Fantasy football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em week 5
Sunday October 5th, 2014

Week 5 brings an entirely new slate of questions for fantasy football owners. Two top receivers in Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson are both questionable for Week 5 after being limited in practice all week with ankle injuries -- should owners have faith and start the receivers? The Detroit receiver is always a must-play when he's in the lineup, but the Houston receiver has been seriously underperforming so far this season. Should owners still start him as usual?
