Fantasy Football 2023: Week 4 RB Rankings

All I can think about from last week is the Miami Dolphins backfield. Raheem Mostert is showing that age doesn’t matter after scoring four touchdowns. And let’s not forget about De’Von Achane putting up four touchdowns as well and rushing for 203 yards. So your best bet going into my Week 4 RB rankings is that these two jumped up the board.

Some other notable running backs from last week that showed up included Kenneth Walker III, Zack Moss, and James Conner. But some other big-name RBs fell off last week including Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, and Bijan Robinson. So if you’re not sure who to start this week, trust me you are going to want to pay attention to these rankings this week.

Also, on a side note, Alvin Kamara is back this week. Congrats to all the holders who kept a bench spot open for three weeks.

Week 4 Running Back Notes

  • I mentioned Conner’s name earlier and after what he did to the Cowboys last week, he jumps up to my RB14 for Week 4. I don’t care what defense Conner goes against; at this point, he is going to produce. The Cowboys are ranked as the third toughest defense against running backs and Conner put up 98 rushing yards and a touchdown. This week he has the 49ers defense. Their run defense has been solid, but all they’ve faced off against have been Najee Harris, Kyren Williams, and Matt Breida. So, they’ve only gone against one top running back and Williams had over 100 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns that game. Conner’s 73% snap share is sure to keep him in line for another big game this week.
  • Alexander Mattison is an interesting running back. I have him as my RB19 this week, and trust me he should be lower, but he is still getting a ton of volume. He is on the field 77% of the time through three weeks, despite his ball security issues. I know Cam Akers is on the team now. But, I don’t see Akers jumping into the starting role this week. And I don’t see it for the rest of the season. Mattison knows this offense and they keep feeding him the ball. Expect a solid performance this week against a terrible Panther’s run defense.
  • Jaylen Warren is my RB30 this week and right in front of him at RB29 is Najee Harris. I have these two neck-and-neck because they pretty much are a 50/50 split in terms of usage in the offense. Last week Harris played 31 snaps and Warren had 28 snaps. Harris is not the workhorse back in this offense and it looks like Warren is the more productive back. This will be an interesting week against the Texans, who are an exciting team to watch. I expect a high-scoring game this week, which means a ton of fantasy points.
  • Lastly, I have to talk about Kamara. I have him as my RB20 this week. With Jamaal Williams out and Kendre Miller still getting his feet wet. The Saints need a solid running back. Also, Derek Carr looks like he won’t suit up this week. So, that means Jameis Winston will get the start. This is a quarterback Kamara is familiar with, so the chemistry will already be there.
