Fantasy Land: Stud and Dud For Week 4



    With three weeks under your fantasy football belts, you're probably starting to get a good idea of where you team stands in your league and starting to see if your draft was a success or a huge failure.

    Stud of the Week

    LaDanian Tomlinson, RB, New York Jets: Well, if you were one of the lucky souls that grabbed LaDainian Tomlinson in the later rounds, your team is likely looking pretty good right now.

    Tomlinson has found new life with the New York Jets, basically supplanting second-year runner Shonn Greene, who was supposed to have a breakout year this year. Not so fast. Tomlinson is the starter now for arguably the best running team in the NFL and he's nearing 6 yards per carry through the first three games.

    This week, Tomlinson has the ultimate matchup against the horrible Buffalo Bills. Look for Tomlinson and Greene to have pretty good days, but Tomlinson will be the star here, and he should without a doubt be in your starting lineup.

    Dud of the Week

    Matt Schaub, QB, Houston: Schaub is coming off an un-Schaub like performance against the Cowboys on Sunday, and this week's matchup against the Oakland Raiders just wreaks of mediocrity. Schaub could be without his go-to guy, Andre Johnson, who's probably the top receiver in the football and is battling a high ankle sprain. And on top of that, the Raiders have the No. 2 pass defense in the NFL led by possibly the best cover corner in the league, Nnamdi Asomugha although Darrelle Revis could have something to say about that. It's just not looking for a good week for Schaub, as the Texans will likely rely on Arian Foster and the ground game to carry them to victory.
