Fantasy Football: Week 5 Player Rankings

After a much-needed a breakout Week 4 performance against the defensively challenged, Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers looks to dismantle the Colts’ secondary this Sunday and sits atop the Cosby Sweaters Week 5 QB Rankings.

Matt Ryan continues his impressive MVP-caliber start and remains in the Top 5 while his teammate, Roddy White, grabs the top WR spot after a 169-yard 2 touchdown effort last Sunday.  Reliable veteran Wes Welker re-enters the Top 10 after two weeks of uncertainty in the Patriots’ offense and Miami wideout Brian Hartline makes the biggest jump from Week 4, shooting up to No. 21.
