Fantasy Football: Week 4 Player Rankings

Despite a less than stellar start to 2012, Aaron Rodgers enters Week 4 as the top ranked fantasy QB as he looks to light up a clumsy Saints’ defense.  Robert Griffin III continues impressive rookie play and remains in the Top 5 and MVP frontrunner Matt Ryan of the 3-0 Atlanta Falcons enters the Top 3 for the first time this season.

Following a mammoth leap from C.J. Spiller after a dominating two-week run, his status remains uncertain for at least 2-3 weeks and potentially beyond but the return of injured starter Fred Jackson could keep the Bills’ running game clicking.
