Fantasy is a speculative game. Predict the future, and you look like a genius. Don’t, and you’re painfully human. Gazing into the crystal ball, here’s our view on six intriguing over/unders for Week 4.
Donning the DFS cap, what commodity is terribly UNDERVALUED in Week 4?
Liz – STEVE SMITH SR ($16). Leading the Ravens’ receiving corps in targets since Week 1, Smith put up fantasy WR2 numbers last Sunday, catching eight-of-11 balls for 87 yards. Against all odds, Smith has proven to be a dominant piece of this offense. He has another plus matchup in Week 4 vs. a Raiders squad that has allowed the most fantasy points to the position.
Scott – DWAYNE WASHINGTON ($10) managed a 10-38 line at Green Bay last week, which needs to be considered in the proper prism; the Packers parcel a mere 1.8 YPC on the year. The Bears have given up an ordinary 4.0 YPC and five rushing touchdowns; there’s an excellent chance Washington adds to those totals, and you’re getting in at the minimum price. Other potential booms: JORDAN HOWARD ($14), ZACH MILLER ($16), TYRELL WILLIAMS ($19).

Shuffle Up season is here, my friends. Here’s the idea — how would we rank fantasy players if the season were starting right now?
A few caveats up front. The prices are unscientific in nature, merely used as a way to compare players within their position. I do not compare prices outside of position — a price of a quarterback is only meant to be considered within his positional class. I am generally far less expectant with injury-returning players, so don’t be surprised when I like them less than you do.
Every Shuffle Up is done from scratch. I think it’s counterproductive to justify an old, dated list. I want my current opinions. I considered a modified PPR scoring system for the field players.
And of course, you’ll disagree with plenty on this list — that’s why we have a game in the first place.

Christine Michael: He ran for 106 yards and scored the first two touchdowns of his career in Week 3, and impressed while doing so even if it was a favorable matchup. Thomas Rawls is going to miss multiple weeks with a fibula injury, so there’s a big opportunity for Michael to take full control of Seattle’s backfield. The Seahawks’ immediate upcoming schedule isn’t ideal (@NYJ, bye), but it really eases up after that. Michael should be treated as an RB1 right now, and if a draft were held today, he’d be gone within the first three rounds, if not sooner.
