NFL Fantasy Football Week 4 Start / Sit Advice

Start / Sit Week 4




Quarterbacks

Brock Osweiler (vs Ten) Start
With JJ Watt out the Texans will have to rely heavily on their offense. Brock has the weapons and the arm strength to find them. Tennessee has a mediocre secondary in which Hopkins and Fuller will have the advantage over.

Alex Smith (vs PIT) Start
Smith is a master at controlling the game and the Steelers have yet to find their defense. With Charles back and West running hard Pittsburg will stack the box and force Smith to beat them by throwing the ball. He will.

Eli Manning (vs MIN) Sit
Once is luck.  Twice is a trend.  Three times is a habit.  The Viking defense is that good.  Their corners are fearless and will take the penalty before giving up the big play.  Only Tom Brady had more TD's than Eli last year.  This year Eli has had trouble finding the end zone to the tune of last year.  Seriously, if you would've told me OBJ would be scoreless in the first three weeks, I would've thought you crazy.

Running Backs

LeSean McCoy (vs NE) Start
McCoy finally had that performance we were waiting for against Arizona.  Sammy Watkins was put on the IR today.  McCoy is the only real weapon they have left.

LeGarrette Blount (vs BUF) Start
It's the last week without Brady.  Blount has been the workhorse for the team in his stead. Coach loves him, his teammates trust him, and Blount just loves to play.  In a division game and the chance to slap the NFL in face by going 4-0 without Brady, Blount is going to be running harder than ever. He's leading the NFL in rushes, yards, and tied for touchdowns. Enough said.

Latavious Murray (vs BAL) Sit
Murray has been trending in the wrong direction.  His number of touches per game have gone down every week.  The Ravens are no slouch on defense.  Sit Murray this week until he proves he can handle 20 touches a game again.

Wide Receivers

TY Hilton (vs JAC) Start
Hilton went off for 174 yards last week.  He and Luck are starting to find the chemistry again. When that happens it will be hard to find a better deep ball 1-2 punch.

Golden Tate (vs CHI) Start
Marvin Jones will get all the attention from a bad Bears defense.  Tate is the king on a big games here and there.  This week's game is going to be his best chance.  Follow the equation Great QB x Good WR / Bad Defense = Success

Brandon Marshall (vs SEA) Sit
Marshall is a big receiver.  Thats just about all he has going for him this week against Seattle.  He's not fast enough to run pass them.  He's not elusive enough to avoid them.  His style of play feeds right into that zone defense.


Tight Ends

Colby Fleener (vs SD) Start
We all know Fleener can play tight end well. Drew Brees finally found him in the end zone last week.  The Chargers are hurting right now. Look for this game to be another high scoring affair.

Jimmy Graham (NYJ) Sit
Sure Jimmy had a great game last week.  You have to do it more than once in the last 16 weeks for us to trust you, Jimmy.
