Hello NFLRUSHERS, I am coming at you with a Week 4 preview to help you make your picks, and get an insight on Week 4.
Bye Weeks: The Packers and the Panthers are on bye week this week and will not play. If you have any of their players in your fantasy lineup, take them out.
Locks: Bengals, Colts, Broncos, and Redskins. You are probably wondering, why are the Redskins a lock whenthey are 0-3? They are playing the Raiders this week. The Raiders are a little bit dysfunctional and haven't really done anything this year. RGIII is getting mad about how many wins he has and will take it out on the Raiders. Expect the Redskins to score many points in a 38-17 blowout. I really think that the Raiders will score a little bit in the trash time when they are just playing for pride even though the game is over. Look for RGIII to explode with a great game against the Raiders this week.
Upset Alert: Chiefs over Giants. 86% of NFLRUSHERS have picked the G-Men and I don't see why. The Chiefs are a really good team that can compete with anyone in the league. They are 3-0 and I don't consider this much of an upset, they will beat the Giants. With their stout defense and their explosive offense, the Chiefs can play with anyone. Expect Jamaal Charles to go off in a 31-14 rout of the Giants.
Game of the Week: The Patriots are traveling to the Georgia Dome to play the Falcons. These are two teams that have largely underperformed in my opinion. Even though the Patriots have been playing against sub-par teams, they have made it look hard. A normal Brady rout of the Buccaneers would have the Pats scoring 50 points but the offense isn't there this year. The Falcons have played to their competition and have not been as good as projected. With Roddy White not being healthy it is evident that Matt Ryan needs his offensive weapons to do well. If the Falcons get healthy, I expect them to win at home. The score will be around 24-20.
Picks for every game: I am going to tell you in this last section who I am going to pick in each game. Since the Texans are my favorite team, I refuse to make a biased pick about them. Here they are: 49ers over Rams, Ravens over Bills, Bengals over Browns, Bears over Lions, Colts over Jaguars, Chiefs over Giants, Steelers over Vikings (game played in London) Cardinals over Buccaneers, Titans over Jets, Broncos over Eagles, Redskins over Raiders, Cowboys over Chargers, Falcons over Patriots, and Saints over Dolphins.
I hope you enjoyed my preview. Be sure to make your Week 4 Picks for NFL Pick EM. Also, if you disagree with something I said, let me know in the comments section.
