We got shut out last week to fall to 3-6 on the young season. But we’re going to shake it off and push onward and upward to get back on the right track in fantasy football week four. Once again we will be emphasizing the Yahoo and DraftKings daily fantasy games. It’s hard to want to bench these guys in yearly leagues during bye weeks, but nonetheless, these are the players in for goose eggs this week. With that, we begin Sit ’em Down for week four:

QB- Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders at Baltimore Ravens (Yahoo Price- $30, DraftKings Price- $6700)

Last week I picked Blake Bortles to have a dud against the Ravens defense, and he narrowly proved me wrong. But in Baltimore this week, I’m thinking they prove me right against Carr, whose coming off a lackluster statistical showing against Tennessee in week three. The Raiders might be 2-1, but the Ravens are undefeated and the defense has been playing decently as a whole, while giving up the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks through three weeks. At those prices, I just wouldn’t count on Carr to pay off this week.

RB- Matt Forte, New York Jets vs. Seattle Seahawks (Y- $31, DK- $6600)

While Forte was the lone bright spot in the Jets loss against the Chiefs, the Seahawks defense has been good this year (as always), and I expect them to put a heavier emphasis on stopping the run, especially after allowing Carlos Hyde to score two touchdowns last week. He’s nursing a knee injury coming into this week’s game, and I just flat out do not like the matchup for either Forte, or the Jets as a whole. Pass on Forte this week.

WR- Amari Cooper, Oakland at Baltimore (Y- $24, DK- $7600)

Cooper hasn’t scored in double-digits for fantasy points the last two weeks, as Michael Crabtree has eaten into his catch total. Add that into a poor matchup against the Ravens defense, and it spell a bad day for Cooper owners. Especially on DraftKings, this is a good week to not look in Cooper’s direction. Pass on those prices.
