Fantasy Football Week 4 Starts of the Week


  • Andy Dalton - You couldn't ask for a better matchup for Dalton. He's facing the Chiefs defense who has give up a league high 10 touchdowns through the first 3 weeks of the season. Dalton has completed 66% of his passes and is averaging 285 yards per game. A.J. Green is healthy so ride this Bengals offense while you can.
  • Carson Palmer - The Arizona Cardinals offense is very good when Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald are healthy and clicking. So far so good in 2015. Palmer has 9 touchdowns through 3 games and Fitzgerald is averaging 111 receiving yards per game with 5 TDs. The Rams defense has allowed 81% of passes to be completed, so Palmer and Fitzgerald might be in line for another huge day.
  • Derek Carr - The Bears are a disaster on both sides of the ball and Carr has gone for over 300 yards in each of the last two games with 5 total touchdowns. 

Running Backs

  • Melvin Gordon - Cleveland has given up a league high 158 yards per game on the ground and Melvin Gordon is hungry to score his first NFL touchdown. He'll still split time with Danny Woodhead but this is the game that Gordon breaks out.
  • Joseph Randle - Randle exploded in the first half last week against the Falcons with 90 yards and 3 TDs but then he only touched the ball 4 times in the second half. The coaching staff won't make that mistake again. Expect Randle to get a ton of carries this week against an awful Saints run defense.
  • Karlos Williams - No LeSean McCoy means big things for Williams against the New York Giants. The Giants only allow 74 yards per game on the ground but Williams will be the lead back with McCoy out and the rookie has scored in all 3 games this year. So far on 24 carries, Williams has totaled 186 rushing yards. Expect 20-25 rushes Sunday with over a 100 yards and a TD.

Wide Receivers

  • James Jones - James Jones went off on Monday Night Football against the Chiefs dreadful pass defense (7 catches, 139 yards and a TD) and could see a ton of passes coming his way again, as Davante Adams will not play.
  • Pierre Garcon - We could see a classic shootout between the Eagles and Redskins this Sunday, which could mean a lot of targets for Pierre Garcon. Garcon has seen at least 7 targets in every game so far, and DeSean Jackson is out at least another week. Besides Jordan Reed, Garcon is really the only other option in the passing game for Kirk Cousins.
  • Allen Robinson - The Jaguars are 9.5 point underdogs against the Colts which means they should be throwing the ball all over the field. Robinson is the real deal and will have plenty of chances to make some plays courtesy of Blake Bortles

Tight Ends

  • Charles Clay - Clay will have a big role in the Bills offense Sunday against the Giants as the Bills will be without LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins. Last week Clay caught 5 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown and now has scored in each of the last two games.
  • Jason Witten - With Brandon Weeden under center, the Cowboys will limit their down the field throws to wide receivers and we saw that last week with 20 of his 26 pass attempts going to Witten and the running backs. The Saints have been torched by Darren Fells and Greg Olsen, so expect Witten to keep up the pace. 

Will Andrew Luck Play on Sunday?
