Fanball FAAB – Week 4 Waiver Wire Advice

by and • September 24, 2019

Words by Rob Willette and Paul Charchian, spending recommendations by Paul Charchian

QUARTERBACKS

Daniel Jones  – Giants – 17% owned
The loss of Saquon Barkley will make things harder for Daniel Jones, but he’s still a mandatory add in QB-flex and 2-QB leagues. Jones blew away expectations last week with a commanding four-touchdown performance, and this week, he faces an easier opponent, the Redskins. Washington was the elixer that cured Mitch Trubisky of his ills last Monday.  The Redskins secondary is both injured and incompetent. Jones’ rushing ability will help spark some big fantasy games, although we certainly can’t expect two rushing touchdowns in most games. He averaged 36 rushing yards per game in college. The Redskins allowed Dak Prescott to run for 68 yards two weeks ago.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 15% in one-QB leagues, 40% in QB flex and 2-QB leagues

Jimmy Garoppolo – 49ers – 71% owned
Exactly one year removed from his ACL injury, Jimmy Garoppolo has looked incrementally better in each game. I’m seeing more confidence and more downfield passing.  (Side note: Neither of his two interceptions last week were his fault; both were perfect throws that were mishandled.) Jimmy G. averaged a healthy 8.66 yards per attempt on Sunday, and if you’re like me you get a point every time a porn star swoons when he takes off his helmet, he’s squarely on the QB1 map.  The Niners have a bye in Week 4, and in Week 5 we should see Garoppolo as healthy as he has been in a long while. With enough weapons at his disposal and an improving game, keep him on the radar for a date with a banged-up Browns secondary in Week 5.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 3% in one-QB leagues, 10% in QB flex and 2-QB leagues

Kyle Allen – Panthers – 3% owned
It was a single week against a defense as soft as a man in a BlueChew ad, but Kyle Allen was a revelation in Week 3.  He took over for a clearly hobbled Cam Newton and eviscerated the Cardinals. Four touchdowns later, Allen has put himself on the streaming map.  More importantly than simply looking competent, the Panthers appeared confident enough in Allen to let him toss the football around the yard. The Texans are getting ripped for 278 passing yards per game and the Panthers have an explosive duo complemented by a tight end going full Benjamin Button on all of us.  Allen’s a strong Week 4 play, and if there’s truth to the media reports that Cam Newton has a lisfranc injury, Newton will likely miss extended time.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 2% in one-QB leagues, 5% in QB flex and 2-QB leagues

RUNNING BACKS

Justin Jackson – Chargers – 29% owned
Surprisingly, Justin Jackson has not been considered a high upside handcuff despite the fruitful fantasy returns from the Charger backfield.  This is not to disparage Austin Ekeler; he is a very good back. But we forget what Jackson did when injuries ravaged the Los Angeles backfield late last year.  Jackson piled up 85 total yards and a touchdown as a spot starter in Week 15 against the Chiefs, and he’s looked explosive through two weeks, averaging 7.9 yards per carry in the first three games and chipping in 6 receptions over that span.  While still the clear second-fiddle, the Dolphins are on the agenda in Week 4, a defense which offers less resistance than the Washington Generals. Jackson is a potential plug and play flex option in Week 4, and a lottery ticket on your bench in case injury befalls Austin Ekeler.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 20%

Wayne Gallman – Giants – 7% owned
Sunday featured a miserable sight for fantasy owners: Saquon Barkley down.  Early reports indicate it is a severe high ankle sprain, an injury which most assuredly will keep Barkley on the sidelines for over a month.  Gallman did little in place of Barkley but it was a tough situation to enter as the Bucs have been tough against runners in the early season. The Clemson product is the definition of a JAG on the football field, but opportunity is king.  Daniel Jones breathed new life into the Giants’ offense and Gallman could be walking into 15 touches per game for the short-term. He’s about as exciting as a Bill Belichick press conference, but any back with a promising touch floor and ceiling should be added to see what shakes out.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 10%

Darrel Williams – Chiefs – 7% owned
The absence of Damien Williams led to the rekindling of the fantasy community’s romance with Darwin Thompson.  With Williams out and LeSean McCoy dealing with a malady of his own, it was expected to be Thompson’s breakout party.  Instead, it was Darrel Williams who got extended opportunity and ran with nine carries for 62 yards and an additional five grabs for 47 yards.  It is no stretch to say a street free agent could produce within this offense, but Williams has talent of his own; he was buried behind Leonard Fournette at LSU which limited exposure.  If the other D. Williams is slated to miss any additional games, this D. Williams is a plug-and-play flex option with additional upside if LeSean McCoy battles any more injuries.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 5%

WIDE RECEIVERS

Phillip Dorsett – Patriots – 32% owned
Mere days ago, the Patriots were lining up Antonio Brown, Josh Gordon, and Julian Edelman.  One Brown release and one Edelman injury later and the Patriots are Kate Moss-thin at the position.  We’re still unsure of how serious Edelman’s injury is, but most encouragingly, Phillip Dorsett has been simply sublime this season.  He’s now caught 29 of the past 30 targets sent his way and has played so well he has worked his way into the starting rotation. Shaking the bust label which followed him around after the start of his career in Indianapolis, Dorsett has become a player.  Even if Edelman is just fine, Dorsett’s play alone has earned an add. .

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 20%

D.J. Chark – Jaguars – 41% owned
Another week, another standout performance from D.J. Chark.  Chark was a premier deep threat at LSU (back when LSU was a prehistoric offense) and appears to have rounded out his game in Jacksonville, showcasing excellent body control and an aggressive mentality which has allowed him to thrive alongside gunslinger Gardner Minshew.  Chark has now been targeted 18 times over three games and is averaging an absurd 15.4 yards each time he is targeted. Oozing with talent and seemingly a perfect fit for the Jacksonville offense under Minshew, Chark is a priority add as someone who could prove to be a weekly starter.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 15%

Parris Campbell – Colts – 4% owned
Jacoby Brissett is coming off his best NFL game and the entire Colts passing offense is on the upswing. Parris Campbell is a rookie receiver who missed much of the preseason with injury, but has worked his way into the starting rotation. He just set a career-high with 45 snaps last week, up from 18 in Week 1. Campbell is strong and shifty after the catch–many have compared him to Percy Harvin. By the end of the year, he’ll close the gap between himself and TY Hilton. 

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 7%

Golden Tate – Giants – 37% owned
Likely drafted but later dropped, check to see if Golden Tate is on your waiver wire.  The New York Giants offense played like they received on a stay of execution on Sunday, looking reborn under Daniel Jones.  While the Giants were largely in comeback mode and aspire to have more balance moving forward, their defense is likely to enter them into a series of shootouts.  Beyond Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard, the Giants are thin on weapons and just lost Saquon Barkley for a large portion of the season.  

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 7%

Diontae Johnson – Steelers – 4% owned
The buzz following the benching of Donte Moncrief was the Mason Rudolph-James Washington connection we saw at Oklahoma State would finally be unveiled at the NFL level.  It led to a Treadwell-esque two receptions for 14 yards line from Washington which swiftly eliminated any helium around his fantasy stock. Instead, it was Diontae Johnson who earned six targets and found the end zone despite significant struggles from the Pittsburgh offense.  I believe both Washington and Johnson are worth utilizing your last bench on to see how this shakes out, but it is Johnson who has emerged as the preferred target early in the season.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 5%

TIGHT ENDS

Chris Herndon – Jets  – 12% owned
The early bye week stinks for Chris Herndon’s suspension because it presses his return timetable back to Week 6, but media reports suggest that he’ll be on the field with a poxless Sam Darnold. Needless to say, the Jets offense will be dramatically better with Darnold, and by many metrics, the Jets will have the easiest passing schedule upon his return.  You might be able to wait a week for Herndon, but he’ll only cost you $1 this week. 

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 1%

Dawson Knox – Bills – 1% owned
Dawson Knox was a revelation on Sunday, including a long catch and run in which he treated the Bengal defense with the same respect Michael Bay treats a script.  At this point in the season, we’re looking for players who could have an ascending role within an offense. With little behind John Brown at receiver and a barren tight end depth chart, the 3rd-round selection from Ole Miss could have wiggled his way into the passing game hierarchy.  Rookie tight ends are notoriously slow starters, but Knox is worth a swing if you’re desperate for some juice at the position.

Charch Blind Bidding Recommendation: 1%

Demetrius Harris – Browns – 1% Owned
A career backup on a scuffling offense?  Man, we’re setting this column on fire now.  Harris is strictly an opportunity play, as David Njoku was placed on IR with a wrist injury.  Harris played basketball at Wisconsin-Milwaukee (did you know there are Tight Ends who used to play college basketball?) and had some success behind Travis Kelce in Kansas City.  It is likely we forget all about Harris following his Sunday Night Football touchdown, but there are worse dart throws at fantasy’s thinnest position.
