Hey guys sorry about not having an article for Week 3 had to make sure I got my homework done since I was at the Eagles game on Sunday. Here are some sleepers for week 4. With the Panthers and Redskins on a bye week you might be in need of a streamer.
I am seeing hype around Ryan Tannehill, but I am not a believer yet. Some QB’s I see available in my leagues that are obvious pick ups are Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen, and Blake Bortles. However, the QB I will be writing up is Case Keenum.
Case Keenum- In 4 point TD leagues Keenum has had one bad week so far and that was Week 3 against the Ravens. He had over 15 fantasy points in week 2 without throwing a TD, and with throwing 1 interception, he should definitely improve on that this week. However, if you look at his schedule he has favorable matchups vs the Chiefs twice, Cardinals once, Texans once, 49ers once, Raiders twice, and a few others that he could do decent. All of these teams have bad pass defenses, and Keenum would definitely be a great fill in. If your QB has a bye week this week or coming up I would definitely give Keenum a hard look.
There are not many RB’s I am that high on this week other than Chris Carson, Kerryon Johnson, and Bilal Powell, but a sneaky ppr pickup is Kyle Juszczyk.
Kyle Juszczyk- Kyle Juszczyk is a full back, yes those still exist, but the 49ers have raved about his athleticism and have even lined him up at wide receiver. Through 3 games Juszczyk has 6 catches on 10 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown. 7 of his targets and 103 of his yards have come when his team is behind, and they should be playing from behind a good bit with Jimmy G going down for the season. Matt Breida and Alfred Morris both carry questionable tags into week 4 against the Chargers so Juzczyk might get some more snaps and may even get a few rushing attempts.
In Week 3 we saw the resurgence of Jordy Nelson, Calvin Ridley solidifying himself as a legit threat, Tyler Boyd showing the NFL he could be a solid number 2 for the Bengals, and Geronimo Allison showing off his wheels once again. If they are available I would pick them up. I also think is a good time to buy low on Chris Hogan. Julian Edelman comes back in week 5 and Josh Gordon could play week 4 this will just help Hogan because it won’t just be him and Gronk as the threats in this Patriots offense.
Piere Garcon- Garcon has been targeted 14 times this season, but he only has 7 catches for 89 yards to show for it. With CJ Beathard taking over I like Garcon to bounce back in a big way getting a lot of short catches that he takes for first downs. In two full games last season with Beathard Garcon had 10 catches for 104 yards. In ppr I will take the 10.2 points a game on average from a player like this, with the occasional TD to give him more points. Obviously we will need to see how the 49ers offense looks without Jimmy G under center, but I personally think it won’t have that much of a change other than not having as many deep throws.
The Will Dissly hype looks like it is finally dying down after his disappointing week 3. Steelers TE’s continue to split reps, and we still have no idea which one is going to go off any week.
Dallas Goedert- The second round rookie went from seeing 3 targets in week 1 to 0 targets in week 2 to 7 targets in week 3. The big difference? Carson Wentz returning under center for the Eagles. The Eagles currently lack weapons on the outside with Alshon Jeffery still being hurt so they will be forced to rely on their tight ends a little bit more. In week 3 Goedert showed flashes of being the offensive player the fans thought he would be when he got drafted by hauling in 7 catches on 7 targets for 73 yards and a red zone Touchdown. Goedert and Ertz were getting a lot of the red zone looks, and I expect this to continue throughout the season as they use their size and athelticism to get themselves open.
