The Rookies in this year’s fantasy season has been dominating so far. One name that is now a household name to all fantasy owners is Kareem Hunt. Hunt has been taking the league by storm as he has been destroying opposing defenses. Other rookies have been solid, but not as solid as Kareem Hunt. With that being said here is the rookie report for week four.
Rookies To Play
RB Leonard Fournette
Leonard Fournette has been a huge help to Jacksonville’s offense so far in 2017. The rookie has been a consistent fantasy performer so far for the Jaguars. He also is getting a lot of touches per game, which is taking the pressure off of Blake Bortles.
Fournette has a touchdown in every game that he has played in the NFL so far. Look for him to do more of the same in week four on the road against the Jets.
WR Kenny Golladay
After week one’s coming out game Golladay has not been as effective for the Lions. Golladay has played some tough defenses the past two weeks, and should bounce back in week four. Minnesota’s defense is solid, but they allow a lot of yards to the second and third option guys.
Look for Golladay to get a lot of targets, and for him to be a very valuable flex option in week four.
Rookies To Avoid
RB Dalvin Cook
The Minnesota Vikings rookie running back had a solid week three game against the Buccaneers. Now in week four Cook and the Vikings take on the Detroit Lions at home. Detroit’s run defense is solid and could give Dalvin Cook some serious trouble.
Look for Cook to be used more out of the backfield in passing situations rather than as a huge part of the running game. Keep Cook out of your lineup this week.
WR Zay Jones
Zay Jones has not broken out like the Buffalo Bills hoped he would have. Jones only has three receptions on the season, and has struggle to pull in some of his targets. The Bills need more out of the rookie wide receiver, especially since they do not have a good receiver core for Tyrod Taylor.
Look for Jones to struggle again in week four against the Atlanta Falcons at Atlanta. The Falcons secondary is a tough young group, and they will provide pressure on the rookie wide receiver.
