Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you Week 4.

Christian Ponder, QB, Minnesota Vikings

Ponder has thrown for four touchdowns and ran for another in the past two games. He has yet to turn the ball over this year and his outside threat, Jerome Simpson, is coming off suspension.

With Harvin and Rudolph working the middle and Peterson in the running game, the Vikings have some weapons. Ponder is facing the Lions, who have allowed 250.7 passing yards per game. 


Ben Tate, RB, Houston Texans

Tate’s production is a matter of how many touches he gets. Against a Tennessee team that has been outscored 67-113 there is a chance that the game gets out of hand and Tate will get extra touches.

The Titans have yielded 150.3 yards per game on the ground. 


Mike Williams, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

He has two touchdowns on the year and is going up against a Redskins team that has already allowed 10 touchdown passes. 


Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars

He has been quiet since the opener, but is a red-zone threat at 6'6". The Bengals struggled with Dennis Pitta and Fred Davis in Weeks 1 and 3, respectively. 


St. Louis Rams Defense

The Rams aren’t nearly the pushover they once were. They rank 19th in total defense (358.7 ypg), 16th against the pass (238.0 ypg), 21st against the run (120.7 ypg), and 22nd in scoring defense (26.0 ppg). Seattle ranks 29th in total offense (269.0 ypg) and tied for 26th in scoring offense (19.0 ypg)
