Fantasy football rankings for Week 4: What can the Dolphins do for an encore?

This week's marquee matchup comes when the Miami Dolphins -- fresh off a 70-point explosion vs. Denver -- travel to face the Buffalo Bills, who nearly pitched a shutout last Sunday and have yielded just 35 points in three games.

What will happen in the NFL's version of the irresistible force meets the immovable object?

Fantasy football rankings for Week 4 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Rankings are compiled by Daniel Dobish, TheHuddle.com
