The Fantasy Fixers discuss the biggest news stories from Week 4, the injury impact on several key players, and potential waiver wire targets. Additionally, we look at who are the biggest fantasy football surprises and busts at each position as we complete Week 4, the quarter mark of the 2019 season. Who should fantasy owners rush to place a claim for as we head into Week 5? Our hosts break it all down for you and a whole lot more this week on the Fantasy Fixers podcast.
Pick Up City
Looking for a quarterback to help sting the pain of drafting Kirk Cousins? This week’s waiver wire has some options for fantasy owners. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston had a huge Week 4 with 385 passing yards and four touchdowns. The Fantasy Fixers is one of the top options for fantasy owners, as well as Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew, led the Jaguars to a comeback victory over the Denver Broncos in Week 4 and Minshew Mania should be added to your roster.
Ronald Jones is finally living up to his hype with 82 scrimmage yards and a touchdown. The Fantasy Fixers believe Jones has taken over the featured back role over Peyton Barber. The Fantasy Fixers like what they saw with the Philadelphia Eagles Jordan Howard. His stock is rising and looks to have upside in that Eagles offense and on your fantasy lineups.
If you are looking to add players, fantasy football owners have to drop a player off their roster. The Fantasy Fixers suggest dropping quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is having a horrible season. The Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson has the look of a roster casualty with an injury keeping him out for a multi-game absence. All fantasy owners are aware of the great news on the return of Melvin Gordon, which will also deem Jackson expendable on fantasy rosters. Also, find out which Chicago Bears wide receiver has been a disappointment and can be dropped?

The Fantasy Fixers take a look at each position and ask the question, who do you love in Week 5?
