Fantasy Football Week 4: Waiver Wire

1 of 3

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Every week on Tuesday, I will be posting my top Fantasy Football waiver wire pick ups for the week. Only players owned in under 50% of Yahoo leagues will qualify. There are all sorts of leagues out there with different levels of competition and varying player pool depths, so I will have a few picks with under 50% ownership, a few under 30%, 15%,  and usually at least one deep sleeper under 5%.

The players are listed by position first, then by the order that I would add them. If there are any players you have a specific question about feel free to hit me up in the comments or on Twitter.

Week 4 Waiver Wire Picks:


Tyrod Taylor, BUF (39%) – After three weeks Taylor is averaging 24.3 fantasy points per game and is coming off his best start against a solid Dolphins defense. Taylor has a lot of weapons to throw to and adds value with his ability to run the ball. I’m not ready to start him every week, but he should be owned in every format.

Derek Carr, OAK (25%) – After a disappointing first week, Carr has been solid with consecutive 300+ yard games, 5 TDs, and just 1 INT. Carr has a legit #1 WR in Amari Cooper and could have a big game this week against a struggling Bears secondary.
