Fantasy Football Rankings: Week 5 Quarterbacks

Week 5 of the NFL season marks the highly-anticipated return of Tom Brady to the New England Patriots' lineup. I hope I never hear the words "deflate" or "gate" again. Especially when said together. Anyway, he and the Pats play at Cleveland Sunday, and it goes without saying you start him against the Browns. Could there be rust? Sure. But could he have a four-touchdown game in him? I like those chances better. No need to get cute with your fantasy football lineup. You drafted Brady, you play him. And I don't have to tell you Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski get huge bumps in fantasy value heading forward. Other big news from Week 4 included concussions for Cam Newton and Carson Palmer, and a shoulder injury for Trevor Siemian. We'll get to those a bit later in the post. And we'll be missing some heavy hitters with these week's byes. The Saints (Drew Brees), Seahawks (Russell Wilson), Jaguars (Blake Bortles) and Chiefs (Alex Smith) are off. But, again, the show must go on. So click through the gallery below to see our top 25 fantasy football quarterback rankings for Week 5. (Getty)
