Week 5 Waiver Wire Rankings - Fantasy Baseball Pickups Include Ramon Laureano, George Kirby, Spencer Strider, Josh Winder

Ramon Laureano - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, MLB DFS Picks, Betting Picks

Welcome to Week 5 of the fantasy baseball season. Just like any other week, we have put together a full assortment of fantasy baseball waiver wire articles. We are with you every single week, and are going to do our best to help guide you through the entire MLB season and bring home that fantasy trophy.

For those who are not familiar, our team's fantasy baseball waiver wire articles get published on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays each week. First up is our two-start pitcher streamers article by lead editor Pierre Camus, and the top hitter streamers and starts article by Justin Dunbar, released late each week to give you a head start on the week ahead. For you premium subscribers, you get our overall waiver wire article, compliments of Nick Mariano. These will give you a solid overview of the waiver wire options.

RotoBaller's resident points league guru Nick Gaut brings you his weekly points league pitcher pickups and points league hitter pickups. KC Bubba then brings your his deeper waiver wire pickups for all positions, with a slant for NFBC leagues. In addition to these articles, we also dig deeper for each position with individual waiver wire articles: starting pitcher pickups, outfield pickups, 2B and SS pickups, 1B and 3B pickups, and players to consider dropping. Last but not least, Anthony Aniano gives you two videos a week for his waiver wire hitters video and waiver wire pitchers video.

Be sure to check all of our preseason fantasy baseball rankings for Roto, Points, H2H, dynasty, best ball, prospects and more:

So below you will find the overall rankings list, and below that each individual position in priority order. Hopefully this helps you win your waiver wire this week! Let's get to it.
