After missing last week because he couldn't clear the concussion protocol, Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is expected to be in action against the Bills on Sunday. Waddle wasn't a part of Week 3's rout of the Broncos in which the Dolphins scored 70 points and had 726 yards of total offense, so should you thrust him back into your Week 4 Fantasy football lineups? Meanwhile, Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson will also return from a concussion this week and the rookie quarterback will match up with the Rams. Before his injury, Richardson was providing exceptional value as a runner, but where does he belong in the Week 4 Fantasy football rankings with Aaron Donald and the Rams on tap? Before you lock in your Week 4 Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the Week 4 Fantasy football rankings from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.
When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine's model beat human experts in Fantasy football for the past several seasons especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.
Now, the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its Fantasy football rankings for Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season. Head to SportsLine now to see these weekly Fantasy football rankings.
Top Week 4 Fantasy football picks
One player the model is high on this week: Saints tight end Taysom Hill. The 33-year-old is now in his seventh NFL season and he remains one of the NFL's most unique offensive threats. He's technically listed as a tight end, but most of his value is derived from his usage as a wildcat quarterback and his running ability.
Hill ran for 575 yards and seven touchdowns while catching nine passes for 77 yards and two scores last season. In 2023, he's only been targeted four times and has two catches for eight yards, but he's rushed for 91 yards and he could be an even more integral part of the offensive gameplan this week with Derek Carr (shoulder) questionable and Jameis Winston potentially taking over as the starting quarterback.
And a massive shocker: Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans, who is coming off nine consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and was started in 91% of CBS Sports Fantasy football leagues last week, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 35 at his position.
Evans has managed at least five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown in all three games so far this season and is well on his way to a 10th consecutive 1,000-yard season, but he'll have a tough matchup against New Orleans in Week 4. In his last eight games against the Saints, Evans has 19 catches for 317 yards and two touchdowns. As a primary defender, Marshon Lattimore has only allowed six catches for 68 yards on 16 targets this season and he'll likely shadow Evans on Sunday in the Big Easy.
