Marcus Mariota, Jaylen Samuels, and Ricky Seals-Jones were among those that had productive games.

As we do every week, let’s take a look at the Week 4 fantasy football stars who were likely unowned.

In order to be eligible for consideration, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. One quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be included each week.

1

Quarterback - Marcus Mariota, Titans (227 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 22 rushing yards)

In the previous two games, Mariota had thrown just one touchdown pass in his 67 attempts. This is his second game this season with three touchdown throws (also did so in Week 1) after he didn’t accomplish that once in 2018. According to USA Today, it’s the third time ever that he completed three touchdown passes in the first half.

2

Running back - Dontrell Hilliard, Browns (27 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 2 receptions, 27 receiving yards)

Entering Week 4, second-year back Hilliard had one career carry to his name. He received some garbage time in the Browns’ victory over the Ravens and scored his first career touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
