Trophy Winning Week 4 Sleepers

Trends are starting to emerge as we dumpster dive for trophy winning sleepers in Week 4.

Trophy Winning Week 4 Sleepers



Week 4 is upon us and trends are starting to emerge. These trends will help us analyze matchups as we dumpster dive for trophy winning sleepers in Week 4. So what will we exploit in our dumpster dives for gold? Find out in a minute, but let’s first recap the week that was to provide full transparency on our results. 

In the first two accountability sections, I offered apologies for subpar results. This week will not include that because Week 3 may have been the best column this author has ever published so let’s celebrate some positive results from last week.

To the Victor, Go the Spoils

Trevor Lawrence (Projected QB18, finished QB4), James Robinson (Projected RB25, finished RB6), and Tyler Conklin (Projected TE16, finished TE4) all absolutely smashed their projections and outscored every player listed in their lineup advice section. So that is a clean sweep at three of four positions, likely getting you one week closer to that Championship Trophy.

 Last week, we said you deserved better, and we delivered. Thanks for sticking around.

Was the Miss Even a Miss?

Curtis Samuel put up 13.1 PPR points and outscored two of the four names mentioned in the lineup advice. Unfortunately, better picks were available outside of the Top 20 that blew up. Looking back, the writing was on the wall for Zay Jones, so we will take ownership for not recognizing it. Let’s hope we can be better with sleepers at the wide receiver position while looking for Week 4, but 13.1 points should be the floor of a trophy winning play. 

With a trophy winning Week 3, our overall record is finally looking more like we expect!

Lineup Advice - 35-17

But enough celebrating because a column is only as good as its last results. So let’s dive into these Week 4 sleepers!

Trophy Winning Upgrade in Seattle for Our Week 4 Sleeper?

So I am sort of joking about quarterback Geno Smith being an upgrade over Russell Wilson, but they are much closer in 2022 than anyone could have expected. Now Smith gets an abysmal Lions team against the pass, while their offense has forced opponents to throw. The high-scoring affair is a recipe for a big game for the consensus QB18 on the week! 

Smith outscores the higher-rated Matthew Stafford, Derek Carr, Russell Wilson, and Jared Goff as my trophy winning sleeper for Week 4 at quarterback. 

The Always Underrated

The best game on the slate also produces the best value at the position. Devin Singletary was utilized heavily in the receiving game as he saw 11 (!) targets last week. He turned them into 78 yards and a touchdown. Singletary could top his Week 3 output in Week 4 against the Ravens if his usage continues—and it will. Somehow he comes in at RB26 in the consensus rankings making him a smash for our trophy winning Week 4 sleepers column.





Baltimore gives up points to running backs - particularly pass-catching ones - as they allow the second most targets to the position on the season. Just a PPR monster game coming.  

I would be very comfortable starting Singletary over Jeff Wilson, AJ Dillon, Ezekiel Elliott, and Dameon Pierce this week. 

Not Just a Week 4 Trophy Winning Sleeper

The metrics have shown Chris Olave is on the verge of a breakout. We finally saw the potential shine through during Week 3, as Olave saw 13 targets for the second consecutive week. The rookie went off for 147 yards on nine catches.

So what Toilet-Worthy Losers have him at WR27 this week against Minnesota?  

Honestly, I have no idea, but this is probably the last week he will qualify for this column, so I need to take advantage of this opportunity. If Josh Reynolds put up 96 yards against this secondary, imagine what the uber-talented Olave can do. 

I would get Olave in my lineup over Diontae Johnson, CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and last week’s sleeper Curtis Samuel.

Can We Make It Two Consecutive?

Probably not; this week is disgusting at the tight end position. That said, the Jags treated me well last week so I am returning to them for one more piece of magic. If you missed last week’s game, you missed an Evan Engram touchdown. 

You won’t see it in the box score because the review official hates Engram and overturned it. I can only guess he played fantasy and wanted revenge because he rostered Engram at some point over the past five years. However, you have to trust me; it was a touchdown. 

Meanwhile, the Jags offense is producing an awful lot of red zone opportunities which is what we like for tight ends. In Week 4, the Jags draw the high-flying Eagles, who have been scoring points in bunches. Let’s look for a shootout against the surprising Doug Peterson offense. Evan Engram gets one back in Week 4 and finishes as a top option at tight end.

Engram comes in at TE19 but should be ahead of Dawson Knox, Robert Tonyan, Dalton Schultz, and Tyler Conklin (who could free fall with the return of Zach Wilson).

So that does it for our trophy winning Week 4 sleepers! Let’s hope it wins you as many Championship Belts as Week 3. Appreciate y’all riding with us and this weekly series!
