With three weeks of the NFL season already in the rear-view mirror, in-season trends are starting to form and data is becoming more actionable.

It might be tough to bench some of the guys you drafted in the earlier rounds, but sometimes it has to happen. In the words of Bruce Lee, “be water.”

Let's get to it: the Week 4 edition of fantasy football start ’em or sit ’em.

The Week 4 iteration of Sunday Night Football promises to be quite the affair, as the New England Patriots are set to battle against the returning Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under the bright lights of Gillette Stadium. Naturally, this leaves Mac Jones in a big spot.

The Patriots rookie quarterback has played well so far, as his 70.3 passing grade ranks 21st league-wide and towers over any other rookie this season. The Alabama product has thrown for 270 or more passing yards and a touchdown twice this season already and looks to clear that benchmark a third time against the Buccaneers this week.

The Buccaneers have allowed an average of 349 passing yards per game through three weeks, though they have played against three above-average quarterbacks. Still, this game sits at a point total of 49, and the Patriots will be in a pass-heavy game script as Brady leans in to dominate Bill Belichick’s team on their own turf.
