MIAMI, September 29 (WNN) — Josh Allen and Russell Wilson top my Week 4 Fantasy Football quarterback rankings for 2021.
Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady and Justin Herbert round out my top 5 choices for Week 4. Aaron Rodgers, Kyler Murray, Dak Prescott, Matthew Stafford and Lamar Jackson also make it to my top 10.
Kirk Cousins, Sam Darnold and Taylor Heinicke are among the quarterbacks I would consider starting this week if you’re weak in the position.
Here are some of my favorite players in this week’s Top 20 Quarterback Rankings:
Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen was the top fantasy football quarterback in Week 3 and seventh in fantasy points this season. Allen blew the Washington football team for 358 yards and four scores through the air and ran for another touchdown last Sunday.
Watch Allen stay warm in Week 4, when the Bills fight the Houston Texans. The Texans allowed the 13th most fantasy point to go to the quarterback for three weeks. Allen is a close lock for at least three totals in this matchup on Sunday at Orchard Park, NY
He is my top quarterback choice.
Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks is my No. 2 option. The Seahawks will face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Santa Clara, Calif.
Wilson threw six touchdown passes during the first two weeks of the season, but found the end zone only once in Week 3. Look for the Seahawks star to bounce back against the 49ers, who allowed the sixth-most fantasy point through quarterbacks first. Three weeks.
I expect Wilson to throw at least 250 yards and three scores in this NFC West Division matchup.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is my No. 11 choice for Week 4. Cousins averaged 306 passing yards and 2.6 passing touchdowns per game in his last three starts.
He should also find success against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Minneapolis. The Browns swung rookie quarterback Justin Fields in a win over the Chicago Bears last week, but the Vikings’ offense should be much more prolific.
Cousins can be used as a QB1 streamer in leagues with at least 14 teams if you are desperate to produce in position.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold is another player who is on a hot streak. Darnold threw for 304 yards and scored two quick touchdowns and finished as the No. 5 quarterback in fantasy football for Week 3.
He threw 305 yards and two scores in Week 2. This week, the Panthers will face the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are allowed the second most passing yards and the 12th most fantasy points for opposing quarterbacks.
Look for Darnold, my number 13 option, to throw at least 250 yards and two scores.
Taylor Heinicke of the Washington football team is another QB1 streamer for Week 4 who should only be used if you’re desperate. Heinke, my No. 15 choice, finished just outside the top 10 at quarterback for fantasy points in Week 3.
He should put up another impressive performance in week 4. Washington fights the Atlanta Falcons, which allowed the third-most fantasy points for a quarterback in the first three weeks of the season.
I expect this game to be a shootout, which should increase Henki’s ability to attempt more passes and find the end zone.
