What's on your Fantasy wish list for Week 4? What do you really want to see happen?

Feel free to tweet me @jameyeisenberg with the things you're hoping for this week. Use the hashtag #Week4Wishes when you send them to me on Twitter.  

Here's a few things on my wish list:

If the Fantasy Football genie would only grant me one wish, it would be the last one because I'm tired of all these stars getting hurt. Saquon Barkley (ankle) and T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) were the latest ones in Week 3, but we're also still trying to overcome injuries to Tyreek Hill (collarbone), A.J. Green (ankle), Damien Williams (knee), Tevin Coleman (ankle), Cam Newton (foot), Drew Brees (thumb) and Roethlisberger (elbow), among others.

Now, with the bye weeks starting — the Jets and 49ers are off in Week 4 — you're going to find out how good the depth is on your Fantasy roster, especially if you're dealing with injury replacements. Hopefully, you're prepared.

And, maybe if things go your way, some of your wishes will come true. I can't wait to find out what those will be for Week 4.

Jared Goff has not been a good Fantasy quarterback this season. He comes into Week 4 as the No. 20 quarterback, behind guys like Case Keenum, Jacoby Brissett, Andy Dalton, Gardner Minshew and Marcus Mariota.

Yuck.

But it's not just this season where Goff has struggled. Since the Rams' bye in Week 12 last year, Goff has played 11 games, including the playoffs, and he only has two games with more than 20 Fantasy points. Over that span, Goff is averaging just 13.5 Fantasy points per game in leagues with six points for passing touchdowns.

It's not pretty. But this week is the get-right game for Goff. This is the game where he breaks out of his funk and goes off. It will happen against Tampa Bay at home.

I know, the Buccaneers defense has played well to start the season. The Bucs held Jimmy Garoppolo to 12 Fantasy points in Week 1, Cam Newton to 11 points in Week 2 and had Daniel Jones in check for the first half before he erupted in the second half of the Giants' 18-point comeback victory in Week 3.

But if you want to nitpick Tampa Bay's defense a little, you can. In Week 1, the 49ers scored on two defensive touchdowns, which took away two potential drives for the offense. And Garoppolo had two touchdowns to George Kittle taken away by penalties, so his stat line could have looked a lot different.

In Week 2, we know now that Newton was playing at less than 100 percent with his foot, which was a bonus for Tampa Bay. Maybe the real Buccaneers defense was the one we saw against Jones, who scored 37 Fantasy points.

We'll find out this week against Goff, who is hopefully ready to step up his performance. He scored 21 Fantasy points in his lone home game against the Saints in Week 2, but he had 11 points at Carolina in Week 1 and 17 points at Cleveland in Week 3.

I'm expecting Goff to be a top-five quarterback this week, and I'm excited about Cooper Kupp, Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods all having dominant outings. Goff is due for a big game, and it will happen against Tampa Bay at home.

I'm starting Goff over: Deshaun Watson (vs. CAR), Tom Brady (at BUF), Carson Wentz (at GB) and Matt Ryan (vs. TEN)

For the first time this season, we can confidently say that you should start Rodgers in all leagues. That's weird to write and likely stranger to read, but he's been a bad Fantasy quarterback through the first three games of 2019. And you guys have taken notice with his start percentage on CBS Sports at just 71 percent as of Wednesday morning. Whether it was the tough opponents against Chicago, Minnesota or Denver, or just dealing with learning a new offense under Matt LaFleur, Rodgers has struggled, scoring 18 Fantasy points or less in each outing. But the breakout game is coming Thursday night against the Eagles, who are banged up on defense and have allowed big performances already to Case Keenum and Matt Ryan. I also expect a big game for Davante Adams, but this should be the start of greatness for Rodgers moving forward. He's about to reward you for being patient through his struggles to start the year.

Rivers gets the free space this week against the Dolphins, who have allowed at least three total touchdowns to all three quarterbacks they've faced this season in Lamar Jackson, Tom Brady and Dak Prescott. Rivers has scored at least 22 Fantasy points in two of three games this season, with his lone poor performance coming on the road at Detroit with just 10 points. The only scenario where I could see Rivers struggling at Miami is if the run game takes over or the Chargers get some defense or special teams scores. But the matchup is too dreamy to consider benching Rivers, so hopefully he dominates the Dolphins just like Jackson, Brady and Prescott have already this year.

Jones had a dream debut in his first NFL start in Week 3 at Tampa Bay. He led an 18-point comeback and scored 37 Fantasy points with 23-of-36 passing for 336 yards and two touchdowns, as well as four carries for 28 yards and two rushing touchdowns. The only downside was Saquon Barkley (ankle) getting hurt, which stinks, but now the offense will run through Jones in a great matchup against Washington. Carson Wentz, Prescott and Mitchell Trubisky all passed for three touchdowns against the Redskins, who have to travel after playing Monday night. I almost went with Jones as the Start of the Week for Week 4 because I love his upside, and he's worth starting in all leagues in the first home start of his career.

Let's see if Stafford keeps up the trend of the home quarterback against the Chiefs having a dominant performance. Going back to last year, the Chiefs have played 10 road games, and they have allowed an average of 328.8 passing yards to opposing quarterbacks with 25 total touchdowns and six interceptions. Only Derek Carr in Week 2 and Case Keenum last year failed to score multiple touchdowns at home against the Chiefs. Stafford only has one game with more than 18 Fantasy points this season, which was Week 1 at Arizona when he scored 33 points, but I expect him to be forced to throw this week to keep up with Patrick Mahomes. Stafford is an excellent starting option in Week 4.

Allen will start for the foreseeable future with Cam Newton (foot) hurt, and hopefully Allen picks up where last week left off when he had 32 Fantasy points at Arizona. He's now scored at least 28 Fantasy points in his last two starts going back to Week 17 last year, and I like this matchup for him against the Texans, who have struggled with Drew Brees, Gardner Minshew and Rivers already this year. Allen also gets another homecoming game of sorts (he grew up in Scottsdale, AZ) since he played at the University of Houston, so hopefully that same motivation carries over to Week 4. I like Allen as a great streaming option this week in all leagues.

Keenum could be replaced at any moment by rookie Dwayne Haskins, so keep that in mind, but if he starts in Week 4 as expected then I like his chances as a Fantasy quarterback against the Giants. Keenum has multiple touchdowns in all three games this season, including two games with at least 332 passing yards. He's also scored at least 20 Fantasy points in two games. The Giants have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL, and Dak Prescott, Josh Allen and Jameis Winston have each scored at least 24 Fantasy points against them.

It appears Brissett will be without T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps), which lowers his Fantasy value, but I still like him as a low-end starter in deeper leagues. He's scored at least 19 Fantasy points in all three starts this season, and hopefully other options in the passing game step up to replace Hilton, including potentially Eric Ebron or Jack Doyle. The Raiders are on the road for the second week in a row, and we could see Brissett also make some plays with his legs.

Rudolph struggled at San Francisco in Week 3 in his first start for the injured Ben Roethlisberger (elbow), scoring 17 Fantasy points, but I expect a better outing in Week 4 at home against the Bengals. He's only an option in two-quarterback leagues, but I expect Cincinnati's defense to struggle on the road for the second week in a row. For the season, all three quarterbacks against the Bengals (Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garoppolo and Josh Allen) have scored at least 19 Fantasy points.

Mayfield has been among the biggest busts so far this season, and he's averaging just 13.0 Fantasy points per game in three starts. Better days are ahead, especially when the schedule lightens up, but I wouldn't trust him in Week 4 at Baltimore. While the Ravens defense is not the same dominant unit we're used to seeing, they still should be able to keep Mayfield under 20 Fantasy points for the fourth game in a row. Now, he did have 27 Fantasy points at Baltimore last year in Week 17, but it would be shocking to see him perform at that level in Week 4 given his three-game sample size in 2019. His offensive line has been bad, and Mayfield has looked off. Don't give up on him yet in terms of cutting him, but I wouldn't start him in most one-quarterback leagues at Baltimore.

Wentz has been a quality Fantasy quarterback so far this season, scoring at least 25 points in two of three games. His worst game is 19 Fantasy points in Week 2 at Atlanta, and I could see him in that range this week. But it's going to be tough against the Packers, who have allowed just one passing touchdown this season in matchups against Mitchell Trubisky, Kirk Cousins and Joe Flacco. Green Bay's pass rush has been great with five sacks in Week 1 at Chicago and six sacks in Week 3 against Denver, and the Packers should put plenty of pressure on Wentz. Green Bay also has four interceptions in three games. I would only start Wentz in two-quarterback leagues for Week 4.

Allen has done a nice job to start the season, and the Bills are doing great at 3-0. But Week 4 is a step up in competition against the Patriots after playing the Jets, Giants and Bengals in the first three weeks. New England's defense has been amazing, albeit against mediocre competition with Ben Roethlisberger, who might have already been hurt in Week 1, Ryan Fitzpatrick/Josh Rosen and Luke Falk. Those quarterbacks have combined for 560 passing yards, no touchdowns and six interceptions. Allen made one start at New England in Week 16 last year and passed for 217 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, as well as five carries for 30 yards, which is 13 Fantasy points. I wouldn't expect much better from Allen this week, even at home.

I expected Winston to play well in Week 3 against the Giants, and he did better than I hoped. After combining for 22 Fantasy points in two games against San Francisco and Carolina, Winston had 31 Fantasy points against the Giants with 380 passing yards, three touchdowns and one interception. But it's hard to trust Winston this week at the Rams, who have allowed one passing touchdown to Mayfield in three games, including matchups with the Panthers and Saints. I'm expecting him to struggle on the road, and Winston is only worth starting in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues.

It was great to see Trubisky play well in Week 3 at Washington, but I think his performance was as much about Washington's defense as it was about Trubisky. He scored a season-high 25 Fantasy points with 231 passing yards, three touchdowns and one interception, but he combined for 12 Fantasy points in his previous two games against Green Bay and Denver. In four career games against Minnesota, Trubisky has combined for just 634 passing yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions, as well as 83 rushing yards and one lost fumble. This is not a good week to trust Trubisky in one-quarterback leagues.

Brady has been great as a Fantasy quarterback, scoring at least 24 points in each outing this year against Pittsburgh, Miami and the Jets. He did that while reshuffling his receiving corps and also getting some new faces on the offensive line. This week, you might consider benching Brady for guys like Daniel Jones, Kyle Allen and Case Keenum since he could struggle against the Bills. This Buffalo defense has held Sam Darnold, Eli Manning and Andy Dalton to a combined 674 passing yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions, as well as a rushing score. Facing Brady is a tougher test, but he's struggled in Buffalo each of the past two years with an average of 291 passing yards, no touchdowns and one interception over that span. He could struggle again this week, and I would only start Brady in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues in Week 4.

Mack was initially my Start of the Week in Week 3 before he showed up last Wednesday with a calf injury and missed practice time. I pivoted to Mark Ingram, which worked out well since he scored 35 PPR points, but Mack also had a solid performance with 16 PPR points on 16 carries for 74 yards (4.6 yards per carry) and a touchdown, as well as two catches for 14 yards on three targets. He's now scored at least 16 PPR points in two of three games, and I like that he has two catches and three targets in consecutive weeks. I'd love to see more of him in the passing game, which could happen against the Raiders with T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) likely out. Mack should be the focal point of the offense, and the Colts should be able to run on the Raiders. He's a top 10 running back for Week 4.

McCoy is expected to go this week despite dealing with an injured ankle, which he played through in Week 3 against Baltimore but was unable to finish the game. Damien Williams (knee) is out, which means you should plan to use McCoy as at least a flex option. He did well against Baltimore despite limited playing time with eight carries for 54 yards (6.6 yards per carry) and a touchdown, along with three catches for 26 yards and a touchdown on three targets. The Lions have allowed three running backs to score touchdowns (David Johnson, Austin Ekeler and Jordan Howard), along with three guys gaining at least 125 total yards (Johnson, Ekeler and Miles Sanders). Let's hope McCoy scores and hits that total yards mark this week.

We'll see what happens this week if Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is able to return, which could alter this selection of Carson as a starting running back. But if Penny remains out, I'll buy what Seattle coach Pete Carroll said about sticking with Carson despite his three lost fumbles. Said Carroll, "because we believe in him, we're going to continue to show him that." Hopefully, Carson is done putting the ball on the ground. And hopefully he takes advantage of this matchup against the Cardinals like he did last year in Week 17 when he had 19 carries for 122 yards (6.4 yards per carry) and a touchdown, as well as one catch for 7 yards. If Penny plays, the Seahawks could turn to him and punish Carson for his fumbles. But if Penny is out then Carroll will continue to lean on Carson, and Fantasy players should as well.

You spent your top waiver claim or plenty of your FAAB budget to get him, and you should be able to start him this week against Washington. He obviously won't perform like Saquon Barkley (ankle), but he could prove to be a competent replacement option. For his career, Gallman has six games with double digits in carries, with most of them coming in his rookie campaign in 2017, before Barkley was in the NFL. In four of those games, he scored at least 11 PPR points. In three of those games, he also had at least five catches. So when he's gotten work, he's been successful, and he should get touches against Washington with Barkley out. Washington is also on the road after playing Monday night, so this could be a tired defense. Gallman should be at least a flex option this week in most leagues, but I expect him to finish in the top 20 running backs in PPR for Week 4.

I don't need to tell you to start Conner because you already know that. This is a vote of confidence for him as a must play despite his poor start. His best game this season is the one where he didn't finish in Week 2 against Seattle because he injured his knee. He scored 13 PPR points against the Seahawks, but he's yet to top 45 rushing yards in a game or 65 total yards. But the breakout game is coming this week against the Bengals, who have already allowed two running backs to score multiple touchdowns against them (Carson and Jeff Wilson) and five running backs to score at least 14 PPR points (Carson, Wilson, Raheem Mostert, Matt Breida and Frank Gore). In two games against Cincinnati in 2018, Conner had 34 carries for 175 yards (5.1 yards per carry) and two touchdowns, along with seven catches for 48 yards.

Burkhead might not be as good as he was in Week 3 against the Jets when James White (personal) was out, but I still like the situation for him against the Bills. We could see the Patriots start to lean more on Burkhead and less on Sony Michel with fullback James Develin out (more on that below), and Burkhead has scored at least 13 PPR points in two of three games this year. He has at least 68 total yards in all three games, along with 13 catches, so Burkhead is at least a solid flex against the Bills in PPR.

Thompson should be considered a must-start running back in PPR, and he's scored at least 13 PPR points in two of three games this year. He has 16 catches for 195 yards on 23 targets for the season, and he's a valuable weapon for Case Keenum when Washington is chasing points, which happens often. We'll see if that's the case this week, and you can consider using Adrian Peterson this week as a flex in non-PPR leagues. But I like Thompson as the best Washington running back, regardless of format, but he's a quality starter in PPR in Week 4.

Freeman has been surprisingly good the past two weeks against Chicago and Green Bay, and he's doing a nice job working in tandem with Phillip Lindsay. Against the Bears, Freeman had 14 PPR points with 102 total yards and five catches on seven targets. Then against the Packers, Freeman had 73 total yards and four catches on five targets, which resulted in 11 PPR points. I like Freeman as a flex option against the Jaguars this week at home.

I know, trusting a member of the Dolphins sounds risky, and it is. But in deeper PPR leagues, Drake might not be a bad play. He had a season-high 12 carries in Week 3 at Dallas in what was a competitive game in the first half, and he also has six targets in each of the past two outings against the Patriots and Cowboys. Against Dallas, Drake had 72 total yards, so hopefully things are starting to improve for him. The Chargers defense is good against the run, but I can see Drake scoring 10-14 PPR points this week, which would make him a flex option to consider.

Williams is worth using as a flex option with Damien Williams (knee) out, and I like what he did in relief of LeSean McCoy last week against Baltimore. He had nine carries for 62 yards (6.9 yards per carry), as well as five catches for 47 yards on five targets. McCoy would still be the better Fantasy option if he plays as expected, but if something happens to him between now and Sunday, Darrel Williams could be a star.

I hope at some point we see Cohen get on a hot streak and start producing like the running back we saw last season, especially in PPR. But he's been hard to trust this year, especially the past two games. While he scored 12 PPR points in Week 1 against Green Bay, he's combined for just seven PPR points in the past two games against Denver and Washington. Last year, in two games against Minnesota, he combined for 12 carries for 51 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and one touchdown, along with five catches for 31 yards. The Vikings have already allowed four running backs to catch at least three passes in a game this season, which could help Cohen, but he still has to contend with David Montgomery and even Mike Davis stealing touches. Cohen is a must-sit running back in non-PPR leagues and a flex at best in PPR.

I'd stay away from Barber and Ronald Jones if you can this week, but Jones has slightly more appeal given what we've seen through three games. While Barber has the best Fantasy performance of the two running backs this season with 15 PPR points in Week 2 at Carolina, Jones has looked better in Week 1 against San Francisco and Week 3 against the Giants. And in Week 2, Jones was dealing with an ankle injury, which limited his playing time. We'll see what happens this week against the Rams, but I expect Tampa Bay to be chasing points and abandoning the ground game early. We also could see more of Dare Ogunbowale on passing downs, which makes it even more messy for the Buccaneers backfield.

We touted Gore quite a bit last week with Devin Singletary (hamstring) out against the Bengals, and he delivered with 14 carries for 76 yards (5.4 yards per carry) and a touchdown, as well as two catches for 13 yards on two targets. Singletary could be out again, but Gore should still get the majority of the touches against the Patriots. I doubt we'll see Gore score at least 15 PPR points for the third week in a row, and New England's defense has already shut down Conner, Kenyan Drake and Le'Veon Bell in three games this year. Gore is at best a flex option in most leagues, although I would plan to sit him if you can against the Patriots.

Johnson is like Cohen in that he's impossible to play in non-PPR leagues, and he's been frustrating in PPR formats as well. After he scored 12 PPR points in Week 1 at New Orleans, Johnson has combined for seven PPR points in his past two games against Jacksonville and the Chargers. Carlos Hyde played more snaps than Johnson, and he's the better running back for the Texans now, especially in non-PPR leagues. The Panthers are among the league leaders in fewest receptions allowed to running backs this year with 10, although six of them came last week from David Johnson. Still, given what Duke Johnson has done of late, he's not someone to trust in Week 4, especially in non-PPR leagues.

Sanders is coming off his best game of the season in Week 3 against Detroit with 13 carries for 53 yards (4.1 yards per carry), along with two catches for 73 yards on four targets. He did lose a fumble, which hopefully won't hurt him long-term, and he still shared snaps evenly with Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles. That likely won't change, especially this week if the Eagles are chasing points as expected against the Packers and continue to use Sproles. I'm confident Sanders will continue to see his role expand in the future, but I wouldn't plan on using him as anything more than a flex option this week.

The Boston Globe did a great breakdown of what losing fullback James Develin (neck) means for Michel. As Ben Volin wrote in the story, "Michel's instructions were clear: just run behind Develin, and hit the same hole that he hits." The story also indicates that Michel doesn't get much playing time without a fullback, and we'll see what the Patriots do with Develin's replacement in Jakob Johnson. This is bad news for Michel, who has little involvement in the passing game and is sharing playing time with Rex Burkhead and James White. Michel has scored in each of the past two games against Miami and the Jets, but he's struggled against the Steelers in Week 1 (one PPR point) and against the Jets (seven PPR points). He's still a threat to score, which keeps him in play as at least a flex in non-PPR leagues. But in PPR leagues, I would bench Michel this week at Buffalo if you can.

Fitzgerald has been great so far this season, and I also like Christian Kirk as a starting Fantasy option, especially in PPR. Fitzgerald has scored at least 14 PPR points three games in a row, and he has two touchdowns over that span. In three of his past four games against Seattle, Fitzgerald has also scored at least 13 PPR points. Kirk also has scored at least 15 PPR points in his past two games, and he's still looking for his first touchdown of the season. Maybe it happens this week, but both Cardinals are worth starting in Week 4.

The Woods breakout game is coming this week, which should coincide with Jared Goff having a solid performance. Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks have been excellent so far this year, especially the past two weeks. Kupp has scored at least 17 PPR points in games against New Orleans and Cleveland, while Cooks has at least 16 PPR points over that span. Both were quiet in Week 1 at Carolina when Woods had his only productive game of the year with 16 PPR points, but he's combined for just 13 PPR points in his past two outings. The good news is he still had eight targets against Cleveland, and I expect him to do well against Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers have allowed four receivers to score at least 11 PPR points in their past two games, so Woods, Kupp and Cooks all have the chance to go off at home.

In his first start with Daniel Jones, Shepard went off with seven catches for 100 yards and a touchdown on a team-high nine targets in Week 3 at Tampa Bay. It was great to see after Shepard missed Week 2 with a concussion. He should again be fed the ball, along with Evan Engram, since Saquon Barkley (ankle) is hurt, and Golden Tate (suspension) is still out for one more week. Shepard has two touchdowns in four career games against Washington, and seven receivers already have at least 12 PPR points against the Redskins this year. Shepard should be considered a top 15 Fantasy receiver in Week 4.

Moore saw a significant drop in targets in the first start for Kyle Allen in place of Cam Newton (foot). He was averaging 12 targets per game heading into Week 3 with Newton, and then he had two targets at Arizona with Allen. Luckily, Moore finished with a 52-yard touchdown on his lone catch (he also had a 12-yard run), but I don't expect his targets to stay in single digits, especially against the Texans in Week 4. Houston has already allowed five receivers to either score or gain at least 100 receiving yards, which makes it a good week to still trust Moore and Curtis Samuel in the majority of leagues.

Brown had a down game in Week 3 at Kansas City with just two catches for 49 yards, but he still had nine targets. That's 22 targets in his past two games, and I expect him to rebound this week against the Browns, who could once again be without cornerbacks Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring). Both were out in Week 3 against the Rams, and it worked out well for Kupp and Cooks. In Brown's lone home game against the Cardinals in Week 2, he had eight catches for 86 yards on 13 targets, and I'm expecting another quality outing this week against Cleveland.

I'm still going to rank him third among Kansas City's receivers behind Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson, but that's not a bad thing. Hardman is worth using as a high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. In two games without Tyreek Hill (collarbone), Hardman has six catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets against Oakland and Baltimore. I'd love to see more targets and catches for Hardman, but he's clearly been productive with limited chances. That's the only reason he's not a must-start option in all leagues.

Jones had his best game of the season in Week 3 at Philadelphia with six catches for 101 yards and a touchdown on nine targets, and the Lions should be chasing points this week against the Chiefs. That should lead to good things for Jones and Kenny Golladay. While Golladay is a must-start receiver in all formats, I like Jones as high-end No. 3 receiver in this matchup. Kansas City has already allowed four receivers to score at least 14 PPR points in three games this year.

The Cardinals secondary isn't good with cornerback Patrick Peterson (suspension) out, and five receivers have already scored at least 12 PPR points against them this year. Metcalf only scored eight PPR points in Week 3 against New Orleans, but he scored at least 12 PPR points in his first two outings against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Tyler Lockett and Will Dissly should play well at Arizona this week, but I like Metcalf as a high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all formats.

Richardson is coming off a strong game in Week 3 against Chicago, and he has a great matchup in Week 4 at the Giants. He's worth taking a flier on in deeper leagues if you need a third receiver this week, especially with Terry McLaurin (hamstring) banged up. Richardson had eight catches for 83 yards and a touchdown on nine targets against the Bears, and he also had three catches for 16 yards and a touchdown on three targets against Dallas in Week 2. The Giants allow the most Fantasy points to opposing receivers heading into Week 4.

The Dolphins are a horror show right now, but Williams might be their best offensive player, even with Albert Wilson (calf) expected to play. Williams has scored at least 10 PPR points in three games in a row, and in the first start with Josh Rosen in Week 3 at Dallas, Williams had a season-high 12 targets for four catches and 68 yards. He dropped a touchdown, but he should continue to see a hefty amount of targets with Miami always chasing points each week. He's worth using as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver in Week 4 against the Chargers, who have allowed four receivers to score at least 12 PPR points this season.

The run-heavy offense for the Vikings has been a huge detriment to Diggs and Adam Thielen, with Diggs suffering the most. Through three games, he's combined for just six catches for 101 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets, and he's failed to score double digits in PPR points in any game (he fumbled in Week 2 despite scoring a touchdown at Green Bay). Diggs does have a great track record against Chicago with a touchdown against the Bears in three games in a row, but his production this season makes him difficult to trust. I would only use him as a No. 3 receiver in deeper three-receiver leagues in Week 4.

Through three games, Green Bay has allowed just one touchdown to a receiver, with Diggs scoring in Week 2. Jeffery scored twice in Week 1 against Washington in the lone game he was able to finish this year, but he should struggle against this secondary.

Robinson has been a solid Fantasy receiver this season in PPR, scoring at least 12 points in that format in two of three games. But he's failed to find the end zone, and this week he has a tough matchup against Minnesota's Xavier Rhodes. Robinson has faced the Vikings twice in his career, and he's combined for four catches for 56 yards on 10 targets on those outings. Minnesota has allowed five touchdowns to receivers already in three games, but I'm betting against Robinson having a big game in this matchup, even at home. He's a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best in Week 4.

In Week 3 against Cincinnati, Brown was held to nine Fantasy points, and I would expect him to be in that range again in Week 4.

In the past two games, the Rams have held Michael Thomas and Odell Beckham to a combined 16 catches for 145 yards and no touchdowns on 22 targets. Both scored at least 12 PPR points, but the expectations are higher for players of this caliber, which includes Evans. The Rams have yet to allow a receiver to score this year, and Evans should be treated as more of a No. 3 Fantasy option than a must-start receiver in most leagues. I like Chris Godwin slightly better, but this isn't an ideal matchup against the Rams on the road.

Dissly is hot coming into this game with at least 18 PPR points in his past two outings, and he should be considered a top five Fantasy tight end this week because of the matchup.

Witten didn't take advantage of the matchup against Miami in Week 3 as many hoped, but he still played well enough with three catches for 54 yards on four targets. He hasn't seen more than four targets in any game this season, but he does have two touchdowns and should still be a factor in the offense with Michael Gallup (knee) out. He faces New Orleans in Week 4, and the Saints just allowed Dissly to have six catches for 62 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 3. Witten is again worth starting in deeper leagues.

Doyle and Eric Ebron should benefit if T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) is out, and I like Doyle better in PPR, with Ebron better in non-PPR leagues. Through three games, Doyle only has seven catches for 87 yards and no touchdowns on nine targets, while Ebron has seven catches for 80 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. I wouldn't have interest in either one if Hilton is healthy enough to play, but if he's out then Doyle and Ebron can be low-end starters, depending on the format.

Hopefully, once Drew Brees (thumb) is healthy, we'll see the best of Cook to close the season. But for now, with Teddy Bridgewater under center, you can't start Cook in Week 4 against Dallas.

Graham went from 12 PPR points in Week 1 at Chicago to no points in each of the past two games against Minnesota and Denver. There's no way to trust him in Week 4 against the Eagles on Thursday night. Philadelphia did allow a touchdown to Vernon Davis in Week 1, but since then the Eagles have held Austin Hooper and T.J. Hockenson to five catches for 35 yards and no scores on 10 targets. Graham has a lot to prove before Fantasy managers can trust him again in the majority of leagues.

The Steelers secondary struggled against Dissly in Week 2 when the Seattle tight end had five catches for 50 yards and two touchdowns on five targets. George Kittle had six catches for 57 yards on eight targets against Pittsburgh in Week 3, but I don't expect Eifert to play well in this game. He scored in Week 2 against San Francisco, but he has only nine catches for 54 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets this year. He also has just one touchdown in his past five games against the Steelers coming into this game on Monday night.

Howard was more involved in the offense in Week 3 against the Giants as expected with three catches for 66 yards on four targets, but nine PPR points is his season high. He's yet to find the end zone, and he only has seven catches for 98 yards on nine targets for the season. I can't trust him in Week 4 at the Rams. In three games, the Rams have allowed a touchdown to Demetrius Harris last week at Cleveland, but they also held Greg Olsen and Jared Cook to a combined six catches for 61 yards on 16 targets. Howard is a low-end starting option at best, but I don't expect him to play in Week 4.

Packers (vs. PHI) - 12.8 projected points

The Packers defense is the reason the team is 3-0, and they have been excellent on that side of the ball. Against Chicago, Minnesota and Denver, Green Bay has 12 sacks, four interceptions, four fumble recoveries and has allowed just 35 total points. In Carson Wentz's one road game so far this year, he had two interceptions at Atlanta. He's also been sacked three times in each of the past two games against the Falcons and Lions. The Packers DST is one of my favorite plays this week at any position.

Sleepers
  • Steelers (vs. CIN): Andy Dalton has five turnovers on the season (three interceptions and two fumbles), and he's been sacked 11 times in three games. The Steelers defense hasn't been great, but that unit does have two interceptions and five fumbles in the past two games against Seattle and San Francisco. I expect Pittsburgh's defense to be potentially dominant on Monday night.
  • Seahawks (at ARI): Kyler Murray has already been sacked 16 times in three games, and he has three interceptions as well. While the Seahawks defense hasn't been great, this should be a get-right game, even on the road. The Seahawks DST is a good streaming option in Week 4.
  • Colts (vs. OAK): Derek Carr has been sacked seven times in his past two games against Kansas City and Minnesota, and the Colts had eight sacks in their first two games against the Chargers and Titans. I like the Colts DST as a flier in Week 4 at home against the Raiders, who are playing back-to-back road games.

Titans (at ATL) – 6.2 projected points

The Titans DST was a huge letdown in Week 3 at Jacksonville. Tennessee had no sacks or turnovers against the Jaguars, and the Titans DST scored just four Fantasy points. Matt Ryan does have six interceptions on the season, but he's been sacked just once in his past two games against Philadelphia and Indianapolis. I don't like this spot for the Titans DST on the road for the second game in a row.

Slye had a down game in Week 3 at Arizona compared to his first two outings. He only scored eight Fantasy points because he made one field goal with five extra points. Prior to that, Slye had six field goals in his first two games against the Rams and Tampa Bay. I expect him to get back on track as a Fantasy asset in Week 4 at Houston since the Texans are among the league leaders in Fantasy points allowed to kickers.

Gonzalez is having a nice season so far through three games. He's made all nine of his field goals, as well as being perfect on three extra points. He's scored at least nine Fantasy points in all three games this year, and Seattle has allowed Randy Bullock and Chris Boswell to make multiple field goals in two of three games. Gonzalez is worth starting in all leagues.

Facing the Cardinals has been a good thing for a couple of kickers already this season, and I'm hopeful Myers follows suit in Week 4. Matt Prater in Week 1 and Justin Tucker in Week 2 both made multiple field goals and extra points against Arizona, and Myers is due for a big performance on the year. He's yet to make a field goal this season on just one attempt, although he does have 10 extra points. His time is coming, and this is a good week to trust him.

Rosas has only made two field goals this season on three attempts, although he does have seven extra points. I expect the Giants to move the ball against Washington at home, which should give Rosas plenty of scoring chances. He also has made two field goals in three games in a row against Washington.

Pineiro is dealing with a knee injury, which could be the reason for his down game in Week 3 at Washington. He missed his first field goal at Washington and scored just seven Fantasy points, which came after he had 15 Fantasy points at Denver. The Vikings have yet to allow a field goal this season on just one attempt, including matchups against Matt Bryant, Mason Crosby and Daniel Carlson. I'd stay away from Pineiro in most Fantasy leagues in Week 4.
