If you're still alive in your survivor pool, good for you. There sure were a lot of good men and women lost to the unpredictable nature of Week 3. Favorites like the New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers, and Jacksonville Jaguars all fell last week, wiping out a good chunk of the competition.
But for those still alive, it's time to continue to press your luck with these potential locks. Here are the three picks for your survivor pool in Week 4.
3. Los Angeles Chargers vs. San Francisco 49ers, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. EST

The San Francisco 49ers bad luck is your gain. Their Week 3 matchup was a total nightmare. Not only did they lose to the Chiefs, but they lost QB Jimmy Garoppolo for the season. Don't expect new starter C.J. Beathard and the Niners to be able to keep up with Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense in Week 4. Take the Bolts to win.
2. Cleveland Browns at Oakland Raiders, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. EST

This may be an outrageous call, but hear me out. If the Cleveland Browns had a competent kicker, they'd be 3-0. They're a surprisingly good football team and are going up against the winless Raiders, who haven't been able to stop anyone on defense. This bodes well for Baker Mayfield and the boys in Week 4. It's crazy to think about, but the Browns are a smart pick here.
1. Jacksonville Jaguars vs. New York Jets, Sunday, 1:00 p.m. EST

The Jaguars are simply not a team that's going to lose in back-to-back weeks. Yes, they went down last week, but anything can happen in a divisional matchup. The Jets are a completely different opponent with a rookie QB. Do you think Sam Darnold is going to overcome this defense? No way. Expect the Jaguars defense to run wild and for them to bring a win home.
