Below you’ll find my tiers for Week 4 fantasy football. These are based on standard scoring and cover every position.
As a reminder, these tiers are not updated after publication. If you want my most up-to-date rankings for PPR, Standard and Half-Point PPR leagues, check out this post.
Patrick Mahomes (@ DEN)
Mahomes “regressed” to a 314-yard, three-touchdown game in Week 3. He is still on a historic pace and should be treated as the No. 1 quarterback moving forward.
Aaron Rodgers (vs. BUF)
Drew Brees (@ NYG)
Deshaun Watson (@ IND)
Matt Ryan (vs. CIN)
Ben Roethlisberger (vs. BAL)
Tom Brady (vs. MIA)
Don’t let the Texans’ 0-3 start fool you. Watson appears to be regaining his 2017 form. It’s worth pointing out that Will Fuller’s availability should be considered when we project Watson going forward.
