Week 4 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

Must Add

Terrelle Pryor- I talked about him as a deeper league add before, but now he’s and add across the board. He did a little bit of everything Sunday, throwing for 35 yards, rushing four times for 21 yards and a TD and led the team in all receiving categories with 8 catches for 144 yards on 14 targets. With Corey Coleman out he is the only viable receiver on the roster right now, and if he stays involved in the offense in other ways he’ll be an even greater value going forward.

DeVante Parker- He has had 20 targets, 11 catches, 157 yards and a TD in each of his last two games. He’s the #2 option in the passing game behind Jarvis Landry and is a good flex option going forward.

Jordan Howard- He seemingly replaced Jeremy Langford as the Bears starting RB against the Cowboys. Langford started the game but then didn’t get any usage after the 1st quarter or so with Howard coming in. Howard had 9 carries for 45 yards and 4 catches for 47 yards on 6 targets. Compare that to Langford having 3 carries for 31 yards and 2 catches for 15 yards on 3 targets.

Cameron Brate- The Buccaneers cut Austin Seferian-Jenkins earlier in the week and Brate took advantage as the starter right away. He had 5 catches for 46 yards and two TD’s on 10 targets against the Rams and is a must own tight end going forward now that he is the lone Bucs tight end.

Orleans Darkwa- 11 touches for 62 yards and a rushing TD against the Redskins, and one Shane Vereen injury later, Darkwa finds himself the only healthy RB on the Giants. Rashad Jennings missed last week with an injury and Vereen was placed on IR earlier this week. I wouldn’t play him this week against the Vikings, but if Jennings is still hurt he will have a role in the offense.

Eagles D/ST- They’re worth stashing during the bye week. I think this a legit top 10 defense the rest of the season. They are the #2 fantasy defense through 3 weeks and have conceded 27 points in three games this season.

On the Fantasy Radar

Hunter Henry- He is the heir apparent to Antonio Gates, and his time may be coming sooner rather than later. Gates didn’t play Sunday and Henry stepped right in by catching all 5 of his targets for 76 yards. He’s a player to keep an eye on with TE being such a crapshoot this year.

Trevor Siemian- He just lit up the Bengals for 312 yards and 4 TD’s in his first ever road start and led the week at QB. For what it’s worth his next three opponents are Tampa Bay, Atlanta and San Diego, who don’t scare me at all.

Carson Wentz- I don’t know how much I buy it, but it’s working. Wentz QB10 through 3 weeks should be considered as a pick-up after the Eagles bye week.

Dak Presscott- Two rushing TD’s through 3 games, and he finall threw a passing TD as well. He’s QB11 through three weeks and is worth a go against a 49ers defense that just got beat by a limping Russell Wilson and Trevone Boykin

Eagles RB’s- Kenjon Barner, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood all scored against the Steelers in the blowout win last Sunday after Ryan Matthews went down with an ankle injury. The only one I would be interested in right now would be Sproles, and mostly in PPR leagues. Sproles was the only one of the three with a catch and has a more defined role as a hybrid back in the Eagles offense. I’d need to see more from the other two before considering adding them.

Previously Mentioned

Adam Humpries- Like I said last time, he is the #2 receiver on the Buccaneers. He had 9 catches for 100 yards on 12 targets against the Rams and more importantly, had only one less target than Mike Evans.

Jameis Winston- After an atrocity against Arizona Winston was back to being a very good high volume QB against the Rams. He attempted a week leading 58 passes for 405 yards, 3 TD’s and one interception. He has Denver this week, but is a solid QB2 going forward.

Jamison Crowder- He’ a legit WR3 in PPR. He leads the Skins in catches, is tied for the team lead in targets(24 through 3 games), and showed off the wheels on a 55 yard TD from a screen pass against the Giants.
