NFL Week 4 Bold Predictions
Leonard Fournette Finds the Endzone Twice
The workhorse running back has had a disappointing start to what many thought would be a big year for Leonard Fournette. Outside of a single 69 yard run, Fournette has been bottled up so far this season. Despite playing over 94% of Jacksonville's snaps in 2019, Fournette has yet to break 15 fantasy points in a single game. A slow start that has been partly due to poor offensive line play. However, today the opportunity for Fournette and the Jaguars run game is present. In a matchup on the road against the Denver Broncos, Jacksonville will look to establish the ground game early. Denver currently ranks 16th league wide in run defense. A team that gave up (23.80) points to Josh Jacobs, as well as 20+ points to Green Bay's backfield. If Leonard Fournette wants turn his season around, it will be today. Expect the Jaguars to control the clock by feeding Fournette, as he is looking for his first touchdown since week 16 of last season.
Dallas Dominates Sunday Night Football
In a very intriguing matchup between two of the NFC's best, Dallas will travel to New Orleans to take on Teddy Bridgewater's Saints. The Cowboys are off to an impressive 3-0 start behind the play of Dak Prescott. While New Orleans is trying to keep the boat afloat until Drew Brees returns from injury. Tonight, expect Ezekiel Elliot and company to ruin the party in New Orleans. A double digit deficit could be in the works, as Kellen Moore's offense will prove to be too much for the Saints to handle. Teddy Bridgewater will not be able to out duel one of the leagues top offenses so far in 2019. The Cowboys strong start will continue with a 31-16 road victory.
Matthew Stafford/Kenny Golladay DFS Stack Pays Off
The Lions are playing host to the Kansas City Chiefs in week 4, in what should be the highest scoring game of the weekend. Matthew Stafford is priced criminally low this week ($6900 FD) and seems to be a must start at the quarterback position. Not only will the Lions most likely be playing from behind, but Detroit knows if they want to keep up with Mahomes' high powered offense, they will have to throw the football early and often. Stacking Kenny Golladay ($6700 FD) with Stafford is the right play in this matchup. Kansas City has struggled to cover #1 WR's so far this season, giving up (22.60 pts) to DJ Chark, and (13.10 pts) in one half to Tyrell Williams. Expect Matt Stafford to find his favorite target in the endzone a couple time this afternoon, as the Lions will try to pull off the upset at home.
