Matthew Stafford, DET ($15,500)

When two leaky defences meet, best prepare yourself for a downpour of points. The prolific Stafford won’t be anuncommon pick this week, so max out on the Lions’ matchup with the hapless Bears by adding Marvin Jones and Eric Ebron to your line-up as well.

Trevor Siemian, DEN ($13,100)

The price might be unimpressive, but the same can’t be said for Siemian’s chemistry with Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Coming off a breakout fantasy performance, the Broncos QB now gets a tantalising matchup against the 25th ranked Bucs pass defence.

NFL Week 4


Mark Ingram, NO ($13,450)

The Draftstars pool will be flooded with Melvin Gordon owners, so take a jump to the left and plug in the bustling Ingram. The front seven is where you attack San Diego, and the Alabama product provides a three down threat for a shootout in the making.

Duke Johnson Jr. CLE ($7,850)

Washington’s run defence is a big play waiting to happen, and Johnson flashed his electric running with a 10-carry 69-yard outing in Week 3. Add to that the six passing targets the Duke is receiving, and that makes for a PPR delight in D.C.

NFL Week 4


Kelvin Benjamin, CAR ($13,750)

There may not be a finer time to slot the towering receiver into your line-up than off the back of a zero point performance against the Vikings. Because this week’s opponent — the Falcons defence — is no Minnesota. A 31st ranking against the pass makes Benjamin an explosive against-the-grain play who’s ownership percentage will be limited by last week’s box score readers.

Steve Smith Sr. BAL ($7,700)

The trash-talking elder of the NFL has increased his production as he regains match fitness after an Achilles tear. The Raiders secondary is next on the hit list as Smith the Senior proves age is but a number, costing you a very modest one in Week 4.

NFL Week 4

Jamison Crowder, WAS ($5,000)

How the slippery Washington wideout hasn’t seen his price rise is a mystery. With a touchdown in two straight games, Crowder is an outstanding cap-saver, boasting plenty of upside with a match-up against the Cleveland Browns.

Laurie Horesh, Melanie Dinjaski and Patrick Stack break down the juicy NFL headlines and speak to NZ’s Paul Lasike, Chicago Bears fullback.

Greg Olsen, CAR ($11,250)

If you want the security of one of the upper echelon tight ends, nestle yourself in the warm embrace of the burly Carolina tight end, who sets his sights on a vulnerable Falcons D.

Jimmy Graham, SEA ($7,500)

The Jets defence has been generous to athletic tight ends so far this season. Meanwhile this lowly-priced Seahawk remembered how to fly last week, looking like the match-up nightmare he once was as a Saint. With Russell Wilson healthy, roll with Graham if you’re looking for matchwinning potential for a thrift shop price.

NFL Week 4


Patriots ($5,000)

Coming off a shutout showing against Houston, the bottom-dollar Patriots now welcome the Bills (without Sammy Watkins) to Foxborough. Bill Bellichick takes pleasure in removing opposition strengths, and against a division rival, bank on the ‘Hooden One’ derailing Buffalo’s wagon.
