Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Week 5: Smart Matchup Plays, Sleepers and More
Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

It's Week 5, and a fantasy football victory must happen to keep the postseason hopes alive.

We're nearing the midway point of the fantasy regular season, and much like pro football, the contenders and pretenders continue to gradually spread apart.

Fortunately, there are quarterbacks like Peyton Manning who are capable of racking up tons of yards and points. Despite Manning and the Denver Broncos traveling to play Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick's defense is vulnerable against the pass.

Just last week, the Pats allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to toss for 350 yards and four touchdowns, as well as four interceptions. But after throwing three first-quarter interceptions on the road to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, Manning this week is unlikely to replicate that or Fitzpatrick's turnover numbers.

So, along with Denver's stud gunslinger, let's move ahead and see what's in store for another fantasy football weekend.
