This is the Fantasy Nerd's look at the best and worst matchups for Week 4 of the 2022 NFL season. Analysis is aggregated from multiple sources including FN. Rankings are based upon PPR (point per reception) scoring. Given the known conditions, these matchups are the ones to watch and/or avoid.
Please Note: This list does not generally include the elite players that you are going to start regardless of matchup. You don't need us to tell you to start Jonathan Taylor, Travis Kelce, or Cooper Kupp. Instead, we take a look at other players on your team that we believe either have great matchups or should be avoided for multiple reasons. Factors like opposing defense, performance trending, and peer comparisons may influence our decisions.

great write-up as usual! Not sure I could start olave with no winston or russ wilson until that offense shows me more, but alas, i have another question... would you dare start kamara in a full pt PPR league over Hollywood Brown or Romeo Doubs? I'd like to think if Dalton starts he'll actually dumpoff to Kamara, but that Oline is so bad right now I'm not sure I can start him over those other guys...? thanks!

I'm in a similar situation with Kamara. I'm starting Kamara but I'm not as confident as in years past. I can see the case for Hollywood here though.
mrock CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:23 pm
I would start Marquise Brown but if you do that then Kamara will have a big game. LOL

Do I bench CMC or Lenny for Jamaal Williams or Pierce? I can play 3 of them. Also need a WR2 option of Cooks, Hollywood, Gabe Davis, Doubs, Dotson
mrock CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:24 pm
I would not bench McCaffrey but I would put Williams in for Fournette.
Nerd CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:45 pm
I would probably still go CMC, Fournette, Williams, and Pierce in that order.
I'd play Hollywood out of those WR options. Good luck!

Do I bench Mike Williams for Doubs or Dotson or stay with Williams?
mrock CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:25 pm
Stay with Williams
Nerd CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:46 pm
No Keenan Allen this week. I'd still roll with Mike Williams. Good luck!
mrock CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:26 pm
On the main slate for Fan Duel, would you pick Kyler Murray instead of Justin Herbert? They both have the same number of prj pts but Murray is $200 less.
Nerd CommentedOct 1, 2022 4:47 pm
A case can be made for both, but I'd take Murray and put that $200 against another position. Good luck!

Bateman (worried about weather) or Akers?
Nerd CommentedOct 2, 2022 8:49 am
I'd play Bateman
Robsta CommentedOct 2, 2022 8:44 am
K Allen and M Thomas both out this week, so I need to pick TWO of these players in the FLEX.
Javonte Williams , J Robinson, C Samuel or R Doubs.
Am leaning Williams and Robinson?
Nerd CommentedOct 2, 2022 8:50 am
That's where I'm leaning as well
Ryan Peart CommentedOct 2, 2022 9:36 am
Do I go with rashad penny or James Conner this week

Since I had to sit Kamara, I now have an interesting dilemna... 1pt. PPR league... start 2 from CPatterson, EElliott, TPollard, RDoubs or MGallup? If Patterson starts I think I go Patt and Doubs, but if Patterson doesn't start, I'm thinking maybe I go Zeke and Pollard against the hapless Skins and get ALL the Cowboys backfield points... thoughts? (Also thinking let Gallup get a game under his belt before I start him, although I see Dallas destroying the skins today in every facet...) Thanks!
Nerd CommentedOct 2, 2022 10:55 am
I'm with you on Cordarrelle Patterson but I might go Zeke over Doubs. If Patterson doesn't go, then I agree - go with the DAL backfield. Also - I'm with you and waiting on Gallup to see how his first game goes. Good luck!

THANKS GOOD LUCK IN WEEK 4!
