Fantasy Waiver Wire Week 4

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 4: Add Achane ASAP

If you drafted as many Miami Dolphins players as possible, you're probably feeling pretty good about your fantasy football team heading into Week 3. If you wrote the Dolphins off and faced Tua Tagovailoa, Raheem Mostert or Tyreek Hill over the past few weeks, you've probably got the fantasy blues.

In any case, we have our NFL fantasy football waiver wire for Week 4 to help guide your selections.

Whether your team needs a full rebuild, or you’re simply looking to add some firepower, we've got you covered.

Quarterbacks to Target

Unsurprisingly, the quarterback position remains the easiest to fill in fantasy football. Although rookie passers may not be the most reliable, the No. 2 overall pick is a priority fantasy football pickup on the waiver wire heading into Week 4.

CJ Stroud, Houston Texans: Stroud makes his 2nd consecutive appearance on this list after a career day in Houston's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Still rostered in only 16% of leagues, the rookie signal-caller needs to be picked up if you're still having trouble with shaky quarterback play. Stroud is the new favorite in the Offensive Rookie of the Year odds for a reason.

Stroud looks extremely comfortable in the Texans offense and has now scored 20+ fantasy points in consecutive weeks. While the Steelers defense is a tough fantasy matchup, the Ohio State product has the Falcons, and Panthers on deck in the coming weeks. Pick Stroud up now before its too late.

Running Backs to Target:

De'Von Achane, Miami Dolphins: 

Achane looked every bit the offensive sparkplug he was at Texas A&M in his NFL debut. The rookie bamboozled Broncos defenders all afternoon, ending the day with 208 rushing yards and a record tying 4 touchdowns. Denver fans will be having nightmares of Achane for years to come.

Achane needs to be THE priority pickup on your fantasy football waiver wire this week. The only thing keeping the rook from fantasy stardom is the oft-injured 31-year-old Raheem Mostert. Do everything in your power to grab a piece of the Dolphins offense while you still can. If Mostert goes down, Achane could be a league-winner.

Other RBs to target: Roschon Johnson, Bears. Tyjae Spears, Titans.

Wide Receivers to target:

Quentin Johnston, Los Angeles Chargers: Another rookie makes an appearance on the fantasy football waiver wire. Quentin Johnston has been a forgotten man so far this season in a Los Angeles Chargers offense with a plethora of weapons. However, the rookie could be in for a much larger workload with the news that Chargers WR Mike Williams will miss the rest of this campaign with a torn ACL.

The former TCU standout has just 8 targets and 5 receptions so far this season. Now, he’ll step right into Williams’ role of downfield playmaker. With Kellen Moore ensuring the Chargers offense will be more vertical this season, and Keenan Allen eating up underneath targets, Quentin Johnston is a big play waiting to happen.

Just to make sure Johnston’s on your fantasy team when he goes off.

Tank Dell, Houston Texans: Yet another Texans rookie is making some noise. No, not CJ Stroud, or Will Anderson Jr. This time we’re focused on 3rd-round rookie Tank Dell.

Dell exploded against the Houston Texans last week, racking up 5 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. With Robert Woods an afterthought in this offense, Dell needs to be rostered in all fantasy formats. He's a threat to score from anywhere on the field, and could be a difference-maker for your fantasy football team.

Tight Ends to target:

Luke Musgrave, Green Bay Packers: Musgrave is on his way to a breakout week. Trust me, the Oklahoma State product will get there.

The rookie tight end has racked up a 16.1% target share and an average target distance of 13.7 yards that leads the position. His yards per target (8.3), yards per reception (11.3) and yards per team pass attempt (1.29), all rank in the top-3 at the tight end position. All that's left is the production. As soon as Jordan Love and Musgrave can hit the right note, the Packers offense, and the rookie tight ends' fantasy football numbers will take off.

Pick up Musgrave on your fantasy football waiver wire while he's still there.

Defenses to target for Week 4:

Cincinnati Bengals: Look, the Bengals defense have had their fair share of struggles so far this season. However, Cincinnati has managed 4 takeaways, including 2 interceptions of Matthew Stafford on Monday night. In Week 4, the Bengals get a cupcake matchup against the lowly Titans offense. Tennessee has averaged only 240 yards of offense and 15 points per game so far this season.

Lou Anaruma's unit has been particularly stout against the pass, allowing just over 200 passing yards per game so far. We're betting these cats can take the game to Tennessee and use a positive game script to generate some turnovers (and points) for your fantasy football team.
