Week 4 WR Waiver Pickups & Adds: Fantasy Football FAAB Bids, % Owned

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.

Those who picked up the Chiefs wide receivers last week were rewarded with a touchdown a piece. John Brown had another solid volume game and put up some PPR points. DJ Chark, Preston Williams, and Nelson Agholor should become more popular this week after they rewarded owners who grabbed them off the waiver wire. If DK Metcalf, John Brown, and Terry McLaurin are still out there, they are top priority. However, after three weeks of them being in the list, it is time to talk about some new names. Injuries are piling up, and to win those fantasy football leagues, you are going to have to win the waiver wire as well. You can find the top wide receivers to pick up by rank for this upcoming week.

Mecole Hardman – Kansas City Chiefs

Mecole Hardman now has back-to-back games with a touchdown. He had a 70-yard touchdown called back last week, but produced a 4-61-1 line on six targets. Targets are going to be around the 5-6 range each week, and the plus side is that this passing attack is so good it allows multiple receivers and tight ends to have strong games. Hardman’s speed allows for the big plays to come as well, and we have seen that already over the last two weeks. Demarcus Robinson picked up more ownership compared to Hardman, but their upside and floor is very similar moving forward.

DJ Chark – Jacksonville Jaguars

DJ Chark had another strong game with Gardner Minshew under center, and this was against a tougher Titans defense. He has a 15 receptions, 277 yards, and three touchdowns to start the year. While his volume is still behind Dede Westbrook, the production has been far better. Chark has solid value moving forward, even if it isn’t a pass heavy offense. There isn’t much of a threat for production behind him.

Preston Williams – Miami Dolphins

Preston Williams put together another respectable week against Dallas, as the Dolphins continue to play from behind. The difference this week was that he had 12 targets, which was more than the 11 in his previous two weeks. He is up to 23 targets over the first three games, and has produced double-digit PPR points in three straight weeks. Not overly exciting numbers, but there are not a lot of wideouts who can say they’ve produced that in three weeks.

Phillip Dorsett – New England Patriots

Phillip Dorsett is up to a 13-187-3 line to start the season, and his down week was when Antonio Brown played. He is now out of town, and Dorsett gets back into an offense that is actually throwing the ball quite more than expected. Dorsett has some value given that Brown is gone, and also will have more value if Gordon or Edelman miss any time with their injuries.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling – Green Bay Packers

After a poor Week 2 performance, Marquez Valdes-Scantling was dropped in about 10% of leagues. He is down to about 50%. He is now posting a 13-170-1 line through two weeks. MVS has seen 21 targets over the first three games. People are likely disappointed with the Green Bay pass attack, but Minnesota, Denver, and Chicago in the first three weeks is not a great schedule. They will take on Philadelphia, Dallas, Detroit, Oakland, and Kansas City over the next few weeks. These set up for better performances.

James Washington – Pittsburgh Steelers

Donte Moncrief was a healthy scratch, putting James Washington and Diontae Johnson in line with 3WR sets. JuJu Smith-Schuster of course is the other one. Mason Rudolph did not look good, and the Steelers failed to throw the ball more than five yards down field. That isn’t optimal, but at some point they will have to take the chains off. Washington and Johnson are both worth flyers as the Steelers have a better schedule coming up outside of the Ravens.

Cole Beasley – Buffalo Bills

Josh Allen looks much more comfortable this season, especially with shorter route passes. This sets up Cole Beasley to continue being a safety blanket for Allen, as we have seen already. The touchdowns won’t be there, but the weekly PPR value is at least decent. He has 17-171-0 line through three weeks. The Bills offense overall has looked a lot better this season, and Allen seems to have the keys to throw the ball more.
