The NFL is back in London for Sunday's Vikings vs. Saints matchup, and New Orleans' injury issues are proving to be quite a headache for fantasy football managers.
Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (back/ankle) and top wide receiver Michael Thomas (foot) have already been ruled out for Sunday, which poses a bit of pickle for fantasy football managers.
Because the game is in London, Vikings vs. Saints will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET, and even earlier in other parts of the country.
So, many fantasy football managers with either Winston or Thomas on the roster will have to make their start/sit decisions very early on Sunday.
Winston should be easy enough to replace by simply hitting the waiver wire and snagging a quarterback to stream in Week 4, but what all of this means for Jarvis Landry and Chris Olave, from a fantasy football perspective, is a bit more complicated.
With the help of the Action Network's updated fantasy football rankings, let's examine where Olave and Landry sit in standard and PPR formats for Week 4.
Chris Olave Fantasy Football Start or Sit?
When it comes to the wide receiver position in Week 4, Olave is clearly the better start according to our rankings.
Even with Winston inactive, Olave checks in at WR27 in standard scoring leagues and even better at WR25 in PPR.
Jarvis Landry Fantasy Football Start or Sit?
It's likely that you can find better options on your bench or via the waiver wire, but if you're desperate, there could be some volume available for Landry due to Thomas' injury.
Landry sits as WR49 in PPR formats, but drops to WR 55 in standard leagues.
