BucDad's #WaiverWireFinds for Week 4

This week is set to be interesting yet again with more injuries piling up and to spice things up, COVID-19 has made an appearance within players and personnel resulting in players such as Cam Newton and now Stephon Gilmore to be scratched and put on the COVID list. Take it from someone who has Newton rostered, these waivers are worth taking a look at in an emergency or even if it's just to find some depth for those "just in case" moments.


Justin Herbert, LAC: With a Monday Night showdown between Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, this matchup could easily turn into a shootout. Herbert has thrown for 931 yards, 5 TDs, and 3 INTs while completing 80% of his passes since starting in place of Tyrod Taylor the last 3 games. Herbert is averaging between 23-24 points each week (24 pts against in a loss to Tampa Bay in Week 4). Very reliable 2nd option in 82% of fantasy leagues

Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA: With 3 games of 20-plus points, the situation in Miami is a roller-coaster but at this moment it's a fun one. Not recommended as QB1 unless the matchup is a perfect fit.

Running Backs:

Justin Jackson, LAC: With Ekeler being out, the basic intuition is to pick up his back up Joshua Kelley, but Justin Jackson is a sleeper option. Jackson is averaging 4.8-yards per carry to go along with 24 receptions in his career. With a friendly schedule ahead for the Chargers. Jackson will at worst split touches with Kelley.

Damien Harris, NE: Harris compiled 100-yards on 17 carries in his NFL debut in Week 4. Even in a deep backfield, Harris is a rock-solid runner as the team will look to rely heavily on the run attack.

D'Ernest Johnson, CLE: With Nick Chubb expected to miss at least six weeks, Hunt is expected to carry the majority of the workload, but Johnson is worth rostering for depth as he registered 95-yards rushing behind Hunt during a Week 4 win against the Cowboys.

Wide Receiver:

Hunter Renfrow, LV: Has 10 or more points in the last two games to go along with his 17 total targets in that time period. With Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards both miss Week 5, Renfrow could be a solid option for depth or FLEX option depending on the matchup.

Scotty Miller, TB: With Evans and Godwin both nursing injuries within the first 4 weeks, Miller has earned the trust of Tom Brady and has been rewarded with double-digit scoring in the last 3 out of 4 games. (Note: Miller was targeted at least 5 times in those 3 games)

Tight End:

Dalton Schultz, DAL: Has become the type of player that everyone was expecting Blake Jarwin to be prior to his season-ending knee injury. Schultz has been targeted 24 times in the last 3 weeks. Would be a quality depth filler unless your tight ends have been booty so far.
