Not all league hosting sites provide fantasy football player projections each week, so we are here to help. Weekly projections may help you decide who to start between two players at the same position, or who to start at your flex spot in your lineup. Projections can help you in deciding who to start in your FanDuel DFS cash games and tournaments each week, as well.
Week 4 Projections
Note: New England and Tennessee are on a bye this week.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is coming off a 5 touchdown performance on Monday Night football and faces a San Francisco 49er defense that has given up points in bunches over the last two games, so expect another excellent fantasy day for the best QB in the game.
Panthers QB Cam Newton isn't throwing for a lot of yards, but has passed for five touchdowns and scored two on the ground through three games. I expect him to continue to run the ball in the red zone and wouldn't be surprised to see him score 6-8 rushing touchdowns this season.
Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is enjoying a rebirth season in 2015, and he has developed some kind of rapport with WR Larry Fitzgerald in the early going.
Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell may be asked to carry more of the offensive load with QB Ben Roethlisberger out for at least the next 4 weeks, and possibly longer. Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will be looking to build on his solid effort on Monday Night football where he scored three times in the Chiefs loss to the Packers. Charles had a nice bounce back game after his two fumbles in Week 2.
Falcons WR Julio Jones is battling Steelers Antonio Brown as the top wide receiver in the NFL and had a huge game in Week 3 vs the stout Cowboys defense. He has been targeted a total of 46 times already this season and has put up three consecutive 100+ yard games and has scored 4 touchdowns.
All that said, numberFIre likes Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins a bit more than Jones in Week 4. Hopkins ranks fifth in targets this season with 38, catching 24 of those targets for 252 yards and three scores, so he is well on his way to a breakout season.
