Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Russell Wilson tops my Week 4 fantasy football quarterback rankings for 2020.

Aaron Rodgers, Dak Prescott, Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray round out my Top 5 options for Week 4. Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, Cam Newton, Josh Allen and Tom Brady also land in my Top 10.


I also would consider starting Ryan Fitzpatrick, Joe Burrow, Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins this week if you are desperate at the position. Ben Roethlisberger and Ryan Tannehill should be removed from lineups because their Week 4 matchup has been postponed.

Check out my weekly waiver wire article for options of players to add at each position.

Here are some of my favorite players in this week's top 20 quarterback rankings:



Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is the early frontrunner to win NFL MVP. He also tops my Week 4 quarterback rankings as he heads into a matchup against the Miami Dolphins, a defense that has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks,

Wilson should never come out of your lineup, unless he has a bye week, but this should be one of his best weeks of the season. I expect Wilson to throw at least three touchdowns against the Dolphins.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had a resurgence this season. He has nine touchdowns and has yet to throw an interception. Rodgers is my No. 2 quarterback for Week 4 as the Packers face an Atlanta Falcons defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2020.

Keep Rodgers in your lineup until further notice.

Ryan Fitzpatrick likely went undrafted in your league, but has turned in some impressive fantasy football performances through three weeks. I expect another stellar showing from the Miami Dolphins quarterback in Week 4 when he faces a Seattle Seahawks defense that has allowed the most passing yards and second-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.


Fitzpatrick is my No. 11 option this week.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie Joe Burrow is another player who might be worth a streaming start if you need a quarterback.

Burrow has thrown multiple touchdown passes in consecutive games entering his Week 4 matchup against a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that was just torched by Fitzpatrick.

I have Burrow at No. 14 in my Week 4 rankings, just inside QB1 territory in deeper leagues. He should throw for at least 300 yards and two scores this week.


Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is my No. 16 option in Week 4. Stafford has thrown four touchdown passes over the last two weeks and should continue that hot streak in Week 4 when the Lions battle a New Orleans Saints defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Stafford is worth a start in deeper leagues due to the great matchup.

Kirk Cousins had a dreadful start to his 2020 campaign, but rebounded with a three-touchdown, 251-yard performance in Week 3. Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson exploded in Week 3 and aided Cousins' productive day. I expect that rapport to get stronger going forward.


Jefferson, Adam Thielen and the Vikings other skill position players should elevate Cousins as a matchup-based fantasy football start for the rest of the season.

Cousins is my No. 17 option for Week 4.
