The players below are the most intriguing potential additions ahead of Week 4 of the 2020 NFL season.

Quarterback

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield – 43% rostered

Mayfield clearly hasn’t had the season he or anyone else envisioned, as he’s only the QB25 post-Week 3 with his 41.5 fantasy points, but he does have a tremendous matchup in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys, who have allowed the third-most points to opposing quarterbacks per game this season.

One of the main issues for Mayfield and the Browns is their propensity to run the ball, which obviously lowers Mayfield’s ceiling to some degree. The bright side is that the Cowboys have allowed the fifth-most passing yards, the eighth-most passing yards per attempt and the most passing touchdowns in 2020.

PFF’s fantasy projections anticipate a QB10 finish for Mayfield this week. A strong performance is not only possible for Mayfield, but expected.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick – 7% rostered

The Harvard Rifle is ol’ reliable. Fitzpatrick is currently ranked as QB20 with his 53.0 fantasy points, but that number could be on the rise after Week 4 due to a tremendous matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have allowed the most passing yards through three games in NFL history and the second-most points to opposing quarterbacks, and Fitzpatrick's propensity to throw the ball downfield is sure to produce strong results this week.

Fitz is available in the majority of fantasy leagues. He is projected as a borderline QB1, according to PFF’s fantasy projections.
