Top 25 QB options for Week 5 fantasy football

The top two in our weekly quarterback rankings remains consistent, but we’ve got some movement below that in our list of the top 25 quarterbacks in fantasy football leagues for Week 5.

Week 5 us upon us, and it’s time to get your fantasy football lineups set. The quarterback position remains critical, and we’re here to break down the top 25 quarterbacks as you consider matchups for this week’s schedule.

Although we won’t get to roster Patrick Mahomes on the Week 5 main slate on DraftKings because he’s playing in a primetime game, he still tops the weekly QB rankings per usual. Lamar Jackson’s becoming a staple behind him, but then we shake things up a little bit this week.

Deshaun Watson and Tom Brady have tremendous matchups, and with the right game scripts, have as high a ceiling as anyone on the slate. Matt Ryan has been remarkably consistent, just due to the pure volume the Falcons have thrown the ball.

And while the Bengals and Cardinals may be winless, this matchup is one that makes both Kyler Murray and Andy Dalton top-10 plays this week.
