NFL Fantasy Football Advice for Week 4 (2016)–Who’s Gettin’ It In?
DeSean Jackson, Phillip Rivers, and Jordan Howard will Get It In this weekend.
Our Fantasy Football team crapped the bed this week and we’re not happy about it. We got our backsides handed to us by Team “don’t call me the “Kiss of Death,” Vega during Week 3. But it’s a new week and we’re off to a better start. A.J. Green, our first-round draft pick, went off on Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins. Green amassed 10 receptions for 173 yards and a TD in a 22-7 Cincinnati Bengals victory. In our touchdown league, Green’s big night equals 24 fantasy points. We’ll take it. This week, we will be looking at BroBible ‘s Fantasy Football advice in our latest edition of “Gettin’ It In.” Remember, always wrap it before you tap it.
Fantasy Football Advice for Wide Receivers
Start Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown as your wide receiver number one this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. Brown is almost a given every week, but we’re here to remind you.
DeSean Jackson Against the Cleveland Browns
“The Browns have allowed the most fantasy points to receivers so far this year….” Here are my words of cautions. If you’re in a PPR league, Jackson doesn’t get a lot of targets, but consistently makes a big play. Jackson is a better play in a TD-based fantasy league.
Jaguars Allen Hurns versus the Colts
The Colts secondary and defense have been offensive through four weeks, but Hurns should get on track in this AFC South matchup. The Jags have underperformed on the field and the receiving duo of Hurns and Robinson have burned GM’s who drafted them based on pre-season prognostications. Allens Hurns hasn’t scored a touchdown this season. I hope he remembers what it looks like.
Fantasy Advice at Quarterback
Chargers Philip Rivers versus the Saints
At home against the Saints, a defense that is missing key pieces and even when healthy hasn’t played well in two seasons. Start him and his bolo ties. Also, an extra piece of advice, if you need to pick up a tight end, do the double and start Hunter Henry. On second thought, it’s difficult to trust a guy with two first names.
Joe Flacco versus the Oakland Raiders
“Oakland has given up the most passing yards of any team in the league so far, but people will be quick to point out that Tennessee didn’t get anywhere last week. Flacco has thrown at least 33 passes in each game so far and will air it out again this weekend at home where he’s historically been a strong quarterback.” I don’t like the Ravens’ lack of playmakers. Buyer beware.
Runnings Back Fantasy Advice
We recommend starting Jordan Howard of the Chicago Bears versus the Detroit Lions. Also, a battle in the AFC East between the New England Patriots and any of the three other teams in the division is always ripe for fantasy football success. Start LeGarrette Blount against the Buffalo Bills. We really like the Chargers/Saints matchup this weekend. If he’s available in your league, start Melvin Gordon. We may have a bit of rooting interest in this pick. Gordon is number one running back this week.
