It’s already week 4, and there are a lot of unknowns in the NFL these days, but these players are as close to a sure thing in fiction as you can get.
These are my best bets for scoring at running back and wide receiver positions.
derrick henryMILF Titans
There’s really no better bet in football at the moment than Henry, who leads the league with 21.3 fantasy points per game. Henry, who has already had three touchdowns this season, will face the Jets this week with the fourth-best matchup for RB. League.
melvin gordonMILF Broncos
Gordon has scored in two out of three matches this season, and could make it three out of four against the Ravens team that has allowed five TDs to race so far this season. Gordon is on the field for more than half of Denver’s offensive plays, but he has more speedy efforts (42) than Chris Carson, Nazi Harris and Aaron Jones, so he is making the most of his playing time. With a TD dependency of 30.85%, Gordon has more than a solid chance of finding the last zone in Week 4.
Chris Carson, seahawks
Carson is on a roll, scoring three TDs in his last two games for the Seahawks. The 49ers are on for Seattle this week, and they are among the pack defensive unit that has allowed three TDs to run this season already. Carson’s 46.15% TD reliance means he’s getting high-yield touches on the field more than 60% of the time so far, and he’s set to add to his TD total this week in what should be a competitive sport .
jack moss, Bill
Moss started his 2021 season relatively late, missing Week 1, but he has been catching up fast, scoring three times in his last two matches. Moss goes up against a Texan team this week which is our 11th best matchup for RB, allowing RB over 450 total yards and three TDs so far this season. Moss was on the field for 56% of Buffalo’s snaps in Week 3, while it was only 43% for Devin Singletary, and he’s back on the goal-line to boot. His absurd 63.16% TD dependency will carry Moss confidently into week 4 and beyond.
Alvin Kamra, Saints
An average of over 20 touches in a game, Kamara has scored twice this season as a pass-catcher. It doesn’t really matter how he’s finding the final zone, as Kamara’s healthy 33.43 TD dependency is going into week 4. At home this week, he will face a Giants team that is giving RB the ninth-highest number of points. this session. Given over 80% of his team’s snaps, the third-highest for RB in the league, Kamara is the Saints’ best bet to score.
Tim PatrickMILF Broncos
An unlikely scoring candidate, Patrick actually led the Broncos in achieving in 2020, and with the way the Broncos wide receiver is getting injured, he may do so again this year.
Patrick has already scored in two of three games this season, and his chances are strong this week against a Ravens team that is allowing 314.7 passing yards per game so far. With a TD dependency of 40.82%, Patrick is one of my better bets to reach the end zone this week.
tyler locket, seahawks
Lockett is tied for the third-most receiving TDs (three) for a receiver this season. He will face a 49ers team in Week 4, which he scored twice on the road in 2020, so he is no stranger to success against them away from home. Looking at Seattle’s 91% of snaps on the field and 36.81% TD reliance on this week’s matchup, Lockett is the best bet to score.
Cooper Kupp, Ramso
The league leader in TD (five), Kupp is the best bet to score right now as Matt Stafford’s preferred option is in the last field. The fact that the Rams play the Cardinals this week only increases their chances, as Los Angeles may have to score early and often with the frantic pace of the Arizona offense. Kupp’s 45.32% TD reliance on league-high 25 reception is staggering, but I don’t see him slowing down this week or anytime in the near future.
mike williams, Charger
In one of the biggest surprises of 2021, Williams is at a breakneck pace, scoring four times in his first three games in the Chargers’ rising offense. Playing nearly 75% of his snaps so far, Williams is a semi-permanent fixture for Los Angeles, and he maintains a 43.24% TD reliance on 22 receptions, a formidable rate. Williams is hard to cover with his size and rare speed.
jammer chase, bengals
Chase is leading the Bengals in receiving as a rookie, already scoring four times this season against defensive giants like Chicago and Pittsburgh. It looks like they might have a much easier time against Jacksonville, a team that this season has allowed 639 receiving yards and two TDs with wide receiving. Chase is over 85% of the snaps on the field right now, better than any Bengals pass-catcher, so if there’s a score to be gained, it’s likely it will be Chase who brings it in. With a 52.40% TD dependency, Chase makes for the best bet to find the last sector in Week 4.
