After last week's injury-riddled Sunday, fantasy football rosters stayed mostly intact in Week 3 (though there are still some injury fill-ins worth considering as free agent adds this week). That's ultimately good news, but it makes our list oflook a little Mark Reynolds Jersey thinner. Fortunately, several rookie WRs, including Justin Jefferson,Tee Higgins, andBrandon Aiyuk, broke out and teased fantasy owners with future stardom. Quite a few veterans, such asRex Burkhead,Greg Ward, Allen Lazard, andJeff Wilson Jr., also stepped up and might be worth considering picking up this week, though it's unlikely any will require actual waiver claims (save for Carlos Hyde, pending the severity of Chris Carson's late-game knee injury). Sorry -- not every week features the consensus top-two preseason picks suffering serious injuries.Our has a bunch of potential pickups, though most fall into the "stash" category as we get closer to the bye weeks. Guys like Hunter Renfrow, James Washington, Andy Isabella, and Cordarrelle Pattersoncould have some value because of injuries to guys in front of them. Others, likeMyles Gaskin,Logan Thomas, Mo Alie-Cox, andCorey Davis, keep seeing a steady amount of work even if they aren't nece sarily putting up huge stats. It's all about opportunities in fantasy, so pay attention to more than just the yards and touchdowns. We also have some potential D/ST streamers at the end of this list because we feel much more confident about favorable/unfavorable matchups. If you lost because you played Joey Colorado Rockies Jersey Slye or Stephen Goskowski this week and want to find your own five-FG man for next week, you can torture yourself further and readour .MORE WEEK 4:| Unle s you're really desperate for a receiver or low-ceiling RB like Hyde, Gaskin or Adrian Peterson, this doesn't look like the week to use a high waiver claim. Some of these WRs look legit, if inconsistent, but they're not worthtop-five claims. It's not a bad idea for owners with low claims to snatch these guys up before they hit the free agent market, but you don't want to fall too far down the list because you know more serious injuries are coming this year. Hyde is the one exception if Carson is slated to mi s multiple weeks Blank Jersey .UPDATE: With news of the po sible COVID-19 outbreaks for the Titans and Vikings, fantasy owners of players of those teams and their opponents (Steelers, Texans), fantasy owners should prepare for the po sibility of being without them this week.WEEK 4 STANDARD RANKINGS: | | | | | Top fantasy football waiver wire pickups for Week 4Unle s otherwise noted, only players owned in fewer than 50 percent of Yahoo leagues considered. Justin Jefferson, WR, Vikings.Jefferson was a non-factor through the first two games (five receptions, six targets, 70 yards), but he broke out in a big way in Week 3, catching seven-of-nine targets for 175 yards and a score. A favorable matchup and a 71-yard TD helped him have such a big day, but he's capable of being an every-week starter if he gets regular targets. The Vikings haven't utilized their TEs this year, and as long as that keeps happening, Jefferson will have the opportunity for targets. He's well worth stashing ahead of the bye weeks.Brandon Aiyuk, WR, 49ers.Aiyuk didn't do much in his Week 2 debut (two catches, three targets, 21 yards, no carries), but his versatility was on full display in Week 3. The talented rookie caught five-of-nine targets for 70 yards and added 31 rushing yards and a score on three carries against the Giants. Deebo Samuel (foot) is expected to be out until Week 5, so Aiyuk will have another chance to establish himself as a trustworthy contributor in Week 4. Grab him now.MORE WEEK 4: | | Carlos Hyde, RB, Seahawks.Chris Carson exitedlate in Seattle's win over Dallas and was seen limping on the sideline due to an apparent knee injury. We'll certainly find out more about the severity of the injury throughout the week, but Hyde should be on everyone's radar as a top claim if Carson is expected to mi s any time. Travis Homer would also be a potential PPR flex if Carson is out against Miami.WEEK 4 PPR RANKINGS: | | | | | Jon Gray Jersey Tee Higgins, WR, Bengals.With A.J. Green looking like a shell of himself (despite getting frequent targets) and John Ro s III being a healthy inactive in Week 3, a receiver other than Tyler Boyd figures to step up for the pa s-happy Bengals. Higgins was that guy Carlos Gonzalez Jersey in Week 3, catching five-of-nine targets for 40 yards and two TDs. Higgins had six targets in Week 2, so he's trending upward. At 6-4, 216 pounds, Higgins can do damage all over the field, making him well worth a bench spot.WEEK 4 FANTASY: | | Allen Lazard, WR, Packers.Lazard took advantage of Davante Adams' absence by hauling in six-of-eight targets for 146 yards and a score on Sunday night. He clearly outshined Marquez Valdes-Scantling (one catch, four targets, five yards) and could see more targets once Adams (hamstring) returns. Either way, he's in play next week against a horrible Falcons pa s defense, so grab him while you still can.For additional waiver/free agent suggestions, including more breakoutsandpotential streamers, check out our full Week 4list.
