Who to start and who to sit? That’s the question that plagues everyone who plays fantasy football on a weekly basis?
Honestly, it’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in this crazy game of fantasy. Will you get it right all the time? No, because football will surprise, especially if you buy into the adage: On any given Sunday, any team can beat any other team. We’re here to help you work through those decisions.
Here are the Week 5 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit.
Wide receivers are becoming the root of any successful fantasy teams and points per reception (PPR) has become more of the norm. Some receivers have a nose for the end zone, others do not. The position can be subdivided into elite receivers who can do it all, high target/reception slot receivers, some can rush the ball and some who return kicks.
Regardless of where your receivers get categorized, the bottom line is, can they beat their coverage? Here are a few that do not match up well.
Robby Anderson, Carolina Panthers vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Anderson had a cherry matchup last week against the Cowboys but came away with only five catches (on 11 targets) and 46 scoreless yards. Anderson hasn’t scored since Week 1 and since then, D.J. Moore has dominated the targets on the Panthers. It’s a shame too because the Eagles could not stop Tyreek Hill last week, but they have kept most other receivers in front of them. That looks like another big game for Moore.
