In many fantasy football leagues, we're already one-third of the way through the regular season. I know, it seems as if the season just started, but four weeks are complete, and quite a few leagues will start their playoffs in Week 13. Others will wait until Week 14. I wouldn't say time's runnin' out for you to save your season -- even though the Minnesota Vikings should just give up -- but you might want to start looking into trades to fix a slow start. A researcher here at ESPN just dealt Calvin Johnson for Darren McFadden … and, according to my top 100 below, he did well (especially given that he needed help at running back).

As always, the year-to-end rankings are here to help. These are not the Week 5 rankings; those will be published Wednesday and be updated Friday. Use the rankings below as if you were drafting today or, for more practical October purposes, as if you were trading for the rest of the way. Good luck and enjoy!
