Week 4: Get "Em In, Get 'Em Out

SHARE:

Fantasy football can be one fickle you know what.  Last week I was all in on someone like Kenny Golladay, against a Swiss cheese Eagles secondary, only to see Marvin Jones have all the fun while Golladay posted 3 fantasy points.  Then I was all out on a guy like Curtis Samuel in Carolina as he was playing with a new quarterback, but ended up showing strong chemistry and pulled in a touchdown.  Funny how things work.  Still, there are matchups that do not bear ignoring and you must play the odds.  These are plays for Week 4.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Green Bay Packers

  • Get 'Em In
    • Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Scantling entered Week 3 against what had been, a pedestrian defense through two weeks with Denver.  Scantling was able to post a strong stat line against them as he saw ten targets from Aaron Rodgers while bringing in six of them for 99 yards and a score.  Now, against that aforementioned Swiss Cheese Eagles secondary, you could see a similar stat line, even on a short week.  Davonte Adams and Scantling both deserves starts.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Carson Wentz - Wentz and the entire Eagles team have been less than stellar to start the year.  A lot of that can be placed on the Eagles receiving corps, which is the walking wounded and all have a case of the drops.  Those drops lead to Wentz only completing 52.8 percent of his passes last week at home against the Lions.  It appears Alshon Jeffrey should be returning Thursday night, but on a short week, on the road, against a quietly very good Green Bay defense, I don't love Wentz.

Tennessee Titans @ Atlanta Falcons



  • Get 'Em In
    • Derrick Henry - While Henry has yet to eclipse the century mark in 2019, he also has not finished without double digit fantasy points either.  Even a week ago where he only mustered 44 yards on the ground, he salvaged the day with a touchdown.  Atlanta has been torched on the ground to start the season, and Henry should find a good chunk of success.  Maybe a big enough chunk to hit that 100 yard mark.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Calvin Ridley - I am only saying Calvin Ridley because I would never have the gall to saw Julio Jones.  With that said, you should temper expectations for all Falcons' offensive players.  The Falcons have yet to find any rhythm at all and now face the Titans, whose secondary has yet to allow any receiver to exceed 80 receiving yards.  You couple that stat with Ridley only having one reception for six yards a week ago and it sounds like a recipe for disaster.

  •  Get 'Em In
    • Adrian Peterson - Not calling AP a RB1 or expecting a career day, but I do think he should warrant a flex this week.  He has not done much since taking over as starter, but that was also against the Cowboys, which game flow took him out, and against the Bears which in terms of defenses, is as tough as they come.  This week against the Giants presents him the 22nd ranked run defense and I think a very real shot of 60-70 yards and punching one in the end zone.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Wayne Gallman - Fantasy players will jump all over Gallman over sheer volume potential and in deeper leagues that is warranted.  However, if you are not desperate, avoid Gallman.  Starting this week, he faces a pretty good run defense with Washington, and follows that up with the Vikings, Patriots, and Cardinals.  All of which are top 10 in stopping the run.  Gallman has the cards stacked against him.
Los Angeles Chargers @ Miami Dolphins


  • Get 'Em In
    • Keenan Allen - Allen continues to be an absolute target hog, drawing 15 two weeks ago, and another 17 last week that saw him bring in 13 of them for 183 yards and two scores.  Allen has been lethal from the jump this year, and now with a matchup against the pathetic Dolphins, all signs point to Allen keeping his fast start rolling.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Austin Ekeler - You would find it hard pressed to bench anyone going against the Dolphins woeful defense, but Ekeler's time is slowly coming to an end as rumors swirl of Melvin Gordon's return, and last week was only handed the ball nine times.  Ekeler is probably still a safe RB3 this week, but if the Chargers get up early, which lets be honest, they probably will, they may actually turn to Justin Jackson to work the clock.

Oakland Raiders @ Indianapolis Colts



  • Get 'Em In
    • Jacoby Brissett - Absolutely.  The man has me believing after the Colts second straight win.  During the first three games, Brissett's fantasy points have gone up each week.  Week 4 presents a juicy home matchup against a bad Oakland defense.  Whether Hilton plays or not, Brissett is fully capable of another 300 yard, multi-touchdown performance.  And let's be honest, with the amount of quarterbacks injured throughout the league, you could do a lot worse.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jack Doyle - Doyle and Ebron remain in a pretty close timeshare, but Doyle is still second fiddle and has not caught more than four balls in a game this year.  Doyle is heavily touchdown dependent in the fantasy world, and the fact he has not caught one yet this year makes him far too risky.  Even against a vulnerable Raiders defense.

Carolina Panthers @ Houston Texans



  • Get 'Em In
    • Will Fuller - Will Fuller has yet to hit the end zone this year, never mind having one of his patented multi-touchdown performances he's been know for the past few years.  Why not this week?  Fuller has been seeing the target volume the past two weeks with seven each game.  Week 4 presents a Carolina defense that does not present a tough test by any means and can easily be thrown on.  With all attention rightfully going to Hopkins, roll Fuller out this week and look like a genius when he scores twice.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Duke Johnson - Duke Johnson is currently fantasy irrelevant and will remain that way until he gives us any reason to change our minds.  He had only six carries and three fantasy points two weeks ago, and last week a measly two carries for only four fantasy points.  We all knew he would not be expected to be an every down back and be more of a pass catcher, but the latter is not even taking place with only nine targets all year.  Get Duke on the bench until further notice.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Detroit Lions



  • Get 'Em In
    • Kenny Golladay - He can't lay an egg for a second straight week, can he?  CAN HE?  You just know Detroit is going to have to throw the ball like crazy, and I for one am not risking benching Golladay because of one bad week in the stat book.  Neither should you.  Get Golladay back in there and in there as a WR1.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Kerryon Johnson - Come on guys.  We all know how it goes with Detroit Running Backs.  They get hyped in the preseason.  They tell us over and over again how much they want to run the ball.  How much they want to establish it and be balanced.  Then that back goes out and averages 42 yards a game.  This is what makes the world go round.  And what makes your fantasy team go in the crapper.

Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens



  • Get 'Em In
    • Lamar Jackson - Even what you could consider a down week last week in Kansas City, Jackson still accumulated 20 fantasy points.  Not great, but also not bad.  You can survive with 20 fantasy points from your quarterback.  This week's test is not much easier as he squares off with a decent Browns defense.  The thing that will always make Jackson playable it seems though, is his ability to run.  20 fantasy points should once again be obtainable, if not better.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Baker Mayfield - You know who leads the league in interceptions since 2018?  None other that Baker Mayfield.  We continue to give him passes, and continue to wait for his true breakout, and it does not come.  Well let me tell you, its not coming this week either.  Not on the road in Baltimore.  If anything, he will pad that little interception stat I just gave you.

New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills



  • Get 'Em In
    • Rex Burkhead -  It scares me to say Burkhead because we know how the Patriots offense goes.  Just when you think someone is the guy, Belichick rips him right out and he ends with two carries.  I am going to go out on a limb and say that will not happen to Burkhead.  At least not this week.  A couple factors go into this, first being the Patriots just had to place fullback James Develin on the IR, which was the bloodline for Sony Michel's run game.  Michel would just follow right behind Develin.  With him out, I think we see less Sony.  The other being the Bills just lost defensive tackle Harrison Phillips to a season ending ACL injury clearing up space up the middle.  Exactly where Burkhead wants to run.  I like Burkhead as a Flex play this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Josh Allen -  Allen has gotten himself off to a nice little start.  While not flashy, he has helped get the Bills to 3-0, while posting no less than 20 fantasy points each week this season.  I think that 20 point output comes to and end this week.  I expect the Patriots defense to give him fits come Sunday afternoon.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Los Angeles Rams



  • Get 'Em In
    • Cooper Kupp - Week 1 for Kupp was simply to shake the rust off.  Since then, he has looked like the Cooper Kupp of old racking up 16 catches for 222 yards and two scores.  Scorching hot.  Up next is a Tampa defense that just got roasted by rookie Daniel Jones and a bleak Giants wide receivers group.  Love Kupp again this week.
    • Jameis Winston - Week 4 presents a matchup for the Buccaneers that more than likely enters a game flow of them having to chase points.  I foresee Jameis trying to do more than he is capable of as he tries and keep pace, and throw numerous interceptions.  Something we have seen him do time and time again.  The Rams defense has started off against some less than easy talent with Carolina, New Orleans and Cleveland, and have come out with no less than nine fantasy points.  I think they make a statement this week with multiple turnovers, one being a pick-6.  Get Jameis out.
Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals

  • Get 'Em In
    • Tyler Lockett - I told you last week to not only get Lockett in your lineup, but also that it was time to give him top wideout respect.  How did he back me up?  With 11 catches, 154 yards, and a touchdown.  Now Seattle heads to the desert where the Cardinals cannot stop anyone's passing game, getting gashed by Kyle Allen a week ago.  Russell Wilson should have a field day with Lockett being the main beneficiary.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • David Johnson - David Johnson has yet to turn back to anything close to the 2,000 yard all purpose back we once saw.  And now he is banged up again with a wrist injury.  While he played a week ago without any sort of brace, Arizona only handed him the ball 11 times where he could only muster 37 yards.  Johnson continues to run behind a putrid offensive line.  You mix that with the fact Arizona will consistently be playing from behind, and it's a situation to avoid.
Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears


  • Get 'Em In
    • Dalvin Cook - This is basically a formality of "I have to pick someone".  In all reality, I am avoiding all skill players from this game as it is chalking up to be an old-time defensive game.  But also in reality, you're not benching Cook.  And let's be honest, does Minnesota really want to put this game in Kirk Cousins hands?  Of course not.  Play Cook and hope he salvages the day with a plunge into the end zone.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Stefon Diggs- If you take away Diggs 49 yard touchdown against Green Bay in Week 2, he has accumulated five catches for 52 yards.  That's it.  Now, on the road, against the powerhouse Bears defense, amidst trade demand rumors?  No thanks.  Sit Diggs.
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Denver Broncos


  • Get 'Em In
    • Leonard Fournette - Much like the matchup above, this could be old school ugly football.  But out of the sake of fulfilling my article title, I will give you one to Get In, which is Leonard Fournette.  Fournette has yet to top 66 yards, but faces a bottom of the barrel Broncos run defense that has continually been gashed.  On top of that, Jaguars have kept Fournette involved in the passing game with 14 receptions this year.  He is a borderline RB2 this week and should finally hit the end zone.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Gardner Minshew II - We all love everything that is Gardner Minshew II, but don't get caught up in that dreamy mustache and miss the fact that he is taking a trip to the Mile High City.  Always one of the toughest places to play, proven by the 15 fantasy points a game quarterbacks average playing there since the start of last year.  Minshew should come nowhere close to a fantasy lineup this week.

Dallas Cowboys @ New Orleans Saints



  • Get 'Em In
    • Alvin Kamara - The Cowboys defense has not been flashy.  And even though they have only allowed a total of 42 points through three games, they have had problems tackling.  Enter Alvin Kamara.  The Cowboys main goal in this game should be honing in on Kamara and shutting him down, and forcing Bridgewater to throw, but that is easier said than done.  Last year, when New Orleans traveled to Dallas in Week 13, Kamara only managed 36 yards.  I do not expect that at all.  Kamara should be able to cause issues for the Cowboys Defense.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jared Cook - This is the second straight week I am off on Jared Cook.  He just appears to have no role in the Saints offense.  After one game with Teddy Bridgewater that yielded him two targets for one catch, I do not see any monster jump making him a relevant tight end.  Shy away.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers


  • Get 'Em In
    • James Connor - This is simply playing the matchups.  Connor has gotten off to a slow start, and the 43 yards he was able to muster up last week was a season high.  But this week brings in the 31st ranked Bengals run defense.  You have to get Connor in your lineup for this battle of 0-3 teams on Monday Night Football.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Tyler Eifert - The fact we are hitting Week 4 and Tyler Eifert is still healthy is a real life win.  For a guy whose career has been derailed by injuries, you love to see it.  However, the productions is not even close to what it once was when Eifert was a pro bowler.  Eifert has a total of nine receptions on the year, making him incredibly touchdown dependent.
