QB rankings and streaming advice for Week 4 of the 2020 fantasy football season.

Week 3 was the week of the backups. And in some cases, it was the backup’s backup.

  • Down 28-10 with 10 minutes left, Jeff Driskel was benched for Brett Rypien, who completed his first eight passes for 53 yards before tossing an interception on his ninth and final attempt. Head coach Vic Fangio announced Tuesday that Rypien will get the start on Thursday Night Football against the Jets.
  • Nick Foles, arguably the greatest back-up/replacement quarterback in the history of football, replaced Mitchell Trubisky in the third quarter against the Falcons to lead the Bears to a comeback victory, notching 188 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Head coach Matt Nagy was quick to confirm the starting role is Foles’ “moving forward.”
  • Nick Mullens kept the injured 49ers offense afloat with 343 yards, a touchdown, and a win against the Giants. What the stats don’t show — with Mullens under center, the 49ers never punted the ball. In his eight possessions, he led the team to four touchdowns and three field goals (and one missed field goal). Jimmy Garoppolo is still week-to-week with an ankle injury but is expected to take back the starting job when healthy.

Meanwhile, excruciating quarterback performances by Sam Darnold (three picks), Carson Wentz (third consecutive two-interception game), and Dwayne Haskins (three picks) force backup discussions to continue into Week 4.

But that’s why we have this column, right?

Recapping my picks, Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert continued to impress fantasy-wise (though both still fighting for their first NFL wins), each with over 300 yards. Burrow added two touchdowns, and Herbert had one. Unfortunately, the Minshew Magic fizzled out this week and Gardner Minshew all but turned into a pumpkin, getting demolished by Miami with just 275 yards and an interception.

TwoQB Joe Burrow 20.4 FP
Streamer Justin Herbert 14.7 FP
Second Streamer Gardner Minshew 9.2 FP

Further adding fuel to the streamer fire: On Tuesday morning, it was announced that the Tennessee Titans had eight new positive cases and would be shutting down their facility until Saturday. The Titans played the Vikings just two days prior, effectively shutting the Vikings down until Sunday as well. The Titans-Steelers game has been postponed to either Monday or Tuesday, and the Vikings-Texans game may face a similar fate.
