Week Four Picks: WRs & TEs

There were some outstanding performances by WRs and TEs in week 3. Julio Jones, A.J. Green, Steve Smith Sr., Greg Olsen and Rob Gronkowski all BALLED last week. Let’s take a look at the WRs & TEs that I like for week 4.

 

WRs

Julio Jones vs. Houston Texans

Julio Jones has been unstoppable so far this season, leading the NFL with 34 receptions while also adding 4 TDs. Houston comes to town with J.J. Watt and that’s about it on defense. Houston’s defensive backs have given up 6 TD receptions already in this young season. Bottom line, I’m taking Jones against anyone with the way he’s playing.

A.J. Green vs. K.C. Chiefs

Green is coming off a monster game against Baltimore with 10 receptions for 227 yards and 2 TDs. K.C. is the 28th-ranked pass defense that has surrendered a league-high 10 TDs on the season. Green has to be salivating with this match up.

Keenan Allen vs. Cleveland Browns

Cleveland allowed Derek Carr and Amari Cooper to have their way with them last week. Allen was the lone bright spot for San Diego in their loss to Minnesota in week 3 with 12 catches for 133 yards and 2 TDs. Cleveland travels across the country with a banged-up secondary making this an even bigger reason to play Allen.

 

TEs

Martellus Bennett vs. Oakland Raiders

Forget about Bennett’s stats on the season coming into this game. TEs have had BIG days against Oakland. Tyler Eifert and Crockett Gilmore both had 2 TD game’s versus the Raiders. Even if Jimmy Clausen makes his 2nd start for the injured Jay Cutler, Bennett has to figure prominently in the game plan.

Jason Witten vs. N.O. Saints

Witten probably looked at the game that Greg Olsen (8 rec. 134 yds. 2 TDs) had last week against the Saints and started smiling! Brandon Weeden is not the deep-ball thrower Tony Romo is, therefore expect him to find Witten often in the intermediate area of the field.

 

 

 

 

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
