Week four Fantasy WR PPR Rating: Should-Begins, Sleepers, Potential Busts

Let’s start with the good when it comes to receiver injuries: it sounds like superstar Michael Thomas (Knuckle) is making it back in week 4, putting him back in the top 5 on our Fantasy WR PPR rankings. Owned by Julio Jones (thigh), Davante Adams (thigh) and A.J. Brown (knee) may not be as lucky among a number of other wide receivers. It’s just like it is in an injury-ridden 2020. So you should search our leaderboards for potential sleepers and waivers to get you through the week.

Laviska Shenault, one of our favorite sleepers this season, has continued to prove himself worthy with his performance on Thursday Night Football. If he catches between three and five passes in each game and runs up to five times, that’s a solid workload. A week 4 matchup with the Bengals is sure to be attractive, and Shenault is the only Jaguar WR worth playing outside of DJ Chark (if he comes back).

WEEK 4 PPR RANKING:
Quarterback | Run back | Wide receiver | Narrow end | D / ST | Kicker

Other pickups to consider this week include four rookies: Justin Jefferson (@ Texans) of Minnesota, who might live up to his pre-season hype, Cincinnatis Tee Higgins (versus Jaguars), who showed a nose for the end zone , Brandon Aiyuk from San Francisco (versus Eagles) who does a little bit like Aiyuk, and Gabriel Davis (@ Raiders) from Buffalo who is a deep league special. If you’re looking for PPR injuries, look for Greg Ward (@ 49ers), Hunter Renfrow (v Bills), Adam Humphries (v Steelers), Cole Beasley (@ Raiders), James Washington (@ Titans), and Braxston Berrios (v Broncos) and Allen Lazard (versus Falcons) could really pay off if DeSean Jackson (thigh), Henry Ruggs III (knee), AJ Brown (knee), John Brown (calf), Diontae Johnson (head), Jamison Crowder (thigh ) and Davante Adams (thighs) stay outside.

WEEK 4 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Run back | Narrow end | D / ST | Kicker

Keep an eye on how Julio Jones’ hamstring injury could affect Russell Gage this week – while watching Gage’s head injury. We kept Jones on the leaderboard for now until his training reports for the first week are in to see how he’s doing after missing week 3.
