Week Four – Start/Sit

Start:

Odell Beckham, Jr. – WR, NYG

OBJ appears to be physically fine, back to terrorizing opposing defenders not named Josh Norman. Considering Stefon Diggs made the Bucs D look silly last week, a more talented WR like OBJ has a very high ceiling for his production this week.

Russell Wilson – QB, SEA

Russell Wilson looked like his old self late against Tennessee last week putting up huge numbers for those who kept him in the lineup. Against one of the worst Defenses in the NFL in Indianapolis, Russ should continue his hot streak.

Joe Mixon – RB, CIN

Mixon finally got the touches he deserved in week 3, telegraphing to the world that new Bengals OC Bill Lazor is a believer. 21 touches is a lot, and we have no reason to believe that there will be any less against a mediocre at best Defense in Cleveland.

Travis Kelce – TE, KC

The Redskins have a top tier Defense right now, but have allowed either 90+ yards or a TD to Tight Ends in every game this season. Kelce is inherently more talented, and a risk averse Alex Smith should target him a lot.

Sit: 

Pierre Garcon – WR, SF

Garcon torched LA last week and looked like his old self. However, week 4 will see him go up against Patrick Peterson, a guy who allows an average of under 7 fantasy points per game to #1 WRs.

Matthew Stafford – QB, DET

Stafford has a rough history against the Vikings, averaging under 15 fantasy points per game over the past two seasons. With essentially the same defensive personnel (and possibly more talent), Stafford might be best left on the bench against a tough Minnesota team.

Frank Gore – RB, IND

The Colts put on a nice offensive showing against the Browns, but let’s pump the brakes a bit as they’re still the Browns. Seattle at home should bring Gore’s numbers crashing back down to earth.

Jared Cook – TE, OAK

Cook had a nice game against Washington, scoring a TD in an otherwise smothering defensive game. Denver will prove to be a much tougher test as they have shut down opposing TEs going back multiple seasons.
