Fantasy Updates: Latest news on Tee Higgins, Antonio Brown, Diontae Johnson affecting Week 4 WR rankings

Get the latest injury updates on each other ahead of your Week 4 roster decisions, as there is always plenty of fallout when a key receiver misses a game.

WEEK 4 STANDARD RANKINGS:

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Tee Higgins injury update

Higgins (shoulder) missed Week 3 against the Steelers, and according to the Bengals’ injury report, he would not have practiced Monday if they had taken the field. Since it’s a short week, it feels like Higgins is trending toward not playing, but we don’t have the full picture yet. We’ll update this post as news comes in, but just prepare for life without him.

If he does play, this is a juicy matchup with Jacksonville, who arguably has the worst defense in the NFL. If he doesn’t play, Ja’Marr Chase has real top-10 potential this week, and Tyler Boyd is a must-start. For now, we rank Higgins as the WR29 in standard leagues and in PPR.

WEEK 4 PPR RANKINGS:

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Antonio Brown COVID-19 update

Brown missed Week 3 due to testing positive for COVID-19, and it’s obviously tough to know whether he’ll be good to go for Week 4. He has to turn in two negative tests 24 hours apart, so this will just be a wait-and-see game. The Patriots are a tough matchup, as they’ve been a top-seven unit in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers. However, can you really sit any of the Buccaneers’ pass-catchers in the ‘Tom Brady revenge’ game?

Brown is our No. 32 WR in standard and No. 34 WR in PPR this week. If he misses the game, it just means more targets for Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin. We don’t expect any of the backup WRs to be much of a factor.

WEEK 4 WAIVERS: Top pickups

Diontae Johnson injury Update

Johnson’s absence because of a knee injury opened the door for a flurry of targets to Najee Harris and Chase Claypool. If Johnson misses Week 4, those two and JuJu Smith-Schuster (if healthy) should see a healthy serving of targets against the Packers. We’ll know more about Johnson’s status as the week progresses, but he’s on the edge of a must-start WR in PPR leagues purely due to the number of targets and catches he racks up.

He is our WR30 in PPR leagues and WR34 in standard leagues for Week 4. His ceiling is high, as it wouldn’t shock anyone if he has double-digit receptions, but surely his injury will play some factor if he’s out there. If both Johnson and Smith-Schuster (ribs) are out, James Washington would potentially have flex value, and TE Pat Freiermuth would also be on the start-sit bubble.
