Welcome to Week 4 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.
Three weeks are now in the books as we are now fleshing out a real sample of what we have on a team basis and player basis.
While approaching the end of the first month of the season, the year is still fresh. Big games and opponent influence still carry a lot of weight into overall statistics, but we are getting there. As always, the more information we acquire, the most robust our evidence-based approach can be.
We are still two weeks away from any byes, so we have another full week ahead in Week 4.
We also have our first game in London this weekend, so make sure to account for all of the lineup transactions and injury reports that come with an early kickoff on Sunday morning.
This article will be updated throughout the week to reflect major news or injury implications. I encourage you to use the game-by-game tables and data points here in conjunction with the player rankings that will be available every week this season each Wednesday and enjoy the games.
