As we enter Week 4, if you play in 10 or 12 team leagues especially, it is time to check for drops daily. Bad decisions are made all the time. So if someone bails on Tom Brady or D.J. Moore, you absolutely pounce on that chance. That being said, this is a spicy week. We can still find some help with skill guys. QB, well, wash rinse repeat. Let’s get into Week 4 Waivers.
Trevor Lawrence – 50% rostered – In his last two weeks, he has about 500 yards and 5 touchdowns. The Jaguars are looking like a much different team under Doug Pederson and Lawrence is finding his footing. He’s more of a sit week 4 vs a tough Eagles team but a must-add in all formats for ROS.
Jameis Winston – 28% rostered – We should monitor his health and practice this week as he’s looked banged up. But if a go, Minnesota is giving up 275 passing yards per game so far this season and in London could be a get-right game for him.
Jared Goff – 30.7% rostered – The Legion of Boom is long gone, and Seattle’s defense has shown holes (240 passing yards per game/23 PPG). Goff has taken care of the ball and has been respectable so far. He can be more game script prone but with Amon-Ra, Swift, and Hock he’s a decent swing this week again.
Jimmy Garoppolo – 17% rostered – Rams are not a great matchup but they can be bent. Jimmy and the 49ers have also been pretty good Vs them the last couple of seasons.
Notables – Geno Smith Vs Detroit and Matt Ryan Vs Tennessee. Both of those defenses are giving up over 400 yards per game and over 28 points per game.
Deeper League/Stashes – Zach Wilson is 5.7% rostered. He could be back as early as this week. If you hunt upside this is the best shot out there to stash.
Khalil Herbert – 25.2% rostered – 20 carries for 157 yards is hard to ignore. If Montgomery misses any time he is a legitimate RB2. Especially on the road against the Giants. Even with a healthy Montgomery, Herbert likely has made a case for more work and we have seen Bears are entirely run-heavy. He’s a must-add player.
Alexander Mattison – 37.1% rostered – We need to monitor Dalvin Cooks’ status for Week 4, but Cook has missed time with this injury before. And when Mattison starts he’s averaging almost 22 fantasy points per game. A must start Vs. a Saints defense giving up almost 130 rushing yards per game.
Jamaal Williams – 44.3 rostered – He may be the king vulture eating Swift’s manager’s souls, but he is also seeing enough work to warrant flex consideration.
Notables – Monitor Mixon on a short week. Samaje Perine is a good start if Mixon can’t go. James Cook saw a carry and 5 targets in his 10 snaps in Week 3. He’s got a ways to go but you see the talent and that they wanna get him involved. Stash now. Jerick McKinnon is still on the field 53% of the time.
Deeper League/Stashes – Tyler Allegeier, Jaylen Warren.
Romeo Doubs – 16.1% rostered – 8 targets and a TD in an offense where Aaron Rodgers is trying to find a go-to WR. Could be a breakout or could be a streamer. Must-add all around.
Zay Jones – 8.6% rostered – His second appearance here and it’s tied to T Law. If we see a legit Lawrence breakout, being that system’s #2 in targets could be very useful. As was his 10 catches on 11 targets in Week 3.
Notables – These guys remain useful if others remain out. Mack Hollins (Hunter Renfrow), Greg Dortch (Rondale Moore, DeAndre Hopkins), Joshua Palmer (Keenan Allen), and Isaiah McKenzie (Stefon Diggs).
Deeper League/Stashes – Tre’Quan Smith (all Saints WRs are banged up), Alec Pierce.
Tyler Conklin – 11.5% rostered – 8 targets again and this is with C.J. Uzomah back. Hard to ignore the usage with Flacco under center. Zach Wilson is more of a mystery.
Logan Thomas – 46.6% rostered – It was just a bad week overall for Commanders. Wentz will have better days and then so will Thomas. Still streamable in better matchups.
David Njoku– 32% rostered – 10 targets in Week 3 puts him back on the streaming radar. Hopefully, he can build on it.
Notables– Cameron Brate (Mike Evans will be back in Week 4 but Brady’s other options remain iffy).
Deeper League/Stashes– Jelani Woods (hard to trust rookie TEs but after this week maybe his role grows).
