Week 4 Fantasy Football Sit ‘Em/Start ‘Em

Week 4 is upon us and this when fantasy players begin to really sweat. Bye weeks have begun and that means our rosters have holes in them, with important players like Peyton Manning, A.J. Green and Marshawn Lynch. Well, we have good news for you, hope is not lost if you have Peyton on your bench. There are still plenty of options on free agency, or hopefully on your bench, and you can still find a way to squeak out a win this week.

With that in mind, we present you 10 players you should start this week and 10 players you should consider sitting. For the purposes of this list, we're not going to tell you to start Aaron Rodgers or sit Blake Bortles because those are pretty obvious. We're going to look a little deeper than that and hopefully give you a little bit of insight into this week's important match-ups..

Without further adieu, here's your week 4, start 'em and sit'em candidates.

Rivers has been great so far this season, but that's not why he's on this list. The Chargers are welcoming the Jaguars to San Diego this Sunday. That means you should start every relevant San Diego Charger player this week. The Jaguars have given up the most points to QBs this year and are on the road this week, starting a rookie QB of their own. Rivers has been lights out this year and that can only continue against Jacksonville. Get him in your line-up.
