Week 4 Starts of the Week

Week 4 Starts of the Week

Coming into week 4 there are question marks all over the league. We have some players highlighted below that you may already be starting to lose confidence in, who we think are on their way to getting things straightened out this week.

Q.B. - Russell Wilson (DEN)

Russ has not been cooking so far this season. Just three games in, the talk is about Russ not having it anymore, being so odd that his teammates don't respect him, and how he might not be the answer in Denver. I think a new coach and Q.B. with no experience together are just taking some time to gel. The Raiders give up the 4th most points to the Q.B. position so far this year. In division, this is a huge game, and I expect Russ to knock the rust off in this one.

RB - Austin Ekeler (LAC)

Ekeler has been off to a terrible start to the season efficiency-wise; there's no denying that. This week he gets a matchup with a Houston Texans defense that is allowing the 2nd most fantasy points to the position in the league and 160 rushing yards per game. Herbert is still on the mend from a rib issue, and Keenan Allen is missing again. This should create a perfect storm for Ekeler to get going on the ground and through the air.

WR - Chris Olave (NO)

Olave is off to a great start in his career. With concerns over Jameis Winston's availability for week 4, Olave owners might be on the fence. Andy Dalton is the backup and would start this game if Jameis can't go. This could even be better for Olave. With Thomas out, he is the #1 weapon on the outside. The Red Rifle targeted A.J. Green 9.2 times per game from 2011-2018. Olave gets an easy opponent in Minnesota and should be a great play this week.

TE - T.J. Hockenson (DET)

The Detroit Lions are fighting the injury bug big time this week. Amon-Ra St. Brown and DeAndre Swift are both out, and D.J. Chark is questionable with an injury. Hockenson will be in for a significant workload in week 4, and opportunity is king in fantasy football, especially at a weak tight-end position.
