NFL Week 4 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Waiver Wire Pickups

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 1st, 2009 | Comment »


1.) Darren McFadden — A bit disappointing through 3 games, but he should have a monster day against the 32nd ranked Texans run defense and overall defense.

2.) Clinton Portis — After being a great fantasy back in 2008, Portis has been struggling.  Start him against the Bucs this week and if he doesn’t get going against this 31st ranked run D, then you know he may not be worth starting for the rest of the year.

3.) Cedric Benson — The Bengals are facing the Browns, so you obviously want to start him.

4.) Tashard Choice — With Barber questionable and now Felix Jones out with an injury, the spotlight is solely on him.  He’s proven he can catch out of the backfield, which Romo likes to do frequently if his receivers are covered.

5.) Willie Parker — Time for Wast Willie Parker to get going against a Chargers defense that has been spotty against the run.

6.) Justin Gage — A matchup against the 32nd ranked passing D should give the Titans a W and pad his stat sheet.

7.) Earl Bennett/Devin Hester/Johnny Knox — I like any receiver playing the Lions so all these Bears WRs are a go.

8.) Mike Sims-Walker — The Titans have been awful against the pass and Garrard is giving Sim-Walker a lot of looks.

9.) Brandon Marshall — Marshall is back to producing and he was up against lock-down CB Awesome-ungha [sic] last week.  Against a shoddy Cowboys pass D, this should be his big breakout game.  I’m thinking triple-digit yardage.

10.) Lee Evans — A bit dissappointing so far, but he’s probably your #3 guy.  The Dolphins struggle against the pass, so this could be the game that Lee Evans finally produces.

11.) Jericho Cotchery — He’s been a great fantasy snag this year.  With the Jets against the Saints, he should continue putting up the big numbers.


1.) Frank Gore — He’ll be missing the next two games.  You may want to pick up Glen Coffee this week to exploit the Rams defense.

2.) Fred Taylor — He had a big game last week, but I don’t count on a repeat performance against the Ravens tough run defense.

3.) Fred Jackson — Not only is Marshawn Lynch back from a suspension, but he’ll be facing Miami’s tough run defense.  Look for a better matchup.

4.) Pierre Thomas — He had a monster game against the Bills, but I wouldn’t count him doing the same against a tough Jets defense.  However, if the Saints get stopped on the 1, Thomas should be getting those goal line carries.  I just expect the Saints to commit to the pass against the Jets before trying to establish the run.

5.) Dwayne Bowe — Coming off an injury against the best pass defense makes him a candidate to bench if you have a better matchup.  I doubt he’ll see the endzone much against the Giants.


1.) Glen Coffee (SF – RB) — With Gore out, all signs point to go in week 5 against the Rams that allow an average of 400 yards of offense per game.

2.) Andre Caldwell (CIN – WR) — He’s developing a great rapport with Carson Palmer and has a favorable matchup with the Browns.   If you’re thin at WR or in a deep league, he could give you team a nice boost this week.

3.) Shaun Hill (SF – QB) — If you’re like me, who drafted McNabb and Hasselbeck, you are scrambling to find a QB and Shaun Hill might be available who is luckily facing the Rams this week.

4.) Johnny Knox (CHI – WR) — I picked him up a while ago and somebody probably did the same as well.  With the Bears playing the Lions at home, Knox is poised for another big game.
