Five Fantasy Football Sleepers For Week 4

September 27, 2019
Last week I asked, "Can we get a good ole 34-31 Thursday night game just one time?" Well, 34-27 will do, but did you run up against running back Jordan Howard or receiver Davante Adams? Well you may need some upside this week, so …

Here are 5 players I expect to have solid fantasy days who may be slightly off your radar:

1. Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions

Detroit-Kansas City is the highest point total of the week (over/under), and Stafford has been terrific the last two weeks. We could see a shootout with Stafford throwing more than 50 times.

2. Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins

It's hard to trust or start and Dolphin right now, but the game script seems to favor 15 to 20 touches for Drake as the Dolphins try to keep up with the Chargers.

3. Kyle Allen, QB, Carolina Panthers

I keep trying to move Allen up my rankings this week, but all the QB matchups are so good this week. Allen faces a Houston Texans team that is in the bottom third against the pass so far this year. Do I expect four touchdowns again? No, but 275 yards and two touchdowns is possible.

4. Will Dissly, TE, Seattle Seahawks

Dissly should not be considered a sleeper at this point after the last two weeks, but I want to list him here as any tight end going against the Arizona Cardinals is a MUST PLAY. The Cardinals have given up over 300 yards and four touchdowns to tight ends the past three weeks. 

5. Chris Thompson, RB, Washington Redskins

So this is not a typo -- he is the best back to own in D.C. He ran for more than 100 yards Sept. 23, and he has the New York Football Giants Sept. 29.

Sleeper defense: Minnesota Vikings

Need a kicker? Michael Badgley, Los Angeles Chargers
