Fantasy Football Studs and Duds: Week Four

As week four comes to a close, I’ve got to say the beginning of this NFL season has been as chaotic as any season I can remember. The Eagles are undefeated, the Jets are playing .500 football despite having Joe Flacco as their quarterback, and Tua Tagovailoa now probably has Aaron Hernandez-level CTE. With that said, let’s break down some fantasy studs and duds from this past week.

Stud: Justin Jefferson (31 PPR Points)  

After a couple of mediocre weeks, Justin Jefferson had a 147-yard outing against the Saints this Sunday, highlighting his potential to be one of the most dominant receivers in the league. Hopefully Kirk performs even halfway-decent against the Bears this upcoming week so Jefferson can continue this hot streak.

Dud: Kyle Shitts (3.5 PPR Points)

The return of Kyle Shitts was inevitable. Adding on to an already disappointing three weeks, Pitts hauled in a whopping one catch for 25 yards in a win over the Browns. To be fair, the Falcons receiving core had a total of seven catches for the game, but with Pitts’ freak athleticism, his performance thus far has been incredibly disappointing.

Stud: T.J. Hockenson (39.9 PPR Points) 

In a shootout against the Seahawks, T.J. Hockenson had an absolutely monster game with 179 receiving yards and two touchdowns. With one of the highest single-week scores this season, Hockenson has secured himself as a top-tier tight end with the likes of Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews. Too bad the Lions just flat-out suck.

Dud: Alvin Kamara (0 PPR Points) 

Now, one might ask, “How could Alvin Kamara be a dud when he didn’t even play?”. While I can’t speak for everyone, I’m pretty sure the vast majority of fantasy managers aren’t waking up at 6:00 am to check their lineups before the London games. Every indication showed that Kamara was going to play, so the surpirse scratch was absolutely devastating for many. Kamara has been a complete bust so far this season, so hopefully he figures his shit out, especially since I have him on almost all of my teams this year.
