A brief moment of sadness always comes over me when this time of week rolls around. Knowing that we are already are creeping towards mid season makes it even worse. The season is flying by per usual. If you are reading this then I know that your year is going well, or at the very least, you're holding out hope to turn things around. We all know someone sitting at 0-4 and is currently deleting their fantasy app. So, for those of you who still have your fantasy apps, let’s get to the start and sits.


QB CJ Stroud, Houston Texans (@ATL)

Rookie QBs usually don’t make a impact their rookie season. It’s too risky to play them and the turnovers usually pile up. That’s why it’s surprising through four games Stroud hasn’t thrown a single interception. In the last three games combined the stellar rookie has thrown for 970 Yards and 6 TDs. This man is putting up QB1 numbers week after week and is only owned in 32% of leagues. He won’t be available for much longer so if you are shaky at QB, or have someone like Justin Herbert on bye, don’t overlook Stroud and get him in your lineup.

RB Brian Robinson Jr, Washington Commanders (Chi)

Coming into the year Washington’s backfield was assumed to be split between Robinson and Antonio Gibson. That’s simply hasn’t been the case as Robinson has carried the ball 61 times this season in comparison to Gibson who has 13 carries. B-Rob is creeping up into RB1 territory at the moment. With 4 TDs already amassed early in the season, and with his clear dominance of playing time, Robinson is a true lineup lock now. Up against Chicago this week who is allowed over 100 rushing yards per game this season it makes sense to have Robinson in your lineup.

WR Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers (@LV) 

One of the early surprises of the season has been the efficiency of the Green Bay Packers offense. Jordan love looks to be the guy in Lambeau. His go to target at the moment has been Doubs who has combined for 25 targets in just the last 2 games. That type of volume forces him into lineups. He’s set up with a great matchup this week against a Raiders team who has given up 8 passing TDs with only 1 interception to match. Even With fellow receiver, Christian Watson back into the fold I don’t expect Doubs share total to drop much. Pick him up and play him.

TE Jake Ferguson, Dallas Cowboys (@SF)

We all know how up and down the TE position is. In today’s NFL all you have to do to be a TE1 in fantasy is have consistent volume and don’t bottom out. So many TEs put up 1 catch games and it’s truly frustrating. Jake Ferguson will be a true TE1 this season if he can keep the pace he’s got going. In 3 out of 4 games this season he has totaled 7 targets and had 5 or more catches in two of those games. I don’t expect many things to change with how the Dallas offense looks so I expect Ferguson to have a solid Floor week after week. Get him before he has a huge week.

DST Washington Commanders (Chi)

I’ve always been a believer in streaming defenses. So week to week it comes down to match ups. The Commanders have been torched for 30 points in three straight games. The last two games being against power house teams, the Eagles and the Bills. They are now matched up against Chicago. Who has allowed Justin Fields to be sacked 17 times so far this season. The Commanders have 13 sacks on the year and look for them to add to it on Sunday. Washington is available in 80% of leagues, pick them up, plug them in. They will be a top 10 defenses this week.

QB Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (KC) 

After starting out the year on absolute fire, Kirk Cousins took a pretty big step back against the Panthers, and was no doubt the cause of some losses in fantasy football Week 4. With just 139 yards passing and 2 Int we now know the floor of the Veteran QB. I am not expecting a big bounce back game and that’s why you should find a better option. The Chiefs have allowed an average of 190 yards passing to start off the year and have only surrendered 4 passing TDs. Expect a mid performance at best. Find another QB for this week.

RB Zack Moss, Indianapolis Colts (Ten)

Zack Moss on the sit list? But he has 48 Carries in just the last 2 games. Yes he has played well of late but this comes down to matchup and I believe you will see the floor of Moss this week. He’s up against a Titans defense allowing a league fewest 2.9 yards per carry, they have also allowed just 1 score on the ground. Yes Moss is involved in the offense but watch out for the 17 carry for 55 yards type game. Find a better option.

WR Jaylen Waddle, Miami Dolphins (NYG)

Here’s a stat line of a WR, he has 12 catches for 210 yards and zero TDs though 3 games. Is that a must start WR? I think not. That WR is Waddle and he is not holding up to his draft value. With Miami focusing on the run and Waddle yet to exceed 6 targets in a game he has become bench-able. If you like someone else on your roster don’t hesitate to take Waddle out of your lineup.

TE Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons (Hou)

Another year coming in being hopeful thinking Pitts is gonna take the next step. Well it looks as if he’s taking a step in the wrong direction. The Falcons clearly want to run the ball averaging just 186 passing yards a game so far. Through 4 games Pitts has a total of 11 catches for 121 yards. That’s not want you want from your TE1. He has the talent, just in the wrong offense. It’s time to give up on Kyle Pitts. 

DST San Francisco 49ers (Dal)

Coming into the year the 49ers were one of the few defenses that are must start every single week regardless of matchup. That has not held up after lackluster effort against the Cardinals. Only getting 1 sack and zero takeaways. Now they are match up against a legit offense with Dallas. Don’t drop them but if you can roster two defenses, definitely seek other options.
