Week 4 Fantasy Football Start Rankings

September 30, 2009 | Thyrl Nelson

Here are the Fantasy Flavor, Fantasy Football Start Rankings for Week 4. The byes are here, which means more tough lineup decisions to deliberate over. The formulary rankings are based on 2 parts individual performance, and one part defensive draw. Remember, it’s not an inducement to do anything crazy. It’s more of a guideline to help when scouring the waiver wire, or working through a tough decision. The formulary numbers are listed in parentheses behind each player, the lower the number the better.
