QB Marcus Mariota
He had quite the game last week but against the Bills, you will be lucky if he gets 10 total points this week. Look for the Bills to put pressure on Mariota early and often. The pressure will either cause Mariota to make mistakes or Tennessee will be forced to give it to their wrecking ball, Derrick Henry.
RB LeVeon Bell
This isn’t really a hard sit as much as to be wary and if there is any chance to pivot this week I’m doing it against an amazing Eagles run defense. Bell is considered a top 10 RB but those numbers shouldn't be there this week. If you have someone in the high-end RB2 area, consider going with them. ie Aaron Jones, Phillip Lindsay
WR Odell Beckham Jr
Again I’m taking a high-end risk to sit him in this. Matt makes a solid case in the Baker argument and they are also the reasons why Odell has struggled(see below). Combined with a solid undefeated 49ers team and their stellar defense against the pass. I’m staying away this week, if at all possible.
QB Baker Mayfield
Baker has a total of 4TD and 6 INT
The Niners, who he is facing, has given up 5 TD and 5 INT
He should throw another INT or two in this one.
For those that drafted him, it'll be a rough week if you have not diverted yet.
Look for a streamer for this week.
RB Josh Jacobs
The time has come to sit him if you can.
The Jets have only given up one TD to an RB and only 235 yards totally l
Jacobs has not gotten a TD since week one with 307 yards rushing. I expect him to do as well as week 3...he will struggle to get anything going.
WR JuJu Smith-Schuster
Smith-Schuster is dealing with a toe injury and is listed as questionable, did not practice Thursday. Mason Rudolph has not done him any favors and this injury adds complications to his fantasy prospects. Even if he plays you are SITTING him.
TE Ricky Seals-Jones
After last week you might be tempted to put this guy into your lineups. I know some of you are desperate at TE but don't let the desperation make you put in this TE. He will be inconsistent in this Cleveland offense, aside from that fact they are facing a top DEF against TEs. The 49ers have only given up 87 yards to TEs and only 1 TD, only 1!
Stop the madness!
QB Kyler Murray
The Bengals have been throwing the ball a lot, almost as much as this guy right here. This actually should end up a pretty good game for fantasy on both sides of the ball. I expect Murray to feast against this team that has struggled all year.
RB Jaylen Samuels
Baltimore has been a somewhat solid defense but I expect the Steelers to put up points. If James Conner plays, I expect him to be limited and Samuels will be a necessary tool for Rudolph who may also be without JuJu Smith-Schuster
WR Courtland Sutton
He has established himself as the top target in this offense. They have had many difficult matchups leading into this game. This to me should be a game he actually gets a breath and will end up having quite the game. Start Him Up!
TE Tyler Eifert
Is it cheating to go with whoever is facing the Arizona Cardinals? Well, either way, wherever needed I’m starting Tyler Eifert against the cardinals once again riding that narrative even though this one is much scarier than last weeks.
QB Andy Dalton
This is one of the best weeks to stream the Red Rifle! He is going up against Arizona who has given up 10 TDs and has yet to make an interception! Dalton sputtered horribly last week but it's about to change against this weak defense.
RB LeSean McCoy
Early in the season, the split between him and Damien didn't hinder McCoy. We should see McCoy produce at a high level against this Indianapolis defense who have given up 413 yards rushing to RBs. Roll him out there with confidence.
WR Cole Beasley
In PPR formats this man has become one of the most consistent WRs out there. With John Brown on the other side a definite start, Beasley will be the guy Allen leans on in this one, and if Allen misses this game, while he is in concussion protocol, Barkley will find him early and often down low bringing his ceiling even higher.
TE Delanie Walker (Matt’s Start)
Yes, he has disappointed as of late. But he continues to lead the Titans in both targets and receptions. Walker will look to turn it around this week and is a low-end TE1 starter.
TE Delanie Walker (Nate’s Sit)
This is in connection with Mariota he has been fairly good all year but again this buffalo defense is very good and I don’t want to play any part against a team that successfully slowed down even the patriots
