Fantasy football sit, start, and sleepers: Divisional picks for 2017 Week 4
Dallas is hosting the Rams in what could be Jared Goff’s official fantasy football coming out party.
Philadelphia takes their golden-legged kicker to Los Angeles so they can show the Chargers what field goals look like, and the Giants head to Tampa as they look to start the season 0-4.
The Redskins travel to Kansas City for Monday Night Football.
SIT: New York Giants Defense
I feel like this week, the Buccaneers offense goes for 30+ points. I even say as much in the Week 4 preview podcast episode at the end of this post. Unless a certain Giants receiver returns a punt or missed field goal for a touchdown, there isn’t going to be much to count on with this unit.
START: Running Back, Ezekiel Elliott – Dallas Cowboys
20+ carries in two games this season. Both Cowboys wins.
Expect plenty of Elliott against the Rams and their second-friendliest fantasy defense against the position.
SLEEPER: Running Back, Chris Thompson – Washington Redskins
If you have Thompson, congratulations on your fantasy football savvy. If you don’t, and he’s available, then stop playing against fifth graders, but pick him up anyway.
The Chiefs have a solid defense, and are giving up an average of just over 18-points per game to opposing running backs.
This puts them at 11th in the league, and is worth a flier if you need one.

Miami and New England are at home, each hosting an NFC South foe. The Jets host the Jaguars and Buffalo is in Hotlanta.
SIT: Wide Receiver, Jarvis Landry – Miami Dolphins
I wonder what Landry could do if he ever got a legit franchise quarterback.
The talented receiver is stuck in fantasy football purgatory, stuck between Corey Coleman and Russell Shepard.
There will be a game when Landry has two scores and like 120-yards, but do you really want to keep plugging him in hoping Smokin’ Jay Cutler can find him THIS week?
Even against the Saints, he’s a sit.
START: Running Back, LeSean McCoy – Buffalo Bills
The Bills are in Atlanta where the defense plays fast. If the Bills want to win, they’ll need McCoy to play fast too.
Plus, the Falcons are giving up 22+ points per game to running backs.
SLEEPER: Running Back, Jay Ajayi – Miami Dolphins
One of last year’s biggest breakout backs hasn’t quite found his groove this year.
A match-up against the second-worst fantasy football defense against his position could change that.
