Welcome to Week 5 of the fantasy football season!

It’s time to start thinking about setting your lineups, and we’re here to help with our initial fantasy player rankings! I’ve used a full-point PPR scoring system for these rankings, which you can use in coordination with the Week 5 edition of Start Em, Sit Em. At Sports Illustrated, we always have you covered!

Among the running backs, Alvin Kamara has moved into the top 12 after a 13-catch game against the Buccaneers. Zack Moss is in the top 30, but that could change if the Colts bring back Jonathan Taylor. Keep tabs on his status throughout the week. I also have Jaleel McLaughlin in the top 25 with Javonte Williams (hip) injured.

Be sure to check back for updates … and good luck everyone!
