If you are clicking to make last minute lineup decisions and are looking for a start from tonight’s game, you came to the wrong place. I do have a recommended sit for tonight’s game which we will get to a little later. The media is reporting that the next game or two are very important for his employment status. A win at home on Thursday just has to be a must for Gase. There isn’t a better spot for the Jets to get a win left on the schedule. If Gase doesn’t win this one, he might as well pack up his office before he goes home. I understand that a lot of players came to Gase’s defense after their on Sunday, but I know that he can’t be super popular in the locker room. It’ll be interesting to see if the full team rallies around him and puts on an inspired effort. Hear are your start/sits for week 4!

Start

Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow is the real deal, even if his offensive line isn’t. I’ve been encouraged since watching him in week 1 against the Chargers, but the last couple of weeks, the fantasy points have caught up with his potential. Burrow has made comments that he is not used to losing, and following the umm… momentum of a tie, he will be salivating to perform in a winnable game against Jacksonville. Jacksonville is on the bottom half of the league against the pass this season and 28th against quarterbacks in fantasy. That includes a matchups against Ryan Fitzpatrick and Philip Rivers.

James Robinson

Sorry to keep stacking this game. It’s not even the last one. I can’t help it, I just want you to get fantasy points! While the Jaguars looked bad against Miami, James Robinson didn’t. I must confess before the season started, I told my Razzball  writing compadres to stop wasting their time trying to figure out the Jaguars’ backfield but it turns out that I was the one wasting my time not digging in. 

Robinson has two straight games with at least 100 all purpose yards and he scored twice last Thursday. The Jaguars’ only points. With the Jaguars maybe missing Chark again, Robinson is the most dangerous weapon in this offense. Cincinnati is 31st in yards given up in the running game and although Miles Sanders didn’t get a ton of touches last week, he did almost get to 100 yards on the ground. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt feasted the week before. Teams can run all over the Bengals.

Darrell Henderson

The status of Cam Akers is pretty uncertain when it comes to Sunday against the Giants. This should lead to at least one more week of Darrell Henderson dominating the touches in the backfield. Even if Akers suits up, I still feel comfortable rolling out Henderson after last week’s performance against the Bills. I’ve previously written that I think Cam Akers puts at least a cap on Henderson’s rest of season potential, but this week should be another big Henderson week against the Giants.

Tyler Boyd

This is the final portion from the Bengals and Jaguars game, I promise. After a slow week 1, Boyd has really gotten it going since. Boyd has 21 targets over the past two weeks and A.J. Green has 19 targets the last two weeks and Green doesn’t have much to show for them. Boyd on the other hand, caught 10 passes for 125 yards last week. The rest of the reasons to start Boyd can be found in the Joe Burrow segment. I love this stack.

Will Fuller

Fuller has at least 15 fantasy points in each of the two games that he has started this season. He is almost a must play when he is healthy in any format. Deshaun Watson and co. draw Minnesota this week and Minnesota has been awful against the pass so far this season. With the struggles in the Minnesota secondary, I expect Fuller to bust at least one big one this week.

Dalton Schultz

Schultz has seen 16 targets over the past two weeks since the Cowboys lost Blake Jarwin. Opportunity is exactly what you want to see out of a cheap tight end option against Cleveland. Cleveland is 30th against tight ends so far this season and although Schultz may be the 4th option in the passing game for Dallas, I’m willing to roll the dice on him in what should be another day of volume for Dak. 

Sit

Carson Wentz

There isn’t a really easy pick for a quarterback sit this week. There are a lot of great matchups for quarterbacks this week. I would have leaned with sitting Tom Brady this week, but Melvin Ingram landed on the IR and the Chargers are traveling across the country. So Carson Wentz it is. He has looked pretty bad so far and a good portion of his fantasy points last week came from a desperation touchdown scramble at the end of the game against the Bengals. Although San Francisco is pretty beat up, I don’t think this is the week that Wentz turns it around. 

Myles Gaskin

Myles Gaskin can get points in the passing game, but I’m not comfortable enough to roll him out against the Seahawks this week. Surprisingly, the Seahawks are 2nd best in the league in rushing yards allowed with 66.7 per game. I really do like Gaskin, but I’m looking for a different option this week. On the bright side, Brian Flores has said a lot of great things about Gaskin this week, so he has that going for him. 

Marquise Brown

Marquise Brown had a 100 yard game in week 1 and has been silenced since. It’s been tough sledding in the passing game the last couple of weeks for the Ravens, although they didn’t really need it against Houston in week 2. If the Washington Football Team offers anything at all, it is their defense against the pass. They give up 209 yards per game through the air so far through three games. 

Noah Fant

I don’t necessarily hate Noah Fant this week, I just don’t know what to expect out of *checks notes* Brett Rypien. I suspect that this game is going to be ugly for both offenses. This feels like a big Melvin Gordon game if the Broncos are able to get out to an early lead. I love Fant, but I don’t want to leave Thursday night with a low score in my TE spot. 

  1. Nick says:

    Hey man, I’m in a tight spot this week considering I don’t have AJ Brown/C Davis to play at WR. I currently have Julio at WR1 (I think I have to take this risk, options on waivers and are not worth it in my opinion – you will see below) & the rest lies as follows

    Julio, DK Metcalf, Crowder
    Bench WRs: TreQuan Smith, AJ Brown, C Davis & Deebo on IR

    So really I have to risk it with Crowder tonight & hope he plays/can get me 5 pts at least…or plug in TreQuan which could be a bad outing if Thomas is back…waiver options include K Cole (available Saturday), Hardman, C Samuel (available Sunday) or Isabella…so options kind of suck in my 12 team standard…what do ya do??

      MB says:

      I wouldn’t be too bummed about starting Crowder. I think he’s your best option

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        Crowder did well for WR3 production in a standard league, 10.4 points…but Gordon was a sweet flex play with 23.8 :)

        Now I just need Julio to play & not be a decoy all game

  2. William Hung says:

    Which Eagles WR is a better dart throw for ROS performance – Alshon Jeffrey or Greg Ward?
    Also, Devonta Freeman was dropped – is he a better dart throw over any of the following RB guys I currently have: James White, Jeff Wilson Jr., Lindsay, Kelley, Dobbins, or Akers?

    I’m in Week to week mode right now as I am 0-3 so I don’t think I can drop Jeff Wilson for this week since I’m gonna roll him out there with James White.

    My first 2 picks were Barkley and Godwin – that’s all you need to know

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I like Ward, always have so that’s my answer there. I’d drop Lindsay for Freeman.

      I had the same Barkley Godwin start in the Scott Fish Bowl so I feel your pain

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Bad luck last week – without Barkley I managed to be 3rd in scoring but i played the team that was top in scoring…

        Also, I should do kicker rankings cause I’ve been killing it with Gostkowski when everyone was off the bandwagon – it’s a tough year when my best pick is a kicker

  3. Sully says:

    Which 2 should I drop for an IDP & FA J. Kelley.. I thought another one of my guys was going to be Out.

    B. Scott, L. Murray, Z. Moss, C. Hyde

    1. Trade freeman for davante Parker?
    2. Do you see dobbins having any relevancy this year
    3. Drop hamler for duke johnson?

    14m league. Thanks!

      MB says:

      1. Yes
      2. Not as much as I did after week 1. Leaning no, but you never know
      3. I’d rather hold on to Hamler

  8. toolshed says:
    (link)

    Which 3 do I start out of mike davis, hunt, beckham, lamb, mclaurin. Need 2 wr and a flex. .5 ppr. I love mclaurin but hate his matchup. I am holding out hope for beckham and they will need to throw thus week. I like how savis was used last week. This seems like a game that we will see more hunt than chubb but hunt missed practice. I like lambs matchup he seems due to score but they are spreading it out to everyone. Thx

    • MB

      MB says:

      Davis, Hunt (if healthy), and McLaurin. Lamb if hunt sits

  9. Zandy says:

    With Lazard hurt. MVS a must roster? Drop T Higgins for him?

      He hasn’t looked great, maybe another Packer will emerge. I’d keep Higgins long term

  10. Dan says:

    Hey MB,

    Would you drop any of the following guys to grab Brian Hill?

    Hardman
    Darrel Williams (I own CEH)
    Hines (Unfortunately starting as my RB2 this week with Connor PPD)
    Akers

    I feel like the answer is no across the board but had to ask.

    Thanks!

      Jones with Fournette out

  12. Futt Bumble says:

    My PPR RB2 choice this week is Gaskin or David Montgomery. Help! Both will get volume against good running defenses. Neither will score.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah you can’t really go right. Lean Gaskin, he might at least do some damage through the air

  13. Ludicrous Speed says:

    J Robinson or D Montgomery this week?
    12T half ppr.

      Robinson easily

  14. Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

    12 teamer PPR with full return yardage (lost barkley) 10 yards per point, same as scrimmage (even with that i dropped sims for p-will lately)
    QB: AAron, cousins (cousins good @ SEA matchup in week 5 when rodgers off)
    RB (2): AAron, hines, mont, AP, scott, j-will (appears dillon won’t get this work if AAron goes out)
    WR (2): parker, woods, hardman, harry, p-will
    TE (1): kelce
    1 flex
    IR (10): penny

    already trying to waiver landry dropping harry (it’s weekly reset to reverse standings waivers), somebody dropped ingram. drop scott (return yardage though), or AP or even j-will for ingram (it’s extremely likely i won’t get both of landry/ingram, possibly neither)

    1. you agree with harry dropped for landry?
    2. if ingram who’s drop?
    3. who’s better for this lineup if adding both (with barkley gone instinctively the fear says RB depth)

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      1. Definitely Landry > Harry
      2. Still Harry if you get Ingram
      3. Yep, definitely would be targeting RB depth

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        sorry, in 2 the assumption was if i try for ingram first i’d lose a RB, otherwise i’m leaving myself with 4 total WR’s (and 2 of them the MIA guys). harry dropped for landry, sure, but esp if i’m targeting ingram first, j-will or AP or scott dropped first. obv in non super huge return scoring this is just easy scott, but here probably not so easy. j-will i’d never get if AAron went out in a game (i’m 2-1 and am a top 4 scoring team, so i’m literally never a good waiver to start week), plus j-will would be a huge value if AAron jones did go out on that offense.

  15. otisP says:

    Full point PPR, in some trouble this week with RBs – CMC out for a couple more weeks, James Connor unexpected bye week, Philip Lindsay still out, and lost Tarik Cohen for the year.

    Rolling this week with Kareem Hunt (hurt but looks like he will play) and Duke Johnson.

    My WRs are Tyreek Hill, and Tyler Lockett and for this week need to use Landry or Slayton in the flex given my RB problems. QB is Josh Allen.

    Question: Sitting at 2-1 on the year. Considering offering Tyreek Hill for James Robinson or David Montgomery to strengthen my RBs. Thinking I could then deal an RB once CMC returns for a WR1/2. Thoughts? Would I be overpaying for James Robinson by dealing Tyreek?

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      absolutely overpaying there if doing it, but you are in situation where it’s arguably doable.

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        one problem, no guarantee at all you’ll just be able later to “trade a RB for a WR 1/2” with the RB’s you’ll have. maybe hunt, maybe not.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      No way I’m dealing Tyreek for James Robinson

  16. JC says:
    (link)

    Standard scoring league. If Julio can’t go,

    1. Start Slayton or AJ Green?
    2. Or pickup Shenault or Beasley and drop Slayton or Green.

    Thanks

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      1. Slayton
      2. Have to hold on to AJG because of his target share

  17. Dave says:

    Need 2 for flex in PPR between Valdes Scantling, Gaskin and J. Jefferson.

  18. Nick says:

    Hey bud, do I roll with Brees this week again, even with M Thomas ruled out? I modified our teams to add an extra bench slot for this one week (will return to 6 next week if all teams returns to play but if there are more postponements we will leave it at 7 or maybe even bump to 8 if more then 2 games are PPD)…therefore I could grab Fitzmagic against Seattle & play him this week? Other options are Cousins, Herbert, Foles, Carr..but they all probably below Brees, right? Do you also agree about modifications to league roster (bench spots) due to CoVid? I’m Commish so I’m making final says based on commentary in our league chat

      Yes, I am a fan of adding bench spots. Also, I’d stream Fitz
