Fantasy Fox: Top 30 free agents for Week 5

BY foxsports • October 1, 2013

Here's my listing of the top 30 free agents (12-team, standard-scoring leagues) heading into Week 5 — a countdown that typically values long-term viability over one week of superb stats.

Obviously, free-agent quarterbacks like Geno Smith, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Tannehill and Terrelle Pryor are the likeliest candidates for most points from Sunday to Sunday.

But I would also place an equal or higher priority on landing possible dynamos at receiver, running back and tight end ... ahead of a quarterback who may only draw one start all season (a star QB's bye week).

1. WR Nate Washington, Titans
2. RB Danny Woodhead, Chargers
3. RB Johnathan Franklin, Packers
4. QB Terrelle Pryor, Raiders
5. WR Michael Floyd, Cardinals
6. WR Robert Woods, Bills
7. RB Roy Helu, Redskins
8. TE Charles Clay, Dolphins
9. QB Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins
10. RB Rashad Jennings, Raiders
11. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Titans
12. D/ST Carolina Panthers
13. WR Keenan Allen, Chargers
14. QB Geno Smith, Jets
15. QB Brian Hoyer, Browns
16. TE Jared Cook, Rams
17. WR Brandon Gibson, Dolphins
18. RB Chris Ogbonnaya, Browns
19. D/ST New Orleans Saints
20. WR Malcom Floyd, Chargers
21. PK Greg Zuerlein, Rams
22. PK Alex Henery, Eagles
23. RB Andre Ellington, Cardinals
24. WR Justin Hunter, Titans
25. WR Donnie Avery, Chiefs
26. RB LeGarrette Blount, Patriots
