Sit/Start Week 5: Reviewing All Fantasy Relevant Players In Every Single Game

The QB List Sit/Start Team offers their Sit or Start recommendations for every player in Week 5 of the 2023 NFL season.

Bye weeks are here. We have four teams not playing this week with some normal fantasy starters now on your bench. We are here for another week of Sit/Starts helping you navigate your lineup choices. As always we give you the range we expect the players to end up in based on PPR scoring and 6 points per passing touchdown.

    How is LaPorta a TE2? Doesn’t that mean you have him ranked between TE 13+ for the week? He’s a surefire TE1 every week at this point. Who are the 12 TEs you’d put above him week 5?

    • Dustin Ludke says:

      no ranking him as a TE2 means we expect between 5-10 points in a PPR league

      • Joe Fish says:

        Okay so there are 2 TE1s in the nfl?? Then a handful of TE2s and 100 TE9s? Got it

        Maybe you need to adjust your ranking to encompass the ever devolving role that TEs play in this iteration of the NFL

        • Dustin Ludke says:

          this year if you went just linear. there would be between 40-48 TE1s and the same for TE2. depending on if its 10 or 12 teams leagues.

          so far based on our ranges there have been 44 TE1s and 67 TE2s. so while TE2 has produced a higher rate we are confident that it will balance out

          last season there were a total of 221 TE1s (shroud be 216 based on a linear list) and 249 TE2s

          Joe, thank you for taking the time to comment! Classifying someone as a “TE1” sets an expectation of meaningful production. Lowering the threshold basically means we’d be offering false hope when in reality, only a handful of tight ends consistently produce meaningful contributions to fantasy lineups.

          Delineating a “Top 12” tight end group matters even less when so few are true difference-makers at a position that’s essentially a low, flat wasteland in terms of production. Case in point: Tyler Higbee was TE12 with 8.9 fantasy points. Fewer than 2 points separated him from Mo Alie Cox, the TE7…and fewer than 2 points separated Higbee from Hunter Henry, the TE19.

          I appreciate the thoughtful suggestion, though. Thanks for reading!

    Ranking DJ Moore as a flex for him to drop 49 ppr points is crazyyyy
