Week 4 Top Fantasy Football Streamers: Can Mack Hollins Continue To Thrive?

Matt Brandon Sep 29th 2:31 PM EDT.

Following his beastly performance in Week 3 (29.96 PPR points), Mack Hollins could be one of the top streaming wide receivers in Week 4 as the Las Vegas Raiders take on the Denver Broncos in a pivotal rivalry within the AFC West division. 

People often ask me what the difference is between adding someone on the waiver wire and a streaming option. The answer is simple. When you are scrounging the waiver wire, you are going to prioritize the players who have positive fantasy outlooks for weeks to come. Perhaps Christian McCaffrey goes down for a few weeks and the Panthers need to turn to Chuba Hubbard. Hubbard would be the perfect waiver wire pickup in that situation since he would effectively be an RB2 in fantasy due to volume alone. However, sometimes it makes sense to simply add a player because they have a juicy matchup on the horizon. These are called streamers. The most common position fantasy owners stream are defense, but it still happens at other positions every week.

Now that we have our explanation out of the way, let’s examine the top streaming options to consider as we gear up for Week 4 of the NFL season. The undefeated Miami Dolphins will kick things off when they face the 1-2 Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football tonight. 


Geno Smith, Seattle Seahawks

Geno is quietly having a very impressive season and he gets a very favorable matchup against a Detroit Lions defense that has been absolutely shredded this season, allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. This is a dream matchup for Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks. Despite losing to the Atlanta Falcons last week, Smith put up monster numbers: 325 yards and two passing touchdowns. Considering how explosive the Lions are on offense and how poor Seattle’s defense is, Geno is going to have to air it out if Pete Carrol wants to keep this game competitive. If you are needy at quarterback, you could certainly do worse than Geno Smith.

Cooper Rush, Dallas Cowboys

Rush is not a sexy name nor does he have playmaking ability with his legs but he’s managing to get it done despite the absence of his WR2 in Michael Gallup. Rush has completed 62.7% of his passes this season for 514 yards and two touchdowns with no picks. With at least one more week before Dak Prescott retakes charge of the offense, Rush has a favorable matchup at home against a Washington Commanders defense that has forced only one turnover all season. Not to mention, through the first three weeks of the season, the Commanders have permitted the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Rush should take advantage of Washington’s weak secondary and find CeeDee Lamb and Noah Brown all day.

Running Backs

Craig Reynolds Jr., Detroit Lions

With D’Andre Swift likely out of the lineup, Reynolds will get some playing time behind starter Jamaal Williams. Fortunately for this Detroit backfield, they face a Seattle Seahawks defense that has allowed the second-most rushing yards and 11th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Although Williams is clearly the superior play, there were times last season when Swift was injured that Reynolds outproduced Williams. So don't count out this third-string Detroit Lion.

Raheem Mostert, Miami Dolphins

Although Chase Edmonds has outproduced Mostert thus far this season, it hasn’t been by a significant margin. Edmonds has just 79 rushing yards on 23 carries though he does have two touchdowns. He has also hauled in six receptions for an additional 54 yards. Edmonds will continue to be in the lineup but Mostert appears to be eating into his touches. Mostert has 24 rushing attempts of his own this season. Although the former San Francisco 49er has yet to break out, it could be his time to pull away from Edmonds on the depth chart in Week 4. The Dolphins take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football tonight and Cincinnati’s defense has been stout. They have allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. However, a few more holes may open up at the line of scrimmage due to the fact that DT DJ Reader has been ruled out. Not to mention, LB Germaine Pratt is questionable for this contest, which will only help Mostert more. Mostert is a touchdown-dependent player at the moment but he has significant upside due to his ability to get into the end zone inside the five-yard line.

Wide Receivers

Mack Hollins, Las Vegas Raiders

Heading into the 2022 season, everyone and their mother thought that Darren Waller or Hunter Renfrow would be the ones to benefit from the double teams that Davante Adams draws. 

Through three games this season, Hollins has matched Waller in targets and touchdowns while outpacing him in receptions and yardage. You have to consider starting Hollins each and every week moving forward after he finished with 29.96 PPR fantasy points in Week 3. Now in his fifth season, Hollins had never separated himself from his competition enough in previous years so much that he’d never started more than three games in a season, and he already has a career-high in season-long receiving yards this year. So far this season, Hollins seems to have taken a major step in the right direction. He’s a serious deep threat due to his combination of strength and speed. Hollins also has the perfect mentor in Davante Adams to teach him how to perform consistently. After hauling in eight receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Titans, Hollins is the ideal streamer if you are looking for help at the wide receiver position. Despite a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos, if I owned Hollins, I’d start him in Week 4.

Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers

Is Romeo Doubs the next Jordy Nelson or Davante Adams? Well, I wouldn’t go that far but he sure seems like Aaron Rodgers’ most trusted weapon in the passing game this year. As many of you may recall, Dobbs was the training camp darling for the Packers this season. He was regularly beating veterans in practice, making spectacular play after spectacular play. With all the injuries to the Packers receivers, he finally had a chance to start against Tampa Bay and he made the most of his opportunity. Sammy Watkins was placed on Injured Reserve and fellow rookie receiver, Christian Watson, was unable to suit up in Week 3. In stepped Doubs who caught all eight balls thrown his way for 73 yards and a touchdown. Although Allen Lazard may still be the top target in Green Bay, Doubs is going to see plenty of action in 2022. Doubs has a matchup against a Patriots defense that appears much better in fantasy than it does in real life. Look for Doubs to torch that New England secondary on Sunday.

Greg Dortch, Arizona Cardinals

Dortch came out of nowhere and appears to be one of Kyler Murray’s most trustworthy receivers. Dortch provides Murray with a safety valve due to his agility and quickness in short open space. Dortch has accumulated 198 receiving yards and one touchdown through three games this season. Considering DeAndre Hopkins will be returning in Week 7 and Rondale Moore remains sidelined, now is the perfect opportunity for Dortch to prove that he deserves to play a significant role in the game plan. And despite playing some very mediocre quarterbacks to begin the season, the Carolina Panthers are still allowing the eighth-most yards to opposing wide receivers per week. Dortch should continue to get peppered with targets and I’m anticipating a touchdown from the young wideout.

Tight Ends

Tyler Conklin, New York Jets

Haters are going to hate but Conklin continues to produce as a top-10 tight end in fantasy football. The 27-year-old big man hauled in all eight balls thrown in his direction for 84 receiving yards. Through the first three weeks of the season, Conklin ranks third in targets (24), second in receptions (18), and seventh in yards (140) at the position. 

Conklin scored a touchdown in his very first game as a member of the New York Jets back in Week 1. He certainly has a shot to add to that total this Sunday against a Steelers defense that allowed David Njoku to run wild on them this past Thursday. Njoku went off for 89 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions. Look for Conklin to get plenty of balls thrown his way once again even though he’s competing with Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore.

Robert Tonyan, Green Bay Packers

Tonyan has been targeted 14 times through three games this season, good for second on the team. Half of those targets came in Green Bay’s monumental 14-12 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although Tonyan only managed six catches for 37 scoreless yards, the outing proved that Rodgers is going to find a way to keep his tight end involved in the passing game. 

In Week 4, Green Bay gets an incredibly juicy matchup against a New England Patriots secondary that allows the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. Tonyan may not be peppered with targets but he’ll be one of Rodgers’ go-to guys in the end zone. 


Green Bay Packers

The Packers are coming off two consecutive dominant performances on defense. This week, they get to face a New England Patriots offense without the services of their starting quarterback, Mac Jones. That means that Brian Hoyer will step in under center for New England. This is a no-brainer.
