Top 5 Fantasy Week 4 WR Streamers: Josh Palmer, Josh Reynolds, Richie James Jr., and More

It’s only Week 4 of the fantasy football season and our teams are already hanging on by a thread. With injuries to Amon-Ra St. Brown, Michael Thomas, Keenan Allen, Sterling Shepard, Gabe Davis, and a few others, we’ll need some reinforcements.

Here are five of our top fantasy Week 4 WR streamers to help you get by until your guy returns.

Fantasy Football Week 4 WR Rankings: Amari Cooper, Chris Olave, Brandon Aiyuk, Josh Reynolds & MORE


Update: Keenan Allen is OUT

Josh Palmer reminds me of last year’s Tim Patrick. He puts up consistent numbers every single week, but for some reason, he’s still available in nearly 75% of leagues. Over the last two weeks with Keenan Allen out of the lineup, Palmer’s seen 17 targets and finished with over 10 half PPR points. Allen left practice with trainers on Thursday and by all accounts, he should miss additional time after (possibly) re-aggravating his hamstring injury. Assuming Allen is out this week, Palmer is a smash spot stream against a hideous Texans secondary. Add him, now.


Isaiah McKenzie is owned in nearly half of leagues, so he may not be available in yours. Still, our guy broke out last week with 7-76-1 on nine targets, and this week he gets a rag-tag group of Ravens. To make McKenzie managers even more excited, Gabe “Daddy” Davis re-aggravated his ankle injury on Friday and he could miss Sunday’s action. If Davis sits again, McKenzie’s snaps will increase. The Ravens’ secondary has given up the most fantasy points and yardage to wideouts this season. Even if Davis suits up, McKenzie is still a solid streaming option.


It seems that Zay Jones is still available in 71% of leagues because of his name and his past. Well, if you want a top target in an ascending offense, then forget about his past and add him to your roster. Jones ranks second behind only Christian Kirk in targets (27 to 24) and has established himself as the second rung from the top on Trevor Lawrence’s target totem pole. People seem to be avoiding the Eagles’ defense, but did we forget about Jared Goff putting up 35 points on them in Week 1? There could be fireworks in Philly on Sunday.


As an Amon-Ra St. Brown manager, it pains me to put him on my bench this week. Luckily, I maintain a big brain and have Drake London to put in his spot. But, if you need a streamer and want to stay in Detroit, then Josh Reynolds is your guy. Reynolds had streamable weeks last year and has seemingly built a solid rapport with Jared Goff. Last week, Reynolds saw 10 targets and responded with six receptions for 96 yards. Seattle is no longer the ‘Legion of Boom’ and I’d definitely feel comfortable trotting Reynolds out there. No St. Brown and no Swift mean targets galore.


Richie James Jr. is easily the least sexy name on this list. Yet, he’s a consistent PPR threat. Even with Sterling Shepard and the rest of the up-and-down Giants’ crew active in spurts, James is second on the team in targets with 17. Now with Shepard definitely out, and Wan’Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toney likely out, James could turn into the target hog on the perimeter. His talent doesn’t jump off the tv at all, but he gets it done. He’s primarily a target in full-PPR leagues only.

OTHERS TO TARGET: Jarvis Landry (37%), Greg Dortch (29%), Mack Hollins (27%), Tre’Quan Smith (0%), KJ Osborn (7%), DeAndre Carter (4%)
