QB List’s Fantasy Football Rankings: Week 4

Erik Smith and Ryan Heath release their PPR fantasy football rankings for Week 4.

Erik Smith’s TE Rankings


  • George Kittle made his much-awaited return from injury in Week 3, playing a whopping 91% of the snaps (4th among tight ends), drawing an excellent 17% target share (8th among tight ends), and producing… 6.8 PPR points. This is the life of Kittle at this point, as his blocking ability and run-heavy offense are going to lead to some bad fantasy football weeks. He goes from a tough matchup in Denver to a tough matchup against the Rams, so it doesn’t get much easier, but Kittle needs to be in your lineup for the explosive upside that he brings to the table.


  • Notable snap shares from Week 3: Cameron Brate (89%), Kyle Pitts (67%), Robert Tonyan (58%), Irv Smith Jr. (51%), Mike Gesicki (40%), Hayden Hurst (38%), Albert Okwuegbunam (32%).
  • Tight ends with target shares over 20% in Week 3: Mark Andrews (48%), Kyle Pitts (42%), David Njoku (32%), Travis Kelce (24%), and Robert Tonyan (21%).


  • It doesn’t take much to vault into the top ten of Week 4’s tight end rankings. David Njoku exploded last week, producing 9 catches for 89 yards and a touchdown on his aforementioned 32% target share. The snap share hadn’t been a problem, as Njoku’s 90% snaps share is the third best among all tight ends for the year, but seeing the usage last week was a shock. With a matchup against the Falcons on tap, a defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends on the year, give me Njoku’s superior upside as opposed to the boring floor that we have seen from T.J. Hockenson. You can compare more players by checking out our Range of Outcomes Sit/Start Tool.
