Week 3 of the NFL season brought us plenty of surprises. There were no shortage of teams rolling out new starting quarterbacks, and the results were really a mixed bag. With QBs playing such a crucial role in their respective offenses, these changes had a serious impact on the fantasy football landscape.
With that in mind, here are the 30 top players in fantasy football for Week 4. For a more comprehensive list, be sure to check out our Week 4 PPR rankings and our Week 4 fantasy football rankings for standard scoring leagues.
30. Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs (at DET)
29. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys (at NO)
28. Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks (at ARI)
Tyler Lockett's two-target game in Week 1 feels like a distant memory at this point. He racked up 12 targets in Week 2 and 14 in Week 3, catching double-digit passes both weeks. The Arizona Cardinals have been one of the best matchups in fantasy football to start the season, and Lockett should have little trouble converting volume into production this week.
27. Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams (vs TB)
26. Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams (vs TB)
25. Phillip Lindsay, RB, Denver Broncos (vs JAX)
24. Amari Cooper, WR, Dallas Cowboys (at NO)
23. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Cleveland Browns (at BAL)
22. Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens (vs CLE)
21. Leonard Fournette, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars (at DEN)
Leonard Fournette's 2019 season has been a disappointment so far, but he continues to handle workhorse volume in Jacksonville. His 63 opportunities (43 carries and 20 targets) are tied for sixth in the NFL, and his 94.4 percent snap rate ranks third among RBs, with a huge lead over the 79.5 percent share in fourth place. Fournette hasn't touched the ball fewer than 17 times in any game this year, and that keeps him positioned well to bounce back from this slow start.
20. Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions (vs KC)
19. Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints (vs DAL)
18. Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (at LAR)
17. Sammy Watkins, WR, Kansas City Chiefs (at DET)
Sammy Watkins may have let fantasy owners down after a massive Week 1, but he's still showing signs of that huge upside. He has 21 targets in the last two games alone, and his 32 on the season are the third most among wide receivers. Getting those looks in the league's best offense, it's just a matter of time before Watkins blows up for another big game.
16. Mark Ingram, RB, Baltimore Ravens (vs CLE)
15. Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers (vs PHI)
14. Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts (vs OAK)
13. James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers (vs CIN)
12. David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals (vs SEA)
11. Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons (vs TEN)
10. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (at DET)
Since the 2000 season, there have been only seven instances of a QB throwing for at least 10 touchdowns through the first three weeks of the season. One of those is Patrick Mahomes this season, and three of the other six (including Mahomes in 2018) went on to lead the league in QB fantasy points for the season. Nobody in the NFL is within even 200 passing yards of Mahomes in 2019, and he exists in a fantasy tier of his own at the QB position.
9. Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns (at BAL)
8. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans (vs CAR)
7. Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers (at MIA)
6. Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings (at CHI)
5. Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints (vs DAL)
4. Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks (at ARI)
3. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Carolina Panthers (at HOU)
2. Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers (at MIA)
The Miami Dolphins continue to be by far the best matchup a team can ask for in 2019, and four of the 50 highest single-game RB fantasy scores this year have come against Miami. Austin Ekeler has two of the top 22 single-game scores, and he ranks fourth at the position with 58.8 fantasy points on the year in standard scoring.
1. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys (at NO)
