If you’re carrying both DeMarco Murray and Le’Veon Bell on your squads, you should be in pretty good shape with at least a 3-1 record, unless something went terribly awry at QB and/or WR over the season’s first four weeks. With Murray on pace for single-season rushing records, although we are only a quarter of the way through the season, and Bell proving he can handle a heavy workload, both landed the top two slots in our Week 5 running back rankings.

Following a dominating performance in Chicago, Aaron Rodgers wandered up to the No. 1 QB spot and despite a lackluster game in the Meadowlands, Calvin Johnson will rebound this week at home against Buffalo.
