Tom Brady is back from bye and in the top spot among his peers for Week 5
With four teams (Carolina, Miami, Minnesota, New York Jets) on a bye this week, some starting quarterbacks are not going to be available for fantasy owners. While the options are getting slimmer (thanks to all of the injuries to quarterbacks in the league), the rankings are here to help.
It should be no surprise that Tom Brady returns to the top of the rankings following his bye week. Russell Wilson drops out of the top 10 this week, as Cincinnati's defense is tough, and a West Coast team traveling east on a short week is always difficult. Wilson has five touchdowns in four weeks, and could struggle this week.
