With bye season upon us, here are some players to consider starting and sitting in Week 5.

START:
Philip Rivers (QB, Chargers) - Going up against the Saints defense is just what the doctor ordered to help cure Rivers' early season struggles.

Kyle Rudolph (TE, Vikings) - Rudolph the Red-Zone Reindeer goes up against a defense (the Titans) that has already surrendered 7 TDs to TEs.

Ryan Williams (RB, Cardinals) - With Beanie Wells injured, this could be a breakout week for the talented Williams.

SIT:
Steve Johnson (WR, Bills) - The 49ers defense is very tough to score on, and I expect them to key in on and shut down Johnson.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (RB, Bengals) - Avoid the matchup against the surprisingly stout Miami run defense.

Kevin Kolb (QB, Cardinals) - Despite being unbeaten thus far, it is still way too soon to anoint Kolb as a startable fantasy option.
