2017 Fantasy Football Week 4 Rankings


Week 3 went exactly how we thought, right? The Redskins, Bears, Jets and Saints had four dominant defensive performances. On the flip side of that, we saw the Ravens, Bucs and Seahawks defenses not fair so well. Safe to say the Week 3 rankings did not reflect those.

How about that Thursday night game last week too? Snooze…. wait what? 80 total points! Nobody saw that coming at all. That may have been the most interesting Thursday night game ever.

Such is life as a Fantasy Football analyst early in the season, things do not go as expected when we did all our analysis in the preseason. All we can do is adjust and adjust quickly. We here at Fantasy Six Pack do that. One way is in the form of our weekly rankings and rest of season rankings.

In the 2017 Fantasy Football Week 4 Rankings, you will see players that are performing above before season expectations starting to climb the weekly rankings. An example is Trevor Siemian, who yes had a poor Week 3, has still performed well overall and now sits in the middle of the quarterback rankings. Preseason you would have seen him buried near the bottom.

2017 Fantasy Football Week 4 Rankings

Each week I will be giving some notes for things you will want to keep an eye on as the week progresses. It will be mostly injury related, but anything that could affect the rankings, that we know about, will be mentioned. Then you can come back and review the rankings as lineup lock get closer.

  • Willie Snead is off his suspension, however, Sean Peyton is non-committal of his playing status this week.
  • John Brown is still dealing with his quad injury. He did practice before the Monday night game in Week 3, so perhaps he gets cleared.
  • Julio Jones has a back injury. It likely won’t keep him out of the game but might limit him.
  • Tyler Eifert is still dealing with his back injury. He is week to week at this point.
  • Randall Cobb has gotten two full practices in already as the Packers play Thursday night, this is a great sign for his playing status.
  • Will Fuller who was thought to be out 2-3 months in the preseason, is now looking like he might play this week.
  • Melvin Gordon aggravated his knee injury last week in the first half and did not see a snap in the second half. Chargers are calling it a bone bruise and he is likely to play.
  • Sammy Watkins is in the concussion protocol. The fact that he played on Thursday in Week 3 helps his chances to get back on the field, but we know these things can linger too.
  • Sam Bradford is still nursing the knee injury. Perhaps Case Keenum is not as big of a downgrade for Diggs and Thielen as we all thought, but we still want to monitor him.
  • Michael Crabtree left Sunday nights game with a chest injury, his status for Week 4 is uncertain.
  • Doug Baldwin has a groin injury. We will have to watch the injury report all season to see if he gets any practices in.
  • Rob Kelley is questionable with the rib injury that held him out in Week 3. They play Monday so we will likely not get clarity on this in time for you to make roster decisions.
  • Jordan Reed was close to playing Sunday night, but did not. We expect him to play for now, but still watching.
