Every week, The Fantasy Footballers ask followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, who fantasy football owners are having the toughest Sit/Start decisions on. Get assistance with The Fantasy Footballers Sit/Start tool — based on Andy, Jason, and Mike‘s weekly rankings. Here are the three of the most popular requests for Week 4:

Kerryon Johnson or Matt Breida?

RB Kerryon Johnson
Detroit Lions @ Dallas Cowboys
Consensus: 20 / Andy: 19 / Jason: 19 / Mike: 20

RB Matt Breida
San Fransisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Chargers
Consensus: 21 / Andy: 21 / Jason: 21 / Mike: 21

The most important thing here is that Breida is a gametime decision (knee), and that game doesn’t start until 4:25pm ET. Kerryon plays at 1:00pm ET, and so it’s a full sweep on the Sit/Start tool. Kerryon had 16 carries for 101 yards against the Pats in Week 3. He became the first Lions RB to top 100 rushing yards since 2013. Unless you have a great backup option that plays 4:25pm or later, roll with Kerryon in the early game.


 Alex Collins or Sony Michel?

RB Alex Collins
Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Consensus: 16 / Andy: 17 / Jason: 16 / Mike: 17

RB Sony Michel
New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins
Consensus: 17 / Andy: 16 / Jason: 20 / Mike: 18

Sit/Start tool shows that Andy is the only one who would go with Sony Michel over Alex Collins. However, if you look closely at the rankings, Sony Michel is only one spot ahead of Collins for Andy, while Mike only has Collins one spot ahead of Michel. It’s always a big if with the Patriots, but if Sony can get a solid workload and/or goalline work, he has upside. The Ravens have seemingly wanted to interchange Alex Collins and Javorius Allen.

Kenyan Drake or Sony Michel?

RB Kenyan Drake
Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots
Consensus: 17 / Andy: 18 / Jason: 17 / Mike: 19

RB Sony Michel
New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins
Consensus: 17 / Andy: 16 / Jason: 20 / Mike: 18

RB Battle from the same game! Drake and Michel actually average out to a tie in the consensus rankings. Jason is sticking with Drake, while Jason and Mike lean Sony Michel. Can Kenyan Drake get on track against a Patriots defense allowing 21.9 points a game to RBs? As mentioned earlier, the upside could be big for Sony Michel, or James White is a real nuisance to Sony’s fantasy value. Drake was Andy’s “Under Pressure” pick from Friday’s show.
