Week 4 Players to Add

In the ever changing world of Fantasy football, it is vital to know what is happening around the NFL and what effect that has on its players.   For example, 4 years ago, many people thought Tashard Choice was a valuable fantasy sleeper and could challenge for carries in Dallas.  Well, that never happened, however, now Choice is a incredibly value fantasy addition with C.J. Spiller going down.  Can the same be said for Daniel Thomas?

Week 4 players to add:

Jerome Simpson:  Back from a three game suspension for violating the NFL drug policy, Simpson will step in right away as the number two receiver in Minnesota.  Simpson is the perfect counterpart to the Vikings #1, Percy Harvin.  As Christian Ponder continues to develop, Simpson and he should be able to connect on a few down field strikes a game.  Pick him up now and stash him away, in two weeks you’ll have a diamond (thanks Ferris for allowing the butchered quote).

Armon Binns:  Binns has shown solid hands, above average route running and has the faith of Andy Dalton.  He has solidified himself as the number 2 man in Cincinnati and that should continue.  As long as the Bengals are airing out the ball, expect Binns to stay on his 10 – 12 point per week performances.

Brandon Gibson:  The Chicago Bears shut down Gibson, holding him to 2 catches.  Do not let that deter you from the production level you can expect most weeks out of Gibson.  Remember, Brandon was being covered by Tim Jennings all game, who’s Tim Jennings, you asked?  He’s the league leader in interceptions with 4 in 3 games.

Kyle Rudolph:  Now that Christian Ponder has found a bit of his stride (leading the league in completion percentage), Rudolph has slid in as a favorite target, especially in the red-zone.

Kevin Kolb:  He’s not a fantasy stud QB, but Kevin Kolb does have his upsides.  He’s playing with a very strong defense that can force turnovers and give him multiple shots at short field TD throws.  He’s more athletic than people give him credit for, allowing for a couple sneak TD runs like we saw against New England.  He’s not a stud, but a quality spot starting QB with several opponents remaining that are allowing good fantasy production at the QB spot.

Alshon Jeffrey:  Alshon has shown great route running ability, is excellent at screening off defenders and has superb hands.  Right now the only problem with the Rookie pass catcher, is his quarterback is throwing very few completions.  As the Bears offense works out its glitches, Cutler will need to use Jeffrey more, which can lead to Alshon receiving 6 – 10 targets a game.

Tashard Choice:  Its a risky play to have any Buffalo Bills running backs on your squad this year.  First Fred Jackson goes down, then C.J. Spiller, and each time the next back in line has produced.  Choice was once considered a solid running back with Fantasy potential, however since Felix Jones entered the Cowboys locker room Choice has had the tag of under-achiever.  The Bills offensive line is excellent in the running game, and a more powerful back like Choice could exploit it for 2 or 3 solid performances prior to Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller returning.  He’s not a long term option, but a quality pick up for a few weeks.

Tennessee Titans Defense:  Yes they did just give up 41 points to the Lions, but its how the Titans put up 44 points that is more valuable.  Their special teams units have been able to make big gains frequently during the first 3 games the season, and the defense has play-makers that can return fumbles and picks for points.  They go against a moderately weak offensive schedule and should be able to put up big points scattered over the rest of the season.

Daniel Thomas:  Yes, you did read, Daniel Thomas, on our drop list.  And we stand by that idea.  However, Thomas is the perfect handcuff for Reggie Bush owners and as such is worth a pick up.  The severity of Bush’s knee injury is unknown as of now, but if he’s to miss three or four weeks, Bush owners may get desperate, which will allow you to take advantage of what limited Fantasy value Thomas actually has. – UPDATE – Yeah, Drop Daniel Thomas, Reggie will be fine it looks like and Lamar Miller will be the number two.
