Weekly Salary Cap Fantasy Football leagues have been rapidly gaining in popularity over the last few years and it’s easy to spot their allure. Weekly leagues offer a fresh start each week, which is often appealing to fantasy owners who have become disenchanted with their traditional league team. Like their traditional counterparts, successful salary cap teams are built by finding the best value at each position. Each week we’ll be choosing which player represents the best value at each skill position.

Matt Schaub
Matt Schaub is coming off of his best fantasy football performance in nearly two seasons, throwing for 290 yards and 4 touchdowns, and it’s likely that his exceptional play will continue for another week. Schaub and the Texans will host the Tennessee Titans and their 30th ranked passing defense. Tennessee has allowed quarterbacks to score more fantasy points than any other team in the NFL thus far, and it’s hard to imagine that changing this week, even if Schaub loses another piece of his ear. Schaub can be had for as low as the 14th most expensive quarterback on some sites.

Michael Turner
Michael Turner has been the victim of a lack of carries, as he has yet to reach the 20 carry mark in a single game. He made the most of his light workload in Week 3, however, running for 80 yards and a score on 14 carries. Carolina is in town for Atlanta’s Week 4 match up, and after getting gashed by Andre Brown last week, it’s not hard to foresee a similar day for Turner, as Carolina is sporting the leagues 8th worst run defense. For context, Turner is worth as low as the 25th most expensive Running Back on some sites.

Jordy Nelson
Jordy Nelson finished the 2011 season as the second best fantasy wide receiver behind Calvin Johnson on a points per week basis, and while that success hasn't followed him in 2012, this week represents a perfect opportunity for Nelson to right the ship. Green Bay squares off against New Orleans and their 31st ranked pass defense on a yards per attempt basis. Nelson’s slow start has significantly dropped his price tag in weekly leagues, as he is as low as the 25th most expensive wide receiver on some sites.
