Fantasy Football Week 4 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: D/ST


Start 'em:

Indianapolis Colts @ Chicago Bears

The Colts are the number 1 defense in football for a reason. That reason is that they haven't played a good team yet. Their opponents have a combined one win but I still like them in week 4 at the Bears. Foles is making his first start of the season for the Bears and he is bound to be running a limited offense. If chasing the game, Foles will throw the ball deep and trust his receivers and that could lead to a high scoring game for the Colts defense, a team that leads the league in interceptions with six.

Cleveland Browns @ Dallas Cowboys

The Browns lead the league in total turnovers, and they are up against a Coyboys team that have six giveaways already this season. The Cowboys fumbled the ball four times in the first quarter against the Falcons two week ago and ball security appears to be a real issue. With Myles Garrett leading the defense there could be more fumbles given up by the Cowboys. Everything is set up for the Browns defense to create plenty of turnovers.

Chicago Bears vs Indianapolis Colts

The Bears have not been good through three weeks in terms of fantasy points, but their pass rush is still there and going up against an immobile Phillip Rivers they could have a high scoring game instead of sacks and turnovers. Looking to go 4-0 the Bears defense will continue to give the offense plenty of help and they are a great choice to start this week having three interceptions in as many games.

Sit 'em:


Dallas Cowboys vs Cleveland Browns

The Cowboys defensive struggles continue and if they are to get anything from the game against the Browns, it will be because of their offense and not the defense. The defense are averaging one fantasy point per game and the Browns should be able to put up big numbers on offense.

Philadelphia Eagles @ San Francisco 49ers

With Nick Mullens under center for San Francisco the game plan will be simple: run the football and let the defense win the game. This doesn't bode well for the Eagles defense as opportunities to turn the football over will be scarce and the Niners have no shortage of running back options.
