Best Week 4 Fantasy Football Players by Position
Week 4 Top 3 For Free!
Lamar Jackson – The Ravens are not happy about their performance last Monday Night against the Chiefs. Especially Lamar Jackson, the reigning MVP of the league. Jackson has shown good maturity and will bounce back this week against a Washington team whose defense is getting banged up. Look for him to run and throw for a couple and at least 4 total TDs.
Deshaun Watson – Of course this game could be postponed like the Steelers and Texans but if played, it is Houdini’s week. The Vikings have one of the league’s worst pass defenses. Watson has not been able to have a clean pocket to throw yet this season but Minnesota has not been rushing the passer well either. In a somewhat surprising shootout, Watson is going to cash in big!
Josh Allen – The story is the same every week for this guy. The entire Bills offense runs through him. The Raiders, are terrible on defense. They cannot cover, tackle or stop the run. It will be a nice day for Josh Allen as he continues his strong start.
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Joe Burrow. Jacksonville’s defense has not been good since Week 1 against Indy. Burrow should have a better day avoiding sacks because the Jags are not aggressive and do not generate much pressure with just their front 4. Burrow has obviously been impressive thus far and if he is still in waivers and you need a play, Burrow is the guy.
Alvin Kamara – I am trying to avoid the obvious but the guy is just unstoppable right now. Expect Detroit to key on Kamara and try to make someone else beat them. However Michael Thomas should be back which is perfect timing because it will force Detroit to stay honest.
Ezekiel Elliott– The big game in Big D this week will provide some fireworks but no one will be more valuable than Zeke. The Browns have been doing a good job of pressuring the QB. Myles Garret has to be pumped up to play in his hometown of Dallas and even more excited to see Dallas’ OL is banged up. I believe the game will be back and forth but expect Dallas to feed Zeke with carries as well as passes.
Myles Gaskin – If you have not scooped this guy off waivers yet you better go do it right now! Gaskin has been a sparkplug for the Dolphins offense since Week 1 and he has consistently gotten better. In Week 3 against Jacksonville, Gaskin had 27 touches. Now, with 3 extra days of rest, the struggling Seahawks defense comes to Miami and Gaskin is going to be utilized ton. Especially with Devante Parker dealing with a hamstring issue and not being 100%. Gaskin gets catches and rushes, this week he will finally get in the endzone and make fantasy owners proud!
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Travis Homer. Even if Chris Carson plays, throw Travis Homer in your lineup. This is not as much of a desperation play as you might think. I understand Carlos Hyde could be in for a bigger workload, but Homer has more juice. Homer played at Miami in college so this is also a bit of a homecoming for him.
Bobby Anderson– The Panthers and Cardinals will showdown and shootout this week. The Panthers are feeling good after getting their first win last week and the Cardinals know they need to bounce back after a disappointing performance against Detroit. Anderson will have plenty of opportunities throughout the game but will show his speed more than once with big plays in this game. Take the over, and take Bobby Anderson!
Marvin Jones – The Lions have a home game against New Orleans that is looking great for Marv! Lattimore should be on Golladay most the game and Janoris Jenkins will give up some big plays to Marv. The Lions will not stop throwing in this one being either down or tied most the game.
DeAndre Hopkins – Once again, I get that he is one of the best in the league but that does not mean he cannot keep appearing in the top 3. Nuk is going to break Michael Thomas’ record for catches in a season which he set just last season. He is on pace to do so and he and Kyler just have a chemistry right now that is literally pitch and catch.
Big Risk Big Reward Play: Josh Reynolds. Goff has been putting up some numbers this season. If you have not noticed go take a look but he is also spreading it around. Week 1 it was Bobby Woods. Week 2 Tyler Higbee. Week 3 Cooper kupp. Week 4.. Josh Reynolds.
Jordan Akins – The Texans TEs always seem to pop up with huge games every so often and it is about that time. 2 TDs coming Akins way so do not let him sit in waivers this week!
Zach Ertz – Goedert is down. The Eagles need a win. Desean Jackson is the only WR healthy. Ertz will have a good night in San Fran.
Rob Gronkowski – Brady started to find his buddy some last week. Gronk is going to score this week and do his signature Gronk spike!
Big Risk Big Reward Play – Ryan Izzo. I should change this title to huge risk, but the Patriots and Chiefs game is the game of the week so you might as well play someone while you watch Romo and Nantz make this game exciting in the late afternoon.
Cairo Santos – The Colts defense has been good to start the season. The Bears will move the ball against them but most drives will stall.
Sam Sloman – The Rams are going to handle the Giants with ease so an early FG in the first half and then a couple more in the second half will be icing on the cake.
Jason Myers – The Dolphins are going to play Seattle tough so Pete Carroll will cherish his FG kicker for keeping the game in the Seahawks favor.
Baltimore – They are just going to dominate Washington. End of discussion.
LA Rams – The Giants have not been able to get anything going on offense and the Rams will benefit from that this week. Sacks and turnovers, you name it, it will happen.
Kansas City – Yup! The Chiefs will play aggressive against Cam. Cam has been running the ball well but only put up good passing numbers against Seattle. Expect a pick six sometime in this game and a couple sacks.
