Illustration for article titled Fantasy Football Week 5: Start ’Em, Sit ’Em

Onion Sports has expert analysis on which players to keep and which players to drop from your fantasy football starting lineup this week:

Start ’Em

  • EJ Manuel (QB): Manuel is unlikely to see a drop in productivity after being benched this week
  • Tony Romo (QB): The Cowboys quarterback will have an edge in this week’s home game at AT&T Stadium, where he feels most comfortable being booed
  • Kirk Cousins (QB): Cousins is playing with all the confidence expected of someone starting ahead of a team’s $35 million investment

Sit ’Em

  • Blake Bortles (QB): Bortles will likely struggle against the famed Steelers defense that limited Mike Glennon to just 302 yards and two touchdowns last week
  • Jason Witten (TE): Witten has emerged as a hugely effective blocker for the Cowboys, but you don’t get fantasy points for that, so fuck him
  • Geno Smith (QB): The second-year quarterback is closer than ever to reaching his true potential
