Bold NFL Predictions Week 4
We have wrapped up three weeks of the fantasy football season and boy, there’s really nothing that’s certain in the game of football is there? Injuries have decimated the quarterback position, some of the games best players are missing time, and players in the likes of John Ross and Marlon Mack are top five in yards at their respective position. Just like we predicted right? Well, since things have been starting out a little dicey in the NFL so far this year, let’s spice it up a bit more this week with some really bold takes.
Dak Prescott Stifled by The Saints
Dak Prescott has had an amazing start to the season. He has lived up to the contract that he has been seeking out this offseason. The entire offense has been running on all cylinders and is making their case for the best team in the NFC East. Prescott has completed nearly 75% of his passes so far this year and has nearly 1000 passing yards with 9 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions. He’s taking care of the ball and throwing it very well early in the season. Dallas Cowboy fans and fantasy owners that have them on their team are very excited about this start. A lot of fantasy owners are trying to acquire him. But you may want to wait until after this week when he comes back down to earth. The New Orleans Saints just marched into Seattle and took care of business against the Seahawks, and they’re fixing to do the same this week against the Cowboys. Dak will have a hard time topping 225 passing yards this week and will have just one passing touchdown with two interceptions.
Wayne Gallman Has a Big Game
The unfortunate injury bug hit one of the best running backs and bright young stars. Saquon Barkley left Giants week three-game early with a high ankle sprain and it sounds like he may be out for a while. That means the former Clemson running back Wayne Gallman gets his shot at running this backfield. Now, when he stepped in last week, he failed to do much of anything. But with a full week of preparation behind this offensive line and new stud quarterback Daniel Jones at the helm, Gallman could be in for a big game. He has a chance to end up a high-end RB2 and maybe will sneak into the back half of RB1 territory. He has the potential to put up over 100 yards this week and may even scamper into the endzone for you. Gallman isn’t Barkley by any means, but with the right amount of volume, Gallman could make a big splash for your fantasy squad.[the_ad id=”79528″][the_ad id=”69556″]
Marlon Mack is RB 1 in Week 4
Marlon Mack has been a joy to watch this year, and really since he came into the league. He’s a shifty runner that likes to go from cut to cut and make people miss. With the offensive line he has, he can cut from hole to hole to find the biggest lane to break off big gains. The early-season success should continue in week four as Mack and this stellar offensive line gets to go against the Oakland Raiders who just allowed Dalvin Cook to run wild against them. Look for Mack to be the number one overall running back this week as he puts up nearly 150 yards rushing with two long touchdowns. If you need any more proof that Mack is a top-12 back, you’ll get that this week.
Robert Woods is Rams WR1
So far this season, Robert Woods has been the odd man out of the Los Angeles Rams’ trio of receivers. The Rams have enjoyed the luxury of throwing just about everything at Cooper Kupp who spent last year on the IR with a torn ACL. Brandin Cooks has also caught on over the last two weeks, which has made fantasy owners wonder, “when is it Robert Woods’ turn?” This may be the week. The Rams get the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who last year had one of the worst defenses in the league. So far this year that has turned around and they have looked solid. But given the weapons the Rams have on offense, it will be no match for them. Woods will get his turn this week and he will put up the most points out of any Rams receiver this week.
Will Dissly is TE 1 in Week 4
Will Dissly and the Seahawks get the division rival Arizona Cardinals this week. Let’s take a look at the type of points previous tight ends have put up against the Cardinals. Week one T.J. Hockenson put up 6 receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown. Week two 8 receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown. Week three Greg Olsen put up 6 receptions for 75 yards and two touchdowns. The chance for Dissly to have a good game is almost certain and you better be playing him. But not just for the good game. No, you’re going to be playing him because he is going to be the highest-scoring fantasy football tight end this week. He will outscore guys like George Kittle and Evan Engram and he will be the talk of the week next week.
