RotoExperts: Week 4 Fantasy Rankings

BCLions.com

Week 4 may finally be the week BC’s Jonathon Jennings and Emmanuel Arceneaux deliver on the high salaries that have left Fantasy owners dismayed over the lack of production thus far. The Lions face a Ticats team that has allowed 34.5 points per game in their first two losses while also giving up an average of 443 passing yards to Ricky Ray (Argonauts) and Kevin Glenn (Roughriders) in the process.

Jennings ($11,625) has accounted for just two touchdowns in his first three games. Arceneaux has yet to see the end zone and has caught only 14 passes for 155 yards, numbers that are falling well short of his $7804 salary. Overdue? Yes, yet how many Fantasy owners are willing to take another plunge uncertain of whether the two Lions standouts will start clicking like the two All-Stars they are?

With Edmonton returning from their first open week of the season, the question of replacing running back John White, lost for the season in Week 2, will be answered by the presence of Travon Van as they take on the winless REDBLACKS. Van ($3,577) filled in well after replacing White in the win over Montreal and should be one of the biggest bargains of the week. The position gets a boost in quality with the return of Calgary’s Roy Finch ($3,707), who comes back to the Stampeders following a two-week suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Ross Scheuerman ($2,500) is a high-risk, high-reward option as the young Ticats back is expected to get his second start in place of C.J. Gable.

One of the stories of the young season has been the play of the Toronto defence, which leads the league in sacks and is second in interceptions and forced fumbles. The Argos will be challenged by a Winnipeg offence looking to bounce back from last week’s sluggish effort in the loss to Calgary, but at $3,880, the unit has intriguing potential.
