Week four saw a lot less superstar moments in fantasy football, but there were still some eye popping moments on Sept. 29. Victor Cruz remained one of the top fantasy football receiver options in week four, despite his team losing big to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Here is a look at which wide receivers were hot and which were not in fantasy football week four.
Hot - Victor Cruz
The Kansas City Chiefs blew out the New York Giants, which meant the Giants had to throw the ball a lot to try to catch up. Only Victor Cruz benefited from this, as he caught 10 receptions for 164 yards and the Giants' only touchdown.
Not - Roddy White
Matt Ryan threw for over 400 yards in his game, and Roddy White only finished with three receptions for 28 yards. It is clear he is hurting bad and his injuries have made him a non-factor in fantasy football.
Hot - Wes Welker
It was not hard to fathom that a Peyton Manning and Wes Welker pairing could be great, but some still had doubts. Those should be erased by now. Welker finished this week with seven receptions for 76 yards and two touchdowns. He is on pace for another 100 reception season and an eye-popping 20 touchdowns.
Not - Stevie Johnson
This is an unusual stat for a team's number one receiver. The Buffalo Bills won their game against the Baltimore Ravens, and their starting receiver Johnson finished with only one reception for negative one yards. In non-PPR fantasy football leagues, that is a goose egg.
Hot - Demaryius Thomas
Just like Wes Welker, Thomas is rolling in the Peyton Manning show. He finished this week with nine receptions for 86 yards and two touchdowns. He is actually on pace for more receptions than Welker, and just a few less touchdowns.
Not - DeSean Jackson
The Philadelphia Eagles were blown out by the Denver Broncos, and while that made it look like they should have been throwing the ball a lot to come back from behind, Michael Vick had a bad game. The means that DeSean Jackson also had a bad game, with two receptions for 34 yards.
Hot - Torrey Smith
The Baltimore Ravens lost, but they rallied, which meant they threw the ball a lot. Torry Smith was the recipient of most of the passing action, with five receptions for 166 yards and a touchdown on the day.
