We're coming up on a quarter of the games played for the 2011 season. Who has established themselves as the fantasy leaders? We check the Week 4 projections.

How are your quarterbacks holding up? Are you an owner of Tom Brady or Drew Brees? If so, you've been golden through the season so far. Which quarterbacks will shine in Week 4?

Our partner, numberFire.com, has run the statistics for this week and come up with their projections of fantasy points. Their list updates through the week as we get more information about injuries and players who might be seeing more opportunity. So check in with them later in the week. As of right now, the computers says:

It's Tom and Drew who should dominate again this week. If you own Big Ben, this might be the week you want to rely on him. He's going against an improved Houston defense, but one that still gives up points to opposing quarterbacks. So this may be the week Roethlisberger gets well. Matthew Stafford will likely have to rely on his receivers against Dallas who has been tough to run on this year.

* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.

Injured players appear on the list, this is their projection IF they play.
