Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 4

Jamaal Williams is ranked as a must-start running back for Week 4

With injuries to some big-name running backs in Week 3, fantasy managers need to be prepared to start some backups in Week 4. Khalil Herbert in Chicago is one player to keep an eye on. David Montgomery went down early in Week 3 and was ruled out for the rest of the game. There is no indication of if he will play in Week 4 as of this writing (and he is ranked low), but Herbert certainly did well enough in his absence to warrant another start.

Dalvin Cook left with a shoulder injury, so be sure Alexander Mattison is rostered as well. Cook seems to be on track to play and is ranked as such. He's ranked as an RB2, because even if he does play, it seems likely that he will not be 100 percent and may not even be given a full workload. And lastly, D'Andre Swift is considered "week to week" with a shoulder injury, which makes Jamaal Williams an RB1.
