Fantasy football Week 4 is all but behind us, and wow were there some interesting shakeups. Some wide receivers stepped up and a couple more backup quarterbacks became starters. With change being the only constant in fantasy football, we’re here to help. Here are some changes you can make with your Monday Night Football players based on how your roster looks.

Fantasy Football: MNF Lineup Changes (Week 4)

Cincinnati at Pittsburgh

QB: Andy Dalton > Mason Rudolph

RB: Joe Mixon = James Conner > Jaylen Samuels > Giovani Bernard > Benny Snell

WR: JuJu Smith-Schuster > Tyler Boyd > John Ross > James Washington > Diontae Johnson > Auden Tate > Damion Willis > Alex Erickson > Donte Moncrief

TE: Tyler Eifert > C.J. Uzomah > Nick Vannett > Vance McDonald

Other than Smith-Schuster, it could be argued that everyone else in this game is a total and complete wild card. If you’re down big and have a different starter in your flex, then it might make sense to go for the riskier options on the right end of the spectrum. For instance, playing someone like running back Benny Snell could net your team a zero, but if the right injury occurs he could be a beast. James Conner and Jaylen Samuel are likely both owned, so if you have a spot in your flex then Snell might make sense, depending on who you’d be dropping. Players like Auden Tate or Alex Erickson come to mind.

Don’t drop A.J. Green though, at least not yet. Reports came out that he’s going to miss a couple more weeks, but he’s still worth a roster spot in most leagues. If and when he comes back he’ll likely jump right into the WR2 territory, which isn’t something that grows on trees. Yes, it sucks taking that zero on your bench, but it’s better than dumping him for nothing.

Both leading tight ends are equally risky due to injury: McDonald because he’s unlikely to play this week and Eifert because he’s a risk for injury every time he takes the field. Riskier options like Uzomah and Vannett could be played if you’re feeling lucky, but neither are recommended at this point.
