Larry Fitzgerald Hopes To Keep 2009 Fantasy Football Form Rolling in Week 4

Receivers might be the toughest position to predict due to the tremendous depth at the position. It’s important to choose receivers that are likely to get the most targets on any given week. That being said, a potent secondary could nullify any big time receiving threat, which makes match-ups even more crucial. Here’s a look at a few receivers to look out for in Week 4.

3 Must-Start Wide Receivers This Week

Larry Fitzgerald – Arizona Cardinals
Wrist StretchFitz has resurfaced to his normal self over the last two weeks, totaling an absurd 246 yards and five touchdowns. Arizona has looked very good at home this year, and the Rams defense isn’t great at defending the pass. With the Cardinals unable to establish a consistent running game, Fitzgerald should get over 100 yards again this week at home.

Amari Cooper – Oakland Raiders
Wrist StretchCarr has shown a deep affection toward Cooper in all three games this season, and Oakland faces Chicago on the road this week. The Bears’ secondary isn’t capable of slowing down anyone, let alone a stud like Cooper. Expect Cooper and potentially Michael Crabtree to get plenty of looks against this lowly Bears defense.

Brandin Cooks – New Orleans Saints
Wrist StretchMost people drafted Cooks as a WR1 because of the preseason hype he received, but he simply hasn’t lived up to it yet. His quarterback, Drew Brees, got hurt and Luke McCown replaced him somewhat adequately (surprisingly) last week. On Sunday night, the Saints play at home versus the Cowboys, who have dealt with their fair share of injuries as well. Cooks hasn’t recorded a touchdown yet this season, but expect that to change against Dallas.

Calvin Johnson – Detroit Lions
Wrist StretchDetroit’s quarterback Matthew Stafford was incredibly average last Sunday fantasy-wise, going for 286 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. The Lions are playing in Seattle on Monday night, meaning cornerback Richard Sherman will be hunting for receivers to lock down. It might be wise to avoid all Lions pass catchers this week, especially the one most likely to match-up with Sherman.

Ted Ginn Jr. – Carolina Panthers
Wrist StretchAfter Kelvin Benjamin tore his ACL at the beginning of the season, the Panthers passing attack took a huge blow and needed someone to fill the deep threat role. Ginn, in his second stint with Carolina, has been impressive through three games. His 93 yards last week included a near TD, meaning he was inches from another 6 fantasy points. Playing in Tampa Bay, Ginn could be poised for another breakout game, especially if the Buccaneers primarily focus on Panthers tight end Greg Olsen.
