Welcome to Week 4 – the start of bye weeks! There are two teams (Panthers and Redskins) on byes this week and I have good news for all Cam Newton owners: Your streaming option is here!
Geronimo Allison, GB WR
Allison has two games with a TD scored this season and has surpassed 60 yards receiving in every game. He’s the Packers’ main deep threat and really their third option at receiver right now, but that was also Davante Adams’ role just a couple seasons ago. Allison is worth a deep-league look and is a decent handcuff option for Adams’ owners.
Case Keenum, Den QB
Yes, we already mentioned him after Week One. However, an extremely lackluster performance against a strong Ravens front probably led him right back to the waiver wire in your league. If you were rostering Alex Smith or Cam Newton and need a streaming option this week, Keenum is your guy. The Chiefs have allowed a 106.3 QB rating through three weeks and don’t even seem to care to try on defense. The Broncos will need Keenum to throw at least 3 touchdowns to have a chance at home against Mahomes and the Chiefs, so you can do much worse.
Ryan Tannehill, Mia QB
Tannehill is coming off a big day against the Raiders in which he completed 17 of 23 passes for 289 yards and three TDs. The Patriot’s defense has been off to a slow start and is definitely attackable, so Tannehill is an extremely intriguing streaming option this week.
Wendell Smallwood, Phi RB
Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles both missed Week 3, so Smallwood picked up the slack and had 10 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. This is a situation worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues, as Ajayi has looked tender this year and Sproles is no stranger to missing games.
Isaiah Crowell / Bilal Powell, NYJ RB
Both of these players seem capable of being fantasy starters in their own right, but the backfield is completely locked in a committee right now. Unless one of them goes down with an injury, it’s going to be hard to trust either to produce consistently.
Kenyan Drake, MIA RB
Drake had 10 total yards last Sunday. It was a bizarrely bad performance against a juicy matchup, so we’re officially sounding the alarms for Drake owners. Frank Gore keeps vulturing some key touches so Drake may be a RB3 until further notice. He has a good matchup coming up against the Patriots this week, so it may be time to jump ship if he fails to produce yet again.
