Week Four Fantasy Football QB Sleepers
Are you an Alex Smith or Cam Newton owner? A Jimmy Garoppolo owner? Or do you just love to live the quarterback position one week at a time? No matter the reason you are looking some week four fantasy football QB sleepers, we are here to help. The fantasy football quarterback sleeper list trawls for two QB sleepers owned in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues. If you play in a deep league, we can still help, as we will also get you a QB sleeper to consider with ownership under 10%.
Eli Manning versus New Orleans (29% owned)
A lot of people liked to play the OBJ (good) + Saquon Barkley (good) + Evan Engram (good) = Eli Manning (good) game entering the season, and they fell flat on their faces. The main reason is that Eli Manning is actually bad, no matter the weaponry around him. That having been said, Eli averages over 36 passing attempts a game, and the Giants are taking on a Saints team that yields an absurd average opposing QB line of 345 yards and three touchdowns, with just one pick in three games. Yikes.
Joe Flacco at Pittsburgh (24% owned)
Flacco has six touchdowns and two interceptions through the first three games of the season, alongside about 300 yards a game. He gets a lot of dump offs to running backs and has a decent WR corps for the first time in a long time, so we finally get to see an elite quarterback with weaponry. He gets a Steelers defense that has already been lit up by Patrick Mahomes and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Like the Saints, they’ve allowed ten touchdowns in three games, and like the Saints, they both yielded just one passing touchdown to Tyrod Taylor. Do the math, that’s 4.5 touchdowns a game to the other two QBs who faced them.
Josh Allen at Green Bay (9% owned)
Josh Allen is not good, but Josh Allen is the type of good that could make him a viable fantasy football QB sleeper. He throws deep bombs, he runs the ball, and he isn’t going to turtle up. He also plays with an atrocious defense. He’s started two games this year and has averaged 21.37 fantasy points in those two contests. Yes, he blew up last week, but he still posted 15 fantasy points against the Chargers. This week he gets a positive matchup, as the Green Bay Packers allow the ninth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Mitchell Trubisky threw up all over himself for a half of football, and still posted over 14 fantasy points against them. Cousins blew up for 425 & 4 scores. Alex Smith posted a respectable 17.8 fantasy points. Green Bay can be beaten by opposing quarterbacks, and Josh Allen could take advantage of that. Or he could get three interceptions on his first three passes of the game. Definitely one or the other.
