Each week, we’re listing players to start or sit in fantasy football.As always, these are less-obvious choices, players fantasy owners might be on the cusp of starting or sitting.Here are start ’em, sit ’ems for Week 5 of the NFL season.Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.We’re back with our fantasy football start/sits for Week 6 following a Week 5 that was fairly successful but also saw some unexpected disappointments.Six of the 11 players we recommended starting finished in the top 20 in scoring at their respective positions while five of our recommended “sits” finished outside of the top 30 in their positions. Unfortunately, there were a few curveballs thrown our way, like the Chiefs benching LeSean McCoy after a fumble, Tyler Eifert breaking the streak of tight ends scoring on the Cardinals, and D.J. Moore putting up a solid 8-91-0 on the Jaguars.As always, fantasy football remains unpredictable.Heading into Week 6, here’s our fantasy football start ’em, sit ’ems.

START: Kyler Murray, QB

Team: Arizona CardinalsWeek 6 opponent: vs. Atlanta FalconsWhy you should start him: Murray has been relatively efficient passing the ball in recent weeks, and this week, he gets a Falcons defense that just got run over by Deshaun Watson. Murray also has 189 rushing yards and 2 rushing touchdowns over the last three weeks, meaning he should remain effective, even if he’s not throwing touchdowns.

SIT: Philip Rivers, QB

Team: Los Angeles ChargersWeek 6 opponent: vs. Pittsburgh SteelersWhy you should sit him: Rivers generally offers a modest fantasy ceiling. It’s even worse when the Chargers offense is flat as they have been lately, scoring 20 points or less in three of the last four weeks. Rivers gets the Steelers’ strong pass defense in LA this week, and if past games are any indication, it may feel as if the Steelers are the home team instead.

START: Gardner Minshew, QB

Team: Jacksonville JaguarsWeek 6 opponent: vs. New Orleans SaintsWhy you should start him: Minshew has proven himself to be a playable quarterback in fantasy, putting up solid numbers in road games the last two weeks. Now he gets a Saints team that ranks just 20th against the pass. Minshew hasn’t thrown an interception since Week 1, but he did fumble three times last week. As long as he protects the ball, he should offer a safe floor.

SIT: Carson Wentz, QB

Team: Philadelphia EaglesWeek 6 opponent: at Minnesota VikingsWhy you should sit him: Wentz hasn’t completed more than 60% of his passes or thrown for over 300 yards since Week 1. He’s been careful with the ball, and the Eagles are sixth in touchdowns per red zone appearance, according to Football Outsid
