START EM’- ATL QB Matt Ryan; Matt Ryan had a ball in lasts week lost vs the New Orlean Saints. Ryan threw for 354 yards on 26/35 5 TD with no picks. This week Ryan is up against a Bengals defense that's allowed multiple TD’s from multiple QB’s in each week this season. Bengals also allowed 300+ yards in two of the three games this season. Ryan found his rhythm after starting off the season slow, I see him continuing in week 4 with a great outing.     

SIT EM’- JAX QB Blake Bortles; Last week Bortles had a bad outing in lost vs Tennessee Titans. Bortles was shut out of a touchdown only throwing 155 yards on 21/34 no TD and no INT. This week Jacksonville is up against a top 5 defense against the pass with only allowing a hair over 200 yards with 205. Jets have 5 INT and 8 sacks on the season. Bortles will get pressure and make mistakes this week. Sit em’.     

SLEEPER- CLE QB Baker Mayfield; The Browns have their best record in years with 1-1-1. Early this week Mayfield was name starter this week against the 0-3 Raiders. Baker led the Browns in a comeback win with 201 yards 17/23 and a receiving TD on a trick play. 200 yards in his debut in one half imagine a full game against a lazy Raiders defense. Raiders are 0-3 for a reason allowing 374.3 yards per game 27 points per game. Raiders need to keep their eyes on the prize because I do see trick plays and the Browns take advantage of the absent of Khalil Mack.

START EM’- DAL RB Ezekiel Elliott; The Cowboys are 7th in the league with 132 yards  per game. Zek is averaging almost 5 yards per carry and 91 yards per game. With those stats and the Lions are dead last in run defense. The Cowboys are somewhat of a train wreck this season but if the run is established and Dak don’t throw picks I can see the Cowboys taking a dub this week.

 SIT EM’- PHI RB Jay Ajayi; Ajayi is questionable for Sunday contest against the Titans. Without playing last week and Corey Clements leading the Eagles in rushing with 112 yards, Ajayi isn’t a great option and more of a risk then a start.

 SLEEPER- CIN RB Giovani Bernard; Bernard should see most of the workload due to the second week without Joe Mixon. With only averaging 61 yards on the ground I see Bernard not just rushing for 80+, he will also contribute through the air because the Falcons allow 167 all purpose yards to running backs per game. Bernard should have a great fantasy outing.

START EM”- LAC WR Mike Williams; Williams had a ball game last week's lost against the Los Angeles Rams. He had 7 reception 81 yards and 2 TD, a fantasy owners dream stats. Williams is showing strides of a WR1 role this season so far. Stepping up as go to option for Rivers, Williams is a start against a 49ers defense allowing 287 yards per game. Rivers is gonna have a game including Williams catching a TD or two.

 SIT EM’- DET WR’s; The Detroit Lions wideouts are all averaging great games per game but the Cowboys been allowing less than 200 yards per game with 182. With the Cowboys having no INT this season I can see them picking off Stafford twice and stopping the Lions enough for fantasy owners to sit Lions WR.

SLEEPER- MIA WR Kenny Stills; Dolphins are undefeated this season for the first time since 2002 two games above the Pats. Even with the return of wideout DeVante Parker, coming off a finger injury, Still have a upside for big play potential against division rival Pats. I see the Dolphins moving 4-0 leading the AFC East.

START EM’- SEA DEF; Seattle's defense is the top team with INT with 7 this season. Against an Arizona offense that don’t produce much the Seahawks should have a playdate with them. The Cardinals are also starting rookie QB Josh Rosen for the first time in his young career. Rosen threw his first pick last week on 7 attempts. Rosen will struggle again this week.   

SIT EM’-  ATL DEF; Atlanta is up against the Bengals that average 366 yards per game. Andy Dalton threw 4 picks last game but I see a bounce back game throwing for 300+ 3TD amd no 0 INT.  Bengals will establish the run and pass giving the Falcons a bad outing.

SLEEPER- CLE DEF; The Browns are up against a offense with Derek Carr and BEAST MODE. You would think with that combo the Raider would not be 0-3. Raiders been struggling both on offense and defense so the Browns will take advantage not just getting win but a good outing fantasy wise.

Listener Questions:

Questions- Whos a better start James Conner or David Johnson?

Trade; Todd Gurley + Broncos D for Kamara + Bears D?

I had Jimmy G whos a good pick up season long wise?

Julian Edelman still worth having on the roster?
