Fantasy Football: Week 4 Positional Rankings

September 27, 2007

ETB’s bonafide fantasy pros are here to help alleviate your starting roster stress. Every week during the fantasy football season we’ll rank the top 20 quarterbacks, 25 running backs, 25 wide receivers, 15 tight ends and 15 team defenses based on past performance, news and developments, situations, and matchups. No two sets of experts will agree and you’re going to see a lot of conflicting ranks out there, but by now you know there’s only a select few you can truly rely on. We’d like to think we’re one of ‘em. In all their glory, ETB’s Week 4 Fantasy Rankings… apologies, kickers are dead to us.

I have Derrick Ward, Kevin Jones, and Brian Leonard. Which 2 do I start Week 4?

Posted by: John on September 28th, 2007 at 11:27 pm

John–I think Ward should definitely be in there… between KJ and Leonard, we have the Lions’ RB ranked just ahead of the rook, only because we haven’t really seen him in extensive regular-season action yet. He will, however, be getting more work than Jones.

It’s a tough one–I’d go w/ Jones, but you never know.
