Oct 5, 2012
Setting your lineup can be difficult once the full bye weeks commence, and that is where we find ourselves in Week 5. The waiver wire has been picked clean, options are limited and you’re stuck with some tough lineup decisions. Our Fantasy FootballWeek 5 Sit ‘Ems should help you decide who to bench, and as usual there are some big names on this list.
The biggest names are running backs Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills and Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans. Jackson returned from injury to play last week but only had 29 rushing yards. Johnson had his best game of the season with 141 yards, but he still finds himself on this list as well because of a tough matchup in Week 5.
TIGHT ENDS - SIT ‘EM
Brent Celek (Philadelphia Eagles) @ Pittsburgh
More was expected out of Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek this season. Celek has no touchdowns, and aside from a big Week 2 when he caught eight passes for 157 yards against Baltimore, Celek’s really done nothing. The Steelers have already given up a pair of touchdowns to tight ends this season but they’re still an elite defense and, as mentioned earlier, the Steelers also get their two best defensive players - Harrison and Polamalu - back. Thus, do not expect another Week 2-type performance from Celek this week.

Jared Cook (Tennessee Titans) @ Minnesota
Tennessee tight end Jared Cook is a boom or bust type of player, and thus far this season he’s been more bust than boom. His touchdown in Week 3 gave Cook his only double-digit fantasy performance of the season. He’s averaging just 3.5 catches per game, and is facing a game this week against the Vikings with Hasselbeck instead of Locker at quarterback. Cook’s potential is great, the problem is that he rarely reaches it to be considered worth a start.
