Week 4 Quick Hits

Recapping the Week 4 action with a Dynasty spin. By Pat Scerra


The man who rushed for the most yards this past week (141) was none other than Chris Johnson! By the way, he was running against a stingy Texans defense. It gives Dynasty owners some hope that he can again return to his RB1 form. Or it gives you a small window to try to sell him if someone is looking to buy the rebound. He's a risky Dynasty player moving forward, but if you own him, you might want to ride it out.

Dez Bryant finally caught for more than 100 yards and was targeted 13 times, and he wasn't even on the same page with Tony Romo the whole game! Imagine if they were? They are two of the most frustrating players in fantasy, with neither fully tapping into their full potential.

Brandon Bolden went undrafted this past April and just ran for 137 yards on 16 carries. Dynasty value is going up, even while splitting the carries with RB2 Stevan Ridley, who also rushed for over 100 yards. It will be interesting to see how these two perform over the coming weeks. Shane Vereen seems to be on the outside looking in at the moment. Monitor closely.

A.J. Green is a BEAST. Outside of Megatron, there is no receiver in the game we wouldn't take in a Dynasty league.

Roddy White and Julio Jones take turns being BEASTS. Jones is the premier Dynasty talent to own, but Roddy is far from done, especially with single coverage.

Willis McGahee shows no sign of slowing down in Denver, even with nagging injuries and turning the magic 30 years old in 3 weeks.  He is clearly ahead of young promising rookie Ronnie Hilman and Lance Ball. Long term, Hillman has a real shot at RB2 value.

The league leader in receiving yards with 455 is...Brian Hartline. He is also second in targets with 48 and has shown a nice rapport with Ryan Tannehill thus far. They could make a nice duo this season, but it remains to be seen if Hartline can sustain his level of play. The only other pass catcher in Miami with value (mostly PPR) is the limited upside but solid Davone Bess.

It could be Tebow time in New York any game now. With Santonio Holmes out for the season, the Jets have nothing to lose by switching from one inaccurate QB to another who at least can pick up chunks of yardage on the ground.

Ryan Mathews meet Jackie Battle. He will be getting more carries than you for a few weeks, but that makes for an excellent buy low opportunity. Mathews has trouble staying healthy and fumbles a bit too much, but he's electric.

With the return of Jerome Simpson, Christian Ponder now has a deep threat to go with Percy Harvin. Simpson has nice upside and it is worth noting he saw more targets than Harvin this week.

Nobody was scrutinized more in the preseason than Kevin Kolb. Now he has more TD passes through 4 weeks than..Matt Schaub, Cam Newton, and Phillip Rivers. He has the same amount of TD's as Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Eli Manning, and Joe Flacco. Great upside to be a QB2, even a QB1 if his play continues.
