We could see a shift at some point where Brandon Aiyuk takes over as the No. 1 receiver for the 49ers, but right now Samuel has been that guy. He has at least eight targets in three games in a row, and he scored at least 15 PPR points in each of the first two games this year. He had a tough matchup in Week 3 against Green Bay and scored just 10 PPR points, but he should have more freedom against Seattle this week. The Seahawks have faced four receivers who had at least eight targets in a game against them, and three of them scored at least 17 PPR points.

I'll give Woods one more chance as a starting Fantasy receiver, and hopefully his strong history against the Cardinals carries over to this week. In his past five meetings with Arizona, Woods has four games with at least 18 PPR points. It's been a struggle for Woods so far this year, and he's averaging just 9.1 PPR points per game. That's been magnified by the hot start for Cooper Kupp, who is the No. 1 PPR receiver at 30.0 PPR points per game. Hopefully, Matthew Stafford will start supporting both of his top guys, and Woods should remain in your lineup as a No. 2 Fantasy option in Week 4.

Beckham returned to action in Week 3 from last year's ACL injury, and he looked good with five catches for 77 yards on nine targets against Chicago. He also added one carry for 10 yards, and it appears like there's no restrictions on his playing time. With Jarvis Landry (knee) out, Beckham should lead the Browns in targets, and Baker Mayfield could be throwing more than usual in this game if the Vikings score points. Minnesota also has already allowed six receivers to score at least 13 PPR points this year.

We love targets, and Waddle had plenty of them in Week 3 at Las Vegas with 13. Now, while he had 12 catches, he only managed 58 yards, and this game went into overtime. Still, in the first start for Jacoby Brissett in place of the injured Tua Tagovailoa (ribs), this was a good sign. And now Waddle gets to face a Colts defense that has struggled with slot receivers on the season, and Indianapolis is second in the NFL with seven touchdowns allowed to receivers. Waddle is worth starting in all three-receiver leagues, with his value higher in PPR.

Like Waddle, Meyers was a target hog in Week 3 against New Orleans with 14. He managed nine catches for 94 yards, and hopefully he continues to rack up targets and receptions from Mac Jones with James White (hip) out. We expect the Patriots to be chasing points this week, and Meyers should be heavily involved in the passing game. The Buccaneers lead the NFL in receptions (67), yards (781) and touchdowns (eight) to opposing receivers, so there's a chance for Meyers and potentially Nelson Agholor or Kendrick Bourne to play well this week. Meyers has the most upside in PPR, and he's worth starting in all three-receiver leagues.

Davis, who spent the past four seasons with the Titans, gets the revenge game this week, and it's great that it's a fantastic matchup. Tennessee has already allowed five receivers to score at least 12 PPR points, and Davis will hopefully reach that total for the second time this year after he scored 26 PPR points in Week 1 at Carolina. He's combined for just 11 PPR points in the past two games, but he had 10 targets in Week 3 at Denver. I hope Zach Wilson continues to feature him like that in Week 4.

Brown is expected to play in Week 4 after being out in Week 3 because he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list. This should be a fun game for the Buccaneers passing attack in Tom Brady's return to New England, and this is a revenge game of sorts for Brown as well after his brief stint with the Patriots in 2019. Brown scored 23 PPR points in Week 1 against Dallas and just two PPR points in Week 2 against Atlanta. I'm hopeful his production is closer to Week 1, and he should be considered a low-end starter in all leagues.

Beasley has two games this season with at least 13 targets, and hopefully Josh Allen continues to lean on him this week. He has yet to score a touchdown, so his Fantasy value is limited in non-PPR leagues. But he has two games with at least 14 PPR points, which make him appealing as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in those formats. Emmanuel Sanders should also be considered a sleeper, and Allen should feast on this Texans defense at home.

Zaccheaus stepped up in Week 3 at the Giants with Russell Gage (ankle) out, and he could be a decent No. 3 PPR receiver in Week 4 against Washington. Zaccheaus had three catches for 32 yards and a touchdown on six targets against the Giants, and Washington is allowing the second-most Fantasy points to opposing receivers this year. So far, seven receivers have scored at least 12 PPR points against Washington this year.

Is this the squeaky wheel game for Anderson? After a dismal start to the season with just five catches and only 11 targets in three games, Panthers coach Matt Rhule said they have to find a way to get Anderson the ball. With Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) out, there could be more short-area targets coming for Anderson. And if Dallas cornerback Trevon Diggs is matched up with D.J. Moore, Sam Darnold might give Anderson more targets this week. He's worth using one more time as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in this matchup.

Golladay is still banged up with a hip ailment, but he's expected to play in Week 4 at New Orleans. He should be the Giants' No. 1 receiver with Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton both battling hamstring injuries, but Golladay should also get plenty of attention from Marshon Lattimore. He's only worth using as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver this week in most leagues, and Golladay has yet to score a touchdown this year.

Pittman has been a target beast the past two weeks with 12 in each game against the Rams and Titans. He's scored at least 12 PPR points in each game, and it's great to see him starting to live up to his preseason hype, especially with T.Y. Hilton (neck) out. But I'd lower expectations for him in this matchup with Miami's talented secondary, which is led by Xavien Howard and Byron Jones. That duo should be able to lock down Pittman, and he's only worth using as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver in most leagues.

It's hard to bench DeAndre Hopkins in any Fantasy league, but Kirk, A.J. Green and Rondale Moore are all potential sit candidates this week against the Rams. Kirk is off to a great start this season with two games of at least 17 PPR points, and hopefully he can continue to play well all year in this crowded receiving corps. But I would shy away from him this week in most leagues. The Rams have allowed one receiving touchdown to a wide receiver this season, which was Zach Pascal in Week 2. And Kirk has just 15 catches for 112 yards and no touchdowns in four career meetings with the Rams.

Ruggs has done a nice job the past two weeks against the Steelers and Dolphins with 14 targets, nine catches, 191 yards and a touchdown, and he continues to improve in each outing. But he should have a tough game this week against the Chargers, who have allowed just one touchdown to a wide receiver this year through the air. So far, Terry McLaurin (10 PPR points), Amari Cooper (five PPR points) and Tyreek Hill (10 PPR points) have struggled against the Chargers, with only CeeDee Lamb (16 PPR points) having a quality outing. At best, Ruggs is a No. 3 Fantasy receiver this week.

It was great to see Callaway catch his first NFL touchdown in Week 3 at New England, but it was completely ridiculous how it happened. He fell down while running into the end zone, Jameis Winston was then in the process of being sacked, and Winston just heaved the ball into the back of the end zone. Luckily for Winston, Callaway went up to grab it, and a disaster turned into a score. But Callaway only has 11 targets, seven catches and 63 yards on the season, and Winston is averaging just 21 passes a game. I'm not ready to trust Callaway just yet even though he scored.

We're waiting to find out the status of Diontae Johnson (knee) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs), but Claypool is fine and coming off a solid game in Week 3 against the Bengals with nine catches for 96 yards on 15 targets. He could have the chance for plenty of volume again if Johnson and Claypool are out, but he also should see plenty of coverage from Packers standout cornerback Jaire Alexander. Last week, Alexander helped limit Samuel to five catches for 52 yards on 10 targets, and Claypool could end up with a similar outcome. I'd only use Claypool as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues this week.
