We are now a quarter into the season; we’ve got breakout offenses like Philly, surprising possible QB1 in Trevor Lawrence, and fantasy football duds from normal studs like Brady, Wilson, and Ekeler.

This is also a week with injuries; no D’Andre Swift, Amon-Ra St. Brown, David Montgomery. With the uncertainty of Dalvin Cook and Alvin Kamara looming as well. There is still a long way to go, your fantasy football season isn’t over, but you need to start racking up the wins now. I’m going to do my best to guide you to those wins.



Jalen Hurts v JAX

Hurts has been playing like an NFL MVP candidate, and while Jacksonville’s defense has played well, the Philly offense will be too much to stop.

Trevor Lawrence v PHI

Lawrence has looked really sharp the first three weeks, showing why he was so highly touted. I believe he keeps his ascension going, but it won’t be an easy matchup.

Russell Wilson v LV

He’s got to break out at some point… right?

Justin Herbert v HOU

He played last week through the injury and made it out safely, and I feel comfortable starting him this week as opposed to last week.

Tom Brady v KC

I originally had him in the sit category, but with Mike Evans back, possibly Chris Godwin back as well, I feel like this would be the game that TB shows us why he came out of retirement.


Jared Goff v SEA

I originally had him starting, but with Amon-Ra and D’Andre Swift out, I became a little skeptical.

Kirk Cousins v NO

Cousins has struggled of late, the Saints are really talented, and they haven’t given him problems before.

Carson Wentz v DAL

He’s had some highs and some lows. Sit until the highs are consistent.

Justin Fields v NYG

Do not start him until he gives you a reason to, i.e., Lawrence.

Zach Wilson v PIT

Coming off an injury, Pittsburgh is a tough draw. We haven’t seen him play yet, so let’s be cautious and patient.



Khalil Herbert v NYG

This is who the Bears’ offensive coaches wanted playing along, and I expect him to have a big game. Both in the air and on the ground.

Nick Chubb v ATL

No brainer, even if the Falcons run defense has been good this season.

Saquon Barkley v CHI

Saquon is currently RB1, and in one of my leagues, he was drafted 26th. A favorable matchup against Chicago, who has given up 4.9 yards per carry to running backs this season.

Najee Harris v NYJ

I find it hard to believe that Najee won’t have a great game against the New York Jets.

Austin Ekeler v HOU

The Chargers won’t get blown out again, so Ekeler will be able to touch the ball more naturally, given the time and score.


Damien Harris v GB

More rumors of Rhamondre taking over the RB1 spot.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire v TB

Tampa’s run defense against an inconsistent running back? Give me Tampa Bay.

Alvin Kamara v MIN, Dalvin Cook v NO

Both are dealing with an injury, and I would sit them if they are active. One bad hit to the ribs or shoulder, and they are out for the game.

Devin Singletary v BAL

He performed really well last week, and he needs to prove he can do it again.



Diontae Johnson v NYJ

He is likely matched up with rookie Sauce Gardner; I’m looking forward to this matchup.

AJ Brown v JAX

AJ Brown has been unreal through three weeks; that doesn’t change in week four.

Chris Olave v MIN

No Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry questionable. Olave has 29 targets through three weeks, with them in the lineup. I expect another big game from the rookie.

Michael Pittman Jr v TEN

Pittman Jr is the clear number one receiver in this offense; if he plays, start him.

Ceedee Lamb v WSH

He had a few drops last week but made up for it with a one-handed touchdown catch. Against a Washington defense that got dominated last week, he has a favorable matchup.


Darnell Mooney v NYG

Darnell Mooney has ELEVEN targets through three weeks.

DJ Moore v ARI

DJ Moore only has SEVEN catches through three games.

Elijah Moore v PIT

With Zach Wilson returning, it’s unknown what the target share will be between Moore and Garrett Wilson.

Juju Smith-Shuster v TB

This is a real boom or bust play, and I don’t have enough trust that he’ll have a great game against Tampa’s defense.

Allen Robinson v SF

He has twelve targets on the year, and Kupp and Higbee have dominated the target share.



TJ Hockenson v SEA

Without Amon-Ra and Swift, Hock could have a career game.

Zach Ertz v CAR

Zach gets a lot of targets every week and is TE4.

Tyler Higbee v SF

Higbee has 24 targets through three games and is TE7.

Kyle Pitts v CLE

I know people are worried about Pitts, but he got 8 targets last week. That is a step in the right direction. He will score a touchdown this week.

Darren Waller v DEN

With no Renfrow, it opens up even more opportunities for Waller.


Irv Smith Jr v NO

He doesn’t seem to be as big a part of the offense as advertised.

Albert O v LV

The same should be said for Albert O.

Gerald Everett v HOU

I don’t think Everett is going to be a guy that gets a lot of looks from week to week.

Hunter Henry v GB

Whether it’s Mac Jones or Brian Hoyer, I would sit him.

Dalton Schultz v WSH

He is coming off missing a week, and we don’t know his rapport with Cooper Rush yet.




The Chargers’ defense has to come together and show out at some point; why not against Davis Mills?


Steelers defense v Zach Wilson. Enough said.


Wentz was bad last week. If he continues his struggles, this is the defense you want in your lineup.


The Titans’ offense hasn’t been very good, so this could be low scoring, and with a few turnovers, it’s a great day for the Indy defense.


Justin Fields hasn’t really been able to get a rhythm. I don’t see this being the week that he does.



I think the Chargers have an all-around great game.


This will be a high-scoring, back-and-forth affair, and neither defense should be in your lineup.


Tampa’s defense is great, but Mahomes has some unfinished business, and I think he lights them up.


The defense looked terrible last week, so I would sit to be cautious.
