Fantasy Football Starts and Sits in week 4! Carlos Hyde is #1 RB in week 4!

If you read the title than you are probably saying, "what about Le'Veon Bell?"  Well, obviously he is the #1 RB but he can't be listed as the #1 because he hasn't played any games yet due to his three game suspension.  That makes Carlos Hyde the best option for running back in week 4.  Everyone else has pretty tough matchups.  Even fantasy experts are saying to be cautious of starting your best back in week 4 because of the tough defenses they all face.  

In week 1, Hyde carried the ball 22 times for 88 yards and popped in two touchdowns.  In week 2, he carried the ball just 14 times for 34 yards.  He also had three catches for 18 yards and fumbled.  So, week 2 was a week to forget for Hyde owners.  In week 3, he got the ball 22 times and ran for over 100 yards.  He also found the end zone twice. 

Even though the Cowboys have held RB's pretty honest, Hyde is a different breed.  He should be able to get at least 20-25 carries and rush for around 80 yards.  He should also be getting valuable touches in the red zone.  Do you think Hyde is a must start back in week 4?
