Week 4 Fantasy Football Start Em Sit Em: 5 Fantasy Studs You Must Play
Fantasy football Week 4 is here and it's time to make some trades, pick up players on the waiver wires, and do whatever you can to turn things around.

Tom Brady had one of the worst games of his career last Sunday against the Bills. His five interceptions was unheard of for him. He has only thrown four or more interceptions in six games in his entire career.
What does a gamer like Tom Brady do after a terrible start like that? He proves why he is an elite quarterback.
Brady has passed for an 1,327 yards in three games and 11 touchdowns. There is no better fantasy player.
Trade anything you can spare and more if there is a chance of landing Brady before he runs out against Oakland.

All right, yes, he is no Peyton Manning. But he has two things going for him right now that Peyton does not.
The first is a clean bill of health. Eli will be taking every snap come Sunday.
The second is two of his best receivers returning to the field this week.
Yes, that is right, Eli Manning will have Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham to throw the ball to this weekend.
What does that mean for you? It means higher pass totals, higher passer rating and more completions.

Dustin Keller is one of the best tight ends in the league and he is one of the biggest pieces in the Jets' offense.
Keller provides great outlets for Mark Sanchez.
Dustin Keller is currently averaging more then 80 yards each week so far in the season. That, teamed up with the fact that he has caught touchdowns in two of his first three games, makes him a player that is an absolute must start.
Keller is going to put up outstanding fantasy numbers against Baltimore this week because Sanchez will need the quick high percentage options, and the routes Keller will be running will provide just that.

The Houston Texans' running back has been battling some bumps and bruises early on in the season.
This has meant limited touches and a workload that was considerably less than many fantasy owners have expected.
What does this mean for you if you do not have him? This means convince the person that does that this is a trend that is going to continue and offer him a fair trade to pry him away.
Yes, lying to him will work here.
Arian Foster is returning as the every-down back this week and this means one thing: He is going to be a hot commodity for the rest of the season.
Foster's production will be a game-changer for your fantasy team and you will count on him to get the points the rest of your team cannot.

Hakeem Nicks is another player returning from injury.
Nicks is taking the field and he is the No. 1 receiver for the Giants. Expect him to catch at least one touch down in this weekend's matchup.
Oh, and it must be said he is going up against the Arizona Cardinals' secondary, who appear like they cannot stop anybody.
Nicks does have a bit of inflammation near his knee, and is the information that you will need to bargain away Nicks from any of your competitors.
Not to worry, though, as he will be on the field come Sunday and he will put up numbers that will make you happy you took the chance on him.
