Wide Receiver Rankings for Fantasy Football week 4-Who to Start


Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, and Reggie Wayne are all on the sidelines this week as Pittsburgh and Indianapolis are on a bye week 4. There’s also a number of top wide receivers dealing with injury, but this is how to set your lineup heading into this weekend.

Here’s our rankings for this week of the top 40 wide receivers for the week. A special thanks to Steve Copps (SC), Matthew Tuckness (MT), and Jeffrey Littrell (JL) for joining me (ZT) in these rankings. The higher the rank the better the start. NR stands for not ranked which counts as a 45 for averaging purposes.
