So you think you're perfect, eh? Well, don't just talk about it. Be about it. Prove to your friends and (more importantly) strangers you'll never meet that you're a fantasy football genius. Every week set the perfect fantasy lineup for your chance to win one million dollars. You could use a million dollars, right? Right. Haven't joined NFL Perfect Challenge yet? Don't worry, you can get started in just a few seconds RIGHT HERE.
At first blush, Franchise's lineup in Week 4 looks a little chalky. But there's nothing wrong with that. After all, there's a reason that certain players get a lot of looks -- because they're good. Nearly all of the men Franchise selected are solidly within the top 10 at their respective positions. There are two exceptions and they might not be the ones you'd expect ... DeAndre Hopkins (WR16) and Allen Robinson (WR23). But considering the talents of those two receivers, it's not hard to imagine a scenario where they both explode for a plethora of fantasy points in Week 4.
After a poor Week 3 against the Vikings, Cam Newton seems poised to rebound against a leaky Falcons defense. Melvin Gordon will be a popular pick this week thanks to his hot start to the season and Gelhar is one of the many people excited about the return of Le'Veon Bell. Add a pair of stud receivers in A.J. Green and Allen Robinson with a dash of Kyle Rudolph and you have the makings of an intriguing Perfect Challenge lineup. Although that Texans defense looks a little different without J.J. Watt.
Andrew Luck, eh? Harmon believes the Colts can take advantage of the Jaguars defense. Why not? Everyone else has so far. David Johnson (no matter what) and a reinstated Le'Veon Bell look like solid choices to get big workloads and production even against decent defenses. A.J. Green on a Thursday night looks like a bold play, but the Dolphins secondary hasn't put up much of a fight this season. Then there's Allen Robinson ... because Matt Harmon. Round it out with the much-targeted Dennis Pitta and that's a potentially productive and outside-the-box lineup.
Each week, I'm trying to cherry pick the games I think will have the most offense and this week I've landed on the Saints/Chargers matchup. Both offenses have been playing at a high level while neither defense has been particularly great. Thus the Philip Rivers/Melvin Gordon combination. The Titans are allowing 4.3 yards per carry -- a number that likely would be higher had they not sold out to stop Adrian Peterson in Week 1 -- thus Lamar Miller. Marvin Jones, Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen against a pair of porous defenses? Yes please. I'll also roll with the Texans defense against a dreadfully unwatchable Titans offense. And Cairo Santos ... because.
