Each week, PFF's fantasy football analysts post rankings in PPR, non-PPR and 0.5-PPR formats for the league's offensive skill positions. IDP rankings are also folded into the mix, making the PFF rankings pages the go-to resource for all your fantasy football decisions during the 2021 NFL season.

According to FantasyPros, my rankings placed second in accuracy among 149 experts in 2020 and third among 129 experts in 2019. Through three weeks of the 2021 season, I rank ninth out of 192.

Here are my fantasy football rankings for Week 4 of the 2021 NFL season, including some notes about players to help you make your weekly decisions.

Josh Allen had a slow start to the season, but he finished Week 3 as the top-scoring fantasy quarterback. He has a chance to repeat that against the Texans in the only good matchup for a top-10 signal-caller on this slate. Houston has been below average in allowing fantasy points to quarterbacks and fields a secondary with a subpar PFF grade. The Texans have also yet to face a quarterback as talented as Allen this season.

Washington’s Taylor Heinicke is potentially the best option for someone in need of a quarterback off the waiver wire. He faces an Atlanta team that’s allowed the third-most points to fantasy quarterbacks so far this year after giving up the second-most last season.
