Week 4 Flex Rankings – Touch and Go with the Titans

The NFL is in the midst of its first Covid-19 outbreak of the 2020 season and it adds some uncertainty to my Week 4 Flex Rankings. Several members of the Tennessee Titans and their staff tested positive following their last-minute victory in Minnesota last week. The positive tests leave questions about their upcoming game with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

As of now, the game has been postponed, though the expectation is that the teams will be able to play Monday evening. Many fantasy leagues have yet to determine how to handle the impending postponement. If the game is indeed played on Monday, odds are it will be included in this week’s slate. That means all options are currently on the table for my Week 4 Flex Rankings and there would be virtually no impact from a fantasy perspective. However, if the game is pushed beyond Monday, it could be a tricky situation for fantasy managers to navigate.

Say what?! Your fantasy football league isn’t using Fantrax this season? Unthinkable! Check out all the features Fantrax has to offer, and we think you’ll be singing a different tune for the coming season.

There are plenty of Titans and Steelers players who are fixtures on fantasy rosters. I have included nearly a dozen players from that game in my Week 4 Flex rankings. As things stand at the moment, I would not make any drastic roster moves out of fear of the game not being played.

All Titans and Steelers are ranked as though the game will go on without a hitch. But it could be wise for fantasy managers to have contingency plans in place just in case. We simply do not know how the next couple of days will play out regarding this issue. The game may seemingly be on track, only for it to be called off or postponed at the last minute. That would leave managers relying on Titans and Steelers players without much recourse when setting their Week 4 lineups.

Week 4 News and Notes

One more thing to consider concerning the situation in Tennessee is that reports of A.J. Brown’s availability for Week 4 may be few and far between in the coming days. The second-year star has missed the last two games with a knee injury. As of now, I do not have him ranked, but he would slide into WR2 territory if he can suit up. Diontae Johnson is in the concussion protocol for Pittsburgh. At the risk of downplaying such an issue, I do currently have Johnson ranked among my Flex options, though managers should exercise the necessary caution given both the injury and the COVID situation.

Brown is one of several elite wide receivers who could be back in action in Week 4. Michael Thomas, Davante Adams, and Julio Jones are a few of the game’s top pass-catchers who hope to take the field this week. I do have all three stud wideouts ranked as though they will play. You do not need me to tell you to start them if they are active. Their availability would likely have an impact on the appeal of several secondary Flex options on their respective teams.

For example, I am a bit lower than the consensus rankings on Emmanuel Sanders, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Russell Gage. That would change if the aforementioned star receivers do not heal in time to play this week.

I have listed several other players with injury issues at the bottom of my Week 4 Flex rankings. This list includes Chris Carson, Jamison Crowder, John Brown, Christian Kirk, and Henry Ruggs. I do not expect them to play this week, but I will update these rankings over the weekend.

In the meantime, if Crowder can play on Thursday, I would not have an issue using him this week in a pinch. There are much safer options on the board of course, but the Jets have precious few receivers at their disposal. Sam Darnold would likely target Crowder heavily out of the slot in a matchup against undrafted rookie free agent Essang Bassey.
