Fantasy Football Week 4 Rankings: Position-by-Position Breakdown

I've never fought in a war, but I have been playing fantasy football since we had to clip box scores out of the newspaper with good-old-fashioned scissors. 

We would use a calculator (that was not an app on a smart phone) to add up our fantasy points. Totals would then be sent to league mates via U.S. Mail.

I'm barely into my 30s. That is how far technology has come. It's amazing and funny and scary at the same time.

It means that I am inheriting, via my experiences, nostalgia. A trait I'd previously viewed as reserved for strictly the old and crotchety. 

I have learned this: If fantasy football is a war fought in a series of (hopefully) 16 battles, this week is one in which the enemy generally infiltrates camp between meetings on the battlefield.

Trade proposals are flying in like enemy shrapnel and things are becoming increasingly volatile. Soldiers are being lost to bye weeks, and subsequently, a lottery is being employed to manage the enrollment of their replacements. 

You are, in essence, on high alert. 

Welcome to Week 4.
