The fantasy football season is in full swing, so deciding who to start and sit each week can be critical. To help you win your matchup this weekend, here are my week 4 fantasy football players to start and sit:
Guys to Start:
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buffalo Bills (vs. New England Patriots) – The Amish Missile has electrified the Bills’ passing attack this season, as he has thrown 8 touchdowns already this year. Fitzpatrick also threw 4 touchdowns in his two games against the Pats last season, so expect another strong performance from the former Harvard grad.
RB Cedric Benson, Green Bay Packers (vs. New Orleans Saints) – Benson has been getting better with each week, so expect him to have a breakout game against a Saints run-defense that is allowing 215 rushing yards against per game.
WR Eric Decker, Denver Broncos (vs. Oakland Raiders) – Decker has been very quiet this year, but many picked him to be the hands down number one fantasy option in Peyton Manning’s new offense. Expect Decker to finally show his face against a very unpolished Raiders’ secondary.
TE Matellus Bennett, New York Giants (vs. Philadelphia Eagles) – New York quarterback Eli Manning threw 5 touchdowns against the Eagles last season, so anticipate on Eli’s favorite red zone threat to get into the action this weekend.
Guys to Sit:
RB Andre Brown, New York Giants (@ Philadelphia Eagles) – With starting tailback, Ahmad Bradshaw, returning this from a sprained neck this weekend, Brown will now be delegated to the backup position. He may have jumped over David Wilson on the depth chart, but with Bradshaw back in action, Brown is expected to only get 10-15 touches a game.
WR Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears (@ Dallas Cowboys) – Dallas has blanketed any receiver that has stepped off the line this year, as they are only allowing 137 yards through the air per game. Expect the struggling Chicago offense to continue to do so on Monday night.
