Week 4: All In Plays

Updated: Oct 6, 2020


* The Song I am ALL IN on this Week: (Not Mad Enough - Smith & Myers) *


Aaron Rodgers: Rodgers the last three weeks looks as though he's sending a message to this Green Bay front office, and that is I have plenty left in the tank. Rodgers currently is fantasy football's QB6 averaging 24.49 fantasy points a game. This week he faces an Atlanta team that just bleeds fantasy points and production to opposing quarterbacks. This Atlanta defense is allowing 34.5 fantasy points per game to the position, which is the most by any defense in the league. Even with Lazard out (core muscle surgery) I am All In on Rodgers. I just get the feeling that we see his favorite target, Davante Adams, return to the line up this week. Even if he doesn't I feel the tight ends and MVS will be all he needs to shred this bottom of the barrel pass defense. (28 FP)


Ryan Fitzpatrick: Earlier this week when I began laying out this article I had Baker Mayfield slotted here. However, with the latest news on OBJ being banged up and limited at practice, with a back injury, it was enough to push me from being fully in on Baker in week four. Instead I am feeling a bit magical this week, perhaps from Jerry Jeudy's first touchdown last night, eat it Super Troopers, aka Tom and Ian. Anyways, since I'm feeling magical I have no other choice but to insert Ryan FitzMagic into my ALL IN plays for week four. The bearded one gets a very juicy matchup this week in South Beach, as the red hot Seahawks come to town. The Seahawk defense continues to be a quarterbacks dream, as they are allowing the second most fantasy points (30.3 FP) to the position through the first three weeks of the season. The Dolphins will have no choice but to air it out in this projected high scoring game, which bodes well for Fitz, so fire him up. (23.3 FP)

Devin Singletary: Singletary showed us last week that he can be a great fantasy asset with Zack Moss sidelined. There is a chance that Moss returns to action this Sunday, as he has logged limited practices this week, however the team may take their time with the rookie and ultimately sit him one more week, which I foresee happening. This would bode really well for Singletary this week, as the team takes their unbeaten selves out to the Nevada desert to take on the (2-1) Las Vegas Raiders. Singletary would be in line for a nice work load here, as last week without Moss, he was on the field for 88% of the teams offensive snaps. You couple that opportunity for Singletary, with a defense that has been gashed by opposing running backs through the first three weeks of the season, allowing an average of 44.5 fantasy points per game to the position, what you are left with is a golden opportunity to produce. For these reasons I am ALL IN on Singletary in week four. (18.6 FP)


Dalvin Cook: Dalvin Cook is a no brainer most weeks, as he is a key component to this Vikings team, who is still searching for that first win this season. This week Cook and the Vikings travel to Houston to take on the winless Texans. The Texans offer Cook a very nice spot to blow up this week, as this unit is allowing the 4th most fantasy points a game to the position (31.4 FP). Cooks role on the team and his matchup have me paying up this week in DFS, thus making me ALL IN for week four. (28.6 FP)


Randall Cobb: Staying in that same game I am ALL IN on Cobb for week four. Cobb led this Texans team in production last week, and over the past two weeks has finished with double digit fantasy points. This week Will Fuller is questionable to play after suffering yet another hamstring injury on Thursday. This type of injury late in the week usually forces a player, especially a wide out, to miss the weeks game. This is a buzz kill for Fuller owners, but a blessing for Cobb owners. This week the Texans face a Vikings defense that is allowing the 4th most fantasy points per game to the position (46.9 FP). Give me that action all day. (5.6 FP)

Amari Cooper: This one pains me as I am a big time Amari Cooper hater, but I have to admit he has been very good this season. Currently Cooper is fantasy football's WR11, averaging 17.2 fantasy points per game. Cooper leads this star studded Dallas receiving group in targets, receptions, and yards. This week Cooper gets to take on a Browns team that has allowed 42.2 fantasy points per game to opposing wide outs, which is the sixth most generous. The Browns are tough against the run meaning Dak will have to air it out, which means Cooper should be in line for yet another healthy day for fantasy owners. So reluctantly I am forced to be ALL IN on old sour puss. (33.4 FP)


TJ Hockenson: The second year tight end has been very solid this season averaging 12 FP per game, which has him sitting as fantasy football's TE9. This week Hockenson has a beautiful matchup to exploit as he and the Lions take on the Saints at home. The Saints defense has been slow out of the gate, and have been especially vulnerable to the tight end position. The Saints are allowing the most fantasy points to the position (27.3 FP) per game. Hockenson is averaging a 15.7% target share thus far, which is over 5 targets per game, which I feel grows this week against this weak Saints defense. For this reason I am ALL IN on Hockenson. (10.9 FP)


George Kittle: Finally.... The people's tight end HAS COME BACK.... TO..... Our Fantasy Line Ups. I was channeling my inner Rock there with that one, but it's true as it appears Kittle is good to go for Sunday Night. What a time to return as well, as he has a juicy matchup waiting for him to feed on in this terrible Eagles linebacker group. This unit has been decimated by the position through the first three weeks, with the exception of Drew Sample last week, who gave all our DFS lineups a big FU. We can't forget though that this is the defense who gave up three scores to Tyler Higbee in Week 2. With Mullens looking like a solid ball distributer, and the team lacking healthy ball catchers, Kittle should feast in this one. I am ALL IN on Kittle going against a defense allowing such nice production to the position and you should be as well. (40.1 FP)
