Fantasy Football 2015: Week 4 Waiver Wire Update
Taking a Look at the Week 4 Waiver Wire Trends
September 29, 2015
Week 3 is all finished up in the NFL, and that means we fantasy football owners can start looking forward to Week 4 and adjusting our rosters accordingly. We’ve got a fresh crop of trending waiver wire names for you to peruse, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Karlos Williams, RB, Buffalo Bills: Williams is one of the hottest names on the waiver wire right now, thanks to a fine performance against the Dolphins. He posted 12 rushes for 110 yards and a touchdown in that one, giving him scores in all three games so far.
With LeSean McCoy ailing due to a hamstring injury, Williams’ value skyrockets. He’ll likely see even more work going forward and is a must-have fantasy player.

Rishard Matthews, WR, Miami Dolphins: Miami didn’t have a whole lot to be happy about in Week 3, but Matthews was one of the few bright spots for the team. He would finish with six grabs on 10 targets for 113 yards and two scores.
Matthews now has over 100 yards in the past two games, and has scored at least 9.4 fantasy points in all three. Owners in 10-to-12-team leagues need to pick him up before the Jets game this weekend.
Marvin Jones, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: Jones has worked himself into the waiver wire conversation over the past couple of weeks, most recently in a five-catch, 94-yard outing against the Ravens that yielded his second touchdown in the past two weeks.
Jones is now firmly established as the No. 2 receiver on a quietly good Bengals team. He’s a must-add in any 10-team leagues or above before the Chiefs game.
Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills: If you’ve got Tom Brady sitting out on a bye this week (or Ben Roethlisberger injured), check out Taylor. He put up another fine performance against the Dolphins, logging 277 yards and three touchdowns.
Taylor enters Week 4 with a nice matchup against the struggling Giants. He’s a great pickup if you’re in need of a QB.
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seattle Seahawks: Marshawn Lynch owners will want to kick the tires on Rawls heading into Week 4. He played well in relief of an injured Lynch, logging 16 attempts for 104 yards on the ground.
Rawls and the Seahawks play on Monday, and with Lynch’s status up in the air he’s definitely a gamble. That said, if Lynch doesn’t end up playing we could see some nice stats here.
