With the first quarter of the NFL regular season already behind us, we were reminded this week that we still have a long way to go before we are out of the woods regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. An outbreak within the Tennessee Titans organization led to their game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers being rescheduled, and another game, between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs, had to be pushed back to Monday night after Patriots star quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19.
Despite these setbacks, Week 4 might’ve been the most action-packed week of football we’ve seen yet! Ten out of twenty-four teams scored 30 or more points, leading to some lofty fantasy football totals across the board this week. Individual standouts include Dak Prescott (502 yards, 4 touchdowns), Joe Mixon (181 total yards, 3 touchdowns), and Odell Beckham Jr. (154 total yards, 3 touchdowns).
Unfortunately, the injury bug keeps biting, leading to holes on rosters that must be filled. Not only that, but the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions are both out of Week 5 thanks to their bye week, so there’s likely an even greater need for quality player additions to your fantasy football rosters.
But fear not, we have you covered! This week, we’ll deliver not just three, but FOUR names you need to know as we head into Week 5. We’re charged up to bring you who’s UPNXT this week!
BONUS: Hang around until the end for a quick recap of last week’s picks!
