WEEK 4 FANTASY WAIVER WIRE TARGET
Week 3 had cooled down with the injuries compared to two weeks ago where running backs were dropping everywhere you looked.
Week 4 has some very interesting matchups that have either great match-ups on paper or they have been very useful for players that have not lived to the draft hype. These players are less than 50% owned in NFL fantasy leagues and should be worth a pick up once waivers hit this week.
Trevor Siemian, DEN— Is he really this good? In a matchup in Cincinnati, which is not an easy place to play, the young quarterback threw to the tune of 312 yards and 4 touchdowns. The kid looks good on the road, spreading it out to 9 different players. Partner that with a matchup in Tampa Bay with a defense that gave up almost 650 yards in the first two weeks and made Case Keenum look good, and Trevor is a very good stream this week.
Kirk Cousins, WAS— I know, I know. I know what you're thinking. Cousins has not looked good. Heck, half his teammates don't seem to respect him as a quarterback. But this could be his best game of the season and how can you look at his matchup at home and not love it? He plays at home against the Browns, who on the road this year has giving up 29+ points to their opponent. Start Captain Kirk with confidence.
Jordan Howard,CHI— Is anyone surprised that Langford isn't that good? His stats have been skewed because of high volume. Howard is a lot better running back and he is a lot better in between the tackles. I watched the Dallas-Chicago game and it just looks like Jordan Howard is the better runner. He should not be available on any waivers. Grab him. NOW.
Kenneth Dixon, BAL— If talent is a thing in football, why don't you stash Dixon? He is a very talented running back and even the RB coach has said he could be the starter when he gets back in action in either week 5 or week 6. Forsett has been very ineffective and none of the other running backs on the roster is “running” away with this job. (See what I did there?) Pick him up, stash him and reap the benefits in a few weeks.
Cole Beasley, DAL— Dak loves this guy, so why don't you? He is averaging 6-7 catches and 71 yards a game. In PPR, thats 13-14 points a game. Thats better than his teammate Dez Bryant and Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb who are both 95% owned. Cole is 6.9% owned! Cole has some juicy match ups coming up with SF, CLE, and obviously the NFC East. Plus, did I mention Dak loves Cole Beasley?
Adam Humphries, TB— Its time to stop ignoring Adam Humphries. He is obviously the number two target behind Mike Evans. Vincent Jackson is starting to look Roddy White of a year or two ago. Slowly losing touches to the younger talent around him. His yards have gone up week by week, (34, 67, 100) and really is starting to look like a Julian Edelman-esque player. The 5’11, 195 pound wideout is a must have as the Bucs look like they are going to continue to be behind and that will make Jamies Winston sling the ball.
Cameron Brate, TB— Austin Seferian-Jenkins is going to be catching passes from Fitzpatrick and the Jets now so Brate has little to no competition. He may not be a TE1 just yet but how he was targeted by Jamies Winston in week 3, he looks like a good bye replacement, which will help with 9 weeks of byes starting this week.
