Baltimore -13 over Washington. The Ravens were embarrassed on Monday Night but are still averaging 30 points a game. Washington has allowed over 150 yards rushing in each of it's last two games. It could be 250 on Sunday with a motivated Ravens team. The Baltimore blitz will feast on Haskins as he faces the biggest test of his young career.
New Orleans -4 over Detroit. The Saints are still a very talented football team and now they are small favorites against Detroit. Expect Kamara to run wild against a Lions defense that ranks 29th in the NFL. Not only is there a pretty wide gap in talent between these two rosters, the coaching gap is even wider. I will take Sean Payton and the Saints.
Chicago +2.5 over Indianapolis. The Colts sit at 2-1 after starting the season against the Jaguars, Vikings, and Jets. The last time the Colts played on the road, it didn't end well in Jacksonville. Now they travel to the Windy City as favorites. Matt Nagy gets to open the playbook now that Nick Foles is running the offense. This seems like a one possession game, and my money is on Nick Foles not on Philip Rivers in that spot.
LA Rams -12.5 over NY Giants. The Rams are rolling with McVay ranking in the top 3 in most statistical categories. If it wasn't for the Jets, the Giants would be last. New York couldn't keep it competitive with the 49ers JV team, and now is traveling across the country to face one of the hottest offenses in the NFL. Two touchdowns isn't enough in the league where scoring is up 6 points per game. Favorites laying 7.5 or more are 5-1 ATS in 2020, and that number will be continue to climb after this one is settled.
Arizona -3 over Carolina. This is a situational spot that has produced a short line I am happy to take advantage of. The Cardinals are coming off a bad loss to the Lions where Murray threw 3 picks, while Carolina comes home after upsetting the Chargers. Even if Hopkins can't go, the Cardinals offense should shred a Panthers defense that allowed 34 and 30 the first two weeks of the season.

As we approach the 2nd third of the 2020 Fantasy Football season, some questions have already been answered while a few have yet to be solved. One thing is for sure, there have been a lot of explosive performances in a trend that should continue this week. Here are some of my Stars for Week 4........
Nick Foles - Yes, BDN is back and looking like the Nick of old. Sure, it was only 1 game, but the explosive part of his game was unleashed. The Colts have been stingy on defense giving up only 132 yards per game to opposing QBs. However, the Chicago offense has the pieces to help BDN shatter that number.
Kenyan Drake - Just like Lou Brown said in the classic movie Major League, I know he hasn't had much success as of late, but I have a hunch he's due. Caroline has given up the leagues most rushing TDs with 7 and the Drake should make it at least 8.
Cooper Kupp - There were a lot of whispers about who would be the #1 in LA, but Cooper Kupp has made it an invalid argument. His targets have gone up by +8 over the first 3 weeks and he faces a NY Giants team that gave up 343 yards to Nick Mullens. Enough said!
Bust of the Week: Kirk Cousins - I have ZERO faith in Kirk this week against a Texans defense that is better than you may think. They have played the Chiefs, Ravens, and Steelers and still have not given up 100 yards to an opposing WR. This defense is legit.

All eyes will be on Carson Wentz Sunday night to see if he can finally turn his season around. After throwing 3 TDs and 6 INTs over his first 3 games, Wentz needs to have at the very least an average performance. The Eagles need to allow Miles Sanders to shoulder the load and take some pressure off his quarterback. The starting to receivers look to be Greg Ward (who had 8 catches last week), John Hightower and Deontay Burnett. The team's WR group is in no better shape than they were at the end of last season, this time without Dallas Goedert. Let's hope the Eagles can get the offense moving against a 49er defense without Nick Bosa or Richard Sherman.
Defensively, Philadelphia should have an easier day. After having 8 sacks last week, the defensive line should be able to get after Nick Mullens. San Francisco's rushing attack is also questionable at best with Tevin Coleman on IR, Mostert spraining his MCL in Week 2 and McKinnon banged up as well. The Eagles defense is currently ranked 5th in total yards allowed, I'd expect that trend to continue on Sunday night.
