Fantasy Football Update 9/28/16: Week 4 Start / Sit Picks
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy This Week
September 28, 2016
It’s Wednesday, and not only does that mean the NFL will be returning with Week 4 tomorrow, but it’s also time for our weekly Start-Sit list in the world of fantasy football. We’ve got the usual lineup ready for you today, so let’s check out some of the notable names you might be on the fence about this week.
USA TODAY Sports
Terrelle Pryor, WR, Cleveland Browns: Pryor was all over the place last week as the Browns tried their best to get him involved in the offense. He bagged eight receptions for 144 yards and also served as an RB and QB.
Pryor will remain the lynchpin of the Cleveland offense, at least for this week (the last before Josh Gordon returns) against Washington—who has been very nice to opposing WRs this year.
Orleans Darkwa, RB, New York Giants: Darkwa burst onto the scene last week, when he rushed 10 times for 53 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins. Prior to that, he’d only managed 0.2 fantasy points in two weeks.
With the Giants backfield beat up (Shane Vereen is out for the year; Rashad Jennings is nursing a thumb injury) it could be time for Darkwa to step up this weekend.
Trevor Siemian, QB, Denver Broncos: We didn’t pay much attention to Siemian in his first two weeks, but after his 312-yard, four-TD performance against Cincinnati, he’s got our attention now.
Siemian has a great matchup this weekend against the Buccaneers, and he could be due for some more big numbers in Week 4.
Latavius Murray, RB, Oakland Raiders: Even though Murray has been good for touchdowns this year, owners have to wonder if his usage will continue to trend in the wrong direction. If things continue to play out, Murray will cede snaps to DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. Not to mention the three of them have a rough gig against Baltimore this week.
Frank Gore, RB, Indianapolis Colts: Gore is another guy who has been pretty good to owners, and has been reliable thanks to his large workload. That said, the’s facing his Achilles heel in the Jaguars this weekend.
Last year (two games), the Jaguars held Gore to 113 yards and no scores on 33 carries.
Brandon Marshall, WR, New York Jets: Marshall got quite a bit of work in Week 3 despite his foot injury, but couldn’t do much with it (three catches; 27 yards). This week won’t be any different.
Marshall and the Jets draw a tough matchup against the Seahawks, and Seattle will put their top corner on him all day. We’re not expecting much from Marshall, Decker or Forte this week.
