QB Joe Burrow (CIN)
Burrow has lit it up through three weeks, however has been held back by his offensive line. Burrow plays a decent Jacksonville defense, which is likely his easiest matchup so far this year. Burrow is still looking for his first win, and might find it with a big performance vs the Jags.
RB Austin Ekeler (LAC)
Ekeler has heated up ever since Herbert took over at QB for LA. Ekeler has regained his magic from last season, and is raking in the touches and receptions. Ekeler can destroy teams through the air and on the ground, making him a very versatile fantasy player.
RB Mike Davis (CAR)
Mike Davis broke out last week when he destroyed LAC for 23.1 points. Until Christian McCaffrey returns, Davis will find himself as arguably the centerpiece of Carolina’s offense. Davis thrived in McCaffrey’s role last week, and will try to again vs Arizona.
QB Kirk Cousins (MIN)
Cousins is off to a slow start this season, and will face a surprisingly good passing defense this week vs Houston. While Houston has a solid pass defense, they lack a great rushing defense. With a great RB in Dalvin Cook, the Vikings will likely be running much more than passing this Sunday.
RB Joshua Kelley (LAC)
Kelley was off to a nice start to the season with 25.3 points over the first two weeks, however has slowed downs since. Kelley is starting to be blown out in the race for touches in the Charger’s backfield by Austin Ekeler. Ekeler had a great week 3, and figures to have another good week 4. Kelley is quickly seeing his role diminish, and soon could find himself dropping of lots of fantasy rosters.
WR Marquise Brown (BAL)
Marquise Brown had a mediocre week 3 with just 2 receptions for 14 yards. The Ravens will face a good Washington pass defense in week 4, which could shut down Brown. Brown typically relies on explosive plays to get the majority of his points, however this Washington defense has done a great job of limiting explosive plays so far this season.
