MAN UP/STEP ASIDE WEEK 4
For all you unfortunate souls that had to go up against a trio, or duo of any of the Ram/Vikings receivers, I’ll be sure to say a prayer for you. If you had to feel the wrath of Jared Goff, well you likely have an uphill battle to climb headed into week 4, and that’s exactly why I’m here.
Fantasy with David Johnson have been panicking lately, and likely they haven’t found themselves on the winning end. With Josh Rosen stepping in at quarter back there’s a new vibe going on in Arizona, and a fresh start is exactly with the Cards need, along with this RB 1 to get him going.
Don’t worry about A.J. Green taking away snaps here, the Bengals have been a really good team this season. Maybe not record wise, but they’ve shown that there’s no problems moving the ball. If Green is still sore from his hard fall, Boyd should have another big game.
Get as many Bengals, Falcons players in your line up, this is going to be a fun one. While Mixon has been sidelined with a knee injury, Bernard has been very productive from the line, and catching balls on the go. Gio also finished as a top 10 fantasy back last week, so expect the same this week.
The Packers are out to redeem themselves after a rough start lately. Rogers knee is still injured, so if he can’t roll out from the pocket, or be as mobile as he would like to be, Jimmy G baby, will be his safety blanket. Also lets see if the Bills defense can stop a hot Packers offense.
It’s weird having conversations about if we should bench Luck, or should drop him for another player. You gotta do what you gotta do to win, so that’s understood, but last week he had to go up against a tough Philly offense, this week Luck is back at home, and while the Texans defense have been good, this is an excellent bounce back game for Luck.
You want a sleeper? Here’s a sleeper. Callaway saw ten targets in the Browns last win, ten! Look for Baker to target this young receiver some more, it probably wont be double-digit targets, but Callaway is a flex with great upside.
So we’ve already come to known that no matter how good opposing quarterbacks are, temper expectations if they’re going up against a good Rams defense. This week Rivers has a nice matchup against a banged up 49ers team, so 20 plus points here, is pretty much a given.
Ahh, remember when we were hyping up Goodwin as a receiver who would shock a lot of people this season? Yeah will I clearly remember, and now I’m stuck with him in many leagues, and I don’t know if I should cry, or thrown in the towel. Goodwin will still have great moments, but I’m benching him this week to see how his target share will be with Beathard in.
Just like Luck, some fantasy owners are left wondering what to do with Wentz on a week-to-week basis. You continue to hold on to him, but on the road against a tough Titans defense will have me looking for another quarterback, with a better match up.
I think too many people are just expecting the Cowboys to roll over and die here. The defense has been really good, and its a road game for the Lions. Stafford could end up having a long day in big D, so it’ll be an interesting matchup.
Crowell has had some solid games this season, but the Jags defense are pretty excited to welcome in Darnold to the NFL by giving him a hard time. Likely this game will probably be another low scoring game anyways, but it’s hard trusting Crowell here.
Don’t go chasing the points here. Dallas is an excellent stash on your bench, but Zach Ertz is the producing TE you want in Philly. Too early to tell what kind of role Goedert will have right now.
This should finally be the week that we see Gordon in a Patriots uniform. Will he suit up, is to be determined, but even if Gordon is active its hard to trust him, without knowing how much of an impact he’ll have immediately.
The veteran has been healthy and killing opposing defenders early on, but the Bears are at home, on their defense is scary. I love me some DeSean, just not this week on the road, where we don’t know how Fitz will perform under a lot pressure to keep his job.
