Week 5 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings

BY foxsports • October 5, 2016

The FOX Sports fantasy football department will publish weekly fantasy football rankings for Week 5 and beyond every Wednesday afternoon and Saturday night around midnight (EST) during the NFL season. Our weekly rankings are based on that week's matchup and not a rest-of-the-season ranking. Links for each positional weekly ranking can be found below or you can visit the FOX Sports fantasy homepage for more news and analysis

Note: In cases of wait-and-see Week 5 injury news, each contributor may have different opinions on whether or not that player will be active, which will be evident in their ranking below.
