Week 5: Player Upgrades

The passers, runners and receivers rising the short and long term fantasy football ranks This week's picks include Philip Rivers, Alex Smith, Darren Sproles, Danny Woodhead, and Kenbrell Thompkins.


Step aside, Kenny Britt. Outta' the way, Kendall Wright. Nate Washington is still the man in Tennessee. Be it Locker or Fitzpatrick, Titans quarterbacks have been looking Washington's way the past two weeks to the tune of 12 catches for 236 yards and two scores. Enjoy the outburst while you can and grab Washington, who is essentially the only standout performer among the Titans wideouts.


It's been a hot-and-cold start for Fleener thus far, but Sunday's 77-yard, one touchdown effort put him back on the fantasy radar. The season-ending injury to Dwayne Allen also clears up the murky tight end picture in Indy. Fleener has a tough matchup against Seattle this week, but follows it up against the lowly secondaries of San Diego and Denver. The Colts offense is rounding into form, so get on board with their top TE.
