This NFL season certainly has been competitive. However, it’s confusing as all heck! Entering week 3, the Bills were by far the worst team. A rookie led them into Minnesota to whip Mr. Fully Guaranteed and the Vikings. The Patriots were coming off of a loss in Jacksonville, only to lose to a Lions team that has been horrendous AND is led by their former defensive coordinator. And of course, FitzMagic turned into FitzTragic during the first half of Monday Night Football. A strong finish wasn’t enough, and now the Steelers are tied with the Browns yet again, but this time at 1-1-1.
Now, much of this doesn’t matter for fantasy football, but there was plenty of news that affected our little bubble too. Jimmy G is lost for the season, Le’Veon Bell trade rumors are heating up, and an Alabama receiver is finally scoring touchdowns for the Falcons. Hopefully you’re 3-0 and sitting pretty, but if not, there isn’t a reason to panic yet. Here are some of my favorite add/drop candidates for week 4.
For them to be considered an “add” for me, they have to be owned in less than 60% of ESPN leagues. Many of the drops that follow aren’t must-drops, but we’re at the point in the season where we need to detach the performance from the name, and make evaluations accordingly. Don’t go down in a sinking ship.
