The NFL is back for Week 5, and we’ve got fantasy football starting lineups to sort out for Sunday’s kickoffs. If you had Cooper Kupp or Tyler Lockett, your wide receiver position is off to a strong start. The rest of us need to figure out the position however, and there are always intriguing names to consider.
The waiver wire is thinning out, so you’re left with decisions based on what’s on your roster heading into Sunday. If you’re coming down to the wire with a tough decision, we want to provide a few options that we think are worth starting — potentially over some bigger names
Will Fuller/Kenny Stills/Keke Coutee, Houston Texans
The Falcons have been disastrous against passing games, and we saw it last week with Marcus Mariota and his receivers. This game could easily blow through the 49 point over/under, and it will be in large part because of the combined passing attacks between Houston and Atlanta. Stills is a game-time decision, and Coutee would start in his place if needed. Fuller is a solid start, and Stills or Coutee offer some flex help for deeper leagues or if you have some bye considerations.
Emmanuel Sanders/Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos
Both are coming off big games against a Jalen Ramsey-less Jaguars squad. They face a banged up Chargers team in Week 5, and this could be where Vic Fangio finally gets his first W. Neither receiver is a WR1, but look for both receivers to put together a nice WR2 performance.
D.J. Moore/Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers
Speaking of the Jalen Ramsey-less Jaguars, Carolina gets them this week. Both put up limited numbers last week as Kyle Allen came back to earth. Don’t undervalue either as they should bounce back in Week 5. I think Moore has the higher floor, but both are worth starting consideration.
