Patriots fantasy football start/sit advice for their week five match-up against the Bengals.

Start

Julian Edelman, WR: Being that Julian Edelman is the only wide receiver Tom Brady trusts, he's a must play even in this tough match-up. High-upside WR2 in PPR. He's a 2/3 in non-ppr.

Rob Gronkowski, TE: Gronkowski might not be fully healthy, but his red zone presence still makes him better than most TE1's.

Sit

Tom Brady, QB: Brady is only a "desperation start" option. Seriously, I went all out to trade for Tony Romo this week to replace Brady in my primary league. Yes.,Tony Romo.

Stevan Ridley / Shane Vereen, RB: Can't trust either back at the moment, as the game plan shifts so dramatically week-to-week with these two.

Brandon LaFell, WR: LaFell is one to keep on the radar as he's been the Patriots #2 WR the past two weeks. But at this point, he's a WR5 at best.
