Fantasy Football DREAMERS: Players to avoid in Week 4.
QUARTERBACK – CASE KEENUM vs GIANTS
So if I like McLaurin, why would I not like the guy throwing to him? That’s simple: Keenum is one bad interception or fumble away from losing his job to the successor.
The possibility that Dwayne Haskins takes over for Keenum is high. Don’t waste any FAAB on a QB who could play one negative point quarter for you and get benched. The hope here is that Haskins and McLaurin will take their connection from Ohio State to the next level and number 17 will benefit no matter who throws him the ball.
RUNNING BACK – WAYNE GALLMAN vs REDSKINS
I don’t mean to pick on this game, but that’s the nature of having two subpar defenses facing one another. With Barkley going down with a high ankle sprain last week, Wayne Gallman is in line to take the reins to the Giants run game.
The big problem here is that a team with negative game scripts usually has subpar RB production. The Giants have overcome those deficiencies by employing arguably the best running back in the game.
News flash: Gallman is not half as good as Saquon Barkley. Washington is not that bad against the run and the Giants have future matchups against the Vikings and Patriots, the 5th and 1st rushing defenses respectively. I would only add Gallman if you plan on trading him as part of a package.
WIDE RECEIVER – TAYLOR GABRIEL vs VIKINGS
Even if Gabriel wasn’t injured and questionable with a concussion, I would advise ignoring a fluke 3 touchdown performance. The chances of Gabriel recreating this success on a weekly basis is about as likely as Mitch Trubisky scoring more touchdowns than Pat Mahomes.
If you need help at wideout, look for Phillip Dorsett with New England or Paris Campbell with the Colts. Each has better QBs and long term opportunities.
