Fantasy Football Start & Sit for Week 4: Andy Dalton & Alfred Morris

fantasy football start sit week 4 andy dalton nfl 2015The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens kickoff Week 4 in the NFL Thursday, which means it’s that time that we all forget about again: time to set those fantasy lineups!

I forgot to set one of my leagues this past week, so Steve Smith Sr. sat on my bench while the rest of my team limped to a disappointing loss with only 80 points. I set my lineup in my main league, however, and one Smith Sr. and A.J. Green showdown later I finished with a league-high 188 points.

Yes, I know you don’t care at all. I’m just trying to show that setting your lineup is important. So go do it. Here’s a little help for Week 4:

Get out there! Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals: I know, I can’t believe I’m saying this either. I’m one of Dalton’s biggest critics, and even I can’t deny that he looks like a completely revitalized player so far this season. In fact, Dalton is the No. 3 ranked quarterback in fantasy right now.

Let’s hope I don’t jinx anything by insisting that you start the red head this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dalton likely wasn’t a high pick in your draft, so you should be able to trade for him if you don’t have him. Dalton finished with 36 fantasy points last week against the Ravens, with no outing lower than 22 points so far this season, so he could be the quick-fix to the quarterback problem a lot of people are having due to injuries.

The Chiefs defense has allowed eight touchdowns over the past two weeks to Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers, and with A.J. Green playing extremely well and Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones contributing more than usual, Dalton should have no problem continuing the abuse of Andy Reid’s defense.

Get outta here! Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins: Morris may still be listed at the top of the depth chart, and Redskins’ head coach Jay Gruden may still insist that Morris is the man in Washington, but that’s simply not looking to be the case anymore. Morris only played about 15 percent of the Week 3 snaps against the New York Giants, with Matt Jones and Chris Thompson handling the majority of the carries.

Jones’ goal line fumble may give a few of those touches back to Morris; however, the Philadelphia Eagles have yet to allow a rushing touchdown this season, so things still aren’t looking overly positive for Morris in the backfield.

Probably best to just keep a safe distance for now.
