Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups & Adds: Fantasy Football 2019

The 2020 fantasy football draft is coming up. Lineups has the latest fantasy football rankings including defense fantasy football rankings. We have everything you need for your season long draft with accurate fantasy football projections and historical fantasy football stats. For you DFS junkies, check out our updated NFL DFS projections.

Well, I am already constantly refreshing to find Saquon Barkley news. There is a chance the Giants starting running back misses time after what looked to be a bad ankle injury. I wouldn’t go out and rush to grab the Giants backup, instead there are better backs in better situations to consider. T.Y. Hilton is another big name that left in Week 3. We will dive into a lot of names listed last week as some only reached the 40% mark. Be sure to catch all our Week 4 rankings and fantasy football advice.

Mecole Hardman – WR – Kansas City Chiefs

Average Ownership: 44%

As we said last week, the Chiefs offense can support multiple fantasy wideouts. Mecole Hardman had another strong game, going 2-97-1 on five targets. He is going to be a weekly home run threat, as we saw on the long touchdown. As long as Tyreek Hill is out injured, Hardman is going to see around 5-6 targets a game and have this type of upside. We will continue echo get exposure to any member of the Chiefs offense. Putting up these types of passing numbers, you can’t go wrong doing so.

DJ Chark – WR – Jacksonville Jaguars

Average Ownership: 41%

With rockstar Gardner Minshew throwing the ball, we can continue to look at these wideouts. DJ Chark had another strong week, posting a 4-76-1 line. He is up to 15-277-3 on the season, and needs to be owned in all leagues right now. He is averaging six targets a game over the first three weeks of the season, and looks to be the true number two behind Dede Westbrook when it comes to volume.

Demarcus Robinson – WR – Kansas City Chiefs

Average Ownership: 62%

Demarcus Robinson saw four targets, going 3-43-1 and just missing a long touchdown. His ownership went a lot higher after the big week compared to Mecole Hardman’s. If he is still out there in your league’s, go ahead and scoop him up because this is the last week. With Patrick Mahomes just tossing 300+ and 3+ touchdown games each week, the wide receiver production is going to be there.

Raheem Mostert – RB – San Francisco 49ers

Average Ownership: 42%

Raheem Mostert led all running backs with 79 rushing yards, and had 12 carries. Unfortunately Jeff Wilson stole the red zone touchdowns again. Mostert will continue to be in a committee and an unfriendly passing game approach for fantasy as the targets are spread out completely. Either way, Mostert’s talent is still worth picking up as he should be around 15 touches a game while Coleman is out.

Frank Gore – RB – Buffalo Bills

Average Ownership: 44%

Frank Gore just continues to churn out yards, and also had a touchdown in the Week 3 win against Cincinnati. Devin Singletary missed the game with a hamstring injury, which is always a tricky injury to come back from. With Singletary out, Gore is going to have plenty of value on a run heavy offense. However, the next week against New England is not a favorable matchup for him. Gore is still worth a look despite the tough Week 4 matchup.

Jamaal Williams – RB – Green Bay Packers

Average Ownership: 15%

Aaron Jones has produced the touchdowns over the last two games, but Jamaal Williams is getting a decent workload. He is more of a deeper league grab, or those dealing with bad running back depth. As far as moving the ball, Williams had the stronger game. He also out-touched Jones. Williams has also chipped in with a couple of catches each week. Williams is a guy worth monitoring as the Packers are here to establish the run.

Parris Campbell – WR – Indianapolis Colts

Average Ownership: 5%

T.Y. Hilton’s groin injury forced him out at the end of the second half. Hilton was dealing with this injury heading into the week.  The Colts have been spreading the ball out like crazy, and that spells trouble for fantasy. However, I still rather take a few shots on some of the pass-catchers. Parris Campbell is one of them. I still think his fantasy value is going to be long term, but injuries in the receiving core will help accelerate that.

Eric Ebron – TE – Indianapolis Colts

Average Ownership: 44%

Much like Parris Campbell, Eric Ebron is one of the pass-catchers I would take a shot on emerging given the injuries. We saw this passing offense move the ball well as they finally got a strong matchup to do so, and at home. Ebron took advantage of injuries last season, but more so to Jack Doyle. He also had Andrew Luck. Still unowned in half of leagues, Ebron is worth taking a shot on.

Ronald Jones – RB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Average Ownership: 42%

People were concerned after the Week 2 lack of touches, and it had to do with him being gimpy on his ankle. Week 3 was a bounce back spot, and overall he has flashed some big play potential. Ronald Jones was rewarded with more touches in the second half. Jones put up 121 yards on 15 touches. With some running backs dropping with injuries and touches, Jones is a name to keep an eye out for. Tampa Bay’s offense has ran the ball quite a bit so far to start the season.

Preston Williams – WR – Miami Dolphins

Average Ownership: 3%

Preston Williams saw 12 targets this week, and put up a 4-68-0 line. He has put up 10+ PPR points in each game so far this season, and continues to be a deep league option to keep an eye on. We know Miami is bad, and Josh Rosen would be an upgrade. Williams continues to be in line for solid volume, and this production isn’t sexy, but it is productive.
