Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Tyreek Hill, Amari Cooper, DeAndre Hopkins, D.K. Metcalf and Calvin Ridley top my Week 4 fantasy football wide receiver rankings for 2020.

Adam Thielen, Mike Evans, Allen Robinson, Terry McLaurin and Cooper Kupp round out my Top 10 options for Week 4. Odell Beckham Jr, DeVante Parker and Will Fuller also are among my favorite starts this week.

You should target players who have a good chance to score a touchdown and get a lot of looks from their respective quarterbacks when considering who to start at wide receiver.

Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans players should be removed from lineups until further notice after their Week 4 game was postponed.

TOP SHELF

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has had five catches and a touchdown in each of his first three games this season, but has yet to surpass 100 yards in a game. I expect the latter streak to end in Week 4 when the Chiefs face the New England Patriots.

The Patriots have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2020. Now they'll have to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs speedy pass catchers. Hill is my No. 1 wide receiver for Week 4.

Amari Cooper has yet to score a touchdown this season, but has posted at least 80 yards in each of his first three games. He is also tied for the third-most targets in the NFL with 35 looks this season.

I expect Cooper to make his end zone debut in Week 4 when the Dallas Cowboys face a Cleveland Browns team that has already allowed five touchdowns to wide receivers in 2020.

Cooper is my No. 2 wide receiver for Week 4.

SNEAKY PLAYS

Odell Beckham Jr. should post WR1 numbers in Week 4 when the Cleveland Browns face the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have allowed a league-high seven touchdowns and the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Beckham is my No. 14 option for Week 4.

LONGSHOTS

Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker is my No. 18 wide receiver for Week 4. The WR2 should have a very productive day against a Seattle Seahawks defense that has allowed a league-high 1,136 yards and the most fantasy points to wide receivers.

The Dolphins should trail in this matchup and be forced to throw to Parker and teammate Preston Williams. Make sure Parker is in your lineup.

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller is my No. 27 option for Week 4. I expect Fuller to go off in this matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Fuller missed the Texans Week 2 loss, but returned with a 54-yard, one-score performance in a Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I expect another score from Fuller in Week 4.
