2015 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 4

Matthew Emmons - USA Today Sports
Week 3 was interesting with so many injuries in the league and the number of touchdowns on the ground. There are a number of solid pick-ups at RB and WR to get your bench built up or replace any injured players.


Must Grab: 

Matt Jones (RB, WAS) - it's more and more clear that Alfred Morris will continue to lose carries to Matt Jones. Jones is a huge RB and is extremely fast; he has a wonderful future in the NFL if he can stay healthy and be effective. He is a must add addition in any format.

Devonta Freeman (RB, ATL) - what was most impressive about Freeman this weekend is that he did all of this against Dallas' run defense. Not only did he prove he can be a three down back while Tevin Coleman recovers, but he showed he can be extremely effective as well.

Karlos Williams (RB, BUF) - Williams has been a solid pick-up through the first three weeks of the season. There is a chance McCoy sits out this week so Williams would be a very solid starter in Week 4; he is a must grab player.

Spot-Starter: 

Tyrod Taylor (QB, BUF) - he is looking more comfortable with every week that goes by and he can get you through the bye-week or be an injury spot-starter.

Rishard Matthews (WR, MIA) - he is clearly a big target for Ryan Tannehill and should be considered as a spot-starter for any underperforming WR on your team.

Thomas Rawls (RB, SEA) - clearly played better than Fred Jackson and if Marshawn Lynch is out next week with a hamstring injury you can expect Rawls to get the majority of the carries. If you are a Lynch owner and have room on your bench it would be good to have Rawls ready for next week.

Alfred Blue (RB, HOU) - had a solid game this weekend, but is still a bit of a wild-card because he could easily get benched. He has a chance to put up a solid game next week if Arian Foster is out again, but you have to know he is a bit of a gamble.

Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews (RB, PHI) - both played well enough in place for Demarco Murray this weekend and if Murray is out again next week then Mathews and Sproles will get carries. Both are are very TD dependant, but if you are looking for a RB to start in place of an injury then Mathews or Sproles is someone to consider.

LeGarrette Blount (RB, NE) - don't be fooled, Dion Lewis is still the starting RB for the Patriots. The reason Blount was given so much work is because of the monster lead NE had. He is still a nice RB to stash in a high-scoring offense, but will be TD dependant weekly.

Chris Johnson (RB, ARZ) - Chris Johnson continues to start in place of Andre Ellington and can be spot-started if you are in need of a RB. He does have downside risk each week, but in deeper leagues you can turn to Johnson as a starting RB.

Lance Dunbar (RB, DAL) - if you are in a PPR league then look to Dunbar as a player who can get you 10+ points a week just in the fact that he will be getting many dump-off passes.

Marvin Jones (WR, CIN) - finding the end-zone weekly for the Bengals and if you are in deep TD only league then Jones is a fairly reliable spot-starter.

Bilal Powell (RB, NYJ) - he should only be considered if Ivory sits out in Week 4, but it doesn't look like Ivory will miss another week, so he will be a game-time decision.

Michael Vick (QB, PIT) - with the shear amount of talent around Vick he should be able to put up usable fantasy points, but know he will be a gamble.

Antonio Andrews (RB, TEN) - The Titans are looking for a RB and giving everyone a shot; Andrews has a chance to keep the job and is only someone to stash at this point until we see more.

Watch: 

Matt Cassel (QB, DAL) - Brandon Weedon will not be the starting QB for the Cowboys for the long-term. You can expect Cassell to supplant Weedon within the next couple of weeks.

Rueben Randle (WR, NYG) - Randle had a solid game against the Redskins, but Victor Cruz will be returning soon and will cut into Randle's workload.

Ted Ginn Jr. (WR, CAR) - with the lack of depth at WR in Carolina Ginn finds himself in a starting role that will yield four to six catches a week with TD upside.
