With Week 4 in the books, it’s again time to look at the players who excelled in fantasy football despite mainly being unowned.

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

1

QB - Sam Darnold, Panthers (18.0%) - 301 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 35 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns

Yes, your NFL leading rushing touchdown leader through four weeks is Darnold with five. He had the same amount in his first 38 games through his previous three seasons with the Jets.

2

RB - Kenneth Gainwell, Eagles (24.7%) - 31 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 6 receptions, 58 receiving yards

A fifth-round pick in 2021, Gainwell’s run cut the Eagles’ deficit to five with an early fourth-quarter score from seven yards out. He played a season-high 39% of the offensive snaps in Week 4 according to Pro Football Reference.
