It’s Week 4 of the NFL regular season and that means, things are starting to get pretty serious in your fantasy football leagues. Every matchup counts and you’ll want to make sure that you have the best lineup week in an week out. As always, we’re here to help. Here’s everything fantasy owners need to know heading into Week 4.

Stock Up/Stock Down

Stock Up: 

  • QB Cam Newton, Panthers – Newton has put together two consecutive strong performances. After a shaky start to the season, he is starting to succeed, despite his supporting cast.
  • RB Joseph Randle, Cowboys – Randle finally had his true breakout game against Atlanta, striking pay dirt three times. He has solidified himself as the featured back in Dallas.
  • RB Devonta Freeman, Falcons – With Tevin Coleman out due to injury, Freeman got his chance to shine. Boy, did he?! He racked up 141 yards and three touchdowns.
  • WR Travis Benjamin, Browns – Benjamin has been one of the more consistent wideouts this season, recording a touchdown catch in every game this season.
  • RB Latavius Murray, Raiders – Murray put on a big performance against the Browns. The Raiders’ offense has looked good the past couple weeks and he’s a major reason why.

Stock Down:


Ben Roethlisberger

, Steelers – Roethlisberger will likely miss six weeks after suffering an MCL sprain. It’ll be interesting to watch even when he does return.

  • RB Lamar Miller, Dolphins – Miller has been one of the biggest disappointments so far this season. Through three games, he’s only accumulated 105 yards and no touchdowns.
  • QB Andrew Luck, Colts – Just like his team, Luck has underperformed. He currently has more interceptions than touchdowns.
  • RB Jeremy Hill, Bengals – Hill had a solid Week 1, but since then, he’s been far from impressive. He can certainly turn things around though.
  • WR Terrance Williams, Cowboys – Once Dez Bryant went down, Williams was supposed to become the go-to receiver, but made no receptions in Week 3 and was only targeted twice.
