We’ll be ranking the top five players in each of the four major positions that are likely available in your league — or, hopefully available, at least. Keep in mind, these numbers are mobile and can change throughout the week. We’ll update them as they change, or other news surfaces. The following ownership percentages come via Yahoo! Fantasy Sports after Week 2.
Deshaun Watson (14-percent owned)
He topped our list last Monday, and he tops it yet again heading in to Week 4. After a nice performance against the Bengals on Thursday Night Football in Week 2, Watson and the Texans nearly knocked off the defending Super Bowl champions with a dual-threat performance of 22 for 33 passing, amassing 301 yards through the air and two passing touchdowns. Sure, he threw a pair of picks as well, but he also picked up 41 yards on the ground on eight carries. He’s a decent stash option, with games against Tennessee, Cleveland, Indianapolis and the Rams coming within the next couple of weeks.
Jared Goff (12)
It was the Jared Goff Show on Thursday Night Football in Week 3, when he went 22 of 28 through the air for 292 yards, three touchdowns and no picks against the 49ers. Who knows, maybe the 2016 No. 1 overall pick is coming around.
DeShone Kizer (9)
I tell ya what: once this kid gets those interceptions under control, he’ll be valuable in fantasy. The Browns aren’t holding back and letting him play conservative, either. However, throwing three interceptions in a three-point loss to the Colts isn’t a good look.
Brian Hoyer (8)
A week after being held to 99 yards passing by Seattle, Hoyer threw for 332 yards against the Browns last Thursday. So, yeah. Hoyer’s fantasy relevance sits somewhere in the middle. I think.
Jacoby Brissett (2)
I mean, there’s not really much else of an option in Indy while Andrew Luck is out. He averaged a first down per attempt (10.8 yards) with 259 yards on 17 of 24 passing against the Browns.
