Week 4 Rankings

Dameon Pierce Note

Pierce has had a brutal start to the season, but it could begin to turn around this week. His offensive line hasn't helped him much, and while it remains banged up, the matchup is pretty pretty good. Pierce has played 45-54% of the snaps weekly, averaging 15.6 touches and 47 total yards. Pittsburgh has allowed the eighth-highest explosive run rate, the ninth-highest missed tackle rate, and the second-highest yards after contact per attempt. Pittsburgh has given up the second-highest yards per carry to zone runs (Pierce 75% zone). Houston should look to feed Pierce this week and keep the pass rush heat off Stroud. Week 4 Positional Value: Borderline RB2/3

Nico Collins Note

Collins is the WR21 in fantasy points per game. Over the last two weeks, he has a 15.6% Target share, a 19.8% air yard share, and a 23.1% first-read share (second on the team). Collins began the season by smashing in Weeks 1 & 2, but he has taken a step back to Tank Dell since he hit the starting lineup. Collins will run about 80% of his routes against Patrick Peterson (56.3% catch rate and 94.3 passer rating) and Levi Wallace (64% catch rate and 82.4 passer rating). Week 4 Positional Value: WR2/3

Tank Dell Note

Dell is that dude. He immediately supplanted Collins as the team's WR1 once he hit the starting lineup. Over the last two weeks, he has had a 22.1% Target share (first), a 33.0% air yard share (first), and a 25% first-read share (first). He's done all of this while producing 3.35 YPRR while running 70% of his routes on the perimeter. This is king-level stuff here. Don't dismiss Dell anymore because of size, draft capital, or anything ridiculous reason. He can play, and he's showing the world that, like Stroud, he's the real deal. Dell will see Peterson and Wallace in coverage on most of his routes. Week 4 Positional Value: WR2/3

Robert Woods Note

Over the last two games, Woods has a 19.5% Target share, a 26.4% air-yard share, and 1.61 YPRR as the dependable WR3 of this offense. Woods ranks third in first-read share with 21.2%. Woods will run about 55% of his routes from the slot against Minkah Fitzpatrick (60% catch rate and 67.9 passer rating. Week 4 Positional Value: WR4/5

Dalton Schultz Note

Schultz is the lowly fourth receiving option for Houston. Over the last two games, he has had an 11.7% Target share, an 11.5% first read share, and 0.84 YPRR. The matchup is terrible for Schultz. Pittsburgh has allowed the seventh-fewest receiving yards and zero touchdowns to tight ends. Week 4 Positional Value: Must-sit TE2
