As the 2017 NFL season closes in on the first quarter of the season, many teams find themselves in win-now mode after just three games. The same can be said for many fantasy football owners. There have been plenty of ups and downs so far this season for fantasy owners. With injuries to the likes of David Johnson, Andrew Luck and Greg Olsen, and the inconsistent play of Cam Newton, this season has proved once again that fantasy football is impossible to predict. That won't stop anyone from trying.
Three weeks into 2017's NFL season, fantasy football managers can start deciphering trends from September's early returns. Kareem Hunt's opening-night breakout was not enough to cement the rookie as a star. Scoring six touchdowns with a run greater than 50 yards in each of the first three bouts, on the other hand, fortifies his status as a top-tier talent. Although the sample size remains small enough to deceive in some instances, there's enough data to make informed Week 4 lineup decisions.
Remarkably, seven Week 4 matchups will feature games wherein both teams have winning records. This is after a week in which only one such contest took place—the Atlanta Falcons' 30-26 win over the Detroit Lions. Week 3 was one of the most exciting gameweeks of football in some time. Can Week 4 live up to the billing? On paper, at least, it just might. Here's a look at some Week 4 fantasy football projections, as well as odds and predictions for each game.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
