Week 4 Fantasy Football Rankings: Running Backs

It's the week of the backup as Khalil Herbert aims to continue his fantasy hot streak in Week 4 versus the Giants.

We are due another exciting slate upcoming in Week 4. It's been an exciting and challenging season with lots of surprises. Who'd have thought the Dolphins and Eagles would be the only undefeated teams left after three games? While the Texans (0-2-1) and Raiders (0-3) are winless, it's still plenty early enough for any team's chances to turn with still another 14 games to play.

There are a few games with high scoring potential that I'm watching this week. Starting off with Week 4's highest over/under point total on SI Sportsbook, two of the best teams in the AFC meet in the Bills versus the Ravens (O/U 51.5). The next two highest totals are Browns vs. Falcons (O/U 48.5) and Jets vs. Steelers (O/U 48).

The three games with the lowest point totals on SI Sportsbook are Bears vs. Giants (O/U 39.5), Patriots vs. Packers (O/U 40) and Commanders vs. Cowboys (O/U 41.5).

My rankings: QB | RB | WR | TE | FLEX | K | DST
