Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season is officially in the books, with Week 4 on the horizon. Fantasy football streaming options are beginning to separate themselves now that we have three games worth of analytics and numbers to analyze. New quarterback, tight end and defensive options continue to present themselves, particularly with injuries occurring and players being benched.
The players below are the most intriguing potential additions ahead of Week 4 of the 2020 NFL season.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield – 43% rostered
Mayfield clearly hasn’t had the season he or anyone else envisioned, as he’s only the QB25 post-Week 3 with his 41.5 fantasy points, but he does have a tremendous matchup in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys, who have allowed the third-most points to opposing quarterbacks per game this season.
One of the main issues for Mayfield and the Browns is their propensity to run the ball, which obviously lowers Mayfield’s ceiling to some degree. The bright side is that the Cowboys have allowed the fifth-most passing yards, the eighth-most passing yards per attempt and the most passing touchdowns in 2020.
PFF’s fantasy projections anticipate a QB10 finish for Mayfield this week. A strong performance is not only possible for Mayfield, but expected.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick – 7% rostered
The Harvard Rifle is ol’ reliable. Fitzpatrick is currently ranked as QB20 with his 53.0 fantasy points, but that number could be on the rise after Week 4 due to a tremendous matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have allowed the most passing yards through three games in NFL history and the second-most points to opposing quarterbacks, and Fitzpatrick's propensity to throw the ball downfield is sure to produce strong results this week.
