Ballers of the Week
I’m sure that it’s no surprise that Favre tops the list of fantasy ballers for week four. He was simply incredible against the Cardinals, throwing for six touchdowns and 289 yards! He did throw one INT, but other than that Brett was unstoppable. This performance came just in time because Gang Green fans were starting to grow impatient with Favre. He silenced the doubters and is starting to build quite the relationship with his receivers.
After doing a lot of complaining last week, LJ backed it up with a huge fantasy day as he went off for 198 rushing yards on 28 carries and two TD’s. He broke free for a 65-yard run early in the game and never looked back as he helped his team upset
Everyone was waiting for at least one Jet WR to breakout as a fantasy threat in 2008 and Coles finally did that with an eight catch-105 yard performance that included three trips to the end zone. It is clear that Coles is starting to become very comfortable with his new QB and this chemistry should only grow because the Jets’ next three games are all very winnable contests. The Jets have a bye in week five, but make sure to get Coles in your lineup for week six against the Bengals.
Busts of the Week
Many fantasy owners were very disappointed with Reggie’s day on Sunday against lowly
The frustrations towards Grant continued for the fourth straight week with just 20 yards on 15 carries. Grant still hasn’t crossed the goal line and has run for just 94 yards in his last three games total. The only positives owners can take out of the first four weeks is that Grant has gone up against good run defenses in Minnesota, Detroit, Dallas and Tampa Bay and he has been banged up with a hamstring injury. So hopefully he can get back on track against
It seems like Turner is starting a trend here in 2008 where he has a great game then a very poor game. After rushing for over 100 yards and three touchdowns last week, Turner went the opposite way in week four and ran for just 56 yards with no TD’s. It has been an up and down season for Turner thus far, but there is no way you can bench him ever because he is so explosive. Keep an eye on him the next two weeks though as he goes up against two tough defenses in
has come out of nowhere the last two weeks, logging 179 receiving yards and two TD’s in that span. QB Drew Brees has been on a roll this season and he needs to throw to someone with his big-play WR Marques Colston out right now.

Jones has been a steady WR over the first quarter of 2008. He has at least five receptions in every game and just reached the end zone for the first time last Sunday. It looks as if Jones is becoming David Garrard’s favorite wide out in
Deuce finally became a part of the Saints offense in week four, receiving 20 carries that were good for 73 yards. The more important stat is that he found pay dirt once as well. McAllister’s knees look to be holding up so far in 2008, but don’t expect him to continue to get 20 carries a game as long as Reggie Bush is healthy.
Keep on Your Radar
Keller has now scored a touchdown in his last two games and you know how Brett Favre loves his tight ends. That is reason enough to watch the rookie out of Purdue closely. Though he only has six catches in four games, Keller has shown great hands and the ability to get down the field. Look for Keller to become a bigger part of the Jets offense in the second half of the season when Brett gains more chemistry with him and his grasp on the offense improves.
Start in Week Five
Bryant has been the favorite target of QB Brian Griese over the past two weeks and that should continue in week five against an overrated
