Here are three players worth starting/sitting as we enter Week 5:


Eli Manning (QB, Giants)

Expect everyone on the struggling Giants offense to turn it around in a great matchup against the Eagles this week.

Ray Rice (RB, Ravens)

He looks healthy and should be able to bounce back this week as long as he gets enough carries against the Dolphins.

Antonio Gates (TE, Chargers)

He looks like he jumped in a time machine in the offseason and has been instrumental for the improved Chargers passing game.


Torrey Smith (WR, Ravens)

Could fall back to earth this week, as Brent Grimes and the Dolphins will likely make it a priority to take him away.

Andrew Luck (QB, Colts)

Should be avoided this week going against the Seahawks' top-ranked pass defense.

DeAngelo Williams (RB, Panthers)

Has a tougher matchup than it seems on the surface against a very solid Cardinals run defense.
