Week 4 is loaded with options as the Ravens, Chiefs, Cowboys, and Seahawks are all on the main slate. We also have high scoring games in Houston, Detroit, Las Vegas, Cincinnati, and Carolina. Now I love Seattle, Houston, and the Bengals. I have talked about them in a few articles this week, so I will touch on some different names and more DK oriented names here.

Quarterbacks

Joe Burrow - $6,300 - GPP Projection: 21.9

I like a handful of quarterbacks in this range as Deshaun Watson is one of my favorite plays this week. Joe Burrow is $6,300 which is deserving given he looks not like a rookie quarterback. He gets a Jaguars defense that is allowing 2.1 touchdowns per game this season through the air and are allowing 20.9 fantasy points per game.

Ryan Fitzpatrick - $5,400 - GPP Projection: 23.1

There haven't been many quarterbacks below $6,000 I wanted to use this season, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is the first. From a value perspective he has a lot of potential to smash value. But it is also just a great matchup as the Seattle secondary has allowed 388 passing yards per game and 25.6 DK points to opposing quarterbacks.

Running Backs

Austin Ekeler - $7,100 - GPP Projection: 21.5

I talked about Austin Ekeler last week and this is a sneaky good spot if he can follow the other receiving backs. Tampa has allowed 60.7 receiving yards to running backs and of course they have played Kamara and McCaffrey, but Ekeler has been terrific. He projects for over 20 fantasy points and is in a wide mix of viable running backs this week.

Kareem Hunt - $6,200 - GPP Projection: 15.1

Kareem Hunt returned to practice this Friday, which bodes well for him this week. Hunt has looked great and gets a matchup where he should be involved in a heavy way through the air as they will need to put up some points. Dallas has pushed the pace this year and it creates big scoring games. Hunt should go overlooked.

Ronald Jones - $4,700 - GPP Projection: 13.5

With Leonard Fournette ruled out, this leaves LeSean McCoy and Ronald Jones. I still don't trust Bruce Arians to just fully give the ball to Jones and let him run the show. There is a scenario where this is still a split workload. Either way, he is worth a look in tournaments. The Chargers defense is tough but the injuries are piling up like they do every year.

Wide Receivers

Andy Isabella - $4,500 - GPP Projection: 8.4

This is one to play if DeAndre Hopkins is out. The snaps will go out and Isabella is one of the values I am keeping an eye on. The Panthers secondary is one to target, and Isabella is one of the fastest players who can break one to the bank. We have seen it over a few games but never in games where he is going to clearly get snaps.

Will Fuller - $5,900 - GPP Projection: 16.1

If Will Fuller can make it through this game, he is going to have a big week. Minnesota has allowed 200.6 receiving yards to receivers alone this season and 1.54 touchdowns. Overall they are allowing 29.8 fantasy points per game.

Robby Anderson - $5,400 - GPP Projection: 18.2

Robby Anderson has been on fire in Carolina and Teddy Bridgewater has looked his way quite often. Arizona's defense didn't look that good against Detroit and the Panthers offense has plenty of weapons to fire away with. At $5,400 this is still a solid price tag for him and projects as one of the better values.

Kenny Golladay - $6,000 - GPP Projection: 17.7

The Saints are really banged up this week and that goes for the defensive side. Marshon Lattimore has been ruled out and that means Kenny Golladay is going to run wild and free. Golladay has a 20.7 fantasy point ceiling over his last eight healthy games. At $6,000 this is a nice bargain in a game where we expect some points to be scored.

Tight End

Mike Gesicki - $5,100 - GPP Projection: 15.6

In a game that is expected to be a shootout, Mike Gesicki is a nice way to game stack this one as well. Seattle doesn't have a tight end worth using where Gesicki can slide right in with a Miami stack or Seattle. The Seahawks defense has not been good and the Miami offense is good enough to move the ball in this spot. Gesicki has a ton of upside this week and might fly under the radar.

Defense

Buccaneers - $3,400 - GPP Projection: 12.4

Tampa Bay has shown off their upside and this defense is very good. They have put together a lot of strong pieces and the secondary is what seals the deal for improvement for me. They get the Chargers this week who have an 18 implied total and a rookie quarterback that was a bit of a gunslinger last week. The turnover upside is there and they should be able to get to him with the pass rush as well.
