QB Rankings Week 4: We’re back with another round of quarterback rankings this week! In Week 3, there were a few notable performances, as well as reminders. that rookie quarterbacks still need to get some experience. There’s a lot to think about in the coming weeks, so let’s get to the Week 4 quarterback rankings and observations.
Quarterback Notes for Week 4
This week’s QB1 was Josh Allen, who threw for 358 yards and four passing touchdowns. To make up for his nine rushing yards on the day, he added a rushing score. With a delicious matchup against the Texans this week, expect him to keep rolling.
Despite throwing only one touchdown in Week 3, Tom Brady concluded the week. as the QB4 after airing it out for 432 yards and a rushing touchdown. Brady is a top-5 quarterback on a weekly basis. He’s coming off a loss to the Rams and will play in Week 4 against the Patriots. Brady was enraged!
Against the Chiefs, Justin Herbert was outstanding. He threw for 281 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Chargers to victory. In Week 4, he’ll try to hand the Raiders their first loss.
Kirk Cousins deserves a shout-out. He threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns in another great week. With eight passing touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s the fourth-best quarterback in the league this season. This week, I like him versus the Browns.

In Week 3: Sam Darnold is also deserving of praise
he threw for 304 yards and two rushing touchdowns, and he’s been a QB1 all season. The Panthers have taken advantage of an easy schedule. and they face the Cowboys in Week 4 for another favorable matchup.
Ryan Tannehill needs to shake off the rust he picked up during a sluggish start to the season. A matchup versus the Jets in Week 4 could do the trick.
In Week 3, I went all-in on Daniel Jones, which didn’t go as planned. Jones squandered a favorable matchup against the Falcons. finishing the day without a touchdown. In two-quarterback leagues, I still believe he offers sneaky mobility. and is a quarterback you can stream in favorable scenarios. In Week 4, though, meeting the Saints is not a great position.
Rookie quarterbacks have had a difficult start to the season. Through three weeks, Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson tied. for the league lead with seven interceptions. Justin Fields is coming off a six-for-twenty performance. in which he sacked nine times for 68 yards and no touchdowns. Mac Jones has had the best season as the QB28. a gentle reminder that while all these young quarterbacks have a lot of talent and upside. they aren’t all going to be great right away.
QB Rankings Week 4: who should start and who should sit at quarterback?
We’re approaching Week 4, and we’re still getting new status to help us figure out who’s good. who’s awful, and who’s in the middle. While there isn’t yet a complete picture, we must make the best of what we have. We didn’t need any more reasons, but Josh Allen’s big Week 3 performance. and a favorable matchup against Houston has him atop our Week 4 fantasy QB rankings. Inside the top 10, you’ll find the traditional dual-threat studs. but the rest of the list is a little different than you’d think. Use these rankings to help you determine who to start and who to bench at quarterback this week.
Sam Darnold (Dallas) has to look like he did in New York at some point, right? but we’re not afraid to put him in the QB12 spot this week. We were hesitant to give him such a high ranking, but what if he was a product of Adam Gase’s Jets? What if he turns out to be Ryan Tannehill’s successor? Based on what we’ve seen this year, he needs to earn fantasy respect. After all, he’s averaging almost 20 fantasy points per game so far, and we all know how bad Dallas’ defense is. Without Christian McCaffrey (hamstring), the offense may appear pedestrian. but that’s a risk worth taking this week.
QB Rankings Week 4 PPR :
Yes, we dedicated an entire paragraph to Darnold, but he’s been one of the year’s biggest shocks. Beyond him, the top 16 quarterbacks include Derek Carr (Chargers). Kirk Cousins (Browns), Ryan Tannehill (Jets), and Joe Burrow (Jaguars). While Tannehill struggled in Weeks 1 and 2. Tennessee has far too much talent for him to remain mediocre. (provided his top two receivers stay healthy. Which we’ll have to keep an eye on this week). With three passing touchdowns against Indianapolis in Week 3. We got a peek at what we may expect from Tannehill. Even though they both have neutral matchups. Carr and Cousins have been too outstanding to dismiss.
Week 4 Standard Rankings:
On Thursday, Burrow faces Trevor Lawrence. and the Jaguars in what could be a high-scoring matchup. Because this is a duel of the last two No. 1 picks, it might become a flexing match between the two teams. Lawrence (against. Bengals) also has a chance to have a good fantasy game, but it’s hard to trust anyone in the Jaguar’s offense. Taylor Heinicke (Atlanta) is a dangerous player. We’ve seen mixed outcomes from him, but we’re excited about the Atlanta battle. On paper, Baker Mayfield (Vikings) appears to be a nice play. but we’ve seen the Browns favor running the ball time and time again.
Week 4 DFS Lineups:
Rookies Zach Wilson (against. Tennessee) and Justin Fields (vs. Detroit) have favorable matchups on paper. but their profiles this week are boom-or-bust. They’re both more likely to bust after poor performances in Week 3. but they may still be used in two-QB/Superflex leagues.
QB Rankings Week 4 DFS:
This week, Tom Brady (at Patriots) and Aaron Rodgers (at Steelers) are two guys to watch. Brady might go nuclear, or he could lose his grudge battle with Bill Belichick. You must begin with him, but keep in mind the possibility of point regression. After all, this is supposed to be a low-scoring game, and he struggled against the Rams. In Week 2, Rodgers looked better, but it was against the Lions. He started strong in Week 3 (against the 49ers) and finished with excellent stats. The Steelers are a formidable opponent, but they aren’t particularly terrifying. In most instances, you’ll still start these men. but you should moderate your expectations a touch.
QB Rankings Week 4 Fantasy:
We’ll have a month’s worth of data to analyze after this week. That appears to be a good starting point. for generating reasonable findings and projections in the future. For the time being, we’re only speculating. although there are some clear themes appearing.
