Start ‘Em

RB DeMarco Murray (DAL) – If you drafted DeMarco Murray this year, congratulations. Murray is having a career year and is currently leading the NFL in rushing yards. As long as he is healthy, he is a must start and that may be a possibility in 2014. The Dallas Cowboys appear to finally have an offensive line and Murray is benefiting. Coming into fantasy football week 5 action, he is averaging 10-20 receiving yards, 120+ rushing yards, 1 TD.

Start DeMarco Murray!

WR Emmanuel Sanders (DEN) – Even though Wes Welker may be inserted into the starting lineup this week, it is still a good idea to start Emmanuel Sanders as he has been one of Peyton Manning’s top targets while Welker was out. Given how much the Broncos throw the ball, don’t leave Sanders out of your starting lineup.

TE Owen Daniels (BAL) – Owen Daniels is a great option at tight end for fantasy football week 5 and is available in a lot of leagues. With Dennis Pitta out, Steve Smith the main target of opposing defenses, and Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones all but non existent in 2014, Daniels will start to see more and more Joe Flacco targets headed his way.
