Fantasy Football: Week 5 Waiver Wire Rankings

Our experts share their rankings for the most popular week 5 waiver wire pickups.

Below are our experts’ consensus week 5 waiver wire rankings. Use these waiver wire rankings to not only determine what players to target this week, but to determine the order in which you should be targeting the players.

If Latavius Murray, Alvin Kamara, or Devin Funchess are still available in your league, they are must adds, in that order. All three have been mainstays in our waiver wire articles, are their team’s new number one, and should be solid volume plays moving forward.

Moving through the list, you see some fairly predictable names: the original big three backs in Seattle should be back on your radar with Carson out with injury. Any of the three could step up to take over that lead role.

Gallman and Engram are both young players that could be playmakers for a Giants offense that desperately needs to find some other than just OBJ. Will Fuller made this list two weeks ago, and you immediately saw why this week. He will get all sorts of targets and favorable coverage playing opposite Hopkins.

Alex Collins and Andre Ellington are two other guys that we have been high on lately. Both guys are the most talented, most productive backs on their team’s roster and should slowly take over their committee.

Keep an eye on not only Mitchell Trubisky in week 5, but his receivers. The Bears paid Markus Wheaton for a reason… look for Trubisky to establish a connection with the speedy Wheaton, who could be a number one receiver moving forward this season.
