MIAMI, September 29 (WNN) — Derrick Henry, Alvin Kamara, Austin Eckler, Nick Chubb and Ezekiel Elliott top my Week 4 Fantasy Football running back rankings for 2021.
Joe Mixon, D’Andre Swift, Chris Carson, Aaron Jones and David Montgomery round out my top 10 picks for Week 4.
Jack Moss and Miles Sanders are among other running backs to consider in your weekly lineup.
There are many other running backs available this week with great matchups apart from the elite names. Try to find a player who scores goals in a lot of carries, passing games or goal line work and is a good Week 4 matchup.
Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans is the best running back in football and should never leave his fantasy team’s lineup. This week, Henry’s Titans will face the New York Jets.
The Jets allowed the sixth-most fantasy points this season to trail behind for three weeks. He allowed a touchdown to the Denver Broncos, running behind Melvin Gordon and Javon Williams, last week.
Watch Henry go to the end zone at least twice in what should be a Titans victory. Henry goes behind the fantasy points and all the running in the running yards. He is tied for the league lead with three quick scores.
The 2019 and 2020 Rushing Champions are geared up for a Monster Week 4 showdown.
The New Orleans Saints did not score a gruesome touchdown in their first three games of 2021, leaving Alvin Kamara behind but did receive two touchdowns.
He ranks 16th in running yards and should find success in Week 4, when the Saints battle the New York Giants.
The Giants allowed the 10th most fantasy issue over the course of three weeks. Look for Kamra to get back on track with at least 120 yards from scrimmage and Sunday’s score in New Orleans.
The Detroit Lions trail behind D’Andre Swift is seventh in fantasy points for his position. He produced 107 yards from scrimmage and scored on 21 touches in Week 3.
He is second in the running back this season with 23 goals.
Look for Swift to continue her 2021 success this week, when the Lions take on the Chicago Bears. The Bears averaged 105 rushing yards per game allowed for three weeks of running and must struggle to control the shifty Swifts in Chicago on Sunday.
I hope the Lions win this game, with Swift leading the way. He is my No 7 play and can be used as RB1 until further notice.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery faces Swift’s Lions in Week 4. The Lions allowed a league-high six touchdown to be played back for three weeks. Montgomery is fifth in Rushing and should get at least 20 touches in this matchup.
Look at least 120 yards away from the trailing bear, which comes in at No. 10 on my Week 4 ranking.
Zack Moss is listed as the second running back on the Buffalo Bills depth chart, but continues to outpace starter Devin Singletary in fantasy points.
Singletary still leads the team with 180 rushing yards, but Moss scored more fantasy points per game during the first three weeks.
Moss scored two touchdowns in Week 2. He went from scrimmage to 91 yards and a receiving score on 16 touches in Week 3. Look for bills to keep Moss involved in the game plan going forward.
This week, Bill Houston fights the Texans. The Texans allowed the eighth most fantasy points to be trailed by three weeks. Moss again this week should find the last area in which to explode the bills.
Moss is my number 18 substitute and can be used as RB2 or flex play in leagues with at least 14 teams.
Miles Sanders was not impressive during the first three games of 2021. The Philadelphia Eagles are 25th in rushing yards and have not scored a touchdown.
The Eagles limited Sanders’ workload in Week 3 and were on the wrong end of a blowout. Watch for Sanders’ touch raise against the Kansas City Chiefs this week.
The Chiefs scored the third-highest fantasy point, allowing the trail to run through the first three games. The Eagles need to go to Sanders if they want to keep the Chiefs’ prolific offense off the field in Philadelphia on Sunday.
Sanders is my number 20 running back for week 4.
