a way to get them in your lineup.

*St. Louis and Arizona players have been excluded from Week 5 rankings.
