It’s time for weekly bold predictions. The point here is that if you follow the consensus, you’re probably going to have a good team. But in order to go from good to great, you have to take some chances. You have to do your homework and figure out where you can zig when the rest of your league (or at least your opponent this week) zags. In short, you need to know how and when to be bold.
We asked our analysts to provide a bold prediction for Week 4. Here are all their hot takes. And below we dive into a few notable players mentioned.

Fantasy Football Bold Predictions
“After fantasy finishes of QB-15, QB-20, and QB-24 in the first three weeks, Justin Fields owners are beginning to panic. Fields has only rushed for 109 yards in three games. I think the game script and the Denver defense present a golden opportunity for Fields to do what he does best, which is run the ball. I think he will accomplish what he did four times last season and finish this game with at least 100 rushing yards. ”

“Javonte Williams will finish a Top15 back this week. Williams has 36 rushing attempts compared to Perine’s 12 so far in 2023. The Denver Broncos now get to face a struggling Bears defense that allows 29.7 FPPG to the running back position this year.”

“Kyren Williams finishes as a top 3 RB this week. He has one of the most insane usage rates of any RB in the league and a nice matchup against a mediocre Colts defense. It’s being played in a dome, and he should be involved as a pass catcher, too, so he’s got a great chance at a great week.”
