"Hash Marks" Harris: Week 4 Report

I had a hunch that Johnson would be a solid pickup, but I didn't think he would have done that well. Regardless, he helped me get the victory. Call it whatever you will, but my team got the job done.

Here's a recap of Week 3's best performers and my Week 4 likes.

Week 3 Top Performers

QB – Aaron Rodgers (GB) –If you didn't already know, Aaron Rodgers is good, real good. He threw for 333 yards with five touchdowns on Monday Night Football.

RB – Devonta Freeman (ATL) –Freeman totaled 193 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns to help Atlanta move to 3-0. This second-year player had his breakout game.

WR – A.J. Green (CIN) –Ravens' Head Coach John Harbaugh said maybe his team will cover Green before he retires after Green recorded 10 receptions for 227 yards with two touchdowns.

TE – Greg Olsen (CAR) –Olsen had his best game of the season, recording eight receptions for 134 yards with two touchdowns.

Defense/Special Teams (ARZ) –The Cardinals limited the 49ers to seven points, while recording four interceptions and two defensive touchdowns.

K – Stephen Gostkowski (K) –Gostkowski made all three field goal attempts and all six PATs in the team's 51-point outburst.

Week 4 Likes:


(GB) Aaron Rodgers at San Francisco –San Francisco's defense has given up 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in back-to-back games. Enough said.

(IND) Andrew luck vs. Indianapolis –Luck has had a disappointing season but he gets a team that has given up 350 passing yards and multiple touchdowns in its last two games.

(PIT) Mike Vick vs. Baltimore –Sleeper pick of the week right here. The Ravens have given up six passing touchdowns and more than 700 passing yards in their last two games. Vick still has wheels, too.

Running Backs

(OAK) Latavius Murray at Chicago – Murray, who has 200 rushing yards and two scores in his last two games gets an opponent that has given up 335 rushing yards this season.

(GB) Eddie Lacy at San Francisco –Though Lacy hasn't had a great start to the season, San Francisco has given up five rushing touchdowns and 229 rushing yards in the last two games. Not a bad play.

(CHI) Matt Forte vs. Oakland –Forte is the Bears' best offensive weapon. He always finds a way to get points. And the Raiders' rush defense is average at best.

Wide Receivers

(ATL) Julio Jones vs. Houston –Ride the hot hand. Jones is off the charts right now. No one has stopped him yet, and I don't see how the Texans will.

(ARZ) Larry Fitzgerald vs. St. Louis –Like Jones, ride the hot hand. Larry Fitz is playing at such a high level. He has recorded a 100-yard game with multiple touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.

(CIN) A.J. Green vs. Kansas City –The Chiefs have one of the worst pass defenses in the league. They've allowed at least 220 receiving yards in each game this season to wide receivers, and nine touchdowns.

Tight Ends

(MIA) Jordan Cameron vs. N.Y. Jets –Cameron has had an okay season so far. He has his targets. Perhaps heading across the pond to London will put a one in his touchdown column.

(DAL) Jason Witten at New Orleans –The Saints rank second-to-last in the league in fantasy points allowed to tight ends, and with Dez Bryant out, Witten becomes a top target for Dallas.

(BUF) Charles Clay vs. N.Y. Giants –Clay has scored in two straight games. The Giants rank 29th in the league in fantasy points allowed to tight ends. Advantage Clay.

Defense/Special Teams

Denver vs. Minnesota –Denver's defense/special teams has recorded no less than 19 points in a game this season, and has forced multiple turnovers in each game.

Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville –Jacksonville's offense hasn't done anything all season. The Colts defense/special teams group should have a solid day.

Arizona vs. St. Louis –Arizona's defense and special teams group has recorded two touchdowns in each of the last two games. St. Louis' offense has done nothing the past two games.


(PIT) Josh Scobee vs. Baltimore –The Ravens have allowed the most fantasy points to a kicker in the league. In this rivalry

(DAL) Dan Bailey at New Orleans –New Orleans has allowed 8, 15 and 10 fantasy points to opposing kickers this season.

(NYJ) Nick Folk at Miami –Folk has totaled 7, 8 and 7 points in games this season, while Miami has allowed 25 points to opposing kickers the last two games.
