1. Vikings D/ST

The Chicago Bears offense has been horrendous this season. Offensively, Chicago is last in passing offense with the 31st team having 171 more passing yards. Quarterback back Justin Fields is tied for 30th in touchdown passes and second to last in quarterback rating amongst starting NFL quarterbacks. Opposing defenses have the ability to take chances to make plays against the Bears offense due to the lackluster passing. Fantasy owners should expect a big day for the Minnesota Vikings defense on Sunday. The Vikings defense is a must play this week.

2. Jameis Winston

This is a dream situation for the New Orleans Saints offense and Jameis Winston to get back on track. Winston has been underperforming this year as there were high expectations for the Saints. Seattle’s defense has given up the second most points in the NFL with 28.8 points being allowed per game. Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara should be back in the lineup. The Saints offense has the potential to put up a lot of points on Sunday. Geno Smith has played well for Seattle, so we could be in for a high scoring affair between these two teams.

3. Romeo Doubs

Aaron Rodgers is looking for a wide receiver that he trusts since the departure of All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams. Romeo Doubs could be the go-to guy Rodgers is looking for. In the past two games, Doubs has had eight targets and a touchdown in each contest. He is picking up steam and one more performance like his last two will make him a must add. While he is available fantasy owners should buy low on Doubs as he is on the verge of being a star in Green Bay. He is a low risk, high reward for fantasy owners in need of a RB2/Flex play.

4. Zay Jones

Head coach Doug Pederson has completely rejuvenated the Jacksonville Jaguars culture. Trevor Lawerence has been playing like the first pick in the NFL Draft putting the Jaguars on pace to make the playoffs. Zay Jones had 11 targets last game as he is building rapport with Lawrence. Jones is surprisingly available in many ESPN leagues and deserves a roster spot to assess if he continues to put up big numbers. The Jacksonville pass catcher is a low risk add for fantasy owners.

Week four Stats:

10 receptions, 85 receiving yards, one touchdown
