We’re back again with our “So-Called Fantasy Experts” Week 5 Fantasy Football rankings!

We just came out of our first week of byes, and we’ll be getting the Patriots and Titans back for Week 5 action. A rested and rejuvenated Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski!?! Look out, Cowboys.

Week 4 also saw another handful of high-scoring games, and we can only assume that’s going to continue in the coming weeks, even though the fellas in Las Vegas seem to disagree. They have no over/unders eclipsing 50 points again, for the third week in a row, and they only show three games with over/unders higher than 45.

Remember that there are four teams on byes this week: Carolina, Miami, Minnesota and the N.Y. Jets. So you won’t get to use the likes of Cam Newton, Ryan Tannehill, Teddy Bridgewater, Adrian Peterson, Chris Ivory, Lamar Miller, Jonathan Stewart, Jarvis Landry, Mike Wallace, Brandon Marshall, Greg Olsen, Jordan Cameron, Kyle Rudolph, and the solid defenses of the Panthers, Jets, Vikings and Dolphins.

And finally, don’t forget that TE Antonio Gates is back in action against the Steelers Monday night! The four-week suspension is over!

SCFE Staff Week 5 Fantasy Football Rankings

These Week 5 Fantasy Football rankings are produced through FantasyPros.com, so player cards are also provided for each player, in case you want to look up the latest news and stats on any particular player.

Finally, I’d also like to point you to their “My Playbook” application that allows users to load up rosters from all of their leagues, then it help you figure out who to start, who to sit, who to think about trading, which free agents you should think about picking up and which players you should consider dropping. It’s one of the best all-in-one Fantasy tools I’ve ever seen.

Don’t forget about the four teams on byes – Panthers, Dolphins, Vikings and Jets!

Use the “So-Called Fantasy Experts” Staff Week 5 Fantasy Football rankings to help build your lineup!
