When the final whistle of Week 4 blows, we’ll officially be through a quarter of the Fantasy Football. Needless to say, this is a huge marking point of your 2018 season, and a W is absolutely crucial. So follow your pulverizing lead blockers, The Wolf and Truth, to glory!

We start with a loaded trainers room, covering:

-Rex Burkhead’s move to the IR and what this means for Sony Michel

-Evan Engram’s 2-4 game absence, and who to turn to fill the void

-Doug Baldwin’s potential return, and if he can be trusted from the start

-The latest on LeSean McCoy’s ribs and if he’s usable when he returns

Plus, we run through another round of Higher, Lower, and Hail Mary. Find out:

-Why Andy Dalton, Gio Bernard, and Tyler Eifert all land on The Wolf’s “Must Start” list

-How Andrew Luck’s arm is still a major concern, and what his ROS outlook is

-Why Ty Montgomery, Dallas Goedert, Ryan Tannehill, and Jakeem Grant could all be week-swinging Hail Mary’s for desperate owners

-What to expect from exploding Waiver Wire pickups Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd in Week 4, and why they are excellent upside WR3s alongside Sterling Shepard and Nelson Agholor

-Why first-rounder Kareem Hunt is getting too much love, and is far riskier than most are making him out to be

We also rifle through Week 4’s Burning Questions, which run the gamut on Baker Mayfield’s fantasy value in his first start, the Cardinals prospects under new starter Josh Rosen, and what to expect from the 49ers after losing Jimmy Garoppolo from the season (including the guy who sneakily benefits from this in fantasy).

 

All this, and a jam-packed mailbag, make for another can’t miss episode of The Fantasy Fullback Dive. Find paydirt in Week 4, and smash your open with the best advice in the business!

A Wild Week 1 of the 2018 Season is officially in the books, and the Fantasy Football implications are massive. From emerging workhorses and target hogs, to shocking regressions, to breakouts we saw from a mile away, you can't prepare for Week 2 without learning Week 1's must-know lessons.

First, we hit you with every relevant stat in (just over) 10 minutes in our Rapid-Fire Sunday Rundown. Then, we dig into the most important fantasy storylines, covering crucial Risers and Fallers including:

--Our boy Patrick Mahomes proving he's the real deal, and what Tyreek Hill's value would be if you're drafting today

--The Saints defensive regression and the huge implications this could have on Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara moving forward

--Dion Lewis' "Workhorse" status and what this means for Derrick Henry's value moving forward

--James Conner's bonafide RB1 value and how far Le'Veon Bell should be falling in Rest of Season Rankings

--Deshaun Watson's ugly debut, and how he should be viewed moving forward (below Mahomes?!)

--Christian McCaffrey's underwhelming debut... but why you shouldn't overreact yet.

Plus, we tackle three waiver wire names owned in less than 10% of leagues you must monitor. We paved some massive holes for you in the preseason, so keep following us to Fantasy Stardom with the best regular season coverage in the game.
