Who to start and who to sit? That’s the question that plagues everyone who plays fantasy football on a weekly basis?
Honestly, it’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in this crazy game of fantasy. Will you get it right all the time? No, because football will surprise, especially if you buy into the adage: On any given Sunday, any team can beat any other team. We’re here to help you work through those decisions.
Here are the Week 4 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit.
Wide receivers are becoming the root of any successful fantasy teams and points per reception (PPR) has become more of the norm. Some receivers have a nose for the end zone, others do not. The position can be subdivided into elite receivers who can do it all, high target/reception slot receivers, some can rush the ball and some who return kicks.
Regardless of where your receivers get categorized, the bottom line is, can they beat their coverage? Here are a few that do not match up well.
Mecole Hardman, Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles’ pass defense is going unnoticed because everyone is fixated on their offense. But they’ve effectively taken receivers like CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Calvin Ridley and Deebo Samuel out of games. They let them catch a few passes, but most are harmless in the long run, even when they’re getting blown out, they’re not getting beat badly by opposing receivers (tight ends are a different story).
Hardman owners will want to carry the momentum of him scoring his first touchdown since January 24. It was on a jet sweep though and most of the passes Hardman has caught have been insignificant. There’s also the looming effect of what Josh Gordon will bring to the Chiefs. He wouldn’t have been brought in if they thought they were well equipped. Since most of the passes go to Travis Kelce or Tyreek Hill, Hardman has failed to step up.
