The Standouts Week 4
The Standouts is a weekly article put out by The Fantasy Bye Week. This article will focus on five standout performances from the week in fantasy, and will include an analysis of how repeatable the performance is.

Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars:
I’ve been saying for a few weeks how much I love the work he has been getting this year. Not only has he gotten the lions share of the carries, he has also been heavily involved in the passing game with 16 receptions on the season. In week 4 Fournette had 29 carries for an insane 225 yards, with an additional 20 yards on 2 receptions. Somehow he managed to not fall in the end zone after running the entire field two and a half times, which really would have been the icing on the cake. The workload that this guy gets makes him an every week starter, and he is on pace for a monster year.
Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons:
Hooper has been on a tear the past two weeks with 18 catches for almost 200 yards and 2 touchdowns. We knew this guy was a very nice PPR tight end after finishing top 10 at the position last year, but he has taken a big step forward so far this year. And at just 24 years old we haven’t seen the best of him yet. Hooper is currently on pace for 112 catches, 1,228 yards and 8 touchdowns, making him is a must start in all leagues.
Darrell Williams, Kansas City Chiefs:
There are mixed opinions on Darrell amongst fantasy experts. He had a very nice fantasy day, no doubt. 8 carries for 13 yards and 2 touchdowns and 3 grabs for 43 yards. My biggest fears are that the touchdowns seem fluky, and I’m nervous that once Damian Williams comes back there just won’t be enough work to go around. He is worth an add, and a potential starter in deeper leagues while Damian Williams is out, but be sure to keep your optimism in check.
AJ Brown, Tennessee Titans:
In week 4 Brown had 3 catches for 94 yards and 2 touchdowns, not a bad day at the office. I’ll be honest, this one makes me nervous. There have been flashes of great production like we saw in week 4, but there have also been periods where Brown just hasn’t seen enough work to be fantasy relevant. On the season he has not managed to top 5 targets. In a low volume passing offense the upside is really going to be limited, we can’t expect 2 touchdowns on 3 catches every week.
Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers:
There was a point late in the first half where I thought this dude was going for 250 yards. He didn’t quite get there, but he did catch 10 passes for 180 yards before exiting the game with a turf toe injury. The Packers have made a concerted effort to deploy a more balanced offense this year, and the turf toe injury needs to be monitored, but a game like this should alleviate any concerns that fantasy owners had about Davante’s production.
