As I write this I am happy to say that the lockout is over, and the real refs appear to be on their way back for this weekends games.  Great news, now, who to sit and who to start for Week 4

START: QB: Christian Ponder, Min-  The reason for this is two- fold; Ponder had three total touchdowns last week and was able to handle the 49ers with no interceptions thrown, and now he gets to face a defense that gave up 37 points and over 400 yards of offense last week.  You need a bye week filler? Take him and hang on to him.

SIT: QB: Jay Cutler, Chi- Dallas’s defense isn’t giving up much yardage and Cutler certainly hasnt put up much in that department himself recently.  If you don’t have to start him, it may not be a bad week to leave him on your bench.

START: RB: Trent Richardson, Cle- Surprisingly the Ravens defense gives up an average of over 110 rushing yards again.  And for all the fault of the Cleveland offense, it benefits Richardson because is has become the Cleveland offense and as such, he will dominate the workload be it on the ground or on screen passes.  Expect another good game from the rookie.

SIT: RB: All Miami RBs- We don’t know if Reggie Bush is playing, Danny Thomas has been erratic, fragile and not always elusive in his young career and Lamar Miller has shown flashes of brilliance backing up the two so far.  But they take on the suddenly- high powered Cardinals defense this week, which means the offense probably won’t get too much of a rhythm going, and in general, it does not present a good matchup for the young and talented Dolphins backfield.  Pass if you can.

START: WR: Anquan Boldin, Bal- He has become the forgotten man on this team, with only 118 yards through three games, as Dennis Pitta and Torrey Smith’s breakout has cut into his opportunities.  But defenses adjust in this league, and while the Browns secondary isn’t bad, they likely will be overmatched by the Ravens air attack and by Ray Rice.  Start Boldin with confidence and remember, the Ravens have always dominated the Browns in recent years, and it should continue this week.

SIT: WR: Danny Amendola, Stl- He’s had a great start, especially considering he missed most of last year with a season ending injury early in the season with 296 yards and a touchdown in three games, but Seattle’s been playing at a very high level recently, and given the other woes of the Rams (namely their offensive line not protecting Sam Bradford and Stephen Jackson’s health), Amendola’s going to have a tough time keeping his recent production going for this week.

See you on the show
