HOUSTON, TX - SEPTEMBER 10: Leonard Fournette /

It’s still early in the season but we are getting close to crunch time for some fantasy football leagues. Here are a few players for Week 4 that must be in your starting lineup.

Things are starting to really heat up in many fantasy football leagues. There are already a few teams out there that are in must-win situations. Below are several players who should help you earn a victory this week.

Leonard Fournette vs. New York Jets

The New York Jets defense are allowing the 6th most rushing yards per game at 133 yards. However, that number is a little tricky because they only allowed 21 yards against a banged up Baltimore Ravens team in London.

Look for Leonard Fournette to have a big day. He’s still the focal point of the Jacksonville Jaguars offense.

Cincinnati Bengals Defense vs. Cleveland Browns

The Cincinnati Bengals defense is generating a ton of pressure on the quarterback. This type of pressure is something that has caused issues for DeShone Kizer. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise as most rookie quarterbacks have issues with a strong pass rush.

Kizer has also been turnover prone in the early going which is something that plays into starting the Bengals defense.

If your league gives points for return yardage or touchdowns the Bengals can help in this area as well. Alex Erickson has done a great job so far this season. He’s a legitmate threat to score on every return.

Larry Fitzgerald vs. San Francisco 49ers

The Arizona Cardinals have been heavily leaning on Larry Fitzgerald to keep their head above water. He continues to be the team’s top offensive weapon and most reliable receiver. Carson Palmer has been peppering him with targets which should continue against the San Francisco 49ers.

Tarik Cohen vs. Green Bay Packers

The Chicago Bears don’t have many explosive offensive weapons which is why we see Tarik Cohen heavily involved in the offense. Cohen is a multi-dimensional weapon who see just as much action in the run and passing attack.

He will continue to be a major part of the offensive attack. His potential to contribute in the running game should increase as the Bears offensive gets back to full health.
