While there's no question as to the importance of the quarterback position in real football, that's not always the case in fantasy football. If you're playing in a standard one-QB league, the position isn't typically accounting for a huge share of your fantasy points in any given week. The evolution of passing offense in the NFL has also given us a huge number of options that are viable in fantasy football.
This depth, which includes players like Case Keenum, Josh Allen and Andy Dalton sitting in the top-12 for fantasy scoring, means that you can find viable starting options on the waiver wire every week.
These three quarterbacks are owned in less than one-third of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues and are solid starting options thanks to their favorable matchups in Week 4.
3. Daniel Jones, New York Giants (19% Owned)
NFL debuts don't get much better than Daniel Jones', which saw him explode for 34.2 fantasy points against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That single game already has him ranked 26th in scoring at QB on the season. It's still too early to crown him an every-week starter in fantasy football, but for the time being he remains a great option with a favorable Week 4 matchup against the Washington Redskins, who have allowed the fifth most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs.
2. Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals (32% Owned)
Andy Dalton was going undrafted in most leagues this summer, with an average draft position (ADP) of QB28, according to FantasyPros.com. People have been slow to change their view on the Cincinnati Bengals' signal-caller, and he's still available in most leagues, despite producing as the QB12 with 55.4 fantasy points through three games. He's been consistent, with at least 16 fantasy points in each game, despite having taken on a couple of solid pass defenses, and the Pittsburgh Steelers aren't likely to slow him down. The Steelers have allowed the NFL's sixth-most adjusted yards per pass attempt to opposing QBs and are giving up the second-most passing yards per game.
1. Jacoby Brissett, Indianapolis Colts (20% Owned)
We have Jacoby Brissett as a top-10 QB in our Week 4 fantasy football rankings after he notched 20.8 fantasy points as one of our top streaming options last week. His matchup gets even better here, taking on the Oakland Raiders, who have allowed top-10 fantasy production to the position while getting burned for the NFL's third-most adjusted yards per pass attempt. Brissett has already produced QB15 numbers, and he's fewer than three points out of the top 10 in a tight group. He still hasn't even shown his rushing upside either, which we saw when he ran for 260 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. Brissett is both a high-floor and high-upside streaming option this week, and even if you don't usually stream the position, you should consider starting him if your QB has a bad matchup.
