Week 4 QB Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • September 26, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Andrew Luck $6,800

It still feels odd to call Luck a sleeper, but after two games as QB20 or worse and a league-low aDot, that’s the reality. This week, Luck gets the Texans defense in the dome in Indy. Houston’s defense has already lost key contributors to injury and has struggled through the opening of the year, still looking for their first win. – Ryan McDowell

Eli Manning $6,500

No team has been more generous to quarterbacks than the Saints through 3 games. In fact that includes a game against the now benched Tyrod Taylor. In the other two facing down field throwers they have given up 791 pass yards, Nine passing touchdowns and zero interceptions. The Giants made some changes on the offensive line a week ago and allowed Eli time to complete 86% of his passes for just under 300 yards and two TDs. You’ll see the Giants pound the targets OBJ’s direction this week as he tries to prove he’s the alpha wide receiver over Michael Thomas on the field Sunday. I expect the O/U number of 50 to climb as we head towards game time. – Sal Leto

Joe Flacco $5,900

It has been years since Flacco has been a viable streamer, even in the tastiest of matchups. Be it the drafting of Lamar Jackson or just better health than the past few years, Flacco has looked reborn in Baltimore. He’s armed with arguably the best weapons of his career an his 6.89 yards per attempt is the highest number he has posted since his strong 2014 campaign. Perhaps most importantly, the Ravens league the lead in offensive plays run per game and and play at the league’s second-fastest place with a play every 24.08 seconds, per Football Outsiders. Offensive pace is a rising tide which lifts all boats. The Steelers have offered little resistance against Patrick Mahomes and Ryan Fitzpatrick this past two weeks and this game has shootout potential in primetime. Flacco makes for a strong play under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Ryan Fitzpatrick $6,700

If he thought the Steelers defense was tough…A week after throwing for 400 yards for the third consecutive game, becoming the first player in NFL history to accomplish this, Ryan Fitzpatrick faces the Bears staunch defense. Not only has the Chicago defense been creating turnovers (third in interception rate) and limiting the overall pace of the game. The Bears are top five in the league in yards allowed per game and lead the league in sack ratio, tackling the QB on over 14% of dropbacks. – Ryan McDowell

Jared Goff $7,600

No team has looked more in sync overall than the Los Angeles Rams. They welcome in a Vikings team that’s sure to be well rested seeing as they never really showed up on Sunday. Even in that game they held the passer to under 200 yards and one touchdown, in fact they have held all QBs to one passing touchdown in each game this year. Where they got hurt last week was letting Allen get loose for two rushing TDs, not Goff’s forte. With over 400 total yards to running backs this year you can expect the Rams to rely heavy on Gurley’s legs and not as much Goff’s arm. – Sal Leto

Matthew Stafford $7,400

Stafford has rebounded from an abysmal opener against the Jets, but Sunday is not a great spot for him as he travels to Dallas. The Cowboys play at a snail’s pace, despite the fact their keepaway tactics have not been effective since 2016. Stafford should remain efficient in this game and has the weapons to post big numbers most weeks, but with an emerging running game and volume question marks, Week 4 figures to be a pedestrian one. – Rob Willette
