Five Fantasy Football Sleepers For Week 4

September 29, 2017
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes as the Packer beat the Chicago Bears, 35-14, on "Thursday Night Football." The game was a costly one for the Packers, though, as wide receivers Ty Montgomery and Davante Adams and running back Jamaal Williams left with injuries. Packers running back Aaron Jones is now the top waiver-wire claim for Week 5.

Here are this week's sleepers.

1. Bilal Powell, Running Back, New York Jets

Fantasy football is a strange game sometimes. Powell was dropped in many leagues after doing virtually nothing for the first two weeks and taking a backseat to Matt Forte, but now Forte looks like he'll miss Week 4, so Powell should be the next man up and see a heavy workload.

2. Chris Carson, Running Back, Seattle Seahawks

He faces the Indianapolis Colts, who have yielded four rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs through three weeks. Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise will also miss this game, making Carson a possibility in the passing game as well. He is a top 15 running back for me this week.

3. Will Fuller, Wide Receiver, Houston Texans

He is back a tad sooner than expected. Fuller is probably sitting on many waiver wires as he returns vs. a Tennessee Titans team giving up the fifth-most passing yards through this season. The Titans have also given up seven receiving touchdowns, so a big play is possible for Fuller if you are in a pinch this week.

4. Jared Cook, Tight End, Oakland Raiders

Tight end has been a minefield in 2017, but Cook has seen an average of six targets a week so far. This week, Oakland faces a tough Denver Broncos defense, but it's a defense that should be focused on wide receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, leaving Cook some room and hopefully more targets.

5. Paul Richardson, Wide Receiver, Seattle Seahawks

I am not trying to pick on the Colts, but their defense just isn't good. Richardson has scored in each of the past two games and should be in line for another touchdown this week. Helping Richardson's cause in Week 4 is an injury to Doug Baldwin, who I would expect to play but maybe not be at 100 percent.
