Do you trace ancestor siblings and their children thoroughly?

I tend to only research ancestor siblings if it helps me go back on their parents who are direct ancestors. I dont feel the bond with ancestor siblings, cousins and such because they are not direct ancestors, just blood relatives of my direct ancestors. I dont discard them but I dont research them in depth unless it has potential to help me find one or both of their parents.
