The NFL is back for Week 4 of the 2020 regular season, and kickoff is fast approaching for Sunday’s 12-game slate. We have a shortened Sunday because of Covid-19. The Titans-Steelers matchup has been moved to Week 7 and Patriots-Chiefs is expected to happen on Monday evening if no additional positive tests come in.
The week got started with an unexpectedly entertaining Broncos-Jets game. It was not a huge fantasy game, but it had its share of players impacting early roster decisions. Now, we’re back for Sunday’s slate. We’ve got eight games at 1 p.m., highlighted by the Saints traveling to face the Lions. That’s followed by three games in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. slot, highlighted by the unbeaten Bears hosting the 2-1 Colts and the 2-1 Raiders hosting the unbeaten Bills. We wrap with Sunday Night Football featuring the 49ers hosting the Eagles in a matchup of teams dealing with a host of injuries.
We’re into the fourth week of the regular season, and we have some significant injury questions to sort out. DeAndre Hopkins, Kareem Hunt, Terry McLaurin, and Chris Carson are among the most significant in the early slate. All four are expected to play, but we await official confirmation with inactive news. The biggest inactive news though relates to Monday Night Football. Davante Adams, Calvin Ridley, and Julio Jones are all questionable for that one.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on pertinent players and figuring out last minute roster decisions. That means not only who is not playing this week, but who is playing but might not be the best start in your Week 4 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
