Fantasy Football: Week 4 Wide Receiver Rankings

Each week with the positional rankings, I’m going to offer Dallas Cowboys centered Fantasy Football information. I’ll offer you a breakdown of the matchup for your and my wide receivers. Make sure you go to to get the breakdowns on all the important match ups for the coming week.

Your Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver – Dez Bryant 

Cowboys Headlines - Dez Bryant Has Hairline Fracture, Hopeful To Play Sunday In San FranciscoThe last two weeks, the San Francisco 49ers have allowed number one receivers to make themselves comfortable in the secondary.

Kelvin Benjamin and Doug Baldwin had excellent games against the 49ers, each finishing with explosive weeks. Doug Baldwin went for 164 yards and one touchdown. Kelvin Benjamin went for 108 yards and two touchdowns.

Dez Bryant — if he plays — is set up to have a statistical explosion.

The coaching staff has righted what was wrong in week one and mixed up his route tree. He has more opportunities to catch the ball in the intermediate part of the field.

Flawless Forecast: Seven catches for 120 yards and one touchdown. 

Your Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver – Cole Beasley

Fantasy Football - #DallasCowboys Week 3 Fantasy Football ReviewThere was a time when I thought Cole Beasley was Dak Prescottdependent. Now I realize Beasley is a focal point in the passing game.

Beasley has taken the next step in his development. He has become this team’s number two receiver and it’s not even close. He has 17 more targets than Terrance Williams. Beasley leads the team in targets, yards, and catches.

The Dallas coaching staff has begun scheming pick-plays for Beasley as well as finding ways to get him open on deeper routes.

The San Francisco 49ers have allowed two players over 100 yards each of the last two weeks. If Dak Prescott spreads the ball around like he has the first three weeks, it will be another productive day for Cole Beasley.

Flawless Forecast: Six catches, 75 yards, one touchdown. 

Your Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver – Terrance Williams

Cowboys Headlines - Is Terrance Williams The Cowboys' Most-Hated Player? 2Terrance Williams has settled into the role he is most suited for… third wide receiver.

He’s a pretty good third receiver, but as we’ve found, he’s kinda underwhelming as a second receiver.

With Dez Bryant’s injury situation, Williams may be asked to play a bigger role than his four targets a game. If Dez Bryant sits this week, Williams is a Flex play, but still plays second fiddle to Cole Beasley.

Flawless Forecast: Three catches, 64 yards.
