Week Four Rankings
Week Four Rankings
Michael Vick – Vick finds himself near the top of rankings once again this week as the Eagles head to Denver in what should be a shoot-out. The Eagles should lose this game handily but should see plenty of garbage time production. Hopefully the Broncos don’t cause too many fumbles or picks which could tarnish Vick’s potential fantasy production.
Josh Gordon – After exploding in his season debut with 10 receptions, 141 yards and a touchdown Josh Gordon finds himself ranked as a top 20 option for the first bye week. The Browns may be showcasing Gordon for a trade or perhaps Hoyer knows that Gordon is the Browns only real threat at receiver, whatever the case Gordon’s fantasy arrow is pointing up.
Cecil Shorts – Shorts’ fantasy value took a hit with the news that Blaine Gabbert would be re-inserted into the starting line-up. Shorts still carries WR3 upside but has a flex2 floor with Gabbert under center. We currently have Shorts ranked at number 29 in our live week four rankings.
Isaiah Pead – Isaiah Pead got a big boost in the rankings after a strong week three and finds himself on the flex radar for week four. Richardson is back at practice but neither back has exactly ran with the starting job giving them both flex value in deeper leagues. Those invested early in Richardson will want to target Pead one way or another before his price tag goes up after he potentially steals the job.
Trent Richardson – Trent Richardson got a healthy dynasty league fantasy value boost with his move to the Colts, but his redraft value took a short term hit as he has to learn a new system and now has a competent running mate for the first time in his career. Ahmad Bradshaw will continue to see a near even time split for the time being causing Richardson to remain a RB2 this week with Bradshaw coming in as a WR3/flex option.
Rob Gronkowski – Rob Gronkowski is finally expected back this week and finds himself immediately ranked as a top two option. The Patriots are desperate for his play-making skills and will pepper him with targets between the twenties and in the red zone as well. Gronk is also a very strong blocker in both the run and pass games and will give the team a boost in those departments as well.
Mark Barron – Barron is locked and loaded this season and has been among the most consistent options at the defensive back position. He will continue to be tackle monster this season for the Tampa Bay defense with Dashon Goldson providing deep cover when he plays in the box. Barron is ranked as our number one defensive back for the week.
