Week 4 of fantasy football is here, and it time to set those lineups. This is my weekly Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em article where I try to help readers make tough and bold lineup decisions by benching a player that may normally start in their lineups, or start a player that usually doesn’t make the weekly starting roster.

Here are my picks from Week 3:

Start ‘Em

Kansas City Chiefs. Knile Davis. 5. player. 124. . RB

Davis got the start for the injured Jamaal Charles in Week 3 against the Dolphins. He took big time advantage of the start and was the workhorse for KC getting 32 carries tallying 132 yards and a rushing TD for a total of 17 points in standard leagues.

player. 15. . RB. New Orleans Saints. Khiry Robinson. 4

Well, I got half of this prediction right, I said that Robinson would likely get the bulk of the carries with Mark Ingram out because he is the overall more talented back comparing Robinson with Pierre Thomas. But I also said that Robinson would have a bigger game than he did. He got a good amount of carries with 18 but only got 69 total yards, not worth the start for most.


Trent Richardson. 3. player. 46. . RB. Indianapolis Colts

T-Rich saw a lot of playing time in Week 3, beating teammate Ahmad Bradshaw in the category for the first time this season (according to StampedeBlue.com). On the downside though, he still has yet to get into the endzone, while Bradshaw is becoming a mainstay with 3 TDs in the first 3 weeks. Richardson ended with an average 7 points vs. Jacksonville.

Sit ‘Em

Michael Crabtree. 2. player. 42. . WR. San Francisco 49ers

Man did I get this one wrong. Going into Week 3, Crabtree went up against top corner Patrick Peterson and the tough Cardinals defense which had me staying away from him last week. What does he do? He goes for 10 catches, 80 yards, and a touchdown, totaling 15 fantasy points in standard leagues. Sorry guys.

1. player. 32. . RB. Arizona Cardinals. Andre Ellington

Ellington ended up playing against the 49ers after being questionable all week heading up to the game. He got plenty of work, with 21 total touches, but only got 7 fantasy points in the end against a pretty tough San Fran defense (this one I actually got right).

So Week 3 overall was probably my worst week yet with predictions, but I wouldn’t say they were terrible. Let’s see if I can redeem myself this week. Here is my Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em picks for Week 4 of the 2014 NFL season.
