WAIVER WIRE WEEK 4

QB

Daniel Jones

Daniel Jones looked the part in week 3, and it looks like he will be the quarterback moving forward for the Giants. Unfortunately, he won’t get to play Tampa Bay every week but he’s a definite improvement from what they had. Saquon being out does hurt the offense all around, but the Giants will have to rely on the pass quite a bit. I don’t think Wayne Gallman is any kind of special talent, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the Giants brought in another running back. Jones gets Washington this week but then his schedule gets harder with Minnesota and New England. He’s a matchup dependent streamer at this point but, he has the talent to pass his way into QB2 status.

Jacoby Brissett

We talked about Brissett in our match up show and picked him to “beat the odds” being ranked QB19 for week 3. He played great against Atlanta, throwing for 310 yards and 2 scores.  He gets another favorable matchup in week 4 vs Oakland at home. I like him to finish as a solid QB2 in this contest, so stream him if you need a solid play!

RB

Wayne Gallman Jr.

Saquon Barkley is dealing with a high ankle sprain, and it looks like Gallman is the back to own for the Giants moving forward.  Gallman won’t come close to Barkley production.  In his rookie year he averaged under 3 yards a carry and hasn’t impressed much since then. It also would not surprise me if the Giants bring in a FA running back.  In the end I think this backfield ends up splitting between Gallman and whoever they bring in, making the upside for this play mediocre at best. A lot of people will be wasting their FAAB on Gallman this week, my recommendation is to let them do it and keep yours.

Darrel Williams

The narrative going into the week was Damien Williams was out, and McCoy was banged up.  Darwin Thompson hype was again at an all time high and everyone said he was going to get another look. Then Mr. Darrel Williams stole the show and ended up leading the KC backfield in touches.  McCoy did play but tweaked his ankle late.  Darrel is the obvious “handcuff” to own as it looks like he has earned the trust of Andy Reid.  Even if the other backs are healthy, Darrel isn’t a bad back to take a flier on.

WR

Phillip Dorsett

Antonio Brown is gone, and this left the door open for Dorsett.  He saw seven targets from Brady, catching 6 of them with a touchdown. Edelman left the game with an injury and his week 4 status is up in the air. The Patriots are looking like the Patriots of old and seem to want to pass the ball down field again. Dorsett is a solid WR3 with WR2 upside that can help you with Bye weeks coming up.

TE

Will Dissly

Dissly now has 3 touchdowns in the last two games!  The TE landscape is crap and if you can get Dissly in your lineup, he has great touchdown upside every week. In week 4 he gets the Cardinals who basically hand out touchdowns to TE’s when they walk out of the Locker room.  He saw 7 targets in Week 3 and I look for this to continue in Week 4.

Some other pickups I like if they are available in your leagues….Diontae Johnson, Preston Williams, D.J. Chark, Chris Herndon, Brian Hill.
