The NFL season is approaching its fourth week, and it is starting to become clear which players are for real and which ones might under-perform all year. It is a crucial time for fantasy owners to begin pruning their rosters to form the teams they want for the rest of the season.

Knowing who to add and drop, and who to put on the bench and who to start each week, is the difference between winning and losing. Here is some help for both in the Fantasy Football Week 4 Last Minute Tips.

Week 4 Players to Start

Rex Grossman

Grossman has come out this season and proven why he deserves to be the starter in D.C. He has 846 yards and five touchdowns while leading the ‘Skins to a 2-1 record, which could easily be 3-0.

This week Grossman and the Redskins go up against a very disappointing St. Louis team that is 0-3, with all of their losses being by double digits. Rex should be able to throw for a minimum of two touchdowns, and the ‘Skins will most likely improve to a 3-1 record.

Mark Ingram

Ingram was finally able to get his first touchdown of the season last week, so there is no reason why he will not carry that momentum into Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. The Jags’ defense has not been terrible all year, but they have failed to do anything spectacular that would change my views.

Ingram will get the ball in the redzone, and should be able to continue his brand new touchdown streak.

Mike Williams

Williams is the top receiver on the Bucs, and he will definitely see the ball this Monday. The Bucs are going up against the Curtis Painter-led Colts, who get to be on primetime for the second week in a row. Williams has been limited due to double teams always being placed on him, but a player like Kellen Winslow is able to distract defenders from Williams. Josh Freeman and the Bucs will be 3-1 after this week, unless Curtis Painter and his lovely golden locks pull a miracle, and Mike Williams will have a lot to do with that.

Players to Sit

Michael Vick

Vick is trying to be Superman, but his injuries will be too much this week. He has a contusion on his non-throwing hand, which will certainly affect how he takes snaps and functions with the ball. The Eagles are not playing a tough opponent in the 49ers, but Vick will have trouble dealing with his injuries.

Felix Jones

Jones is already on the injury list due to a hurt shoulder, but he is expected to play on Sunday against the Lions. The Lions are 3-0 and have a certain Mr. Suh who anchors their defensive line. The Cowboys will try to run the ball early to try and take the stress off of the hurt Tony Romo, but they will have little success.

Roddy White

White and the Falcons are going up against a weak team in Seattle, but White has had problems with dropping passes this season. He has dropped several passes that are easy for any player of NFL caliber to catch, and this problem usually lasts a whole season. It happened with Braylon Edwards in Cleveland, and the result was less passes in his direction. I think White will fix the drop problem eventually, but just not this week.
