Sneaky Starts: Week 4


All but the luckiest fantasy owners at some point need to find the proverbial diamond in the rough—a waiver wire or bench player capable of putting up some points in a pinch. This weekly feature is dedicated to that part of fantasy football. It's not pretty, but it's part of the game.

Week 3 of this column had several hits. Ryan Tannehill, Sam Darnold, Derek Carr, James Robinson, Cordarrelle Patterson, Nyheim Hines, Tim Patrick, Emmanuel Sanders, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Austin Hooper and Dawson Knox all exceeded Week 3 expectations.

Since we now have updated adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) for 2021, I’ll include the defense’s ranking in that metric for each matchup.

Let’s take a look at the top Sneaky Starts for Week 4.
