Week 4 fantasy football pickups and analysis

Heath Miller 
Pittsburgh Steelers, Tight End

Heath Miller has the third most points for tight ends. He’s got more than Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham at this point in the season. He has been the model of consistency, which is very hard to come by these days. Miller is widely available in fantasy football leagues. With the bi-weeks approaching, he’s worth picking up. Other break out tight ends to consider if available: Martellus Bennett, Dennis Pitta, and Kyle Rudolph.

Early season fantasy football surprises and what the heck to do about it

It’s week 4 and the NFL is upside down and backwards. Christian Ponder is outperforming Aaron Rodgers. So are Carson Palmer, Mark Sanchez and even Jake Locker. Who would’ve thought that starting Robert Griffin III over Rogers would go from a debate to a snap decision?

And what about the tight ends? Who could’ve imagined that Heath Miller would have more touchdowns (4) than Rob Gronkowski (2) and Jimmy Graham (3)?

Hakeem Nicks, Ahmad Bradshaw injuries put these new players on the fantasy radar

With Ahmad Bradshaw out tonight all eyes will be on New York Giants running backs Andre Brown and David Wilson. But, with receivers Hakeem Nicks and Domenik Hixon now also ruled out, opportunity knocks for Ramses Barden.

According to the Giants’ injury report Nicks is out with a foot issue and Hixon is out with a concussion. Barden, in his fourth-year, likely moves up to play alongside Victor Cruz against Carolina.

Jerrel Jernigan and Rueben Randle are also in the mix for the big spot but Barden is listed third on the Giants’ depth chart behind Nicks and Hixon on one side. And it’s Cruz, Jernigan, and Randle on the other. Barden is the only one of the three with a reception this season. Randle has gotten punt return work.

Martellus Bennett
New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett is widely available in leagues across the fantasy globe. The 6-6, 265 25-year-old is arguably this year’s fantasy football breakout tight end.

In week 1 he tallied 4 receptions for 40 yards and a score. In week 2 he bested the effort with a 5 reception, 72-yard masterpiece that included a 33-yard touchdown catch. He’s got a stud quarterback in Eli Manning (510 yards this week!) throwing him the ball on a championship team.

And if you’re curious, he is off to a better start than former Giants’ tight ends Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard in their last seasons with the G-men.

Andre Brown is the new fantasy football commodity

Last week it was Alfred Morris, this week it’s Andre Brown. In one game Brown emerged from obscurity and into the Broadway lights for the defending Super Bowl champs. He’s sure to be the hottest waiver wire commodity this week. Get him if you can.

The third string running back got a shot Sunday for the New York Giants after starter Ahmad Bradshaw left the game with an injury in the first half. Brown made the most of it by rushing for 71 yards and adding a touchdown. He also notched a two-point conversion that tied it up in the fourth quarter, helping pull the Giants out of a double-digit hole en route to the win.

 Surprisingly it was Brown, not first-round pick David Wilson who took control of the Giants running game Sunday when Bradshaw went down.
