The week 4 waiver wire will see some more players that need to be targeted. By this point of the season we have seen some major injuries. Plenty of players have been picked up or dropped. As the season goes on further and further there will be less and less waiver wire pick ups. If there is a major injury then spend all that free agency bidding. So let us share our week 4 waiver wire pick ups. (ESPN % for roster)
Ryan Fitzpatrick (5.6%)
Fitzmagic has put together 2 quality weeks for fantasy purposes. Last week he not only threw for two touchdowns but he also rushed for one. He gets a Seahawks secondary that has been exploited this year. Seattle has given up over 23 ppg to quarterbacks so far. If you need a streamer Fitzpatrick has a ton of upside if you need him.
Myles Gaskin (45.8%)
I keep saying Gaskin needs to be added. No he is not going to put up RB 1 numbers yet hes looking like a solid flex play every week. He is getting the majority of snaps and last week had 22 carries. If this trend continues he will simply be on the rise. Pick him up now.
Ryan Nall (0%)
With the news Tarik Cohen has torn his acl I am intrigued about Ryan Nall. Montgomery should be a workhorse but Cohen has been averaging 25 snaps per game. During his college career he was effective in the pass game. He averaged 10 yards per catch for his career. He also was effective after contact. In 2016 he posted an incredible 5.03 yards after contact. I would expect him to be the third down back. Give him a look if you are desperate.
Justin Jefferson (33.5%)
Jefferson may have finally come to life for the Vikings. After struggling the first two weeks Jefferson recorded a 7 catch 175 yard day for the Vikings. His 71 yard touchdown was electric and Cousins targeted him a ton. With an upcoming schedule consisting of Houston, Seattle and Atlanta he should have continue success against weaker defenses. Look to add him if you can.
Tee Higgins (7.0%)
Although many figured Higgins to be the guy one A.J. Green retired we may be seeing his impact much sooner. He improved upon a 6 week target from week 2 to 9 targets this week. He scored 2 touchdowns in a tie and finished as WR 13 in ppr leagues. If he can continue getting targets in a pass happy offense he can be fantasy relevant.
K.J. Hamler (4.2%)
Hamler was on the field for a team high 58 snaps in week 3 among receivers. He also was targeted 7 times in week 2 and 5 times in week 3. No I am not saying he will produce right away but he could be a stash. As stated in my start or sit video I was not expecting Denver to do anything this past week against the Bucs. The team now has the Jets, Dolphins and Falcons in 3 out of the next 5 weeks. He could be a look depending on the match up.
Brandon Aiyuk (16.6%)
Aiyuk came alive this past weekend and showed why he was a first round pick. Aiyuk was targeted 8 times and had 5 catches for 70 yards. He also rushed the ball for a touchdown as this team continues to use wide receivers in dynamic ways. Samuel is slated to come back in week 5 but I expect them to ease him in. With games against the Eagles and Dolphins this could be a good stretch for him
Allen Lazard (39%)
Is Lazard the wide receiver 2 in Green Bay? Well to be honest it probably will change every week. But he has had two quality fantast outputs this season and is averaging almost 6 targets per game. They also have used him on the ground as well. If you need some receiver depth put him on your roster.
Jimmy Graham (13.3%)
Graham was targeted 10 times last week and finished as the top overall tight end. I am not anticipating a repeat of this performance yet you have to wonder the impact of Foles. Foles has leaned on his tight ends before during his time with the Eagles. With a Bears team that has no definitive second receiving option Graham could be that guy. Pick him up if you need a playmaker.
