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.Last week was a rough week for our start ’em, sit ’em column. While we nailed a few choices (sitting Josh Gordon), other players either went off for big weeks (Jameis Winston) while others were held in check (Will Fuller).Nevertheless, we’re back at it this week, listing players to start and sit in fantasy football for Week 5. As always, these are the less-obvious choices, players who might be on the cusp of your starting lineup or your bench any given week.Here are out starts and sits for Week 5 of the NFL season:
START: Russell Wilson, QB
Team: Seattle SeahawksWeek 5 opponent: at Los Angeles RamsWhy you should start him: Wilson has put up big fantasy numbers in close games.

The Cardinals have been friendly to all players in fantasy this season. Dalton could be in for a rebound game and is a fine option if your quarterback is on a bye or has a tough matchup.
SIT: Jared Goff, QB

Team: Los Angeles RamsWeek 5 opponent: at Seattle SeahawksWhy you should sit him: We gave Goff a vote of confidence as a “start” last week and were burned. Goff is at 7 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on the season, and the Rams offense simply hasn’t been as crisp as it was last year. On the road vs. Seattle, he doesn’t have a great outlook.
START: LeSean McCoy, RB
Team: Kansas City ChiefsWeek 5 o
