Fantasy Football 2015: Week 4 Sleeper Picks
Taking a Look at the Week 4 Waiver Wire Trends
October 2, 2015
It’s a Week 4 fantasy football Friday, and that means it’s time for our look at the trending sleepers heading into the weekend. We’ve got a fresh crop of lower-end plays for you this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the stats and see who might make a good add for your team.
Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Carolina Panthers: Ginn has had a nice couple of weeks. He posted 41 yards and a score against the Texans, then followed that up with four grabs for 93 yards against New Orleans.
Ginn heads into a pretty good-looking matchup against the Buccaneers in Tampa this week and should do well. Keep in mind, however, that he’s on a bye in Week 5.

Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders: Carr is a very realistic consideration for this weekend if you’re in need of a quarterback. He posted 351 yards and three touchdowns against Baltimore, then logged 314 yards and two scores in Cleveland this past Sunday.
Carr gets a really nice matchup this weekend against an anemic Chicago defense and shouldn’t have too much trouble finding his way to the end zone a couple of times.
Coby Fleener, TE, Indianapolis Colts: There’s a bit of uncertainty here, but what would a sleeper be without that? Fleener made some big catches in his team’s win over Tennessee in Week 3, with six targets for four grabs and 51 yards.
Fleener benefited from fellow TE Dwayne Allen’s injury, so if Allen is limited this week it’ll definitely help. He’s a low, low-end TE for Jacksonville but could pay off.
Reuben Randle, WR, New York Giants: You’ll have to watch the status of Victor Cruz if you’re planning on using Randle, as that will have an impact on his targets. That said, Randle logged seven grabs for 116 yards and a score in Week 3 and will be going up against a pass-permissive Buffalo defense.
Randle is quite the gamble, but the big Week 3 is pretty encouraging.
TY Montgomery, WR, Green Bay Packers: Let’s go WR one more time and visit with Montgomery, who showed his potential in Week 3 against the Chiefs. He came up with two catches for 14 yards and a score in that one.
Montgomery benefits this week from the absence of Davante Adams and should see plenty of work with the injury situation there.
