Week 4 Fantasy Football Rankings 2020

Welcome to week 4 of the fantasy football season! This past week was much safer in terms of injuries to our fantasy football players, there were no big name serious injuries that will have you scrambling for the waiver wire. With that said, we are still dealing with injuries to some big names like Saquon Barkely, Christian McCaffrey, and Michael Thomas. You will potentially need to consider replacements for all of these normally high scoring studs. This is exactly the reason you need the fantasy rankings below. You can utilize all of the positional rankings below as a start sit tool and find replacements for any of your injured star players. These week 4 fantasy football rankings were made using a .5 PPR scoring setting and will be sure to help you make the right decision. Have fun and good luck!

Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson continues to impress in 2020. We all know he has all of the talent in the world to be a top QB for fantasy, but in the past either the game script or focus on running the ball had limited his upside. Now Wilson and the Seahawks are letting it fly and all fantasy managers are benefiting. Wilson threw for 315 yards and 5 TDs while adding 22 yards on the ground agains the Cowboys in week 3. Week 4 gets even more juicy when Wilson faces the Dolphins who have allowed the 4th MOST point to the QB position this year. I would normally be worried about this game getting out of control and Wilson potentially even taking a seat on the bench, but the Seahawks defense has been bad enough where the Dolphins could at least keep it interesting. Wilson will continue to be a top 5 option at the QB positon for fantasy football in week 4. Fantasy Projection: 314 passing yards 3 TDs 23 rushing yards

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers had another solid fantasy football perormance in week 3 agaisnt the Saints when he threw for 283 yards and 3 TDs to lead the Packers to their third straight victory. Fantasy managers and Packers fans are re-joicing in the streets now that it looks like Rodgers is back in good form. It honestly only gets better in week 4 when the Packers face the Falcons who are the worst defense agaisnt opposing fantasy football QBs. This Falcons team just gives up points and is always in a shoot out which means great things for Rodgers. This will be another superb week for Rodgers and he should be started in nearly all formats. Fantasy Projection: 308 yards 2 TDs passing

Alvin Kamara

Alvin Kamara is currently the best RB in fantasy football and I don’t think it’s close (considering CMC is out). Kamara rushed in week 3 for 58 yards and did most of his damage through the air with 13 receptions for 139 yards and 2 TDs. 13 receptions is an absolute joke for an RB I mean you would be blown away if any receiver even got that many receptions let alone an RB. Without Thomas, Kamara has quickly become Brees’ go to read and he is making the most of every touch. It seems crazy to say, but he may even be better in week 4 when he play against the Detroit Lions defense. The Lions are allowing the 7th most points to opposing RBs and looks terrible trying to stop any rusher. Kamara should feast again tin week 54. Fantasy Projection: 74 yards 0.6 TDs rushing 6 receptions 51 yards 0.15 TDs receiving

Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook finally had the full workload I think we all have been expecting. Cook rushed 22 times for 181 yards and 1 TD while adding 2 receptions for 18 yards. Cook has typically been used in the full workhorse back role in his NFL career, but had not seen over 20 touches until this game. Cook looked explosive and agile in his first big touch game of the season. He will try to continue his hot streak against the Houston Texans in week 4 who are currently allowing the 4th most points to opposing running backs this season. This all adds up to another huge performance from Cook in week 4. Fantasy Projection: 87 yards 0.8 TDs rushing 3 receptions 31 yards receiving

Tyler Lockett

This week was the week of receivers who we had high expectations for pre-season finally coming through in a BIG way. The top receiver on this list in Tyler Lockett. Lockett had a monster week in week 3 agaisnt the Dallas Cowboys when he had 9 receptions for 100 yards and 3 TDs. Lockett is a favorite of QB Russell Wilson and will continue to benefit from the pass heavy offense of the Seahawks. Lockett will face the Dolphins in week 4 who are allowing the 12th most fantasy points to opposing receivers and without the outlier of the Jaguars game that statistic could be MUCH worse. I anticipate a huge game again from Lockett in week 4. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 77 yards 0.6 TDs

Cooper Kupp

Ok ok I see you Cooper Kupp… what a week 3 performance Kupp was able to finally put together against the Bills. Kupp racked up 9 receptions for 107 yards and 1 TD to the delight of all fantasy managers who stuck with him. I don’t think that Kupp continues at exactly this pace, but I think Kupp will continue to be a strong WR2 option moving forward and will provide a handful of matchup winning WR1 weeks. Kupp has a matchup against the Giants in week 4 who are currently allowing the 13th most fantasy points to opposing WRs. I think you have to stick with the hot hand for at least another week with Cooper Kupp. Fantasy Projection: 5 receptions 75 yards 0.5 TDs

Jonnu Smith

Jonnu Smith continues to impress this season especially while A.J. Brown is out due to injury. Smith had 5 receptions for 61 yards in week 3 and already has 3 TDs this season. Smith is extremely athletic for a TE and is not only a threat in the redzone, but also a deep threat which is extremely rare for his position. Smith will take on the Steelers in week 4 who are a fairly tough matchup for opposing TEs, but I still believe Smith’s talent will keep him in many fantasy managers lineups. Fantasy Projection: 4 receptions 56 yards 0.5 TDs
