Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 5 Predictions

Four NFL teams are on a bye in Week 5: the Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs. That means your fantasy football teams will be without the likes of Russell Wilson, Christine Michael, Doug Baldwin, Jimmy Graham, Blake Bortles, Allen Robinson, Drew Brees, Mark Ingram, Brandin Cooks, Jeremy Maclin, and, most importantly, the Saints defense won't be around to exploit. There are significantly more stars missing than there were a week ago, and many fantasy owners will likely be left scrambling to fill out their lineups. Fortunately, even with just 14 games on the Week 5 slate, there are still plenty of under-the-radar players capable of helping owners who are struggling with byes, injuries or just flat-out ineffective players who need to be replaced. You can click through the gallery for a closer look at the top Week 5 sleepers to get into your lineup, as well as potential busts to consider leaving on your bench. (Getty)
