Week 4 of the NFL season is upon us and already tons of injuries are creating havoc amongst fantasy league managers. With an elongated NFL season containing 17 games this year, someone on your fantasy team is bound to miss out on some action. Fear not! Check out our list of Fantasy Football Streamers for Week 4 that could buy you time to recover from any injuries your team has suffered or provide the extra firepower you need to get a win against a tough matchup this week
Sam Darnold Vs. Dallas Cowboys
Sam Darnold is playing at an elite level so far in three games this season, posting a 3-0 record and silencing doubters who thought that he was the problem with the New York jets franchise. Darnold will be facing the Dallas Cowboys who rank second to last in passing defense this Sunday. DJ Moore is emerging as one of the best wide receivers in the league and with his matchup against the Dallas Cowboy’s secondary, I expect Darnold to be throwing the ball a lot against a secondary who allowed 995 yards through the air in three games this season. Darnold has thrown for over 300 yards in two out of three games this season while posing as both a threat through the air and on the ground. Darnold is rostered in %15.1 of leagues per ESPN Fantasy and currently holds a POS Rank of #12.
Chuba Hubbard Vs. Dallas Cowboys
I have a good feeling about the Carolina Panthers offense this week. Despite the loss of Christian McCaffrey, Chuba Hubbard played well in his limited time after replacing the injured star about halfway through last week’s matchup against the Texans. Hubbard rushed the ball 11 times for 52 yards while tallying three receptions for 27 yards on five targets. Sunday will be Hubbard’s first career start as RB1 for the Panthers and with him being rostered in only %72.5 of leagues, the rookie running back is a great option at the RB2 of FLEX positions.
Cordarrelle Patterson Vs. Washington Football Team
Cordarrelle Patterson has been playing consistent football all year and is a great addition for someone looking to fill in their FLEX spot. Last week against the New York Giants, Patterson rushed the ball 7 times for 20 yards but hauled in 6 catches for 82 yards. Patterson was a key player in the Falcons win over the Giants and I expect Matt Ryan to toss the ball his way a lot this weekend. The Washington Football Team did not record a single sack against the Buffalo Bills and Patterson will pose as a great bail-out option whenever Chase Young and the rest of the defense create pressure on Matt Ryan. Patterson is rostered in %68.9 of leagues and currently holds a POS Rank of #9, averaging 16.3 fantasy points a game.
Hunter Renfrow Vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Hunter Renfrow is one of the most slept on players in the NFL. The Raiders wide receiver has caught the ball at least five times in every game so far this season and has eclipsed over 70 yards in two out of three games. Renfrow is currently rostered in only %26.6 of leagues and with the league leader in passing yards in the NFL throwing him the ball, there is a good chance that Renfrow will keep you satisfied with your fantasy performance this week.
Cole Beasley Vs. Houston Texans
Cole Beasley is a beast. The Buffalo Bills wide receiver notched 11 catches on 13 targets last Sunday against the Washington Football team in a resounding victory where Josh Allen launched the ball three the air over 40 times. Beasley is yet to score this season, but the veteran receiver tends to find his way to the end zone sooner rather than later, so I would expect a big game out of him against a struggling Houston Texans team. If Allen throws the ball as much as he did in Week 3, I have no doubt that Cole Beasley will be on the receiving side for a large chunk of those attempts. Beasley is owned in %72.4 of leagues and should fit in nicely into the FLEX position for Week 4.
Dalton Shultz Vs. Carolina Panthers
Dalton Shultz went off on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, catching the ball 6 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns. Dak Prescott is playing really good football right now and with a monstrous performance by Shultz in Week 3, I expect the Cowboys Tight End to be even more involved than last week. Shultz holds a POS Rank of #5 and is rostered in only %10.5 of leagues. Shultz should make a great replacement to anyone who needs to fill in their tight end position and has the potential to be a TE1 candidate for the remainder of the season.
Mason Crosby Vs. Pittsburg Steelers
Mason Crosby has once again proven why he is one of the most clutch kickers in the NFL. The Packers kicker has nailed all eight of his PATs this season and has gone 4 for 4 in field goals, including a game-winning 51 yard walk off kick. Green bay seems to have found its rhythm and should be able to line up Crosby with multiple opportunities to kick PATs and a few field goals against a struggling Pittsburg Steelers team. Crosby is rostered in %9.6 of leagues and can be a great addition for any team struggling with their kickers.
Detroit Lions against the Chicago Bears
The Bears offense was just downright awful last week. Chicago QB Justin Fields got his first career start in the NFL and things did not go well. The Bears racked up a total of 114 yards on offense. Yikes! The Lions defense held their ground against a very good Ravens team allowing 19 points last week, three of which came from an NFL record 66-yard field goal by Justin Tucker. I think Justin Fields will pan out and become a great player in the league, but after last week’s performance, the Bears have a ton to worry about on offense. The Lions should be available in almost %99 of leagues and I think starting them against a rookie QB could be very beneficial to anyone’s lineup.
