Fantasy Football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em week 4
Sunday September 28th, 2014

It's Week 4 in the NFL, and early bye weeks present some serious tests for fantasy football owners. We've already seen fantasy expectations turned upside down, when Eli Manning, Larry Donnell and the rest of the New York Giants completely shut down Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins on Thursday night. If you took a chance on starting the Giants' quarterback or tight end on your fantasy squad, then you're likely sitting pretty at this point.

What else will Week 4 bring fantasy owners? Should owners play it safe with top receivers Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall, who are both battling ankle injuries? Will Arian Foster, who's expected to start despite struggling with a hamstring injury, monopolize the Texans' running game, or is Alfred Blue, who rushed for 78 yards in Week 3, worth a start? Who is the best last-minute option for any owners who may have planned on starting Jake Locker?
