NFL Week 4 positional fantasy football rankings

2RM4P7N Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (1) hands off to running back Raheem Mostert (31) during the first quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars in an NFL preseason football game Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023, in Jacksonville, Fla. (Al Diaz/Miami Herald via AP)

Raheem Mostert is a must-start: While De’Von Achane got plenty of praise as a waiver target, Mostert also scored four touchdowns and has become an obvious player to start until the Miami Dolphins give us reason not to start him.
