It’s Week 4 and it’s hard to believe that, come Tuesday, we’ll be a quarter of the way through the season. But, glass half full, we’ve got so many games to look forward to. The season’s only just warming up and it’s Wembley week. By the way, 5thDownUK will be there and we’ll bring you photos from the event.
Back to the serious business of fantasy football. The pressure’s on me to halt a two-game losing streak that’s halted my season. I’ve got players coming back from injuries and guys going out on a bye. Oh to be a coach. Who do I bench? Who gets the nod?
On Tuesday I was starting Brees, by Wednesday it was Rivers. The Chargers QB was benched again by Thursday, but he’s now back in the line-up. There’s no going back. I expect him to be one of the standout performers in Week 4 against the Jags. But Brees is up against the Cowboys D. Rivers has home field advantage while Drew and his Saints don’t travel well. Rivers it is then.
Vernon Davis is back and Jamaal Charles has looked good in practice. The Chiefs rusher has failed to impress me so far this year and I fancy LeGarrette Blount to clock up a few yards against a weak Buccaneers team. I think the Steelers man gets the nod alongside Chris Johnson.
At least the bye week has picked my wideouts for me, although I’m not filled with confidence going into the weekend.
Apparently lightning doesn’t strike twice, but the last two weeks I’ve seen guys on my bench scoring more points than my starters. It’s no surprise that I’m on this streak. The decisions I make in the next 20hrs or so might well define my season. And these coaches think they’ve got it tough!
