Which wide receivers will explode in Week 5? Which will flame out? The CFG staff breaks it all down.

Start 'Em, Sit 'Em - QBs
Start 'Em, Sit 'Em - RBs
Start 'Em, Sit 'Em - WRs


Start 'Em

Tevin Reese – Baylor vs. West Virginia
The Baylor passing attack is clicking right now and Reese has a huge role. This match up with West Virginia could possibly be the fantasy game of the season and Reese could find plenty of open space to do damage in. Reese could easily find pay dirt a couple times this week.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT

Marquelo Suel- Akron vs. Miami Ohio
Suel has been incredibly consistent this season averaging eight receptions and 88 receiving yards per game. He holds particular value in PPR leagues. Look for Suel to have another productive day this week against a shaky Miami Ohio defense.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT          

Lanear Sampson- Baylor vs. West Virginia
Terrance Williams and Tevin Reese get all the publicity for the Baylor Bears receiving corps but against the Mountaineers, feel free to pick up and start the team’s third option.  Sampson hasn’t scored since week one but that should end this Saturday as the ‘Eers will focus their efforts on slowing Williams on the outside and Reese on the inside. 
STAFF PICK - ERIK TJADEN

Ryan Grant- Tulane vs. Louisiana-Monroe
I know that the Warhawks have been giant killers this season and that the Green Wave have been more of a Green Ripple but I like Grant.  Despite passing catches from two quarterbacks this season Grant has has eclipsed the century mark against Rutgers and Tulsa.  Since losing Ryan Griffen, Grant has 126 yard receiving all from a freshman signal caller.  The Green Wave will play from behind all day which will have plenty of pigskins flying towards Grant.
STAFF PICK –ERIK TJADEN

Brandon Carter, TCU vs. SMU
Carter is averaging 20 fantasy points per game to start the season.  The SMU defense was shredded by Baylor in the opener, and while the Horned Frogs aren't nearly as potent through the air as the Bears, they will still find plenty of success.
STAFF PICK - TODD DEVRIES

Tavarese Mays, La-Monroe vs. Tulane
This play is for all you PPR freaks out there. Mays has snagged 9, 4 and 9 receptions through his first three games, and he figures to do more damage this week against a spotty (to put it kindly) Green Wave defense.
STAFF PICK - TODD DEVRIES


SIT 'EM 

Keenan Allen – Cal vs. Arizona State
Allen has not lived up to expectations so far this season and has scored only one touchdown in four games. His struggles could continue this week against a Sun Devil pass defense that ranks 5th in the nation allowing 140 yards per game.
STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT

Alex Neutz – Buffalo vs. UCONN
Neutz has been a touchdown machine in 2012 with six of his 15 catches going for scores. He may not find that kind of success this week versus a UCONN pass defense that has allowed three passing touchdowns on the season.
STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT, TODD DEVRIES

Darrin Moore- Texas Tech vs. Iowa State
Moore and the Red Raiders are coming off a bye week but they face a stingy secondary in Ames that has given up under 170 aerial yards a game this season.  The Cyclones play very well at home and will be looking to keep their winning streak alive.  I expect Seth Doege to see plenty of pressure and while he should toss for quite a few yards, it will be to several receivers.
STAFF PICK - ERIK TJADEN

Titus Davis- Central Michigan vs. Northern Illinois
Davis should ride the pine against the Huskies because they have a knack for getting to the quarterback, will control the clock on offense, and the game is in DeKalb.  All of these conditions should make for a long day for this Chippewa receiver as well as his quarterback, Ryan Radcliff. 
STAFF PICK - ERIK TJADEN

Rashad Greene - Florida State vs. USF
Greene only has 14 receptions through four games. Do the math, folks. He's just not getting it done. Unless you're in a deep BCS league or ACC-heavy format, stay away from Mr. Greene until he can prove he can string together back-to-back productive performances.
STAFF PICK - TODD DEVRIES

***UPDATE: Clemson's Sammy Watkins is not expected to play this week. Be sure to get him out of your lineups.
