Monday 22nd May 2017

NFL Week 4 gives us the first in the annual series of bye weeks. This one takes an additional bite out of the already thinned out crop of fantasy running backs. We lose Denver (Montee Ball), Seattle (Marshawn Lynch), Cincinnati (Giovani Bernard), St. Louis (Zac Stacy), Arizona (Andre Ellington) and Cleveland (Terrance West). Add in the losses of Danny Woodhead, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert and we get to a point where many fantasy owners will be forced to use the likes of Toby Gerhart and Shonn Greene in 12-team leagues. Several possible returns this week include Jamaal Charles, Bernard Pierce and Doug Martin. Although the way the replacements for Pierce and Martin performed, it would not be a huge surprise to see them return to a lesser role.

At RB if you have the room or are truly desperate Darrin Reaves, CAR is a great pickup with DWill the only other healthy back (and he is coming back off injury) and both Stewart and Tolbert will be OUT for several weeks.

On DST - while the Chargers haven't really scored much look at their schedule starting with JAGS this week then > NYJ, @OAK. They were an outstanding pickup last week.
