Thursday, September 26, 2013 Week 4 Running Back Pick-ups

Please to enjoy: Some running back picks courtesy of


The bye weeks begin in Week 4 this season, so many fantasy football owners are already looking to shake things up a bit. Whether you need a spot starter or you want to go a different direction with a guy who is struggling, here are three guys to target for Week 4.

Bilal Powell

The secret is starting to get out about Powell, as he exploded for 149 yards on the ground against the Buffalo Bills. Still, he is available in about 65% of leagues right now, and he is worth the gamble. Chris Ivory is having health issues, which means that Powell will be forced to carry a bigger load. Even if he is not as good as he was against the Bills each week, he will still provide plenty of value.

Jacquizz Rodgers

Rodgers is another guy that still is hanging out on the waiver wire in far too many fantasy football leagues. He is the lead running back for the foreseeable future in Atlanta, as Steven Jackson is pretty banged up. Jason Snelling is a solid player who is an even bigger sleeper owned by virtually no one right now, but Rodgers is the option to take if available.

Danny Woodhead

Hidden in San Diego, Woodhead is quietly starting to make a name for himself in fantasy football circles. Ryan Mathews gets the majority of the touches, but Woodhead does enough with his workload that he is worth a risk. He is also targeted by Philip Rivers a decent amount of times as well, so he could pick up some fantasy football value there. Chances are he is available in your league, and against the Cowboys, he should have some openings.
