Fourth Quarter Killers For Week Four


Rack up as many fantasy points as you can. To do so inserting some bottom tier fantasy players in poor matchups is a strategy implemented by many. Figuring out the proper players to pick for fourth quarter fantasy points can give you a leg up from a poor performing starter that week. Here are some players to take a key look at for week four.

Eli Manning
The panic button has been firmly pressed in New York, and it’s not on the NY Jets. I expect to hear the typical approach teams take when they’re losing unexpectedly. A team meeting. Grouping together is not going to help this team, it’s the personnel. One strength they still have is under center. Eli and the Giants are going to have design quicker pass plays to get their offense moving. Eli will be gunning all four quarters.

Ahmad Bradshaw
Here is a reverse of extra numbers you can get from a player with a big lead. Bradshaw and the Colts are heading to Jacksonville to face their divisional opponent that they’ve owned for years. The Colts are coming off a dominant win in San Francisco and did so with a reversal of their play calling a year ago. They ran the football well with three backs. Bradshaw did the most damage and did so in the fourth quarter. With a big lead in Jacksonville watch for Bradshaw to carry the load once again in the fourth.

Stevie Johnson
Johnson’s play has been fairly consistent to start the season. This week the Bills get another tough defense as they face the Baltimore Ravens. EJ Manuel had a rough time this past week against the Jets and may find himself in an early hole again against the Ravens. Baltimore’s defense was ferocious against the Texans and should make things difficult for the Bills offense. Expect Johnson to tally some numbers in the fourth.

Michael Floyd
Last week the Cardinals offense was stymied in New Orleans. The Cardinals continue their road trip away from home by traveling to Tampa Bay. Carson Palmer has never excelled on the road, nor have the Cardinals as a team. Which ever quarterback limits their mistakes will get their team a victory. I’m expecting the Bucs defense to hold tough at home and create some points for their offense. Palmer behind loves to sling the football and may be able to hit Floyd in the fourth for a td and extra reception yards.

Jordan Cameron
The Browns pulled out all the tricks in their victory over the Vikings. All the Browns need to do with Cameron is call his number. He is a legitimate top five fantasy tight end right now, and is a mismatch against any opposing defense. The Bengals have been terrific against the pass. With Pacman Jones recent arrest, it’ll be interesting to see how the secondary holds up. Cameron is going to get his catches. He is just too tall and a freak athlete to stop for four quarters.

Riley Cooper
Right now any opponent of Denver’s is going to find themselves in a hole quickly in less than can create turnovers. Philadelphia’s defense has been non-existent which puts even more pressure on the Eagles offense in a tough environment in Denver. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Chip Kelly yank Vick towards the end if things aren’t going well. Either way the air attack will be full throttle for the Eagles in the fourth period. DeSean Jackson tends to checkout when things aren’t going well, leaving the door open for Cooper to get some garbage stats.

Others: Chris Givens, Cecil Shorts III, DeAndre Hopkins, Ben Tate, and Pierre Garcon
