Week 4 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, what should you do with the borderline starters, maybe your flex position, or your 12 team leagues where the WR2 is always a gamble. We’ll run through a few players that you should start if you are thinking of picking them up, or if you already have them. And we’ll be looking at who should be on your bench this week. We’ll avoid the obvious start players like, Hill, McCaffrey etc.
Start – Ja’Marr Chase – Cincinnati Bengals
Early rookie of the year favourite Chase is having a terrific season, and with a week 4 matchup vs Jags, this could be the game he goes off. The Jags have been awful this season and have now traded away former first round pick C J Henderson to the Panthers. Burrows and Chase have a real connection and it wouldn’t surprise me if he becomes the next Tyreek Hill of fantasy football. Chase has 4 TD’s and 220 yards in just 3 games.
Start – Jakobi Meyers – New England Patriots
The Patriots so far this season have been on a bit of a rollercoaster starting 1-2. Meyers is a TD short of being talked about, and this week vs the Buccs that TD will happen. Nobody has seen more targets for the Pats than Meyers’ 29, 19 of those becoming receptions for 176 yards. The Buccs defence has not been great this season and with Mac Jones constantly looking for Jakobi, he has the potential to go off this game.
Sit – Rob Gronkowski – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Gronk will be returning to New England with lifetime team mate Tom Brady looking to get one over on them. He didn’t have a great game against the Rams and got taken out of the game for a while after getting speared by Terrell Lewis. While Gronk has been performing well and seemingly going unnoticed by the opposition defence when they’ve got to worry about Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. This week will be a bit different I imagine, with the main focus on not letting Gronk spike the ball in the end zone. Most people will have another TE if they have Gronk anyway, might be worth swapping him out this week.
Sit – Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens
After narrowly avoiding an embarrassing defeat to Detroit Lions last week, thanks to a record breaking 66 yard field goal from Justin Tucker, Lamar will be facing a Broncos defence who are firing on all cylinders. Denver have only given up 278 passing yards in their last 2 games, which isn’t all Lamar can do I know, but they’ve also only given up 118 rushing yards. The Ravens beat the Chiefs in week 2 but either side of that they have looked average. The Broncos have only played average at best teams but if you’ve got another QB on your bench, I’d suggest starting him this week.
