Fantasy Football: Week 5 Quarterback Rankings

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE


So, they meet again.

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady headline the quarterback matchups for Week 5 of the NFL season. The two future first ballot hall of famers will square up for the 13th time in their careers. And, needless to say, both need to be in your starting lineups for your Fantasy Football team.

However, they aren’t the only ones.

Week 5 is upon us and whether you are 4-0 or 0-4, you want to win every week.

So, without further ado, here are my quarterback rankings for this week’s action. Remember, players active on Thursday night will not be featured in these rankings.
