Earlier in the week, I wrote about some waiver wire acquisitions for week 5. We also took a look at some potential trade targets and at some players who should be traded for those targets. In this article, I'll present my week 5 fantasy Football dream team, consisting of the best players possible at every single position.

QB1: Tom Brady.

Tom Brady is back and will be looking to make a statement in week 5 against a very weak Cleveland Browns defense. He can't be too happy about being suspended for the first four games of the year and will definitely come out slinging the ball around. Expect a huge performance in Brady's first game of the 2016 season.

RB1: David Johnson.

Of the top fantasy running backs drafted, the best by far has been Cardinals starter David Johnson. He has scored double digit fantasy points in every single game and shouldn't have any problem doing so once again against a very weak 49ers defense.

RB2: DeMarco Murray.

Raise your hand if you thought Murray would be the top scoring fantasy running back this season. Now put your hand down, you liar! Murray has been shockingly good through the first four weeks of the season and is averaging more than 18 fantasy points per game. In week 5, he will again have a great chance to put up big numbers against a Dolphins defense that struggles to stop the run.

WR1: Antonio Brown.

Darrelle Revis is not the elite corner he once was.

Brown is again tearing up the league and should get plenty of chances to do so against a Jets defense that has allowed a ton of fantasy points to opposing wide receivers for the first four weeks of the season. Expect solid fantasy production from Brown in week 5.

WR2: Kelvin Benjamin.

I don't care who is playing quarterback for the Panthers, Benjamin is an elite play this week.

The Buccaneers have allowed the highest number of fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in the first four weeks of the season, which makes Benjamin an elite play in week 5 of the fantasy football season.

TE1: Greg Olsen.

The Buccaneers are much better at covering tight ends than wide recievers, but Olsen remains the best tight end in fantasy and has scored the most fantasy points.

Given that status, it makes sense to list Olsen as the top tight end for week 5 of the season, especially if Derek Anderson plays quarterback.

Flex: Jordy Nelson.

The Packers get a fantastic matchup against a very weak Giants defense in week 5 that Nelson should be able to exploit. Nelson has averaged more than 14 fantasy points per game and should have no problem reaching that level of production against a defense that hasn't really been able to stop anybody so far.

D/ST: Patriots D/ST.

The Patriots defense wasn't bad in week 4, but the offense was awful. The defense had carried the Patriots to three straight victories before the Bills loss, and is playing at an elite level. The Patriots should have no problem forcing turnovers and putting up elite fantasy numbers in week 5.

K: Justin Tucker.

The Ravens kicker is ridiculously good for fantasy football thanks to his propensity for making long field goals. Tucker also hasn't missed a field goal yet, something that makes him an elite fantasy kicker not just for this week but also for the rest of the season.
