What a time to be alive if you drafted your franchise QB at the top of the 2018 NFL Draft. You had Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen all to pick from and all of whom went out and won this week. Imagine if your team had an aging QB who was 37 years old showing significant decline in play and with the 2nd overall pick in this past draft, you decided the clear choice was a running back. Man. That team would be crazy to do something like that. So guess what Giants fans? I have started the preliminary work on a mock draft (to debut at the end of the season) and I have you guys actually taking a QB. But enough of that for now, let’s see what happened in a couple of the games yesterday.

God this is my favorite time of the year. Pumpkin beer on the shelves. Hoodie and shorts temperatures outside. Baseball playoffs. NHL regular season is underway. And last but not least, it is key waiver wire time for fantasy football season. The window where the top teams rise and the bad teams take their rightful place in the basement of the standings. For now, let’s preview the games coming up this week as I have tickets to see Venom later tonight and I have no idea whether Tom Hardy can top the impeccable performance that Topher Grace had playing Eddie Brock all those years ago.

Heading into Week 4, we can all agree on one thing: Josh Allen looks absolutely amazing in shorts. He is fully trusting the process the Bills and Sean McDermott have been preaching. The Titans currently have zero healthy QB’s, but that won’t stop them from being tied for the division lead in the AFC South. Dallas still stinks at throwing the ball to the point where they should be looking at QB’s in the upcoming draft. Also, the Cowboys have 4 TD’s on the entire season. So there’s that. Let’s get into some of the important games this weekend for fantasy.

I woke up Sunday morning with the idea that the most enjoyable part of my day was going to be the 5 hours of smoking pork chops (they were fantastic, thank you for asking) and spare ribs throughout the Bills-Vikings game that was surely to be a blowout. Then the game started and Josh Allen did his Superman TD dive for the opening score. Then the Bills forced a turnover and scored again. And again. And again. Eventually I was so enamored with Allen that I forgot to put more wood chips on the charcoal (Applewood for you smoking enthusiasts who were dying to know what wood I was using). I still am in shock as to what happened in that game and how it all unfolded, but let’s dive into that one to start and go through a couple other games afterwards.

Last night’s game was one of the most depressing first half performances I’ve seen in quite some time. Tyrod Taylor looked exactly like the Tyrod who lost to Saints and Jags last season while he was manning the helm in Buffalo. We were all witnesses to Baker Mayfield and his greatness and why he was QB1 for me going into the draft (all the Baker haters can take a seat on the bench at this point). Looking forward, this week presents us with the biggest point spread in the NFL so far this season (Minnesota is laying 16.5 hosting my lowly Bills this week) and I cannot be more excited to watch another blowout with quality garbage-time Bills scoring. Here are some of the games with interesting fantasy tidbits.

LeSean McCoy suffered some severely bruised ribs, so his status moving forward will be murky at best. For those of you unsure if it’s worth picking up his backup, the name to keep an eye on is Marcus Murphy. I know Chris Ivory scored the rushing TD this week, but anyone who follows the Bills knows that Murphy is the real #2 back here and is much more of a threat in the underneath passing game. Rookie QB Josh Allen looked great in shorts before the game and threw a flailing duck 61 yards downfield in another example of him displaying the strongest arm in the NFL already. I don’t mind it in 2QB leagues if you need to use him as a reserve or bye-week fill-in. By the time your starters will be taking their bye weeks, Allen will be working through a much easier schedule for pass defenses. I know I’m going to get killed for this, but there are rumblings that Zay Jones is a preferred target for Allen, and if you need a sneaky waiver wire pickup this week, Jones wouldn’t be the worst option in the world.

Hey there Razzballers,

Reid here kicking off my season-long series for those of you who love to live life on the edge.

I guess a little background on the name of this post should be included since 100% of you are sitting there thinking “Who the hell is ‘Bojo’ and why should I take anything this guy says seriously?”

Great questions. Let me explain. Bojo is the nickname for an Old Niagara Falls man who has a reputation for being quite savvy with line movements and getting to the heart of the games. So I’m sitting down with him to get some of his best bets each week (2 best bets and 1 upset). I will be adding a DFS player to target for each of the games brought up as well. So let’s get to the games and see where Bojo wants to look at this week:

Hey Razzballers,

Reid here to drop some Week 1 hot takes for everyone. I’m going to be running roughly 5 hot takes a week on this segment so I don’t go out of control. Some weeks there may be fewer, depending on how spicy it is in Buffalo. But for now, let’s get going with this week.

Nick Foles actually performs well in the first three weeks, but is NOT worth a roster spot after Week 3.

The reasoning is quite simple on this one. Nobody in the NFL has an easier schedule for Weeks 1-3 regarding passing defense than the Eagles (The most difficult schedule in that stretch is the Bills). On the flip side, the Eagles have the 2nd toughest passing defense schedule from Week 4 to the remainder of the season.
