(Maximum Sports Channels – Phil Naessens) Week four of the FanDuel Fantasy Football season is here! The main slate has been reduced to just 12 games and that makes it a bit easier to work with. There are plenty of options this week at Quarterback (QB) and I’ve narrowed it down to five QB’s I’m interested in this week.

Las Vegas is projecting a 52 point over under when the New Orleans Saints travel to San Diego to play the Chargers. That’s a bunch of points and while Drew Brees ($8,600) is always an appealing consideration I think I like Chargers QB Philip Rivers ($8,500) a bit more this week. Yea, Rivers laid a stinker this week but a matchup with a defense allowing QB’s to average a league worst 23.98 Fantasy points against a 4000 yard a season QB like Rivers in a possible high scoring game is hard to ignore. Rivers is at home and the Chargers are favored in this one by 4 points. Hard to ignore and worthy of your consideration this week.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is averaging 17 FanDuel points per game and I like his matchup this Sunday at home against the Cleveland Browns. Vegas set the over under 45.5 and the Redskins are currently a 9.5 home favorite. The Browns are allowing QB’s to average 19.07 Fantasy points a game this season and is much better at stopping the run then the pass so this could be a good opportunity for Cousins to light up the scoreboard early and often. Cousins might fly under the radar this week and the 45.5 point over-under is hard for me to ignore and another QB that is absolutely worthy of consideration this week.

I’m going to stay with the Redskins and Browns and look to rookie Browns QB Cody Kessler ($6,300). Kessler was okay in his rookie debut and he’s up against a Redskins defense allowing QB’s to average 24.76 Fantasy points a game. The Browns are a 9.5 point road underdog and if everything goes according to Vegas Kessler will be coming from behind and throwing the ball plenty. This is completely boom or bust here and I don’t expect him to be too highly owned in this one but sometimes you have to be bold to win a big tournament.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford ($8,300) had a huge game last week against the Green Bay Packers throwing for nearly 400 yards and 3 touchdowns. His matchup this week on the road against the Chicago Bears looks like another good opportunity to have another monster day. The Bears defense allows QB’s to average 19.21 Fantasy points a game and the Lions offense is far and away the best offense this Bears team has seen this season. I like the 46.5 point over under with the Lions being an early week 3 point favorite. Stafford flew under the radar last week and while I suspect his ownership will be slightly higher this week his price tag might keep people away. If he goes off this week he might just win you a tournament.

The Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr ($8,000) is also worthy of your consideration this week. This week the Raiders are on the road against the Baltimore Ravens. Vegas expects a high scoring affair setting the over under at 46.5 points with the Ravens an early week 3 point favorite. The general rule of thumb is not to choose an offense that travels cross country and plays the early Sunday game. I usually hold to that rule but the Ravens have allowed QB’s to average 17.84 Fantasy points a game this season. That doesn’t seem like that many but Carr is having a pretty good season averaging 20 FanDuel points a game. I suspect Carr will go widely overlooked but he has the ability to go off and if he does you’ll be happy you decided to take a chance on Carr this week.

Good luck at FanDuel!
