Jon is busy traveling this week, and I am busy creating pictures of the MNF broadcast team as a boy band, so it’s possible we won’t get rankings posted. (Actually, I’ve just been trying to stay caught up on the questions to the @FantasyMSF Twitter account and in the Week 5 Start/Sit comment section.)

However, that’s why we have a partnership with the folks over at Play This Guy, so that we can bring you consensus rankings even when we can’t bring you our own.

The rankings below are a compilation of numerous sites’ rankings from around the web. Links are included at the bottom of each list so you can pop on over to Play This Guy and see their complete rankings. And of course, you’re welcome to ask questions in the comment section. We’ll get to them as soon as we can.

Now here are your rankings:
