Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 4

Start ‘Em:

Jared Goff: Goff has been fairly hit or miss for fantasy owners this season, but he is consistently putting up high numbers of passing attempts. At home versus the Seahawks, Goff should be a priority start.

Chase Edmonds: The harder the opponent, the more the Dolphins trust Edmonds to make plays. Against a Bengals defense that is rated fairly middle-of-the-pack against running backs, expect Edmonds to perform a bit better than he has been.

James Robinson: Robinson has been great through three weeks. Against a Philadelphia defense that proved itself to be great against the pass last week, look for Robinson to be the go-to guy.

Terry McLaurin: I don’t have a statistical excuse for this. McLaurin has been really average in fantasy this season, but he has been consistent. He’s due for a breakout game any week now.

Darren Waller: Don’t give up on Waller after his poor showing versus the Titans on Sunday. I think he will make a great showing versus a Denver team that struggles to cover tight ends.

Sit ‘Em:

Michael Pittman: Pittman had a good game last week, but in Week 4, both teams will have a rushing battle on their hands, one that I don’t see Pittman getting the ball much in.

Carson Wentz: I’m not going to go to terribly hard on Wentz because it is not his fault he is doing so poorly. Unless his offensive line steps up and stops the brutality that got Wentz sacked NINE times last week, drop Wentz from your lineup.

Trevor Lawrence: To tie in with Carson Wentz, did I mention Wentz got sacked NINE times on Sunday? If you start Lawrence you are a masochist.

David Montgomery: Due to injury and a lack of performance, Montgomery is rapidly losing his job to Khalil Herbert.

D.J. Moore: Moore is not Mayfield’s primary target, not having more than three targets in any of the first three games. I would sit hesitantly on starting Moore, given his lack of success.
