True stud running backs are difficult to find in fantasy football.
It's not easy to just draft a couple of great RBs and then plug them in every week. You need to draft many running backs, scour the waiver wire, watch for injuries and play the matchups.
And with most leagues requiring you to start two, three or even four running backs, it means that you have to be smart and dig deep at the position.
To help you out, I put together this summary of our top 0 ranked running backs for week 5.
You can also check out our full list of RB rankings or use our free who should I start tool for an interactive way to use our fantasy football rankings.

Lastly, the Browns, Chargers, Seahawks and Buccaneers have a bye this week so keep that in mind when setting your lineup.
