Key Week 4 Matchups to keep your eye on

Posted By Colin Teskey On Oct 2 2010 @ 4:49 pm In Fantasy | No Comments

If you’re one of those people who are beginning to think your fantasy roster resembles the current state of the Cleveland Cavaliers, then this blog right here may just have the right recipe to get you back on track. If you’re wondering who can have a big impact for you at the quarterback position this week  because you drafted Brett Favre or Eli Manning , or if you’re a Maurice Jones- Drew owner and you’re worried about his early season struggles or if you’re concerned about Carson Palmer’s play then I may have some answers  to help stop the bleeding this week and give your team an edge.

Peyton Hillis, RB Cleveland Browns: Hillis has made some noise in fantasy circles over the last week after putting up 144 yards against the Baltimore Ravens and seems poised to make the Browns’ offense fantasy relevant.  Holmgren has shown confidence in Hillis, giving him the keys to the running game ever since Montario Hardesty went down for the season, and it has paid off so far..  Another thing that has impressed me about this guy is his ability to find the endzone, with  three touchdowns in his first three games. Hillis should be a flex starter or your number two running back this week against Cincinnati.

Louis Murphy, WR Oakland Raiders: I know you guys might think I’m crazy to mention a wide receiver from Oakland and I’m not reminiscing about when Randy Moss played there. Murphy is a great wide receiver out of Florida and has great chemistry with new QB Bruce Gradkowski and has a great match up against the Texans this week.  Houston is home to the worst pass rush in the entire league right now, allowing teams to throw for 368 yard of passing per game. Look for Murphy to be the Raiders’ secret weapon this week if McFadden struggles against the Texans’ rush defense..

Chad Henne, QB Miami: The Dolphins are no doubt  a run-first team but the addition of Brandon Marshall means that they now possess a big-time receiver who can stretch the field. Marshall and Henne are starting to click down in Miami and they get to face a young Patriots’ defense that allowed 30 points to the Bills at home last week, against Ryan Fitzpatrick..yikes! If Ryan Fitzpatrick can put up those kind of points then Henne should have no problem doing the same this week. After watching film of that game the Pats’ young secondary made a lot of costly mistakes especially biting on every play action play and could get dizzy chasing after Brandon Marshall. Start Henne!

Devin Hester:  What’s more surprising, the fact that the Bears are 3-0 or the re-birth of Devin Hester? The Bears have had some timely luck this season (talk to Calvin Johnson) but a big reason they were able to go 3-0 after beating the Packers on Monday night was what Hester provided in the return game.  A 62 yard touchdown reminded Bears’ fans of when he was fresh out of college and he gets an easy matchup this week against the Giants. Hester looks rejuvenated and should give the Giants’ measly special teams unit headaches all day.

Donovan McNabb QB, Washington Redskins:   This game is going to be full of emotions for both Philadelphia and Washington and whoever can use that  emotion in a positive way will come out on top. The fans will undoubtedly boo him and that should act as just the right amount  of motivation for McNabb to beat his former team. He played there 11 seasons and knows  just what to expect on both sides of the ball and he should be in for a good fantasy day.
