Before setting your Week 5 Fantasy football lineups, you NEED to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model advised owners to bench Vikings WR Adam Thielen, saying he'd finish outside the top 25 wide receivers. The result: Thielen recorded just two catches for six yards. Anyone who benched him dodged a MAJOR bullet.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 5 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model is high on this week: Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who has 36 targets this season and now faces a Bengals defense that's been shredded for eight receiving touchdowns this season. The model lists Fitzgerald as a top-10 wideout this week.

And a massive shocker: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who threw for 422 yards and two touchdowns last week against the Eagles, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 15. He's a player to consider putting on the bench this week.

The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of the rankings! This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your lineups.

So who should you sit and start in Week 5? And which surprising quarterback could lead you to victory? ... Join SportsLine now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which shocking QB comes out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
