5 fantasy stats to know from Week 4

It’s easy to look at the box scores and make conclusions about fantasy performance, but the numbers often don’t tell the whole story. Each week, I’ll dig a little deeper and pull out some need-to-know stats that will help you dominate your league.


1. Duke Johnson scored 0.84 PPR fantasy points per opportunity.

Johnson finally got things going in Week 4 to the tune of nine catches for 85 yards and a score in addition to 35 yards rushing. However, his fantasy points per opportunity really stands out.
