The Top TEs To Start in Week 4

Sam LaPorta, TE, Detroit Lions

Don’t look now, but Sam LaPorta has emerged as a reliable fantasy football starter this season!

MORE: Fantasy News Tracker

The rookie TE out of Iowa now has 22 targets through three contests, and he’s ended each week so far as a top-12 TE for fantasy.

At this point, there’s no reason why LaPorta should be still sitting on your bench. Play him with confidence moving forward.

Luke Musgrave, TE, Green Bay Packers

If you’re looking for a streaming TE this week, Luke Musgrave is still sitting out there on the majority of waiver wires. He’s coming off of a solid performance in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints with eight targets and a top-12 fantasy finish and that momentum should keep rolling into Week 4.

There’s normally a waiting period for rookie TEs before we start to see them produce from a fantasy standpoint, but Musgrave’s bucking that trend.
