10 Things You Need to Know from Week 4

by • October 1, 2018

Week Four is nearly complete. It is hard to imagine that we are nearly one-quarter of the way through the regular season and essentially a third through the fantasy football regular season. Make sure you’re keeping up with the latest news. Here’s what you need to know from the Sunday games this week.

Jameis Returns

Fresh off his three-game suspension, Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston made his 2018 debut, although not in the manner the Bucs had planned. Winston took over for a struggling QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second half and didn’t perform much better himself. Expect Winston to keep this job moving forward.

Trubisky Enjoys Career Day

We all know passing offenses should flourish against the Buccaneers weak defense and Bears sophomore QB Mitch Trubisky took that to the extreme. Trubisky threw for 354 yards and six touchdowns, including five in the first half. Both numbers are career-highs for the former second overall pick. This was comforting for Bears fans to see but we shouldn’t expect anything close to this level of offensive explosion moving forward.

Fournette Hamstrung Again

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette returned to the field after missing two games only to have his injured hamstring tighten up, forcing him to leave the game in the first half. Fournette has to be considered iffy to play in Week Five meaning he could go the first five weeks without getting in a full game.

Injured Tight Ends

During the practice week leading up to the Week Four action, Broncos TE Jake Butt suffered a torn ACL. That would prove to be just a preview of what was to come on Sunday. Bengals TE went down with a season-ending fractured ankle, while Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was unable to finish the game. Buccaneers promising sophomore TE OJ Howard left with a knee injury and will need an MRI to further evaluate. That’s never a good sign. The Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson had been relying on surprise rookie TE Will Dissly but no more as he suffered a torn patella, ending his season.

Gordon Debuts

The much-anticipated Patriots debut of WR Josh Gordon came and went with little fanfare. Gordon did draw the start but played sparingly, finishing with two receptions for 32 yards. This receiver depth chart will become even tougher to read as the Patriots welcome WR Julian Edelman back from his suspension.

Rookie QBs Draw First Start

Browns QB Baker Mayfield and Cardinals QB Josh Rosen both made the first start of their respective careers on Sunday. While both came up on the losing end, each had their teams in the game throughout with a chance to win it in the end. If you are fans of these teams or fantasy owners of these players, things are certainly looking up.

Kamara Stays Hot

The Saints/Giants contest was much closer than expected in the early going before RB Alvin Kamara took over the game. In his final game without RB Mark Ingram, Kamara set a career-high with 134 rushing yards and scored three touchdowns. It is not a stretch to rank Kamara as your RB1 in any format.

Conner Regressing

After totaling nearly 200 yards and two scores in the season-opener, the Steelers looked like they wouldn’t even miss holdout RB Le’Veon Bell. That’s far from the truth after Pittsburgh lost again on Sunday and Conner was largely ineffective throughout the game. Conner totaled just 44 yards in the game and is a risky fantasy option moving forward.

Boyd is Legit

The Bengals won a shootout with the Falcons in Atlanta Sunday, relying heavily on their passing game. QB Andy Dalton shined and regularly targeted third-year WR Tyler Boyd, who continued his breakout season with career highs in targets (15) and receptions (11), resulting in 100 yards. Boyd can be viewed as a weekly fantasy starter for the remainder of the season.

Georgia Backs Dominate

There’s a good reason why the University of Georgia was so successful last season. Rookie RBs Sony Michel (Patriots) and Nick Chubb (Browns) were both Bulldogs a year ago and on Sunday, each back ran for their first career 100-yard game. It came in very different circumstances. Michel served as the workhorse back for New England, carrying 25 times for 112 yards, while Chubb only got three touches but made them count. Chubb scored a pair of touchdowns and ran for 105 yards in very limited action, making a case for a larger role moving forward.
