Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 4: Jeremy Hill a must-start vs. Dolphins

Though Jeremy Hill got off to a slow start this season, he is absolutely someone you should start vs. the Dolphins in Week 4.

Jeremy Hill looks primed for a big game on Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins.

Though the Cincinnati Bengals have struggled to run the ball this year, Hill is coming off his best game of the season. Against the Denver Broncos in Week 3, Hill rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns on just 17 carries. He now faces a Dolphins defense among the NFL's worst at stopping the run.

Miami has the 31st-ranked rushing defense, and they have allowed 330 rushing yards over the past two games. The most recent was a 169-yard effort by the woeful Cleveland Browns, so one would think Cincinnati should have little issue running against this defense.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! has Hill as the 12th-ranked running back for Week 4. He should do plenty of damage against the Dolphins on Thursday, and while his first two games were duds, his Week 3 performance showed he is still capable of being an RB1 if the matchup is right.

That will be the case Thursday, making Hill a must-start in fantasy football this week.
