Kirk Cousins v SEA
Last week I said that Cousins was the guy you put in your lineup and you wouldn’t be excited about. Well, that feels to me like it’s changing. This Vikings offense is rolling, and imposing itself onto defenses. The Browns defense is a solid unit, which means he is going to be overlooked in some leagues, but I’m happy to put him in.
Jalen Hurts v KC
I’ll be totally honest, in the offseason I was worried about what Hurts would be this season. Yes, he has the rushing upside, but was yet to prove himself as a passer. In this matchup though, he may have some more success. The Chiefs have really struggled on defense so far this season.
Taylor Heinicke @ATL
Welcome into the segment within the article of ‘who are the Falcons playing?’ This week it’s Washington’s turn, meaning Heinicke is the next man up who you slot into your lineup. The reason is clear, the Falcons are one of the worst against the position. That means plenty of opportunities for Heinicke to put up yards. They even allowed Daniel Jones to throw on them!
Matt Ryan v WAS
Ryan is also a player worth rolling out. The reason is the matchup. Washington are rock bottom against the position. Some of that might be that the team have faced the Chargers and Bills, but they did also face Daniel Jones who looked good. Give Matty Ice another chance.
Daniel Jones @NO
You might not need to read this, but I wanted to just reiterate that you can’t trust Jones. Yes, the past two weeks he hasn’t been bad. But, he now faces a tough defense in the New Orleans Saints. Even in a 2QB league, don’t do it!
Ryan Tannehill @NYJ
Tannehill might hurt me on Sunday after putting him as a sit. And this isn’t a remark on the Jets being a good pass defense. It’s just the Titans won’t need to pass the ball. The rushing defense is awful, and that means Derrick Henry is going to be looking to have a big game. Mix in the fact that A.J. Brown is set to miss the game, and Julio Jones missed some time last week, bench him.
Well that’s it for our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em for Week 4 of the 2021 season. Remember, you can check out rankings for each Week. Reach out on social media, you can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
