Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options
by Chris Towers |

Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.

Can Blake Bortles find success in Week 4?
by Chris Towers |

The Chargers made a point of improving their pass defense this offseason, after allowing the fourth-most passing yards in the league a year ago. Through three games, they have allowed the ninth-most Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, so… mission accomplished?

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has the pleasure of making his first NFL start against the Chargers defense, which should work out well for him. The Chargers are allowing an average of 20.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, including 17 last week to lowly Bills passer E.J. Manuel.

The Chargers have yet to intercept a pass, which is good news for Bortles, because accuracy and decision-making might be issues for him at this point. Bortles was intercepted twice during his relief action against the Colts last week, both on plain-old poor throws. Against an opportunistic defense, Bortles might be in line for trouble, but the Chargers have had trouble taking advantage of quarterbacks' mistakes so far.

At the Fantasy Football Today blog, I took a closer look at Bortles' work in the debut, highlighting his best skills -- mobility -- and biggest flaws -- decision making. 

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard have Bortles just inside the top 20 in their initial rankings for Week 4, a good spot if you have him as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback. Mistakes will be made, but Bortles has a chance to be productive in his first start.

Allen Robinson improving, defining his role
by Chris Towers |

Allen Robinson has stepped into a larger role in the Jaguars' offense over the last two weeks, and showed that he has developed a quick rapport with new starting quarterback Blake Bortles in Week 3. Should Fantasy owners expect that to continue?

Robinson did not see a single snap in the preseason, as he watched undrafted rookie Allen Hurns surpass him on the depth chart while getting extensive playing time with Bortles. That did not seem to hinder Robinson's development much, as he was Bortles' favorite target Sunday. Bortles threw eight of his 24 passes to Robinson, completing six of them for 73 yards. Though he didn't haul in either of Bortles' touchdowns, the duo was on the same page immediately, which should bode well for Robinson moving forward.

Robinson is going to struggle with inconsistency, as all rookies do, but he has already established himself as a solid option in Jacksonville. Robinson still played just 70 percent of the team's snaps in Week 3, but his strong relationship with Bortles could help him in that regard. At the very least, at just 9 percent ownership, Robinson makes for a nice long-term flier.
